There's a transformation taking place in the PC market, and despite what the doomsayers might tell you, it has nothing to do with tablets, smartphones, tweener devices like the Galaxy Note, or increasingly media-centric game consoles. No, the transformation we're observing is one where people are trading in their towers and monitors for space-saving all-in-one (AIO) desktops. The AIO form factor isn't new by any means, but for a number of reasons, it's finally starting to gain momentum. And as they become more popular, companies like Dell have begun paying more attention to ways they can improve... Read more...

Hot on the heels of an update to its Alienware gaming laptop line that brought Intel’s 3rd-generation Core processors to the series, Engadget noticed that Dell has added Ivy Bridge chips to its Vostro 470 mini tower and XPS 8500 desktops. The Vostro is designed for businesses and has modest specs that are ideal for office-type applications. At the entry level, the Vostro 470 includes a 3rd-generation Intel Core i5-3450 (3.10GHz, 3,5GHz Turbo) processor, integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics, 4GB of DDR3-1600MHz RAM, 500GB (7200RPM) HDD, 16X CD/DVD burner, and a Dell keyboard and mouse, in addition...

Earlier this year, we took a long, hard look at one of Dell's most highly-anticipated multimedia notebooks to date. That was the XPS 15z, and we thought pretty highly of it in almost every measurable way, including its delightfully thin dimensions. Fast forward a few months, and in slides the XPS 14z. According to its branding, this unit is just a single number different than the XPS 15z, and if you didn't know any better, you'd just assume that someone took a shrink-ray to the 15z. Indeed, the 14z really is just a small 15z in some ways, but by the same token, that's something that hasn't really... Read more...
Looking for a new notebook? Look no further. Dell's long-awaited XPS 14z is out on the loose today in America, with the slick and slim gaming notebook on sale for $1,000. It's a 14" Windows 7-based rig, with Core i5 and Core i7 options, DDR3 SDRAM, up to 750GB of storage, Intel's HD Graphics 3000 (or an NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M GPU) and plenty more in the CTO list. If you're game, Dell's game to ship, and you can customize your own in the Via link below.... Read more...
Dell revealed the new XPS 14z laptop. This laptop is the thinnest full-featured 14-inch laptop that has an internal optical drive. At less than an inch thick and a starting weight of 4.36 pounds, the XPS 14z is designed to provide power and portability. Options for this laptop include discrete graphics, second-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, up to 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz memory, and up to 750GB hard drive or a 256GB SSD drive. The 14-inch HD display fits into a 13-inch laptop form factor to give you 10 percent more viewing area than a 13.3-inch display. The XPS 14z will be available Nov.... Read more...
We pinged three system builders -- Dell, Hewlett Packard, and iBuyPower -- and asked each one to send us a back-to-school PC equally suited for work and play (read: Mainstream). What we're looking for is a flexible configuration that's able to put its nose to the grindstone during the week to tackle multimedia projects, whether they be for school or for work, yet capable of running wild on the weekends with sufficient pixel pushing power to satisfy our jones for blowing something (or someone) up, in the virtual world, of course. Our request leaves a lot up for interpretation, and wouldn't you know... Read more...
Alice Cooper sang it wrong, school isn't out forever; with Labor Day in the rear view mirror, school is back in session. That means having to stock up on supplies and investing in essential items to get through the school year; like beer, condoms, and a new PC. You're on your own with the first two, but you've come to the right place for guidance on a new system. We pinged three system builders -- Dell, Hewlett Packard, and iBuyPower -- and asked each one to send us a back-to-school PC equally suited for work and play (read: Mainstream). What we're looking for is a flexible configuration... Read more...
For some, Dell may historically have an undeserved reputation for producing run-of-the-mill products, but when you look at their recent smartphone offering like the Venue Pro, slates like the 5-inch Streak and computers like the Adamo XPS, it's hard to not give 'em credit where credit is due. Enter the XPS 15z. For all intents and purposes, this is yet another standout product from Dell, one that simply cannot be lumped into standard mainstream categories. There's something fundamentally different about the 15z that commands a second look, and in our case, an in-depth review of its features and... Read more...
Every so often, a company does something unexpected; something that sets the bar for its competition and really grabs the attention of potential consumers for one reason or another. Dell is a company that is capable of this and has done so in the past in both their desktop and notebook lines. While Dell has been known for pushing out a huge number of "beige boxes" years back, they're also the company that helped reinvigorate the ultraportable market thanks to the original Adamo, and with the help of Alienware, they're putting together some similarly interesting...

The Dell XPS 15z. You better get ready, because your next gaming laptop is coming, and coming soon. Dell's CEO has just tweeted that the company will have the XPS 15z coming soon, and while it's anyone's guess as to when "soon" is, it has to be sooner rather than later. Is that enough "soon" for you? The company has release a new teaser video showcasing some of the exterior, and whenever Dell puts XPS on a notebook, you know they mean business. Any speculation as to what internals will be found here? Chances are it'll be one mean, lean gaming machine, whatever happens next.... Read more...
Just to make sure you don't stay too sad over the loss of Dell's XPS 14, the company is introducing revised versions of the XPS 15 and XPS 17. Naturally, it's Sandy Bridge making the move to two of Dell's more popular notebooks, and since 3D is the bandwagon of the moment, the 17" can now be ordered with 3D support as well. Dell is quick to point out that neither of these new machines are affected by the Sandy Bridge snafu that hit a few weeks back, and those looking for a new XPS 15 or 17 today will have the option to pick one of the next-gen Core i3, i5 or i7 dual-core/quad-core CPUs, new GPU...

Wow, talk about dying out quick. Dell's XPS 14 has only been on sale for less than half a year, but already the company is confirming that it has been discontinued. This news comes just days after HP decided to cancel the Envy 13 while letting their 14" ultraportable pick up the slack. Clearly, Dell's not having the same story running with its ultraportable lineup. The XPS 14 was a fairly well-regarded machine, offering a nice mix of power/performance while still being more mobile than most of today's larger, bulkier 15.6"+ notebooks. According to a statement released by the company, sales weren't... Read more...
