Dell’s New G5 15 SE Laptop Could Give Us a Preview of the Sony PS5’s Power

Four months after AMD announced SmartShift, we’re finally getting a taste of the new technology that will feature in a whole lot of gaming laptops going forward – as well as Sony’s PS5 later this year. Today, Dell launched the G5 15 SE, a new laptop equipped with the brand new Ryzen 4000 series CPU and the Radeon RX 5600M GPU, and, for the PS5 nerds, SmartShift. Read More >>

Alienware’s Upgradeable Laptop Still Holds Lots of Promise, But Not at That Price

Dell really wants you to choose its Alienware Area-51m over a high-end desktop. The company has called it a “desktop replacement” since the model’s inception, and not without reason: in addition to upgrading your memory and storage, you have the option to upgrade your CPU and GPU too. You can still do that with the upcoming Alienware Area-51m R2, which will be available 23 June, but a starting price of $3,050 (£2,517; UK pricing TBA) is not a cost-effective desktop replacement. You also can’t upgrade the soon-to-be previous model with a 10th-gen Intel processor or a RTX Super graphics card, but there’s a good reason why. (I’ll get into that in a bit.) Read More >>

After a Decade Away the Dell XPS 17 is Back, and the XPS 15 Has a Major Redesign Too

Earlier this year, Dell refreshed the XPS 13 to great results, and now Dell is coming back to revamp the rest of its best line of laptops with the new XPS 15 and XPS 17. Read More >>

New Leaks Give an Almost Complete Picture of Dell’s Upcoming XPS 15 and 17

Earlier this year, Dell refreshed its excellent 13-inch ultra portable laptop, the XPS 13, with faster components and an updated design. Now, thanks to leaks spotted on Dell’s French website, it appears the XPS 13's larger siblings, the XPS 15 and XPS 17, are due for updates soon. Read More >>

The 2020 Dell XPS 13 Is As Close As We’ve Come to Laptop Perfection

Dell is running into a real issue with the XPS 13, though in this case, it’s a good problem. Over the past couple of years, Dell has tweaked and refined its flagship 13-inch laptop to the point that we thought last year’s model was practically perfect. And now, Dell has released the new XPS 13 9300 with a more useful 16:10 screen, a larger touchpad and keycaps, slimmer bezels, and even better performance. At this point, the new XPS 13's only significant shortcoming is that it has just two USB-C ports instead of three, though in return you do get a built-in microSD card reader. Pretty soon, Dell isn’t going to have anything left to improve, and even though this new XPS 13 isn’t completely flawless, there’s no doubt it’s the best ultraportable on the market. Read More >>

CES 2020: The Newest Dell XPS 13 Is a Tiny Laptop That Promises Incredible Battery Life

Perfection is only an idea, so despite the current XPS 13 being an almost flawless ultraportable, for this year’s revamp, Dell’s general game plan seems to be giving you more of everything you want crammed into a body that’s actually two per cent smaller than before. Read More >>

Dell Just Kicked off its Black Friday Sale Too

Dell sells a lot of stuff. So much, in fact that it's really difficult to figure out what's what half the time. Seriously they don't really make much effort differentiating all of the models, which is rather annoying. But still, if you're in the market for a new PC of some kind, it's worth taking a look at all the deals. Read More >>

Dell XPS 15 Review: A Really Good Laptop for Almost Everything

There’s nothing like a trial by fire. So on my latest trip, I left my regular work laptop at home and grabbed the recently refreshed Dell XPS 15. With my destination more than 7,000 miles away from home and no backup machine to rely on, the XPS 15 was my command station for working on everything from writing stories to editing photos and videos, creating gifs, and even playing some games during my downtime. And over the course of a week, the XPS 15 was nearly flawless, performing even better than I expected while easily accommodating everything I threw at it. Read More >>

Alienware’s Big Redesign Comes to Its Thinnest Gaming Laptops

At CES Alienware announced a major redesign, featuring devices with soft-touch plastic and an overall look that was meant to be less aggressive with its gamer aesthetics. But new design only launched on Alienware’s enormous and enormously powerful Area-51M, a laptop that starts at £2,220 and requires a significant emotional investment due to its price and size. Now the more user-friendly redesign is trickling down to the thinner m15 and m17, and at first glance, this looks like one of the slickest gaming laptops we’ve seen. Read More >>

Dell is Experimenting With Foldable Display Devices, But Don’t Expect a Product Anytime Soon

Folding is hot, my friends. Small phones that fold out into big tablets and small laptops that fold out into bigger tablets. First, a whole slew of phone manufacturers showed off folding phones at CES and Mobile World Congress, and last week, Lenovo showed a prototype dual-screen PC. All the major players in the consumer electronics business are probably working on the problem, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that Dell is experimenting with folding display computer designs as well.

Dell XPS 13 Review: This Time It’s Practically Perfect

The Dell XPS 13 has been so dangerously close to perfect for so long that the latest iteration left me a little surprised. I was turning it this way and that to find something I could fault it for, not because I wanted to unfairly ding the product, it’s just that nothing is perfect. But Dell has so refined this version of its best 13-inch laptop that the issues with it are all minute and deeply personal. This is a near perfect laptop. Read More >>

CES 2019: Alienware Is Redefining the Gamer Aesthetic, Again

Every few years Alienware, Dell’s gaming-focused brand, dramatically changes its design language. In 2009 it moved from the alien-like aesthetic it had embraced for a decade to something more industrial and reminiscent of an 80s supercar. And starting in 2019, Alienware plans to roll out a slew of products created using a whole new style, beginning with the gorgeous Alienware Area-51m, which shares its name with the desktop that put Alienware on the map back in 1998.
