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.

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 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.

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 >>
