Alienware's beastly Area-51 gaming desktop is getting a specs upgrade today with the addition of new second-generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. Alienware began using Ryzen Threadripper last year in the Area-51 when AMD’s HEDT processor lineup was initially launched. This time around, Alienware is providing two additional processor options: the Threadripper 2920X (12 cores, 24 threads) and the Threadripper 2950X (16 cores, 32 threads). For those that prefer to keep the price tag of the Area-51 from ballooning quickly, the first-generation Ryzen Threadripper 1900X... Read more...

The Dell XPS 15 should look familiar if you're a regular HotHardware reader. We’ve seen various iterations of this power-users’ mobile PC over the past few years, usually with an Editors’ Choice logo pegged at the end of the review. The latest version keeps that winning streak alive, thanks to new, more powerful six-core Coffee Lake-based Intel Core processor options and robust NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics. As in previous generations, this new model is all about the upgrades, and the big news this time around is a selection of Coffee Lake 8Th Gen Intel Core i5, i7, and... Read more...
It typically follows that once Intel or AMD roll out new processors, whether for desktop or mobile (or the server environment), systems builders are quick to announce new systems built around the chips in question. Such is the case today with Intel launching a new wave of 8th generation Core processors for thin and light notebooks and 2-in-1 convertibles. Seizing on the opportunity, Dell today refreshed its Inspiron 2-in-1 lineup with Intel's new 8th gen Core CPUs. There are two categories of Inspiron convertibles that are seeing updates, including the Inspiron 7000 and Inspiron 5000. Starting... Read more...
Dell's XPS 13 family has always been highly regarded for performance-value and solid build quality, and now the company is upping the value quotient with a new lower-end SKU. Priced at a low $899, this is the lowest entry point yet for an XPS 13 equipped with an 8th generation Core processor. That price gets you a Core i3-8130U processor paired with 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and a 13.3-inch 1080p Infinity Edge display. Although the $899 price point is a new low for an 8th generation Core SKU, an XPS 13 with a Core i3-7100U can be had for just $799, while the next step up is a Core... Read more...

Gamers are willing to spend more on PC hardware than the average consumer, but at the same time, they are a knowledgeable and discerning bunch who understand exactly what it is they are getting for their hard-earned buck. They also follow market trends and appreciate a good value when one comes along. Dell is likely hoping that is what gamers will see in its recently introduced G Series laptops. And after spending some hands-on time with the new G7 15 Gaming, we think the Round Rock crew might be on to something. As the model name suggests, the G7 15 Gaming is a 15.6-inch laptop. It sits atop... Read more...

If you head over to Woot, you can score a Dell 31.5-inch display (model D3218HN) for $154.99 right now. The only real caveat is that it is factory reconditioned, not brand new. However, Dell backs the display with a 90-day warranty, so you have some time to burn it in and see if there are any issues. At 31.5 inches, this is a big display, though not quite "ultra-wide" as it's labeled. It features an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel with a 1920x1080 resolution and 60Hz refresh rate. Those...

Gaming laptops typically make no bones about price points and usually command a premium, due to their more powerful components on board. Either that, or some machines pack potent components inside somewhat lack-luster skins, leaning into their inner mojo to attract gamers. With its G Series, Dell set out to appeal to price-conscious mobile gamers that still want good firepower, in addition to a quality, good-looking chassis design. Lower cost gaming notebooks often sacrifice on materials and build quality in an effort to drive cost down. However, in a follow-on to its successful Inspiron Gaming... Read more...
