Utlrabook designs just keep getting thinner, more powerful and more capable with each iteration of the various platforms on the market. Dell's XPS line of ultrabooks has always done relatively well in the arena, with some notable break-out features, like composite carbon fiber construction, that helped them stand out in a sea of offerings from the competition. In fact, when we took a look at Dell's 2014 version of the XPS 13 back in March of last year, it scored high marks with us for impressive battery life, great build quality and good performance, though it didn't have an SD card slot on board....

Dell has updated what it claims is the world's thinnest and lightest mobile workstation, the Precision M3800. Checking in at a svelte 0.31-0.71 (H) by 14.65 (W) by 10 (D) inches and weighing only 4.15 pounds, we won't argue that claim, though what's equally impressive is the collection of hardware and features. Stealing the show is a 15.6-inch UltraSharp touch display with a 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) resolution and IGZO2 technology, along with Corning Gorilla Glass for added durability. The upgraded display gives road warriors the ability to view their work in much higher detail, along... Read more...
Valve’s Steam Machine was all the rage at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, but as we enter 2015, the SteamOS gaming platform (and Valve’s tantalizing Steam Controller) are still works in progress. SteamOS hasn’t been written off, but Dell, which was one of the first PC makers to build a custom console-sized system for SteamOS, isn’t waiting around. Its Alienware gaming brand launched the Alienware Alpha, which is meant to be your next (or your first) living room gaming PC. The Alienware Alpha plugs the holes left by Valve with Microsoft hardware and software and a simple 10-ft UI developed in house.... Read more...
Dell has been strategically setting-up their new Venue 8 7000 tablet for cameo appearances over the past few months, starting back at Intel Developer's Forum in September of last year, then again at Dell World in November, and of course at CES 2015. At each event we got some hands-on time with Dell's interesting new tablet and the Intel Moorefield Atom platform that powers it, along with Intel's RealSense camera setup, but until this week we haven't gotten much more than a few spare minutes kicking the tires. However, upon our return from CES in Las Vegas last week, Dell had a couple of packages... Read more...
In this episode of HotHardware's Two And A Half Geeks, Dave and Marco round-table rap about highlights of CES 2015, including the CyberPower Fang Trinity, NVIDIA’s Tegra X1, 5th Gen Core Intel-powered notebooks like the Dell XPS 13, AMD Freesync monitors and upcoming Carizzo APU, and what we expect for the coming year...

Dell took the wraps off a fresh, new revamp of their popular XPS 13 ultrabook line, out at CES in Las Vegas last week. The new machine was widely considered best-of-show for core computing products and racked-up awards left and right from major publications, including accolades from us here. Dell seemingly hit all the high notes with this machine, from its new 14nm Intel Core i5-5200U Broadwell-U processor power plant, to its absolutely stunning 13.3-inch 3200X1800 IPS display that's strapped with Corning Gorilla Glass NBT and nearly completely devoid of bezel on its...

Dell's SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit (CTU) has just discovered a new piece of malware that it dubs "Skeleton Key". Besides being one of the coolest-named pieces of malware ever, Skeleton Key provides access to any user account on an Active Directory controller without regard to supplying the correct password. As in-memory malware, Skeleton Key is extremely difficult to detect, and it'd be totally invisible to the affected users. And while it requires admin access to the AD controller to deploy, once it is, the exploiter could wreak whatever havoc they like while disguised as an innocent user.... Read more...
Intel's strategically timed CES 2015 launch of their new 5th Generation Core Series processors for notebooks was met with a reasonably warm reception, though it's always difficult to rise above the noise, with the sea of announcements from competitors and the like. CES is always such a zoo and that's by design. Performance claims for Intel's new chip promise major gains in graphics and more modest increases in standard compute applications. However, the biggest bet Intel placed on the new Broadwell-U architecture is performance-per-watt throughput and battery life in premium... Read more...
Earlier today, we brought you news of the exciting new XPS 13 notebook, refreshed Alienware 15 and 17 notebooks, and the availability of the Venue 8 7000 Series tablet that was originally announced in September of last year. But those products aren’t the only ones that Dell has on display here in Las Vegas, there are still a few more products lurking in the shadows… Dell’s Inspiron laptops might not have the same flair as the XPS or Alienware lineups, but they’re still workhorse machines that will get the job done with little fuss. The company today launched the Inspiron 15 7000 Series, which —... Read more...
Dell is stepping up its game for the Consumer Electronics Show, and is launching what it deems the “best portfolio of consumer devices in company history.” The company is rolling out a number of new products including the XPS 13, new Alienware 15 and 17 gaming notebooks, and the Venue 8 7000 Series tablet. We’re going to start our coverage with the XPS 13, which Dell says is the smallest 13-inch laptop in the world. Dell is able to claim this feat by using what it calls an infinity display that is virtually borderless (the bezels measure just 5.2mm), allowing the XPS 13 to maintain the... Read more...
We first caught wind on the Alienware Alpha in the lead-up to Valve’s Steam Box announcements, prior to the Consumer Electronics Show. If you’re unfamiliar with the Alienware Alpha, it is a sleek, small form factor gaming PC, designed specifically for gamers. Valve is not quite ready with Steam OS or the Steam Controller, so the whole Steam Box angle is on hold for now, but that didn’t stop Alienware from re-tooling a bit and shipping the Alpha with Windows 8.1 instead. There are a number of Alpha configurations currently available. The machines have a starting price of $549 with the entry-level... Read more...
So, have you been shopping a 4K monitor for yourself and haven't liked what you've seen so far? We don't blame you -- though there are a select few models worthy of early adoption, for the most part, the 4K monitor movement still has some growing pains to overcome. One of the more promising entries we've seen in some time is Dell's new 27-inch P2715Q. The P2715Q rocks an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel rather than an inferior TN display. It also boasts support for a 60Hz refresh rate when running at 3840x2160, which is not something that can be said about the company's 28-inch P2815Q (it's limited... Read more...
Let's face it, sometimes a father knows best, and that applies to business as well. Hence why Michael Dell, founding father of the world's third largest PC company, fought so hard to take Dell private so that he could maneuver the firm in the path of his vision without being second guessed and scrutinized by shareholders every step of the way. And now a year removed from the $24.9 billion buyout, things are looking bright. Exceedingly bright, that is. Citing a pair of people with knowledge of the matter, Bloomberg reports that Michael and private equity firm Silver Lake Management LLC have made... Read more...
Dell has made a handful of interesting announcements at its Dell World 2014 conference, currently taking place in Austin, Texas. Yesterday, we were able to show you some of the new Venue mainstream and professional tablets and convertible devices the company has coming down the pipeline, and today we’ve got some impression of a couple of other products—Dell’s highly anticipated 5K display and a concept “Smart Desk” product that could change the way creative professionals interact with their PC. First up, here’s a look at Dell’s upcoming UltraSharp 27 5K... Read more...
