Earlier this summer, Dell announced an all-new XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible running Intel's 10th generation 10nm Ice Lake processors. Today, Dell is giving its popular XPS 13 laptop an internal makeover with the addition of another 10th generation Intel processor -- in this case, Comet Lake. Intel officially announced the availability of Comet Lake this morning, and the XPS 13 will make use of four of those processors: Core i3-10110U Core i5-10210U Core i7-10510U Core i7-10710U The Core i7-10710U in particular is an intriguing option for customers, as it is Intel's first hexa-core U-Series processor.

Dell has just unveiled a rather intriguing new desktop that is incredibly modular in design. Meet the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, which manages to house a fully functioning PC within its display stand in a zero-footprint design. Dell is billing this hybrid all-in-one as the "world's most flexible commercial desktop". So, why is Dell making this claim? For starters, both the display and the PC can be upgraded independently of one another. Up to three displays are supported with the system and they all can be swapped out at will. That also means that if for some unfortunate reason that you need to switch out a defective display, it's a simple affair that doesn't result in you having to ship the entire... Read more...

A week ago, we were able to give you a quick look at the performance of Intel's new 10th generation Core processors based on the 10nm process node. These processors have been a long time coming, as Intel has been overly reliant on its 14nm process node as it worked to overcome engineering challenges at 10nm. Now, one of the first machines packing these new Ice Lake-based processors is available to purchase, and it comes from Dell. The XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) was first announced back at Computex, and represents a huge step up in performance compared to its predecessor.  Base systems come with the Core i3-1005G1, which is a dual-core, quad-thread processor with a base clock...

AMD shook up the processor market with its 14nm Zen architecture, which first debuted in 2017. It followed up with the 12nm Zen+ refresh in 2018, and we were introduced to 7nm Zen 2 in early July with the launch of the consumer-centric Ryzen 3000 processor family. While Ryzen processors have been a noticeable thorn in Intel’s side on the consumer side of the equation, the first-generation EPYC server processors have also been making inroads against the well-entrenched Intel Xeons in the enterprise market. With that in mind, AMD tonight is officially launching its second-generation “Rome” EPYC 7002 processor family that is based on Zen 2. These new EPYC processors share... Read more...
The Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 is an almost-perfect example of a modern business laptop. It's light, sleek, powerful, and flexible. And we mean that quite literally -- its 360-degree hinge give users the ability to use it as a regular laptop with a touch-enabled screen, in tent mode for drawing or for viewing movies or presentations, flat for sharing, or folded all the way back for use in tablet mode. The new Dell Latitude 7400 2-In-1 is about 25 percent smaller than the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 14, with extremely narrow bezels, and comes in configurations ranging from 8GB RAM to 16GB, with 128GB to 2TB of solid state storage. Under the hood, the base model offers an 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8265U... Read more...

Some laptop and desktop consumers may want to double-check that they have recently updated their devices. It was discovered that millions of Dell PCs as well as other brands could be vulnerable to hackers.

The Dell SupportAssist software is pre-installed on devices and is intended to “proactively checks the health of your system’s hardware and software.” Since SupportAssist runs health checks on a device, it has unfettered access to the system. SupportAssist is able... Read more...
