Mechanically speaking, Dell has done little to change or update the company's wildly popular XPS 13 and 15 series of premium consumer notebooks since their initial release. There's no mystery as to why that is the case, however. When something works this well, you stick with it. The Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15 have been two of the best selling notebooks in the company's history. That's a bold statement and it stands to reason. The Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15 line of machines, with their unique Infinity Edge displays and gorgeous carbon fiber and aluminum adorned chassis, are some of the best looking, best... Read more...
Tesla isn’t the only automaker that’s staking a claim in the EV market. The American car company is getting some fresh competition from an unlikely source: Jaguar Land Rover (JLV). The British luxury and sports car maker tonight unveiled the segment-busting I-Pace Concept electric vehicle (EV), which looks like Jaguar’s take on SUV “coupes” like the BMW X4 and X6. The I-Pace -- the company's very first EV -- definitely shares its design language with current Jaguar vehicles, including the XE, F-Type and F-Pace. It’s not an overly aggressive design by any means, but it still manages to avoid the... Read more...
Dell's Alienware gaming PC division recently announced a refresh of their 13, 15 and 17 notebook product lines, starting with the introduction of their 15 and 17 inch models and more recently unchaining their smaller but just as scrappy 13-inch beast. While the new machines don't usher in Intel's latest Kaby Lake 7th Gen Core series processors (of which only dual-core variants are currently available), they are now packing NVIDIA Pascal firepower, with a GeForce GTX 1080, GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1060 powering the Alienware 17, 15 and 13 models respectively. It was a clean sweep for NVIDIA... Read more...
One of the most talked about tech products of past few months (with perhaps the exception of the iPhone 7) has to be Microsoft's Surface Studio. Microsoft wowed tech enthusiasts with its 28-inch content creation machine that comes standard with an innovative Surface Dial accessory that allows you to invoke menus and controls in your favorite applications. Today at the Adobe MAX conference, Dell teased its own content creation system, and it looks rather fascinating with its dual displays. There’s a primary display that you might find in any typical all-in-one machine, but there’s also a secondary... Read more...
Update: 11/11/2016 -Our full deep-dive review of the Alienware 13 R3 is now live. Please head here for all the details, benchmarks and analysis.Dell's Alienware division stepped up today with a new, compact and powerful weapon in its laptop arsenal with the announcement of the redesigned Alienware 13 notebook. Now, before you get all misty about the headline, we understand Apple's latest MacBook isn't optimized for gaming, but the comparison of what can be done in a 13-inch notebook frame can still be made. We're just having a little fun with it. Unlike Apple's MacBook Pro and the revamped... Read more...
A name synonymous with PC gaming rigs is once again back in the fray with a new high-powered notebook. Today, Dell announced the all-new Alienware 13, which is being billed as the world’s first 13-inch class notebook with VR capabilities. The Alienware 13 may be the smallest notebook in the family (it’s even thinner than the previous generation), but it still packs quite a punch. The machine can be equipped with quad-core H-Series Intel Core processors (up to a Core i7-6700HQ) and most importantly, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU. The notebook’s 13.3-inch display can be had in three resolutions:... Read more...
One of the many perks of working at a publication like HotHardware is that we get to attend a wide array of different technology-related events. GPU Tech Days, the Consumer Electronics Show, processor deep dives, smartphone launches -- you name it, and we're there. This Notebook Still Worked After Being Thrown Off The Boat Onto The Rocks Below... At many of these events we get hands-on time with the latest and greatest gadgets and components, sometimes in exotic locations, but there's typically a predictable cadence. Arrive, get situated, learn some new things, maybe have a bit of fun, and then... Read more...
If you're tuning into the sites and sounds of Dell EMC World 2016 this week in Austin, Texas, you'll hear a lot about "modernizing the data center" with Dell EMC Infrastructure products, from servers to big iron storage. However, Dell is also showcasing new technologies near and dear to consumers, that are designed and built in Dell's Client Solutions group -- the personal computing business unit most folks are familiar with.During his morning keynote Jeff Clarke, Vice Chairman of Operations and President of Client Solutions for Dell, introduced Frank Azor, VP and General Manager of Dell's...

If you’re a regular reader of HotHardware, then you know that we think highly of Dell’s XPS 13 ultrabook. The XPS 13 manages to cram a 13.3-inch IPS display into a 11-inch notebook frame, thanks to its tantalizing Infinity Edge design (which minimizes display bezel). We liked the XPS 13 enough to give it our Editor’s Choice award. However, the folks at Dell aren’t standing still when it comes to upgrading this ultrabook and the company has now equipped it Intel 7th Gen Kaby Lake Core Series processors to improve performance and further bolster battery life. Base systems come equipped with... Read more...
We've had good experiences with Dell's large size UltraSharp monitors over the years, which combine big screens with accurate color reproduction and bright visuals. Now Dell has two more more models to consider, both of which promise the same level of quality we've grown accustomed to. One is the 34-inch curved panel (U3417W) and the other is a 30-inch flat display (UP3017)These are two monitors aimed to two different audiences. Starting with the smaller of the two, the 30-inch UP3017 with PremierColor brings color-critical performance to the table for graphics artists and other professionals who... Read more...
It’s that time again — time for Dell to update its Alienware notebook lineup with faster processors and new graphics hardware. Today, the Alienware 15 and 17 are being updated with designs that are 25 percent thinner, while incorporating even more premium materials throughout like anodized aluminum and magnesium-alloy and steel reinforcements. Both of the gaming notebooks are VR ready according to Dell, as they should be, considering that each is available with a new GeForce GTX 10-Series GPU from NVIDIA. In the case of the Alienware 15, that means up to a GeForce GTX 1070. The mammoth Alienware... Read more...
As much as we like piecing together formidable desktop systems crammed full of high end hardware, the future of PC gaming for many mainstream users may lie in more compact setups. Certainly there's been a push to get PC players out of a dank basement and into the living room with Steam Machines and similar console-sized PCs. However, Dell's Alienware division is hoping to take things to the next level with its pint sized Alpha R2 system, an ultra small form factor (SFF) gaming desktop. We have to use the world "desktop" carefully here because the Alpha R2, like its predecessor, is more of a "shelf-top"... Read more...
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...
