Lately, Dell has been able to deliver notebooks that bring a smile to our faces, especially when a new XPS laptop slides across our desk. It hasn't always been that way, but since revamping the XPS line, starting with the XPS 13 back in 2015, Dell’s premium laptops have been leaders in the ultrabook market, especially in the 15 and 13-inch formats. The XPS 13 and its new 2-in-1 variant make great and highly portable workstations to tote around, but their smaller frames and relative horsepower may not be for everybody. That’s where the crossover to a 15-inch machine might make for a worthy... Read more...
Dell's XPS 13 and 15 line of notebooks have done well for the company, sparked by a reinvention of the product line back in 2015. Since then, its design signature has reached iconic status for Round Rock, with the ultra-thin bezel of its Infinity Edge display and hatched carbon fiber composite palm rest and keyboard area earning the series many awards, including our Editor's Choice on multiple occasions. And as you might expect, Dell has continued to evolve its well-received XPS product offerings, not only as new notebook platform architectures roll out, but the company is also now looking...

Some people have relatively low risk jobs, where the biggest hazard is getting pricked by a staple or poked by a thumbtack. Take Bob from accounting, for example. He sits in his office and crunches numbers that get plugged into spreadsheets all day and for Bob, his thin and light Dell laptop serves him just fine. Then there's Barbara. She's a scientist studying volcanic activity and her job often requires treading rocky terrain in intense heat while recording critical data in the field. Come rain or shine, she's out there with her laptop. Likewise, her husband Joe is a demolitions expert and spends... Read more...
Intel has been gradually rolling out its 7th generation Kaby Lake-based Core series processors for an array of computing platforms, from desktops to notebooks and 2-in-1 hybrid devices. We've shown you what Kaby Lake can do for enthusiast and gamer desktop platforms. We've even recently explored optimizing its price/performance ratio through overclocking, and of course, Kaby Lake notebooks led Intel's charge starting in the summer of last year.What we haven't gotten a chance to look at yet is Intel's lowest powered Kaby Lake variant, known as Kaby Lake-Y. Kaby Lake-Y is the the 4.5 -... Read more...
Microsoft has a sleeper hit on its hands with its Surface Hub family. While many didn’t know what to make of Microsoft’s 55- and 84-inch Windows 10-powered multi-touch displays when they were first announced, both have gone on to become a billion-dollar business for the company. Dell has obviously seen Microsoft’s success and it wants in on a piece of the action. Following the introduction of the 70-inch Interactive Conference Room Monitor during the summer of 2016, Dell today announced its new 55-inch and 86-inch Interactive Touch Monitors. Whereas the 70-inch model was “saddled” with a 1080p... Read more...

So, you think that you are hot stuff with your 4K monitor? That’s mere child’s play. Oh, you have a 5K monitor? Get of here with that weaksauce! Dell just introduced the UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD Monitor (UP3218K) which comes with a staggering 8K screen resolution. 4K displays have a resolution of 3840x2160, so it should come as no surprise that the UP3218K has an 8K resolution of 7680x4320. That works out 280 pixels per inch (PPI) for this 32-inch display. According to Dell, this is the equivalent of a 14MP display. While the technical specs are no doubt impressive, Dell also is touting impressive... Read more...
Gamers might be drawn to Dell’s refreshed XPS family or the Pascal-sportin’ Inspiron 7000 series, but business users might be more interested in what Dell is cooking up in its Latitude family.

Over the past couple of years, Dell has been driving a widespread redesign effort of its consumer and commercial product lines and has been systematically been updating both design signatures and the technology platforms within them. Dell's premium consumer XPS product line, perhaps more so than any, has seen the most significant design reinvention, with features that could be classified as "iconic," as with the company's XPS 13 and XPS 15 laptops that employ Dell's Infinity Edge display technology and premium carbon fiber composite materials.  Today, Dell is taking the redesign of their XPS...

One thing Microsoft is putting a lot of focus on with its next major update for Windows 10 is content creation, hence why it is called the Creators Update. It will introduce several new features designed to bring ideas to life in 3D, but what good is the software without the hardware? To help take advantage of those features, Dell is introducing a new touch input device called Canvas that could help artists and other creative individuals interact with Windows 10 in a more natural way. If oversimplifying things, Canvas is a 27-inch touch-sensitive secondary display with a 2560x1440 (QHD) resolution.... Read more...

Today, we had the pleasure of taking a closer look at this Infinity Edge’d stunner. Dell’s XPS 13 notebook has long been a favorite of ours, earning Editor’s Choice after Editor’s Choice. We thought there wasn’t much more Dell could pack inside its 2.7 pound frame. We were wrong.
