BERLIN—Dell made a slew of product announcements here at IFA today, including additions to existing lineups and a new VR/AR headset, the Dell Visor.
The Visor, capable of virtual and mixed reality, includes dual 1,440-by-1,440-resolution panels that aim to deliver a smooth 360-degree experience on PCs. It's all white with an "anti-stain coating," easy thumbwheel size adjustment, and a flip-up visor so you can see real-world surroundings without taking the Visor off.
Dell is one of the major PC manufacturers Microsoft announced would be creating headsets for the Windows 10 platform, a list that also includes Acer, Lenovo, Asus, and HP. The Dell Visor will be available on Oct. 17 for $359.99, and you can pick up its controllers for $99.99.
Of course, Dell also has a fresh series of Inspiron laptops on which you can use the headset, including 2-in-1 convertibles and traditional notebooks, all launching on Oct. 3.
New 13- and 15-inch Inspiron 5000 Series models will be available starting at $749.99, boasting eighth-generation Intel processors, full HD displays, and optional Dell Active Pens ($50 extra).

Similarly, there will be new 13- and 15-inch Inspiron 7000 Series units this fall, with more advanced specs available. Full HD IPS panels are default on both sizes, but the 15-inch model can be configured up to 4K with an Nvidia GeForce 940MX. These laptops features narrow bezels for a smaller footprint, USB-C, and standard SSDs with optional NVMe SSDs. The Inspiron 13 7000 will start at $899.99, while the 15 begins at $849. There is also a 17-inch 7000 Series 2-in-1 on the way for $949.99 with up to 1TB of storage, 940MX graphics, and eighth-generation processing.
If you prefer your laptops in non-convertible form, new standard 13- and 15-inch Inspiron 7000 Series laptops will start at $799.99. These come with similar spec options to their 2-in-1 stablemates, but are available in non-touch as well.
Last but not least is a fresh XPS 13 model. The premium metal and carbon fiber laptop will feature a Quad HD+ display with InfiniteEdge for super thin bezels and optional touch capability. The new iteration will include Intel's eighth-generation processors and launches on Sept. 12 starting at $799.
