A Legacy of Head-Turning Design
This past year has truly been a year of innovation at Dell, launching more products in more colors, flavors and designs than ever before. But Dell’s design evolution began well before 2008 and goes much deeper than slick designs and premium materials.
Since 2002 and the four design awards won that year, Dell has been bringing innovative products to life by combining the technical genius of our product engineers with the creative artistry of our worldwide design teams. And what strides we’ve made over the last three years - in 2006 Dell earned 5 more design awards, 8 more in 2007, and a record-breaking 48 in 2008.
The products below represent the best awards highlights of the many global design competitions won this year, including the Latitude E-Family ultraportable laptops, the Studio Hybrid desktop, the XPS One all-in-one PC and the Crystal display.
Latitude E4300 & E4200
With “attributes that speak to clarity, performance and sophistication”, the Latitude E4300 and E4200 ultraportable laptops earned top honors from the Japanese Industrial Design Promotion Organization.
iF International Forum of Design gave the Studio Hybrid the prestigious Design Award China 2008 Award in a competition that included thousands of competitors. This computer was also noted for its stylish colors.
Over 10,000 competitors from 60 countries, the XPS One was judged as a very capable and beautiful all-in-one desktop PC that “bridges the gap between lifestyle and elegance”.
Described as “elegantly innovative”, the Dell Crystal display holds its own among hundreds of competitors, featuring high-end materials and a premium glass frame that gives the illusion of a floating display.
