It also features a 4 GB of system memory as well as 166 GB of flash memory. Unlike its bigger cousin, the 14-inch Inspiron 7480, Dell Inspiron 3181 will be made available on at $280.

Dell announces its latest line-up

In a bid to strengthen its market position, Dell announced its latest line-up of laptops and monitors.

The company made the big introduction at the recent IFA tech trade show in Berlin, Germany.

Dell’s latest line-up includes the 2-in-1 laptop-tablet Inspiron 7000 models, with support for Amazon Alexa voice command features. The second one is the new Dell XPS 13 laptop with a powerful dual-core Intel Core i3 processor.

Dell also announced the Vostro brand for small businesses. These new laptop models feature an 8th Gen Intel Core processors and a single sign-on fingerprint reader. Dell has added some options for better security, special security features such as storage for BitLocker and encryption keys.

In addition to laptops and Chromebooks, the company also announced a new 27-inch Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin. This new monitor, which claims by the company as the world's brightest 27-inch display in its class, has up to 600 nits of peak brightness and an edge-to-edge viewing. But its major attraction here is the monitor's thin profile, which measures only 5.5 millimeters at the edges. This new Dell monitor is scheduled to go on sale next month at $550.
