The Alienware brand is as venerable a name as any in the gaming space. As Alienware celebrates over twenty years in business, its computers have become instantly recognizable thanks to distinctive, out-of-this-world styling, and science-fiction references. Dell purchased Alienware in 2006 to complement its own competing line of XPS-branded gaming machines. However, Dell has kept a largely hands-off approach, allowing Alienware to grow its own business and continue meeting consumer's expectations. So far, it has served both brands well. Alienware currently maintains three desktop families from the... Read more...
Microsoft is definitely doing everything in its power to push Windows 10 onto customers before the July 29th free upgrade offer expenses. However, if performing the Windows 10 upgrade on your current PC is too difficult, you can always take it into a Microsoft Store to have the “Answer Desk” crew install the operating system for you for free. And that’s where interesting part comes in. Microsoft has been running a rather intriguing promotion right under our noses for the past few weeks, and if you by chance qualify, you could become the owner of a brand new PC. Simply bring your compatible PC into... Read more...
As good of a job Dell did in constructing in its Venue line of Android tablets over the past several years, it's kicking Google's open source operating system to the curb and focusing more on Windows 10 devices, specifically the fast growing 2-in-1 convertible market. That means no more Android slates, nor will Dell offer its Android-based Wyse Cloud Connect PC-on-a-stick."The slate tablet market is over-saturated and is experiencing declining demand from consumers, so we've decided to discontinue the Android-based Venue tablet line," Dell told IDG News Service in an email. "We are seeing 2-in-1s... Read more...
When it comes to giving presentations in the modern era, whiteboards are out and large touchscreen displays are in. That's the basis for Dell's new 70-inch Interactive Conference Room Monitor (C7017T), the company's first interactive touchscreen panel in the 70-inch category with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080 at 60Hz) resolution. An interactive panel this size isn't necessarily for one person. Dell says it's a great option for collaborative projects, offering 10-point hand touch and packaged with two styluses. It also features an anti-glare and anti-smudge coating on the cover glass for easy viewing,... Read more...
There's a first time for everything, as the saying goes, and the Alienware 13 OLED is a first for us without question. Though there were a couple of OLED (Organic LED) display driven laptops at CES 2016 this year, Dell's Alienware division is the first in the door here at HotHardware with a retail ready product. OLED displays offer better brightness, contrast, saturation and pixel response times versus legacy display types like IPS, and in in general they're more power efficient as well. OLED displays are somewhat common these days in smartphones and as it turns out, OLED-enabled handsets... Read more...
Update: 6/25/16 - Check out our full review and deep dive of the Alienware 13 OLED right here. Dell's Alienware 13 gaming notebook has been a favorite among gamers on the go and power users that want a little more horsepower in a light, 13-inch machine. However, over the past couple of years, the Alienware team hasn't changed-up the design much, until today that is. The company is officially making the OLED display powered Alienware 13, that we saw back in January at CES, available today in conjunction with the E3 show out in LA. Our initial impressions in the short time we've had the system... Read more...
Alienware is celebrating twenty years of extreme gaming excellence and to commemorate that milestone, Dell is launching four new gaming systems. The systems include the kickass Alienware 13 OLED notebook along with the Aurora, Alpha and Area-51 desktops.

CES is a distant memory now, but we’re still seeing new products arrive that were announced in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year. One of those is the Dell Latitude 13 7000 series, the latest in the company's line of business laptops. The 13-inch ultrabook landed several awards at CES for its sleek design and promised to add some spice to the staid business laptop market. At long last, the Latitude 13 7370 is here.Dell clearly pulled some key features from its popular XPS consumer series when designing its latest Latitude. Carbon fiber makes an appearance on certain models and all Latitude... Read more...
Dell unveiled a new line of Inspiron 2-in-1s with Windows 10 at Computex 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan. These new PCs include the Inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1, the world’s first 17-inch 2-in-1 laptop. Each of the devices come preloaded with Windows 10, which means you have access to such features as Cortana, convenient and secure login with Windows Hello through the optional infrared built-in camera, and webpage markup in Microsoft Edge with the touchscreen.

Excuse us while we wipe the drool off our keyboards. Dell just unleashed a beast of a monitor that’s geared towards financial traders and software developers. The Dell 43 Multi-Client Monitor (which we will reference to as P4317Q from here on out) measures 43 inches diagonally — as its name suggests — and can deliver crisp and clear Ultra HD 4K content (3840x2160 @ 60Hz). The P4317Q features a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and a brightness rating of 350 cd/m2. Viewing angles are listed at 178 degrees and response times are rated at 8ms. The 43-inch monster doesn’t disappoint on the connectivity front,... Read more...
Update 4/26/2016: We've refreshed our battery life test suite for this review and have new, more real-world metrics to share on page 8. When Dell launched its updated XPS 13 notebook with an Infinity Edge display that squeezes a 13 inch IPS panel into essentially a 12-inch frame, it was met with universal praise for its unique mechanical design advantages and premium build quality. In fact, it was so well-received that many of you, upon seeing our review, almost immediately started asking if Dell would follow-up with the same sort of revamp for their 15-inch XPS 15 line as well. Dell apparently... Read more...
Whoever the Einstein was that declared this a "post PC era" needs talk to the gamers and enthusiasts that flocked to Boston Convention And Exhibition Center this weekend for the sold-out PAX East show. And in good ol' Bean Town, the Murphys might dropkick that genius for being overly impaired and "ship him off" promptly. In a record attendance of around 90,000 or so, there was plenty of console gaming going on, as well as mobile gaming on tablets and smartphones, and even board games but nothing compared to the crowds flocking around booths from major PC manufacturers and ecosystem partners like...

Happy Pi Day, nerds and geeks! Don't worry, we mean that affectionately, otherwise we'd be throwing stones in glass houses. In case you weren't aware, today is March 14, or 3.14, the shortened version of Pi, which is the mathematical constant representing the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter regardless of the size of the circle. Pi is also an irrational number, meaning it goes on forever in decimal form and never repeats itself. It's truly a wondrous, mind-blowing thing, and in celebration of Pi Day, Dell is offering 31.4 percent off select notebooks in the Microsoft Store.Don't... Read more...
Wondering where the love for Linux is from big box OEMs? Look no further than Dell and its XPS 13 Developer Edition laptops. Also known as "Project Sputnik," Dell came up with the idea of offering developers a powerful and thin XPS notebook running Linux and launched its first models over three years ago. Now in its 5th generation, Project Sputnik is still going strong today with the latest models combining Ubuntu 14.04 with Intel's Skylake processors. To kick off its newest generation of Developer Edition laptops, Dell is offering three Core i7 configurations, including two that feature 16GB of... Read more...
