The laptops contain proprietary advanced power management (APM) and Plug-and-Play features unavailable in NT until later this year. Dell's APM technology controls PC Card power settings, clock synchronization and power usage levels. Monitor battery life by clicking on a taskbar icon. The Plug-and-Play features support hot swapping of most popular PC Card modems and network adapters.

Applications such as Microsoft Office or Norton Utilities can be preloaded.
