Dell Releases Thin PCs, 5K Ultra-High-Res Monitor

Along with several new desktops designed for space-efficient business use, Dell on Thursday unveiled a new desktop monitor with super-high resolution. The UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K monitor features a resolution of 5120x2880, seven times that of ordinary high-definition displays.

Scheduled to go on sale in the fourth quarter of this year, the 27-inch UltraSharp 5K monitor will carry a suggested retail price of $2,500.

The monitor, along with Dell's additions to its Latitude and OptiPlex portfolios, are aimed at business users seeking to keep up with today's changing work styles, the company said. Businesses need ways to deal with "the complexity of supporting the wide variety of devices present in today's evolving workforce environment," said Kirk Schell, the company's vice president and general manager of commercial client solutions.

Dell's new releases include the Latitude 7000 Series two-in-one detachable laptop. The device features a business Ultrabook combined with a detachable tablet, along with a 13.3-inch display and back-lit keyboard. It also provides instant-on operations from sleep mode.

Set to hit global markets in mid-October, the Latitude 7000 two-in-one will be priced at $1,199.

In a lower price range is the new Dell Chromebox, a cloud-based PC aimed at small- and medium-size business users. Priced starting at $179, the Chromebox will be available starting Sept. 26.

Powered by a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, Chromebox for meetings also comes with a microphone/speaker and remote control. Already available in the U.S., its $999 price tag includes one year of software support and service.
