  • PC hardware vendors are busily building their Windows 8 portfolios, and following its XPS announcements at IFA in August, Dell today showed off a trio of business-class products in London.

    The 23in. Optiplex 9010 All-In-One desktop, 14in. Latitude 6430u ultrabook and 10.1in. Latitude 10 x86 tablet all combine IT-manager-friendly security and manageability features with form factors and functionality that will, the company hopes, satisfy users' BYOD cravings.

    The new products will all be available when Windows 8 launches at the end of October, but no pricing is available yet.

  • OptiPlex 9010 AIO (touchscreen version)
    The standard (non-touchscreen) OptiPlex 9010 AIO is already available, running Windows 7 Professional and starting at £779 (ex. VAT). Today we got a first look at a Windows 8 model with an optional edge-to-edge multipoint touchscreen and an articulating stand.

    The OptiPlex 9010 AIO can be specified with a range of third- and second-generation Intel Core processors, all supporting vPro with Dell's custom extensions for remote BIOS updates and remote hard drive wipe. Up to 16GB of DDR3 1,600MHz RAM is supported, with storage options including a 1TB 7,200rpm hard drive, a 500GB hybrid HD/SSD drive, a 128GB SSD and a 320GB Opal/FIPS-certified self-encrypting drive.

  • The OptiPlex 9010's articulated stand lets you position the 23in. display for an optimal touchscreen experience.

  • Latitude 6430u ultrabook

    Sounds nice but from what I understand it does not have a touch screen and the resolution could be better.
    I am hoping that Samsung will add multi touch to it's series 9 that already has a HD screen.

    • 6430u resolution

      Yes, the resolution is 1366 x 768, and it's not a touchscreen

  • Looks like same old hardware.

    These computers look like the same old hardware with windows 8 stuck on them. I don't see the improvement.
