Dell has ditched consumer netbooks and confirmed it has no plans to launch new budget ultraportables based on Intel's upcoming Cedar Trail platform, shifting attention instead to ultrabooks. All of the company's existing 10-inch netbooks have been removed from sale, Llliputing spotted, with would-be shoppers pointed to the Inspiron 14R instead.
Dell apparently has two ultra-thin notebooks getting ready to hit the market, as they've turned up this week at the FCC. The notebooks sport super lean bodies and SSD storage drives that suggest they may be in the Ultrabooks category to compete with the MacBook Air. But they also manage to squeeze in plenty of ports that should be an advantage.
We got a glimpse at the upcoming Dell Latitude ST earlier this week, and now the company has outed the juicy hardware details for all. Like the rest of the Latitude line, the ST tablet is aimed at business users, even if a 10.1-inch tablet is something we're not entirely used to in that space. The slate runs a full version of Windows 7 with enterprise-class customizations and some targeted accessories, detailed in the official pics below.
It's a tough morning for HP in the aftermath of the webOS and PC business announcements yesterday, with a plummeting share price and long-time foe Michael Dell not missing the opportunity to take potshots at the ailing firm. HP may have beaten expectations for the last financial quarter, with net revenues of $31.2bn, but the market has still reacted negatively; the company's share price is down around 20-percent this morning, to around $23.50 a share, the lowest seen since mid-2005. Meanwhile, the Dell CEO has taken to Google+ to call out his old rivals. "They are calling it a separation" he sniped on Google+, "but it feels like a divorce."
After teasers, leaks and Michael Dell himself getting ahead of the rumor campaign in his excitement, it comes as little surprise to see the Dell XPS 15z notebook made official this morning. A new 15-inch mainstream notebook - and the harbinger to a fresh design ethos from the company - the XPS 15z promises stylistic and construction lessons learned from memorable models like the Dell Adamo. We caught up with Dell for some hands-on playtime with the XPS 15z; check out our first impressions after the cut.
