For creative professionals, desktops have always been a preferred mode to give wings to their ideas but Dell now has a beast in its XPS family that promises to enhance both your work and personal success.

Although Dell has also introduced an upgrade to XPS 15 laptop with a 4K OLED screen and 9th Gen Intel processor, the previous iteration of XPS 15 is nonetheless worth trying, if you are looking for a premium look with super powerful interiors.

XPS 15 (Rs 2,55,000 inclusive of GST) with 8th Gen i9 Intel processor can deliver up to 50 per cent more performance than 7th Gen processors and up to 20 per cent more graphics performance.

Powered by NVIDIA Pascal — the most advanced GPU architecture ever created – the XPS 15 has the latest and greatest Pascal architecture — the “GeForce GTX 1050Ti with Max-Q” design.

Let us see how XPS 15 fares when put to professional use.

Design-wise, the machine is crafted precisely from materials like machined aluminum, carbon fibre and hardened Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for better durability.

The XPS 15 is cut from a single block of aluminum, so it’s more durable than a machine that’s pieced together.

The innovative “InfinityEdge” display make the XPS 15 the smallest 15.6-inch performance laptop. It is a 15.6-inch laptop in an 14-inch footprint, and is also one of the lightest — starting at just 1.8 kg.

Screen is just fantastic. The optional 4K Ultra HD display gives 1500:1 contrast ratio for stunning clarity and vivid colours.

Professionals can see full colour representation of their content in the field and on their display with exactly the same colours represented.

Creating high-end graphics, maps and charts were so smooth on the machine that we never felt the need for a high-end desktop.

For the content that is not already in Adobe RGB format — like a web page or a movie — “PremierColor” software remaps the colours easily so you are able to see them accurately on screen.

Coated in 0.65 per cent anti-reflective coating, the screen with 400-nit brightness offers no-glare when working outside.

On the performance front, the first Intel Core i9 mobile processor with up to 6 cores and 12 threads delivers more single and multi-threaded performance than 7th Gen — with the ability to overclock.

This is Intel’s most-powerful mobile platform for creators that enables faster 4K video editing with “Adobe Premier Pro” software.

When it comes to machine’s memory — up to 32GB at 2666MHz is 1.2 times faster than 2133MHz memory. It means you get to the content that you need quicker and aren’t slowed down by the memory-intensive apps.

Creating high-end graphics, maps and charts were so smooth on the machine that we never felt the need for a high-end desktop.

XPS 15 has “Dell Power Manager” application that allows user to customize based on their preferences between quiet, ultra-performance, cool and optimized modes. For example, quiet mode is 50 per cent quieter than the other modes.

Pre-loaded with Windows 10 Pro, XPS 15 also has a fair battery life in any 15-inch laptop to keep you unplugged on the go.

You can add accessories like connecting your XPS 15 to Dell Thunderbolt Dock for the ultimate display performance (up to three Full HD displays or two 4K displays) and faster data transfers.

Conclusion: If you are running a small and medium business or work on your own as a creative professional, this Dell machine would surely make your day-to-day life easy when it comes to multi-tasking and delivering meaningful experiences to your clients. (IANS)

The ‘data king’ of the world and founder of IT giant, Dell Technologies, Michael Dell feels that the next decade would be driven and shaped by data, and India could be one of the significant players. In an exclusive interview with IANS, here at the company’s Global headquarters the American billionaire businessman and Chairman of Dell, one of the world’s largest technology companies said that India figures as the topmost destination for his enterprise in the years to come.

From building a microsensor into a small finger ring to transforming autonomous vehicles, including aircraft by redefining artificial intelligence (AI), Dell seems determined to shape the world by the next decade through a revolution in processing and storing data.

“Dell is the only company in the world capable of achieving this objective…and I feel India has the potential to be a centre of excellence for us,” said Michael Dell, who leads the IT company which has a revenue worth over $90.62 billion, adding, “I would be visiting India soon and our company has ambitious plans to expand in a country known for its intellectual capabilities.”

Talking about Digital India, Dell said that it’s an excellent initiative of the government (led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi). “The Make in India (project) also impresses us. But it would be more appropriate if India focuses beyond manufacturing smartphones, (hinting that a lot more is happening in the manufacturing business related to IT). India has to focus on other areas too,” Dell told IANS during an interaction at Dell Technology Summit.

“If you look at the countries of the world and compare them with India, the outcome of human progress is tremendous. It (India) has all the possibilities to enhance its capabilities…and Dell is excited about this,” he said.

The 54-year-old billionaire with net worth of over $31 billion, is seen as one of the topmost philanthropists from this part of the world. His company is empowering people from economically weaker sections with software technology.

For instance, a door to door delivery salesboy from Boston, was recently trained in software skills and has now become part of the Dell engineering. Girls of a similar profile from Brazil have also joined the Dell team. Such examples are innumerable. By the next few years, Dell Technologies also dedicates 50 per cent of the jobs to women.

“In India, we are working with Tata Trusts in the field of social and health care services, and we have reached 11 million people. By the next few years we will try to reach 44 million. We have also set up a Dell Medical University in Austin, and we are focussing on providing innovative medical services to the unaffordable.

“Our social commitment would be a top priority for the next 35 years. In the last 35 years Dell has grown from a small company to a global giant….and in the next 35 years we not only want to lead the world of technology but also want to focus on people who have been lagging behind in society. The world has to be better for everyone, in many ways,” said Michael Dell, once (in 1992) the youngest CEO of a Fortune 500 company to becoming a leader in shaping the future of the world. (IANS)
