Dell Launches New Range of AI Laptops

Dell has become the latest manufacturer to integrate AI into its laptops with the launch of five new devices aimed at consumer and commercial markets to make everyday tasks simpler and faster to complete.

Dell has expanded its portfolio of AI PCs and workstations with the launch of five new laptops – XPS 13, Inspiron 14 Plus, Inspiron 14, Latitude 7455 and Latitude 5455 – which offer a range of consumer and commercial options that the company says deliver exceptional speed and AI performance to elevate computing and simplify tasks.

The brand-new class of devices deliver extraordinary performance and battery life, upleveled productivity and powerful security, according to Dell. 

With AI processing locally on the device across the custom-integrated Qualcomm Oryon™ CPU, GPU and neural processing unit (NPU), Dell’s new AI PCs offer:

• Groundbreaking battery life

• 45 trillion operations per second of performance on the NPU, so AI tasks can be run more efficiently

• Instantaneous results when searching your own content using on-device Copilot. This means connection to the internet or the cloud isn’t required, making tasks more seamless, accessible and secure wherever the user is.

Amplified creativity

Built for AI, XPS 13 is Dell’s first XPS to feature Copilot+ powered by Snapdragon X Elite. The laptop now has powerful on-device AI that delivers cutting-edge responsiveness and impressive speed for navigating demanding workloads and freeing up time to be more creative, all the while extending time away from the outlet. XPS 13 is Dell’s thinnest and lightest XPS and now has all-day battery life of up to
27 hours. 

Consumers can also choose from two new Inspiron AI laptops with exceptional battery life. Both Inspiron 14 Plus (available in ice blue) and Inspiron 14 (available in titan grey) are crafted with light weight, low emissions aluminium and are energy efficient with EPEAT Gold rating.

Inspiron 14 Plus features the Snapdragon X Plus platform with up to 15 hours of battery life. The device offers an upleveled video and audio experience with quad speakers and a QHD+ display with 400nit brightness.

Inspiron 14 is powered by Snapdragon X Plus and provides an easy-to-use platform with features like voice commands and a mechanical privacy shutter for extra security.

Unmatched productivity 

New Latitude AI laptops with Copilot+ feature Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite 12-core and Snapdragon Plus 10-core processors, packing game-changing performance and exceptional battery life. Users can operate efficiently and smoothly throughout the day without needing to charge.

The Latitude 7455 is a premium AI laptop up to 21 hours of battery life stacked with a14-inch QHD+ touch display, quad speakers with AI noise reduction, Qualcomm® FastConnect™ Wi-Fi 7 and optional 5G for greater connectivity and collaboration. The all-aluminium chassis is built with a combination of low emissions and recycled aluminium.

The Latitude 5455 packs performance in a mainstream AI business laptop option with a 16:10 FHD+ display and dual speakers. Multiple layers of hardware and firmware security features also protect the laptop, from rigorous controls at the supply chain to deep defences at the BIOS level.

Beyond the device, new Dell Implementation Services for Microsoft Copilot solutions rapidly enable more efficient ways of working across the entire organisation, reducing risk and preparing the right users to fully adopt Copilot technologies.

New AI experiences 

Dell’s Copilot+ PCs include new exclusive AI experiences powered by Snapdragon X Series platforms, which allow users to take back time in their day and focus on the tasks that matter most.

For example, Recall remembers everything the user has done on the device and stores it securely on the PC, not in the cloud, making it quick and easy for users to pick up where they left off. Users can easily search for files and applications they were working on weeks ago using natural and descriptive language of what they remember to quickly get back to work.

Using Cocreator, users can create AI generated images using a combination of descriptive words and brushstrokes. Users can iterate the image in real time to make it exactly as they like.

Live Captions adds the ability to translate any live or pre-recorded audio from 44 languages to English, making it even more seamless to connect with friends and colleagues on video calls.

New Windows Studio effects adjust lighting and offer new creative filters to enhance call collaboration.

Auto Super Resolution uses AI to upscale videos and games in real-time for smooth streaming and gameplay.

AI connected ecosystem

Users can complete their AI ecosystem with one of two new keyboards, featuring a dedicated Copilot key for quick access to it.

The Dell Silent Keyboard and Mouse (KM555) – ideal for open office environments – provide silent typing, clicking, scrolling and gliding, in a space-saving compact design and offers up to 36 months of battery life.

The Dell Wired Collaboration Keyboard (KB525C), the world’s first wired collaboration keyboard for Zoom and Microsoft Teams, features dedicated keys designed for seamless performance during conference calls including microphone mute/unmute, video on/off, screen share and chat.

For those concerned with sustainability as they refresh their laptop fleet, Dell recovery and recycling services provide customers with a seamless and secure way to responsibly retire devices, while addressing their own sustainability goals. Dell says that with its Environmental Impact Report feature for Asset Recovery Services, it is the only OEM to offer a personalised, real-time report, dynamically updated and aligned with ISO 14000 standards.

Mark Linton, VP device partner sales, Microsoft Corp, hails the “thrilling” new era of AI PCs. “Our collaboration with industry leaders like Dell enables us to develop innovative devices that seamlessly integrate new AI experiences, enhancing our customer’s productivity and creativity like never before,” he adds. “Our deep engineering collaboration has been crucial in delivering productive and secure PCs for commercial, consumer and gaming customers for decades. With Dell’s launch of their Copilot+ PCs spanning Inspiron, XPS, and Latitude series, we will bring new AI experiences to life for consumers and businesses alike, taking advantage of on-device and cloud AI to empower individuals and organisations to achieve more.”
