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.

CES 2019: Dell Might Have Just Perfected the XPS 13

Dell’s XPS 13 has been one of the best ultraportable laptops on the market for years now. It’s sleek, it’s stylish, and it’s often cheaper than an equivalent Mac.

The problem is that, like many big companies, those high-spec machines don't come cheap.

The Latest Breed of 2-in-1s Have Finally Realised the Hybrid Dream

Even though they don’t look much different than a lot of other hybrid laptops, the release of the Dell’s XPS 15 2-in-1 and HP’s Spectre x360 15 is an important moment for today’s convertible PCs. That’s because by putting powerful, but not exceedingly expensive GPUs inside already flexible machines, it feels like 2-in-1s are finally ready to deliver on what made the idea of convertible computers so exciting in the first place.

CES 2018: Mobile Connect Is Dell’s Answer to Apple Handoff

The diversity of the Android and Windows ecosystems are one of their biggest advantages over Apple’s alternatives. However, with two different companies in charge of development, sometimes it’s hard to get everyone together to create the kind of tightly integrated platforms Mac and iPhone fans are so proud of.

CES 2018: Dell’s XPS 15 2-in-1 Wants to Be the Anti-MacBook Pro

Dell got CES 2018 started early when it debuted its fully redesigned flagship ultraportable last week. But the XPS 13 isn’t the only new premium system the company is showing off, and in some ways, it might not even be the most exciting, because now for the first time ever, there’s a 2-in-1 version of the XPS 15.

The Dell XPS 13 Is Now Way Faster, Smaller, and Available in White

Dell’s XPS 13 is one of the top ultraportables on the market. But after three years of spec refreshes without touching the design, things were beginning to feel a bit stale. That’s why for 2018, Dell is overhauling its premium ultraportable with a revamped chassis in addition to 8th-gen Intel CPUs, and claims of even better battery life. Oh, and for the first time, the XPS 13 also comes in white. Read More >>

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. So it used to be that if I wanted to game, it was easier to for me to spend money on an Xbox One S or PlayStation 4 Pro, rather than messing with PCs. But the new Alienware 13 is changing my mind about gaming laptops. Read More >>

The Easiest Ways to Upgrade Your Computer Yourself

Upgrading your computer can be a great way to save a little cash. It can also be a great way to fulfil that need most gadget geeks have for getting cool new stuff on a regular basis. But upgrading can also be shockingly expensive if you’re not careful (steer clear of Apple’s overpriced RAM), and it can seem especially daunting to upgrade if you’re not familiar with the insides of your computer.

Dell’s New 2-1 Laptop Charges Wirelessly

Dell’s known for making fantastic laptops, but the company, in the past, hasn’t exactly been known for its innovation. So the new Latitude 7285 2-in-1 feels like a pretty damn delightful departure for Dell, as it’s the first 2-in-1 to gleefully embrace wireless charging. Read More >>

Dell Insists Its Canvas 27 Isn’t a Microsoft Surface Studio Clone 

It was only a matter of time before we’d see our first clone of Microsoft’s Surface Studio. The uber-expensive new desktop computer is part iMac, part Wacom Cintiq display, and all kinds of cool looking. But when Dell showed Gizmodo the new Dell Canvas 27, a 27-inch touch-enabled display meant for artists and other creative types, the rep bristled at the clone label. Read More >>
