A list of features and images are often enough to help you decide which laptop or computer suits your needs best, but sometimes having the chance to touch and try the product can really help.

That’s why we have just launched an exciting hands-on experience in the main departure lounge in London’s Heathrow Terminal 5 airport.

Live until April, our dedicated ‘travel hub’ means that passengers can check out the latest Dell XPS range and try out new Windows 8 games, apps and features whilst they wait for their flight. Friendly Dell experts will also be on hand to help answer any questions you may have. 

Designed in the shape of a world map with LED lights highlighting the different time zones, the inviting hub is fitted with innovative XPS 12 convertible Ultrabooks, XPS 10 tablets, XPS 13 Ultrabooks and striking XPS One 27 all-in-one desktops so passengers can check the weather at their destination, Skype friends - or just for catch up on the latest news, sport and their social feeds.

Business travellers in Heathrow Terminal 5 can also relax with an XPS 12 or XPS 10 in the brand new South Club Lounge. With WiFi readily connected, users can grab one of the stylish tablets or convertible Ultrabooks from one two Dell tablet bars and sit back to surf the web, check the latest business news or play games and watch movies – after all, the XPS range has been designed for both work and play!

Visitors to the hub can take advantage of exclusive offers and discounts, including £100 worth of accessories with any XPS 10 or XPS 12 purchase. Those of you in the UK should also keep an eye on our DellHomeUK Facebook page and @DellHomeUK Twitter feed for details on a social media contest we’ll be running towards the end of February where you can share your favourite holiday destination to be in with a chance to win an XPS 10.

 If you’re heading to Heathrow T5 in the coming weeks, make sure you visit the Dell Travel Hub – as the XPS 10, XPS 12 and XPS One 27 feature the latest touch technology, you’ll literally find information, email and the latest Windows apps at your fingertips!
