Other than the Inspiron desktop lineup, Dell also plans to launch Sandy Bridge upgrades to Latitude laptops, OptiPlex desktops as well as the Precision range of laptops and workstations. The updated products should be available in stores such as Croma, e-Zone, Staples and other Dell retailers across India.
The launch of many products using the Cougar Point chipset was delayed after Intel discovered an issue with a few SATA ports. Sam Burg, VP of Dell’s Consumer and Small/Medium Business group mentioned that Dell put a hold on affected Sandy Bridge powered products the when Intel announced the flaw. He also mentioned that other than the incorporating of the new platforms on upcoming products, there would also be a new form factor which Dell would display in June.
