True Colour is standard with the wide-viewing angle IPS screen, and so isWaves MaxxAudio Pro audio software. The keyboard is backlit and spill-resistant, and the laptop itself is sub-20 mm thin and supports the new 802.11ac wireless standard. It’s priced starting at $749.99.
All-in-one desktops boasting thin displays
Dell’s new all-in-one desktops are the Inspiron 20 & 24 3000 Series models.

The Inspiron Small Desktop is powered by an Intel Braswell processor and has also been streamlined. Both models are available in glossy black with accented red and silver trim, and will be available in September
