The Dell Inspiron Duo is an impressive sight. It's not often that we're this enamored by a device's physical design, but the Dell Inspiron Duo simply does it for us. The machine is a feat of engineering, and it really redefines the convertible laptop segment. This 10.1" machine is part netbook, part tablet, but unlike many rivals, it doesn't compromise much in terms or portability and form factor to be both. When you open up the package, it looks like a Mini 10 or any other 10" netbook. But once the lid is open, a simple press on the LCD allows it to swivel around and lock into... Read more...
There are some companies that stick to what's commonly accepted. No real risk-taking. And then there are some companies who think outside of the box on concept products, but they never actually take the leap of faith to produce them. But Dell has shown to be a risk-taker, first with the wildly thin Adamo XPS laptop, then with the 5" Dell Streak, and now with the Inspiron duo. The duo is called a convertible tablet, but it's actually unlike any convertible tablet to come before it. It's kind of difficult to believe that Dell managed to not only pull this off, but to do so in a way that's acceptable... Read more...
If you've been in the market for a new 15" laptop, Dell has a new one with loads of style. The Inspiron 15R Alloy Edition is mostly the same 15R as before, but with one primary difference: the exterior. The 15.6" notebook has a widescreen panel that's backed by a new aluminum finish and Alloy Waves design. Dell has been known to offer all sorts of exterior designs on their machines before, so we're glad to see that design studio isn't slowing down. Inside, there's even a laser-etched palm rest to match, with a brushed metal feel to go along with it. Outside of the design angle, there's plenty to... Read more...
It's the size of a netbook, but it packs a mightier punch than we're used to seeing. It's Dell's newest ultraportable, the Inspiron M101z. Dell calls this new machine an "ultrathin laptop with long battery life," and if you've been looking for netbook portability with more power than usual, this looks to fit the bill. It weighs less than 4lbs. and is far more stylish than most low-end netbooks, and it's definitely more powerful. Dell is aiming this new machine at a variety of segments: students, moms, travelers, you name it. Nearly anyone could benefit from having a powerful AMD Athlon II Neo CPU,... Read more...
Dell's Studio line has always been about both form and function, and now an even greater emphasis is being placed on the aesthetic design. In a joint collaboration with Threadless, Dell is sprucing up its Studio laptop line with "11 inspired designs," each one created and submitted by members of the Threadless community. "The Threadless community creates unique, critically-acclaimed original designs. By teaming with Threadless and offering exclusive designs through Design Studio, we enable students and families an exciting way to differentiate their Dell Mini or Studio laptop PCs," said Rachna...

How's this for news on a lazy Sunday? Dell has just introduced an entirely new Inspiron notebook family, not to mention shed light on a whole new batch of Intel processors (details to come on those). The new line is called the Inspiron R family, designed to keep you and yours organized, entertained and ready for anything. These should be great for handling basic computing tasks as well as multi-media and light duty gaming, and the built-in surround sound and webcam should make 'em great for video chatting. The Inspiron R line can be a real bargain, but those who want to spend serious cash can get... Read more...
Without a whole lot of fanfare, Dell has gone and updated its Inspiron notebook line with several new 'R' branded models, including the Inspiron 13R, 14R, 15R, 17R, and M501R. These are slightly upgraded models over their R-less counterparts, all of which sport a wider variety of hardware and OS options to choose from. In addition to tapping into Intel's Core i3 and Core i5 technology, the R-series also boast a few aesthetic and design enhancements. There's a new hinged forward design, as well as a brushed metal finish with chrome accents and four different color options to choose from. "The Inspiron... Read more...
This year's CTIA show in Las Vegas is all about what's next: 4G. What's interesting is that most carriers don't even have 3G figured out; AT&T's 3G network still isn't robust enough to handle bursts of traffic in major cities, and yet the mobile world seems set on moving on to WiMAX, LTE, neither, or both. Clearwire is the major provider of WiMAX in the U.S. today, and there's no surprise to see the company making a number of major announcements at America's largest wireless show. Throughout 2010, Clearwire plans on expanding their footprint in a big way. New markets that will see 4G service... Read more...
With more battery life and "stutter-free" HD video playback, Dell seems to be making a bid to make its Inspiron Mini 10 the go-top device for Internet TV watchers.The redesigned and amped-up netbook, with Intel's next-gen Atom technology will become available in January. With a 10.1-inch display, the Mini 10 can be personalized through Dell's Design Studio or just through the broad range of colors available, Dell said. The palm rest is textured and "smudge-resistant," and the keys are sculpted to make typing more comfortable. The battery will last up to 9.5 hours of continuous operation, too.The... Read more...
Dell's pulling out all of the stops as it rolls into the holiday season of 2009, first with the Adamo XPS and now with the most powerful mini PC we've ever seen. The Inspiron Zino HD is small in stature but remarkably powerful, with options for up to 8GB of RAM, 1TB of hard drive space, a Blu-ray drive, TV tuner and HDMI out. The measurements are right at 7.75" x 7.75" x 3.5", and while it starts at just $229, things can get pricey if you start piling on the extras. It's available to order today, with the full details below. Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE /* Style Definitions */... Read more...
Anyone that considers themselves a sports fan will recognize that the MLB playoffs are in full swing, and we're guessing that the timing here is more than coincidental. Shortly after Dell rolled out a fleet of notebooks with 26 different design options, the company has now issued a slate of laptops with 30 Major League Baseball team logo options. Yup--you can snag an MLB notebook just in time to watch your favorite team get eliminated from World Series contention. Or win it, if you're lucky.Either way, the MLB logo notebooks include every single team in the major, and of course they're being offered... Read more...
Make no mistake, Dell's new Inspiron 'Z' family isn't the same as the Studio 'Z' family launched back in May. The model names may be similar, but quite a bit is different on the machines themselves. Launched today alongside the company's new Studio XPS 8000 and 9000 desktops, these notebooks are powered by Intel's Ultra-Low Voltage (ULV) processors and include internal optical drives.The Inspiron 14z and 15z both feature thinner, lighter bodies, not to mention what Dell calls "power-sipping" batteries. In fact, these are the thinnest Inspiron notebooks Dell has ever issued, with both models checking... Read more...
Anyone paying even the slightest attention to the evolution of Dell designs would know that the company has come a long way since the beige box days in the late 90s, but even for the newer, fresher, hipper Dell, this one's pretty radical. Just as the company decided to dump its Inspiron Mini 12 in favor of keeping just the Mini 10 around, it has decided to tag-team with what's likely the most popular network for kids on television today: Nickelodeon. In a cute, almost slimy joint announcement today, the two are trying to prove that "fun and education can mix" with the Dell Inspiron Mini Nickelodeon... Read more...
Talk about a short life. Dell's Inspiron Mini 12 launched in late October of last year, and it seems the company's largest netbook is already being canned before it can even celebrate its first birthday. It's almost tragic, isn't it? With fewer and fewer netbooks launching these days with 11.6" and 12" displays, it really hurts to see yet another big guy take the fall. After all, these 12" machines usually have keyboards that are much larger and far more comfortable to use than those on the 10" machines, but we suspect the sales volume just didn't warrant an extension. Indeed, the Mini 12 launched... Read more...
