Alienware Proves That Laptop Size Doesn’t Have to Matter

When it comes to playing games, I’ve always preferred consoles to computers. Building (or buying) a custom gaming rig can be fun, but I need a dedicated laptop. And gaming laptops can definitely bring the power, but often with a size and battery-life trade-off that would make it impossible to use in any non-gaming scenario.

But the new Alienware 13 is changing my mind about gaming laptops. Read More >>

The Easiest Ways to Upgrade Your Computer Yourself

Dell’s New 17-Inch 2-in-1 Laptop is Bananas

Laptop 2-in-1s never creep past 15 inches, and the thinking seems to be that flipping around such a massive piece of machine would be unnecessarily awkward.

Dell XPS 15 Review: a Glimmer in the Macbook’s Shadow

The last time I owned a Dell computer was back at secondary school. It was an XPS M1330, which was—for the time—a powerful computer, and not cheap either. But after some wear and tear, the case started to break in interesting (see: unfixable) ways, the battery life tanked, and the fan got unreasonably noisy. I bought a Macbook Pro to replace it and never looked back. Read More >>
