If you're maniacal about multitasking, an ultra-wide monitor should be in your future. As luck would have it, Dell has begun shipping its newest entry in the ultra-wide category. Now available is Dell's UltraSharp 38 (U3818DW), a massive 37.5-inch monitor with a curved (2300R curve radius) display. It also features Dell's InfinityEdge technology, which is a fancy marketing term Dell introduced last year to denote thin bezels. "You’ll be oblivious to distractions. Your 37.5-inch, ultra wide curved monitor has a 21:9 aspect ratio and delivers approximately 25 percent more screen content than a 34-inch... Read more...
Dell made an impression at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year with its Latitude 7285, a system it billed as the world's first wireless charging 2-in-1 business convertible. It is arguably the most interesting Latitude laptop to date, and now a little more than six months later, you can order one direct from Dell starting a $1,199, or just under $2,000 if opting for the highest end configuration. We will get to the hardware specs in a moment, but first let us talk about the wireless charging technology that is at play here. The Latitude 7285 uses wireless charging technology... Read more...
Dell updated its Alienware 17 gaming laptop at PAX West 2016 with NVIDIA Pascal graphics, but at the time Intel’s quad-core Kaby Lake mobile processors weren’t available yet. It was a short-lived update, however, as the Kaby Lake-powered Alienware 17 was announced a short time later at the start of the Consumer Electronics Show this past January. Today, we’re checking out the newest Alienware 17 R4 gaming laptop featuring the latest of both technologies. The chassis may look familiar, but its all-new on the inside with two 7th-Generation Intel Core i7 processor and four NVIDIA Pascal graphics options.... Read more...
AMD is looking to take the enthusiast gaming PC market by storm with its upcoming Ryzen Threadripper family, and Dell is apparently more than happy to embrace the new many-core processors. Today at E3, Dell announced the new Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition, which as its name implies, is backed by AMD’s top-of-the line consumer CPUs. The Area-51 Threadripper Edition of course features an AMD X399 chipset-based motherboard and is available with either 12- or 16-core Ryzen Threadripper processors, delivering a total of 24 or 32 threads respectively. In addition, Dell says that both processors... Read more...
Anyone who thinks that PC gaming is on the decline is not paying attention. Just the opposite, PC gaming has seen renewed enthusiasm by the industry at large over the past year or so, and things have kicked up a notch with AMD returning to its former glory with Ryzen. In response to AMD's comeback effort, Dell announced a new Inspiron Gaming Desktop and Inspiron 27 7000 all-in-one PC for gamers, both with Ryzen inside.Dell is no stranger to building desktop systems for gamers, though its new Inspiron Gaming Desktop is Dell's first-ever gaming desktop under its Inspiron brand. With a starting price... Read more...
For most folks, VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) may sound like all fun and games. However, at Dell EMC World in Las Vegas this week, Nike demonstrated with the help of Dell Technologies, why AR, VR and supportive input technologies like Haptics, will be the future of industrial design. Shoe design may not sound like rocket science but let’s just say the "cobbler has evolved," so to speak and actually it's rather cutting-edge these days.Dell EMC Executive VP and CMO Jeremy Burton took to the stage in a keynote session on the second day of the show, sporting a fresh pair of Nike...

We first learned about Toshiba’s “world’s first” 64-layer, 512Gb BiCS flash NAND back in early February. Later that month, Toshiba began shipping samples of the NAND, promising that it would help enable high-performing and more cost-effective 1TB solutions in a single package. This week, Toshiba is showcasing its 64-layer BiCS flash live at the Dell EMC World conference being held in Las Vegas. On hand was a prototype XG-series NVMe PCIe SSD equipped with 1TB of BiCS 3D TLC NAND. Naturally, the prototype SSD was housed within a Dell XPS laptop, which is appropriate given the setting. Unfortunately,... Read more...
Dell is continuing to up its game in the display market, as we witnessed last month with the official launch of the 32-inch 8K UP3218K. That monitor began shipping earlier this week with an eye-popping price tag of $4,999. Today, Dell is showing off a new display with a much more palatable price tag (though still out of reach for most mainstream consumers). The new UltraSharp 27 (UP2718Q) springs to the forefront with a 4K screen resolution (3840x2160), brightness rating of 1,000 cd/m2, and a contrast ratio of 20,000:1. The UP2718Q is targeted at creative professionals, and as such supports 100... Read more...
Get out those wallets. Dell’s visually enticing 30-inch UltraSharp 4K OLED Monitor UP3017Q is now on sale. According to Dell, the monitor provides “incredibly realistic imagery that’s unlike any other panel”. Dell’s first 4K UltraSharp offers a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The 30 panel comprises some 8 million pixels, a color depth of 1.07 billion colors, and quick image transition response time of 0.1 milliseconds (black to white). Dell notes that, “Every color onscreen is intensely rich and vibrant against true black, and enhanced by individually lit pixels on an expansive 30-inch... Read more...
The Dell Inspiron 7000 Gaming straddles the line between mainstream and gaming notebooks. It is offered in a few sizes, including a svelte 14" model, but after getting some hands-on time with the Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming at CES earlier this year, we decided to check the larger laptop out. It sports a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU, along with some fairly high-end internals. Before we dig into the Inspiron 15 7000’s specs, we should point out that this particular system sits at the top of the Inspiron line. The entry-level 3000 series is easy on the... Read more...
The world’s first 8K monitor is now available for pre-order, and you’ll probably either do a double take and balk at the price of admission, think of all the stuff that you could sell to help finance the purchase, or gladly whip out your credit card to have it shipped to your home. After all, what else do you expect for a monitor that costs $4,999 before tax. We were first introduced to the Dell UltraSharp 32 8K Monitor (UP3218K) back at CES this past January, and were instantly blown away by its size and display crazy resolution. While most of us are still coming to grips with 4K (3840x2160) monitors,... Read more...
Lately, Dell has been able to deliver notebooks that bring a smile to our faces, especially when a new XPS laptop slides across our desk. It hasn't always been that way, but since revamping the XPS line, starting with the XPS 13 back in 2015, Dell’s premium laptops have been leaders in the ultrabook market, especially in the 15 and 13-inch formats. The XPS 13 and its new 2-in-1 variant make great and highly portable workstations to tote around, but their smaller frames and relative horsepower may not be for everybody. That’s where the crossover to a 15-inch machine might make for a worthy... Read more...
Dell's XPS 13 and 15 line of notebooks have done well for the company, sparked by a reinvention of the product line back in 2015. Since then, its design signature has reached iconic status for Round Rock, with the ultra-thin bezel of its Infinity Edge display and hatched carbon fiber composite palm rest and keyboard area earning the series many awards, including our Editor's Choice on multiple occasions. And as you might expect, Dell has continued to evolve its well-received XPS product offerings, not only as new notebook platform architectures roll out, but the company is also now looking...

Some people have relatively low risk jobs, where the biggest hazard is getting pricked by a staple or poked by a thumbtack. Take Bob from accounting, for example. He sits in his office and crunches numbers that get plugged into spreadsheets all day and for Bob, his thin and light Dell laptop serves him just fine. Then there's Barbara. She's a scientist studying volcanic activity and her job often requires treading rocky terrain in intense heat while recording critical data in the field. Come rain or shine, she's out there with her laptop. Likewise, her husband Joe is a demolitions expert and spends... Read more...
