Evaluation

As a high-end mobile computer focused on the graphic aspect, the product shows an extreme design with the feeling of the materials. We thought this has helped DELL differentiate itself from other companies to a considerable degree, and also shape a new feature of DELL by devising a design recognizable at a glance. The design of the peripheral accessories also presents a new concept by bringing unity with the computer. We believe that the use of recycled materials also emphasizes the product and design of today in consideration of the environment.
