NEW YORK -- October 2, 2013

Dell today took a bold step in unveiling a new family of tablets and new
laptops, including a 2-in-1 Ultrabook. The Dell Venue line of tablets is
comprised of four new ultrathin models designed to address the changing way
people live and work today. Dell’s “damned sexy” tablets, as described by
leading Enderle Group analyst, Rob Enderle, deliver leading performance and
quality, backed by Intel processing technology. With compact designs that make
it easy to stay connected on the go, the Dell Venue tablets have an exquisite
fit and finish.

In addition to the versatile new Dell Venue tablets, Dell is introducing new
XPS laptops, each with breakthrough displays for a phenomenal viewing
experience with vibrant, crisp images in any available screen size. The new
XPS 11, the thinnest, most compact 2-in-1 in the world, also features the
first Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display on an 11.6-inch 2-in-1. The XPS 15
multimedia powerhouse boasts a stunningly thin design, and offers as an option
the first 15.6-inch Quad HD+ (3200 x 1800) display in the world, which is the
highest resolution available on a laptop of that size. Dell is also refreshing
its award-winning XPS 13 Ultrabook with faster processors, touch Full HD (1920
x 1080) display and improved battery life. With these three laptops, Dell is
leading the industry with the highest resolution displays possible.

“People today expect the best experience possible from their technology – they
are counting on it to keep them connected and move with them, wherever they
are,” said Sam Burd, vice president Dell Personal Computing Group. “The new
Dell Venue tablets and XPS laptops give customers the stellar experience they
expect from us, with performance that allows them to work how they want, when
they want, in a design they’ll be proud to show off and own.”

Dell Venue Tablets: Connect, Share and Access Content with Ease

Dell Venue tablets are designed to give people on-the-go a wide-selection of
sizes and options to meet their varying needs. From 8 and 11-inch
Windows-based tablets complete with keyboard and stylus options, to the 7 and
8-inch Android tablets, Dell has created a dedicated brand of tablets to meet
the needs of customers who are the epitome of the evolving workforce.

  *The Dell Venue 8 Pro and Dell Venue 11 Pro Windows 8.1-based tablets
    combine the level of performance, design and responsiveness end-users love
    while giving IT departments what they need - the ability to integrate into
    an existing corporate environment with full compatibility with current
    Windows applications and Microsoft Office integration. Both tablets
    feature optional advanced security features and services such as TPM and
    Dell Enterprise Services.
  *The lightweight Dell Venue 8 Pro runs Windows 8.1, has a bright HD IPS
    display, advanced connectivity options and provides long battery life so
    range anxiety is no longer an issue. People can also stay productive with
    Office 2013 Home & Student, included with the device, and the optional
    Dell Active Stylus.
  *The Dell Venue 11 Pro, also based on Windows 8.1, provides ultimate 2-in-1
    flexibility with the power of an Ultrabook, convenience of a detachable
    keyboard and experience of a desktop. Unlike competitive tablets, it has a
    user removable/replaceable battery, and its large, Full HD display with
    wide viewing angles makes it easy to read and create content while staying
    mobile. It is also available with a variety of keyboard and stylus

       *Dell Active Stylus makes it easy to annotate, draw or take notes.
       *Dell Slim Keyboard, designed for travel, also serves as a cover for
         the screen when folded up.
       *Dell Mobile Keyboard with integrated battery provides all day
         productivity with a full-sized keyboard while extending the battery
       *Dell Tablet Desktop Dock delivers full productivity on a desk with
         USB 3.0 ports, and dual display out ports for display extension.

  *The Dell Venue 7 and Dell Venue 8 Android-based tablets are affordable,
    feature-rich tablets for people who want to be constantly connected
    wherever they are. Both tablets have an upscale fit and finish, and are
    designed with longevity in mind with the right components so that
    customers will be just as delighted with their tablet one year from now,
    as they are on the day they take it out of the box.

All Dell Venue tablets are based on Intel processing power for speed,
responsiveness, and battery efficiency. The Dell Venue 7 and Dell Venue 8
feature Intel Atom Z2760 (“Clover Trail”) processors, while the Dell Venue 8
Pro and Dell Venue 11 Pro feature the new Intel Atom quad-core processors,
code named “Bay Trail.” The Venue 11 Pro offers up to 4^th Generation Intel
Core i3 and i5 processor options and Intel vPro for manageability.

Dell XPS Laptops and 2-in-1: The Ultimate Experience with Gorgeous Displays

Dell’s award-winning XPS laptop line just got even better with the new XPS 15
powerhouse laptop, the introduction of the XPS 11 2-in-1, and an update to the
flagship XPS 13 Ultrabook. In keeping with the XPS tradition of offering the
best computing experience in any product category, the XPS laptops and 2-in-1
feature machined aluminum, carbon fiber, vibrant displays, and Corning Gorilla
Glass NBT for performance, durability and the ultimate experience.

  *Starting at 2.5lbs^i and just 11-15mm thin, the XPS 11 is the world’s
    thinnest, lightest and most compact 2-in-1 Ultrabook available today,
    offering a tablet-first design with laptop functionality. It easily
    transitions from tablet to laptop with a 360 degree rotating hinge design,
    and an innovative solid surface backlit touch keyboard that provides a
    superb experience from lap to bag. With a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display,
    the highest resolution display in an 11.6-inch 2-in-1 today, the XPS 11
    has a bright, crisp viewing experience. The display also features True
    Color viewing powered by eeColor, which enables customers to enjoy true,
    rich consistent color in nearly any lighting environment.
  *The XPS 15 continues to be a multimedia powerhouse delivering the highest
    resolution in its class, and incredible power in an ultra-thin, light
    wedge design, starting at 4.44lbs^i. The XPS 15 is the first 15.6-inch
    laptop in the world to feature a Quad HD+ display, and also available with
    a touch option, boasts over 5.7 million pixels – five times the amount of
    standard HD – for jaw-dropping resolution. Designed for creative
    enthusiasts, the XPS 15 packs 4^th Generation Intel Core i5 and i7 quad
    core processor options and NVIDIA discrete graphics options. Every XPS 15
    boots and resumes within seconds with hard drive configuration options
    from 500GB to 1TB^ii, both with a 32GB mSATA SSD, to a 512GB solid state
    drive, all including Intel Rapid Start Technology^iii.
  *The award-winning XPS 13, with its 13.3-inch, edge-to-edge display that
    innovatively fits into a footprint similar to an 11-inch laptop, is razor
    thin and light, starting at under 3lbs^i. It is now even faster with 4^th
    generation Intel Core processors, Intel HD 4400 graphics, and has longer
    battery life for the mobile professional who values a sleek design,
    responsiveness and ultimate mobility. Its Full HD display provides a
    brilliant viewing experience and is now even more versatile with a touch

“Dell appears to have its innovative mojo back,” said Tim Bajarin, President
of Creative Strategies. “These new products clearly emphasize Dell’s
commitment to create innovative mobile solutions for businesses and consumers
and I believe represent some of the best products they have made in many

products, helping users build their own “personal cloud” and remotely manage
personal and professional content. By combining PocketCloud with the
