A new line of Dell laptops will be available in the United Kingdom from the end of the year for a price tag of just £7,399 ($8,835).
The laptops are the company’s latest attempt to appeal to techies with its popular Dell line of notebooks, and are expected to appeal mainly to those with a budget who are looking for a PC with the latest features.
The Dell Chromebooks will be priced at around £600 ($800), but will be manufactured in Taiwan, the US, Canada, South Korea and Europe, where Dell has factories.
The laptops will also include a number of apps for Android, such as Microsoft’s Office suite and Adobe Photoshop CS5, with an option for Microsoft Edge, which is still not available in any of the UK’s other PC vendors.
Dell’s laptops will have an Intel Celeron processor, 16GB of RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics card.
The company says the laptops will run up to 10 hours of battery life and feature a keyboard with a trackpad and a fingerprint scanner.
The company says that it will be releasing the laptops on the company website on March 20, with the first batch of units due in March.
Dow’s new line-up of products comes at a time when the market is undergoing a significant shift from PCs to smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
The tech sector is undergoing significant disruption due to the growth of Apple, Google and Amazon, with Google’s Android operating system gaining popularity and Microsoft’s Windows Phone losing ground in the US.
