The imagination of customers and millions of interactions with them every day are at the heart of groundbreaking new Dell products and services introduced today.
"It used to be that people had to keep up with technology, but now it is about technology keeping up with their imagination," said Michael Dell, Chairman of Dell Inc. "Our customers are becoming their own publishers, they choose how they want to be entertained and informed and it is their direct feedback that will drive Dell's innovation."
Mr. Dell unveiled a new high-end gaming desktop, two flat-panel monitors, a product bundle designed to "gear up" any home and a new service available later this year.
New Products At the heart of the new products introduced today is the XPS 710 H2C for PC enthusiasts and high end gamers.
The system, a first, incorporates a two-stage cooling process. First, a liquid-to-air heat exchanger works like a car?s radiator and fan system to remove heat from the processor. Then, ceramic-based thermoelectric cooling modules like those used in space shuttles remove additional heat. Sensors help prevent the formation of frost or condensation by helping to keep the processor slightly above ambient room temperature.
The XPS 710 H2C starts at $5,499 and is available worldwide.
The company also unveiled two new flat-panel monitors. Favored by gamers, photographers and digital-media experts, the company?s first 27 inch widescreen monitor has a 30-percent broader color spectrum than traditional monitors. The second, a 22 inch widescreen model, is rich in features and ideal for watching videos and playing games.
Both are available immediately worldwide, and priced at $1,399 and $329, respectively.
Mr. Dell also introduced a Home Media Suite, a product bundle that will gear up any room of a home. It includes a new digital television tuner that when combined with other products delivers a full, seamless digital-entertainment experience, including receiving and recording premium high-definition digital cable and streaming it wirelessly to other parts of the home.
The bundle includes an XPS 410 desktop, Windows Vista when available, digital TV tuner, 27-inch flat panel monitor, speakers, Dell All in One 966 printer, and an 802.11 dual band router and power line bridge. It will be delivered with all cables and adapters required for a typical home installation. Dell also will offer optional in-home service to set up the equipment.
The bundle will be available in the United States after the introduction of Microsoft?s Vista operating system later this month.
