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...
Intel has been gradually rolling out its 7th generation Kaby Lake-based Core series processors for an array of computing platforms, from desktops to notebooks and 2-in-1 hybrid devices. We've shown you what Kaby Lake can do for enthusiast and gamer desktop platforms. We've even recently explored optimizing its price/performance ratio through overclocking, and of course, Kaby Lake notebooks led Intel's charge starting in the summer of last year.What we haven't gotten a chance to look at yet is Intel's lowest powered Kaby Lake variant, known as Kaby Lake-Y. Kaby Lake-Y is the the 4.5 -... Read more...
Microsoft has a sleeper hit on its hands with its Surface Hub family. While many didn’t know what to make of Microsoft’s 55- and 84-inch Windows 10-powered multi-touch displays when they were first announced, both have gone on to become a billion-dollar business for the company. Dell has obviously seen Microsoft’s success and it wants in on a piece of the action. Following the introduction of the 70-inch Interactive Conference Room Monitor during the summer of 2016, Dell today announced its new 55-inch and 86-inch Interactive Touch Monitors. Whereas the 70-inch model was “saddled” with a 1080p... Read more...
The annual Consumer Electronics Show – CES – is typically chock full of bleeding-edge technology. Numerous companies take advantage of CES as the backdrop to launch or announce new products, and this year's CES 2017 was no exception. But for every killer piece of technology shown off at CES, there are a dozens of chintzy unmentionables that fill the millions of square feet that comprise the show's multiple venues. The Las Vegas Convention center and virtually all of the surrounding upscale hotels and resorts are packed to gills with CES-related tech products every year. It can be tough... Read more...
So, you think that you are hot stuff with your 4K monitor? That’s mere child’s play. Oh, you have a 5K monitor? Get of here with that weaksauce! Dell just introduced the UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD Monitor (UP3218K) which comes with a staggering 8K screen resolution. 4K displays have a resolution of 3840x2160, so it should come as no surprise that the UP3218K has an 8K resolution of 7680x4320. That works out 280 pixels per inch (PPI) for this 32-inch display. According to Dell, this is the equivalent of a 14MP display. While the technical specs are no doubt impressive, Dell also is touting impressive... Read more...
Gamers might be drawn to Dell’s refreshed XPS family or the Pascal-sportin’ Inspiron 7000 series, but business users might be more interested in what Dell is cooking up in its Latitude family. Feast your eyes on the new Latitude 7285 2-in-1 convertible. The Latitude 7285 is aimed at business users that want a wire-free experience, and does so thanks to wireless charging technology from WiTricity. This support is enabled via the optional Latitude 7285 Wireless Charging Keyboard. When combined with the Wireless Charging Mat, you won’t have to worry about plugging in a proprietary power connector... Read more...
