To look at the Dell Precision 15 5510, you wouldn’t know that it sits in the middle of Dell’s workstation lineup. The laptop is thinner and sleeker than you might expect a workstation-class laptop to be and the premium carbon fiber palm rest gives the system a decidedly high-end vibe. But the Precision 15 5510 is actually Dell’s mid-range mobile workstation, and its price tag comes in as low as $1,399. It's essentially the workstation cousin to Dell's new and rather fantastic XPS 15 that we evaluated here not long ago. Putting the power of a true workstation into a laptop is a tall order to...

Back in early October, Microsoft announced its next generation Band fitness tracker, which is sleeker and more capable than its predecessor. But the handsome new looks and curved AMOLED display came at a high price: the second generation model debuted at $249 at the same time its predecessor was hovering around the $100 mark. While we’re certain that early adopters willing to pay full MSRP are still happy with their Bands, those that decided to wait it out for a significant price cut are in for a real treat. Dell has slashed the price of the Band to $199, which is impressive enough in its own right.... Read more...
Dell has some enticing new hardware on tap for its newest Inspiron 7000 series laptops, including the latest and most powerful Intel Skylake processors and NVIDIA GPUs, but the computer maker sent us a decidedly modest version for this evaluation. PC makers usually load their review systems to the hilt, in an effort to make them perform well in commonly used benchmarks, but Dell is confident that its Inspiron 15 7000 delivers solid, real-world performance for the money, even at base specifications, so we gave it a look. Before we dig into the system we tested, let’s take discuss where it falls... Read more...

We covered a lot of miles at CES 2016 this year, our fitness trackers often chirping "success" rather early in the day, but we saw a lot of people and a lot of tech gear in our travels. Some of it was hot - damn hot - some of it, not so much. There were some recurring themes this year, as with every year at CES it seems. The hot topics and trends this year were autonomous cars, virtual reality, more thin and light computing and of course more powerful gaming gear. Every Tech Web publication has its own short list of the best products showcased at CES 2016. We're going to run down our top 10 products... Read more...
You could almost hear the collective groan from the enthusiast community when Dell announced it had purchased Alienware, in what now feels like 100 years ago. It has actually been just shy of a decade since Dell took ownership, and rather than let the Alienware brand wither into irrelevance like some other boutique vendors that were later absorbed by major OEMs (Voodoo who?), Dell's gaming gear division has continued to thrive and innovate with the help of the company's deeper resources. If we're being totally honest (as we always are), passionate consumers come out of the woodwork whenever the... Read more...
Check out our full review of the new Alienware 13 R3 with OLED and GeForce GTX 1060! The hustle and bustle of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has us spying all kinds of fantastic technologies and products on the verge of release, though one in particular tickled our fancy. It's the Alienware 13, a version of the gaming laptop we're in the process of editing for review, only the one being shown off at CES has an OLED display. That display has all the pop and deep saturation you'd expect along with a 1ms response time that gamers will rave on. That's no small thing, as no other gaming laptop... Read more...
Yesterday, we brought you the rather unfortunate news that a few models of new Dell laptops were shipping with eDellRoot, a self-signed root certificate that had its private key stored directly on the affected systems. Needless to say, this represents a rather serious security risk for customers, and is reminiscent of the Superfish debacle that plagued Lenovo earlier this year. For its part, Dell stated yesterday “that security and privacy is a top concern” for the company and that it had a “team investigating the current situation.” Thankfully for customers, Dell responded quickly and has given...

If you’re PC giant Lenovo, you’d probably like to forget all about the Superfish security debacle from earlier this year. Lenovo installed Superfish adware on its IdeaPad notebooks earlier this year complete with a self-signed HTTPS certificate. The certificate left Lenovo customers with affected machines open to man-in-the-middle attacks and put the company in front of the steady crosshairs of many security professionals and PC enthusiasts. Now it looks as though Dell has a similar problem on its hands. Over the weekend, programmer Joe Nord discovered that his newly purchased Dell Inspiron 5000... Read more...
Update: 10/23/15 11:20AM - A definite perk of writing about technology is getting to attend events and spending hands on time with bleeding-edge products. We've been fortunate to do that on several occasions, including today at Dell World 2015 where the company is making several major announcements as well as showing off some rather impressive looking forthcoming products. One of those products is the XPS 15, Dell's hot new Ultrabook with a gorgeous 15.6-inch 4K resolution Infinity Edge display. It sports the same near-borderless design as the XPS 13 that impressed us earlier this year, but in... Read more...
We haven’t even closed out October yet, and we’re already getting a sneak peek at what’s in store for Black Friday 2015. One of the first hot deals to kick off the holiday shopping season comes from none other than Dell, and it’s a doozy. Dell will offer the Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle (500GB) for a low, low price of $299.99. That price on its own is commendable, as it currently retails for $349.99. However, you can find sales nearly every week to get the Xbox One at the price, so that’s not exactly newsworthy. However, Dell is juicing the deal up by also including a free copy... Read more...
Tech titans Intel and Microsoft are joining forces with the top three PC makers in the world -- that would be Lenovo, HP, and Dell, in that order (by market share) -- to blitz consumers with a new ad campaign that they collectively hope will enlighten the masses on what a Windows 10-based, Intel-powered system can do. The slogan they've chosen to run with is "PC Does What?!," which will kick off in full effect this coming Monday, October 19. In the meantime, this dream team ensemble has released a spattering of short advertisements, all available to watch to on YouTube courtesy of Intel. There's... Read more...
We first got an inkling that Dell Inc. was interested in purchasing EMC Corp late last week, and today we received official confirmation of that deal. And as we expected back then, this a whopper of a deal — in fact, it’s being billed as the largest tech acquisition in history. The world’s No. 3 PC maker — with the help of MSD Partners and Silver Lake — is offering up $33.15 per share in cash and special stock for EMC, valuing the deal at $67 billion. The $33.15/share price is roughly 28 percent higher than EMC’s share price at close of day Wednesday October 7th; the day before the first reports... Read more...
As companies become well-established in the market, and sometimes seem to become integral to it, an obvious move is to begin acquiring other companies to help bolster their offerings further. We see this often: Microsoft, Apple, Google, and many others regularly search the market for smaller companies that would be worth bringing in under their wing. It also happens on a larger scale, but those sorts of acquisitions are far from common. Well, if a new rumor that's floating around becomes true, the market will be hit by a rather amazing acquisition. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Dell... Read more...
