According to a preview from Dell’s latest Evolving Workforce Study,* flexibility and the ability to work anywhere continues to demonstrate considerable benefits for overall health and well-being than working from the office.

From the corner office to the coffee shop, the new Latitude 12 5000 Series joins the Latitude 14 and 15 5000 Series for a fully-featured, premium mobile experience to meet the needs of any mobile professional.

With an expansive 14” outdoor-readable display, everything can be seen clearly in bright and low light conditions and standard resistive touch means gloves can stay on. A customizable RGB backlit keyboard enables comfortable usability in all environments and Stealth mode allows users to go incognito with a simple keypress.

OptiPlex Micro: Out of Sight Power

Performance is far and away the most important aspect employees seek in a work device and desktop PCs are still popular among employees of all company sizes, according to preliminary results from Dell’s latest Evolving Workforce Study.* With a chassis design of only 1.2 liters, 67% smaller than Dell’s smallest desktop form factor, and with five different mounting options, the new OptiPlex 9020 and 3020 Micro PCs provide the power employees expect in a desktop that answers the needs of smaller – or more specialized – working spaces. One of the most secure and manageable desktop on the market, OptiPlex 9020 Micro is ideal for environments where space is limited and security is a priority, while the OptiPlex 3020 Micro provides essential business class performance in a compact unit.

Dell empowers next generation workforce to “meet their match” with latest range of devices

Singapore, Oct. 8, 2013 – Dell renewed its commitment to today’s ever-changing workforce with the unveiling of its latest range of end user computing products. Cloud computing, the consumerization of IT, BYOD, Big Data – these pervasive trends have fundamentally changed the way people work. People now work from anywhere, anytime and their technology choices reflect these changing needs. Dell’s new range of products comprises both built-for business ultrabooks and personal, everyday notebooks as well as printers and touch monitors that boast improved connectivity and functionality. These all-encompassing devices are dedicated to helping individuals meet their match, complementing different working habits and lifestyles.


“Asia Pacific is a key market for Dell, and we are fully committed to helping companies in the region drive transformation with our end-to-end solutions and services. We have delivered some amazing innovations to meet the needs of the evolving workforce. We are thus confident of our end user computing business and will continue to aggressively expand it in this part of the world,” said Peter Marrs, Executive Director & General Manager, End User Computing, Dell APJ.


Close to 840 million employees in the Asia Pacific region will be classified as mobile workers by the year 2015, according to research firm IDC’s Worldwide Mob ile Worker Population Forecast 2011-2015 report. Therefore, while the way people work is constantly changing, the need for security, manageability and reliability stays a constant. As a result, Dell has expanded its focus to provide end-to-end solutions and devices targeted at today’s evolving workforce.


For starters, Dell is unveiling its Venue line of tablets, with three new ultrathin models designed to address the changing way people live and work today. With compact designs that make it easy to stay connected on the go, the Dell Venue 7 and 8 Android-based tablets and the Venue 11 Pro, have an exquisite fit and finish.


Intel®, the company that revolutionized computing technology is now bringing amazing new experiences to tablets. New Intel Atom™ processors are designed and optimized for lightning fast apps, responsive Web browsing, stunning 3D graphics, advanced camera capabilities, and vivid HD video, with energy efficiency for outstanding battery life. Tablets with Intel Inside® deliver new experiences at the speed of life.


“Dell has been a trailblazer in delivering new user experiences for consumers and business customers across Asia Pacific and is today launching some great targeted offerings for the Asia market: new eleven inch notebooks and affordable Android-based tablets,” said Uday Marty, managing director for Intel South East Asia. “These great products and new 4th generation Intel Core™ processor based notebooks with tablet-like battery life and uncompromised performance keep pace with the mobile lifestyles of our APAC consumers and businesses.”

A more natural, more intuitive computing experience with touch screen technology

Dell continues to embrace the basic human instinct of touch with a series of products that are empowered with touch screen capabilities, enabling more users to experience touch. These devices, ranging from the latest laptops to touch monitors, bring together the fun and interactivity of a tablet and the power and functionality of a PC.


In particular, Dell’s new touch monitors are revolutionizing the touch experience.

Not just a PC maker, Dell has evolved its end user computing portfolio

Dell’s comprehensive end user computing portfolio extends beyond PCs to include multi-functional printers that empower businesses to do more than print and drive efficiencies by collaborating with digital data. One new model that will be unveiled later this month is the C2665, a color printer that combines over 30 uses into one nifty device. This printer takes the user experience to the next level with a “swipe” ready 4.3-inch color touchscreen with customizable operating panel and Near Field Communication, tap-and-print enabled capabilities.
