[Launch Event] Dell Inspiron 13 & 14 - 7000 series consumer notebooks x My Awesome Café

"Since the first Dell PC was introduced in 1986, Dell has continued to shape the industry by breaking new ground and pioneering critical developments in home, small business and enterprise computing. We gather requirements directly through tens of thousands of daily customer interactions, organized events, social media venues and customer panels. Maintaining strong internal development capabilities, we spur innovation that delivers value to customers." -

It was an honour for me to be part of the media launch for Dell's latest launch of consumer notebooks; introducing the new Dell Inspiron 13 7000 series 2-in-1 and Dell Inspiron 14 7000 series. These two new innovations have with them distinctive features and powerful performances, wrapped in a beautifully slim design.
A perfect morning for the media launch held at My Awesome Café located at Telok Ayer Street.

Dell new Inspiron 13 7000 series 2-in-1 combines the powerful performance of a premium laptop and the versatility of a 13.3" tablet with built-in stylus. (Silver in colour)

Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 brings Dell Inspiron Series to a whole new level, with a 13.3-inch 10-finger capacitive touchscreen display on full HD resolution. Packed in a 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 Processor (for a robust performance), Windows 8.1 (for a smooth, versatile PC experience), 500 GB Hybrid Hard Drive (provide X14 more storage than a 32 GB tablet), spill-resistant backlit keyboard, precision touchpad, and a built-in passive stylus pen!

Built-in stylus: Sketch, take notes or retouch photos with the freedom of a built-in stylus. I guess this is one of the most attractive feature among the rest.

Stay charged: The Inspiron 13 keeps up with the needs for long battery life and energy efficient processors and graphics.

Ultimate versatility: Switch between laptop, tablet, tent or stand modes to update blog, edit photos, or stream your favorite shows.

Precision touchpad: A spacious precision touchpad keeps movements fluid to pan, pinch or zoom around the screen. Precise pointing and gesture recognition provide a responsive performance that’s smooth and quick.

Plenty of ports: Comes with a high-speed USB 3.0 port and an SD media card reader. Save time on large file transfers or link it to another monitor or TV with an HDMI port.

A showcase of the actual Inspiron 13 7000 series, looking sleek and style.
In my opinion, its powerful and versatile but too heavy to be a tablet and still a little heavy overall (1.66kg).

Dell new Inspiron 14 7000 series Powerful productivity. Powerful gaming.

So here's a look at the Venue; My Awesome Café!
A group pic with the friendly and fun-loving French guy of My Awesome Café. Franck Hardy, co-owner of the My Awesome Café personally went around Singapore and Malaysia to source for ideas and furnitures for the store!
He welcomed us with his biggest smile that morning, it lightens up everyone's mood!! 

A wide varieties of food and drinks available in their menu, ranging from Salad, Sandwiches, Croissants and Breakfast set and the pricing are also pretty reasonable! Perfect for brunch!

I ordered Ice Latte and it was made perfectly, just the way i want it! 
Thank you for the AWESOME Ice Latte served!
We ordered the Awesome Breakfast with Smoked-Salmon, comes with buttery Croissant, a full-size Avocado which cut into halves, generous amount of scrambled eggs and my favourite tomatoes at the side. On top of all, there is also a Quiche added to our plate which is super nice in every bite! A good blend of cheese and eggs in there! 
Their Chocolate Brownie and Banana cake were delightful, well and again, AWESOME!
Whoever has plans to come visit this place must give their desserts a try!!
It such a hearty nice feeling at the end of our meal, a gigantic fruit platter was served to us! YUMS!!

The place was incredibly designed. A time travel back to the old days with old school furnitures, from old school fans, old school desks and chalk board and many more interesting restorations of old items!

If you are not in a rush, do explore the back of the Cafe too!
A beautiful place indeed,

Thank you to these lovely girls (especially Jessie) and Dell for the warm invites! =)
