Perhaps one day in the future, all of our digital connections will be wireless, eliminating the need for wires and cables entirely. In the here and now, however, there are a plethora of devices that require a physical connection. To help wrangle them all, Dell has designed a portable, puck-shaped multi-purpose adapter that looks to be especially handy for mobile road warriors. The Dell DA300 USB-C mobile adapter is a 6-in-1 gadget that provides universal connections to video, LAN, and data. It allows users to connect multiple devices at the same time, including displays, printers, projectors, and... Read more...
Google has managed to make serious inroads in the education market thanks to Chrome OS-backed devices from major OEMs. The company has managed to displace long-time favorite Apple as the "go-to" choice for educators due to extremely attractive pricing, and has even drawn the attention of Microsoft. Dell is stepping up its efforts in this market with the launch of the new Chromebook 5000 Series. The first entry in the series is the Chromebook 5190, which will be available in one of two form-factors: 11-inch laptop or 2-in-1 convertible. These devices also bring USB-C support, which is somewhat of... Read more...
It appears that the fallout from Intel's release of BIOS updates to address Spectre and Meltdown chip vulnerabilities continues to rain down on the PC community. Most recently, Dell has advised its customers against installing BIOS/microcode updates that have been distributed to address Spectre (Variant 2). If you recall, there are three exploits making the rounds involving Spectre and Meltdown: Variant 1 (Spectre): CVE-2017-5753 (Bound Check Bypass) Variant 2 (Spectre): CVE-2017-5715 (Branch Target Injection) Variant 3 (Meltdown): CVE-2017-5754 (Rogue Data Cache Load) Dell assures customers that...

Earlier this year at CES 2018, Dell introduced its new XPS 15 2-In-1 convertible laptop, which it considers to be the world's most powerful hybrid machine. In this case, all of its computing muscle is coming from Intel's new 8th Generation Core i5 and Core i7 processors that feature an on-package AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU with 4GB of HBM2. While we previously gave you a hands-on look at the new XPS 15 2-in-1 at the Dell booth, what we have today is a bit more tantalizing. Bear in mind that this is a very early look at the product, however. We've got some results from multiple Rise of the... Read more...
CES 2018 has come to a close, and so begins the arduous wait, for some of the exciting devices we saw, to come to market. The Consumer Electronic Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada is where companies come to tout new wares and announce upcoming products and technologies. While some of the cool tech that was shown leaves us with that "shut-up and take my money" feeling, it’s often not retail-ready, with months of lead-time separating consumers from getting their hands on the geek goodness we spied last week. For those who couldn’t attend the show, it can be difficult navigating the CES myriad... Read more...

Dell has refreshed its Alienware Command Center software, which will come preinstalled on future Alienware notebooks and desktops. The goal with this visually overhauled software package is to bring all of your computer games and gaming rig tweaks into a single, unified interface. The UI has received a significant overhaul, and is dominated by a customizable, animated background (which can be either in white or black). Information is presented efficiently using a tiled-based system, and users will find four primary navigation tabs in the top left-hand corner: Home, Library, FX and Fusion. Home... Read more...
Earlier this week, Intel unloaded its full arsenal of 8th generation Core i5 and Core i7 processors that are backed with AMD Radeon RX Vega M GPUs. The unlikely pair has delivered a mobile powerhouse chip package that combines excellent processing performance with GeForce GTX 1050-class graphics for thin-and-light systems. Dell is the latest to embrace this new "combo" chip, and has placed it inside the XPS 15 2-in-1 convertible. In fact, Dell is proclaiming that the new XPS 15 2-in-1 is "the world's most powerful 2-in-1 ever" -- a claim that Hewlett-Packard has also used for its new Spectre x360... Read more...
We have come a long way from the days of using bulky CRT monitors that were power hungry, heavy, and dominated our desktop real estate with their large footprints. As if to underscore the progress that has been made in the monitor market since then, among the many items Dell is showing off at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas are a pair of new gorgeous looking ultrathin displays. Dell is pitching these new monitors as the world's brightness ultrathin displays in their class. There are two models—the 23.8-inch S2419HM with a 1920x1080 resolution and the 27-inch S2719DM with a 2560x1440... Read more...

"By providing Dell Mobile Connect on its PCs Dell would become the first PC manufacturer to provide complete PC-smartphone wireless integration which allows PC users to stay constantly connected from...

When we looked at Dell's Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition gaming desktop earlier this year, the machine was still technically in a pre-production state. Though we took you on a preliminary guided tour of the system, we felt it premature to look at it under our full-review lens. At that point we were still doing emergency alien brain transplants on it, after all, bringing the machine we had up to production silicon specs, by replacing the pre-production AMD Threadripper chip that shipped with our system. Eventually, things matured with this beastly Threadripper-powered Alienware... Read more...
