Dell offers new 2-in-1 options and a new Dell Canvas design

Dell has quite a lineup for 2017

It was a big year for Dell at CES, the company unveiled a wide-array of new devices, monitors, laptops and computers, and all of them will be hitting store-shelves later this year. The company’s entire Dell PC portfolio features Windows 10 this year, and is paired with the new 7th Gen Intel Core processors.

One of the biggest unveilings this year was the Dell Canvas, a new work-station that may rival Windows new line of creative devices. The company has been working on the device, in different stages, since 2014 and it looks pretty fantastic. Dell calls the Dell Canvas a “smart workspace technology,” one that was built for creative productivity, content developers and designers.

The workstation is a 27-inch QHD screen, and can be used at an angle or flat on a desk. Creatives can use touch-controls, a digital pen, or the new totems to create content like never-before on a Dell. Developed in partnership with Microsoft, the computer runs alongside any Windows 10 device. The Dell Canvas plugs seamlessly into software solutions from partners including Adobe, Autodesk, AVID, Dassault Systems, SolidWorks and Microsoft.

Dell also brought the XPS 13, and the XPS 15 to CES this year. Dell added the XPS 13 2-in-1 to its line-up this year, calling the device “the world’s smallest 13-inch 2-in-1”. The new computer offers a 360-degree hinge, and up to 15 hours of battery life. The display is a new QHD+ (5.7M pixels) InfinityEdge touch display, which Dell points out is another first for a 2-in-1 system. The XPS 13 also has a fan-less design, so it will be silent and fast to boot with its SSD drives. Business customers can choose the XPS 13 2-in-1 with a 7th Gen Intel Core vPro processors, and Dell BIOS and manageability software. The XPS 15 also offers the 7th Gen Intel Core processors, built with a NVIDIA Pascal architecture, and a fingerprint reader.

The new All-in-Ones, or AIOs, were co-created with Jack Joseph Puig, a Grammy award winning producer and director of creative innovation at Waves Audio. The new XPS 27 AIO offers a built-in 10 speaker system. The screen is a 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) edge-to-edge touch display, supporting 100 percent Adobe RGB color gamut. The Precision AIO delivers more performance options with Intel Xeon processors, AMD Radeon Pro graphics capable of powering VR and ISV certifications.

Dell also introduced the UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD 8K Monitor, the world’s first 32-inch 8K resolution display. The device offers 1 billion colors, 33.2M pixels of resolution, 100 percent Adobe RGB and sRGB color gamut and 280 ppi. The company also introduced several models aimed at the general consumer, equipped with new HDR features. New monitors with the HDR feature include: the Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor with an InfinityEdge display, Quad HD technology and USB Type-C connectivity, and the Dell 24 and Dell 27 InfinityEdge Monitors. Those models will also feature dual 6W external speakers professionally tuned by award-winning Waves Maxx Audio.
