To facing the market needs are changing, but Dell did not product a new product to catch up the customers. For the challenge of facing tablet competitors, Dell have developed and launched new products-XPS 10 tablet and XPS ultra book. There is using Windows 8 software, combine the touch screen devices and Internet-based. XPS ultra book is a ultra book and Tablet combinations, When you reverse the screen, it can change to a tablet. Dell should be conduct a series for the promotion of new products to improve product awareness and use price reduction strategies to increase the total revenue. Dell’s market position is provides low price and high quality computer products, and well order service.
