Dell has some enticing new hardware on tap for its newest Inspiron 7000 series laptops, including the latest and most powerful Intel Skylake processors and NVIDIA GPUs, but the computer maker sent us a decidedly modest version for this evaluation. PC makers usually load their review systems to the hilt, in an effort to make them perform well in commonly used benchmarks, but Dell is confident that its Inspiron 15 7000 delivers solid, real-world performance for the money, even at base specifications, so we gave it a look. Before we dig into the system we tested, let’s take discuss where it falls in Dell’s current family of laptops. If you’re looking for the most powerful and stylish of Dell’s offerings,...

There’s no doubt that we at HotHardware were rather impressed with the 2015 XPS 13 when it debuted earlier this year, enough so to give it our Editor’s Choice award. Dell managed to cram a 13.3-inch 3200x1800 QHD+ display with edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass -- or in Dell parlance, an InfinityEdge display – into a 12-inch frame.  If you've seen this display in the flesh, you'll note that the top and side edge bezels of the display are near non-existant. Dell has now brought that same beautiful InfinityEdge display technology to its larger XPS 15, which the company boasts has the same footprint as a 14-inch notebook. But Dell didn’t just stay the course by using the QHD+ resolution from the smaller... Read more...
Love it or hate it, Apple's MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines have remained a watermark for which the majority of notebook manufacturers aspire to, whether it's enthusiast gaming companies like Razer with their Blade, or mainstream vendors like Dell via their outstanding XPS 13. Enter Asus. They've utilized their ZenBook line to satisfy a wide range of demographics and price points, but their UX501 -- with its "Pro" designation, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m GPU, and 4K touchscreen display -- is a Zenbook aspiring to meet and exceed Apple's flagship notebook, and look stunning while doing it.  As you'll see, in many ways, it's mission accomplished...Laptops can be sexy additions to your...

Yesterday, NVIDIA announced the launch of its GeForce GTX 960M and GTX 950M mobile GPUs. The superior SKU, the GTX 960M, features a 1096 MHz core clock, 2500 MHz GDDR5 memory, and 640 CUDA cores. “So, if you’ve been itching to take your gaming on the go with a portable notebook design, now’s your chance to play with the big boys,” bragged NVIDIA. ASUS is definitely playing with the big boys with its all-new Republic of Gamers (ROG) G501 gaming notebook. The G501 measures just 0.81-inches thick and weighs in at 4.54 pounds. The chassis is constructed out of aluminum and features red highlights along the display bezel and a red-backlit keyboard. A fourth generation Intel Core i7-4720HQ quad-core... Read more...
Last year, NVIDIA delivered GeForce GTX 980M and 970M GPUs, which offered mobile gamers a no-compromise solution in a mid- to large-size notebook form-factor. Now, NVIDIA is extending its GTX 900M series with the introduction of the GTX 960M and 950M. NVIDIA is hoping to prove that the race to deliver thin (less than one-inches thick) and light notebooks doesn’t have to mean that graphics performance has to suffer. Both the GTX 960M and 950M support DirectX 12, feature Maxwell architecture, include 640 CUDA cores, and are built on a 28nm process. However, that’s where the similarities end. The GTX 950M has a core clock of 914MHz and supports DDR3 memory (1000 MHz) or GDDR5 memory (2500 MHz).... Read more...
