Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place. We wanted to share some of the things that have helped us stay productive and more-or-less content since we began physically distancing ourselves from our loved ones and friends who live outside of our homes.
One of the best things about CES is learning about the future. Companies announce what’s definitely coming, but they also talk about their ambitious projects, the ones they’re still refining but show the direction they see for the future. Dell showed us two concept PCs this week that aren’t yet available but indicate where Dell sees the future of computing, and it looks amazing!
We’re past the days of “Dude, you’re getting a Dell”, but after reviewing everything Dell has on deck for 2020, that 20+-year-old catchphrase might make a comeback, because, well…you’re going to want a Dell!
Lenovo lavished attention on their business line with a ThinkPad refresher, but heading into IFA they’re showing some love to consumers as well with new lineups in monitors, laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, and desktops!
We’re headed into the fall, which means major refreshed lineups of all kinds of tech in time for the holiday season. Dell and Alienware are here to capture your imagination and your wallet with all-new XPS, Inspiron, Alienware, and Dell G devices!
Dell isn’t anywhere close to done with their CES announcements yet. Alienware takes all the gaming attention, but if you like to rock the Dell logo while you’re playing World of Warcraft, Dell’s G series gaming laptops have your name on them! (Not literally, unless you’re Michael Dell, in which case it would be very strange for you to be getting your news from Gear Diary).
Dell may not always get pulses racing with excitement, but if anything in their lineup is designed to turn heads, it’s the XPS. The new XPS 13 crams so much good stuff into one computer you’re almost going to be excited enough to tell people “Dude, I’m getting a Dell!”
Dell has been making the Latitude line for quite some time, and they’re intent on keeping it cutting edge for the masses. The latest improvements include a 2-in-1 design, 14″ screen, and LTE!
Desktop towers went from being a fixture in every home to a rarity, but the ones that are still made fit niches that go above and beyond the sea of boring laptops. Dell is trying to make you excited for a desktop again by adding Intel K-Series processors into new XPS and Alienware desktops! Alienware Aurora is designed to give you the ultimate edge in all things gaming. It features a special “thermally advantaged” chassis, updated graphics cards, a liquid cooling solution, and of course, a 9th Generation 8-Core Series processor. The Aurora will also come with Alienware Command Center,…
Dell has been busy pumping out gaming computers lately, they haven’t forgotten those of us who think Super Mario 2 was the height of gaming technology. They’re at IFA this week, and they have a full suite of Inspiron, XPS, and other software and hardware improvements to make it faster and easier to get things done!
Dell and Alienware are at Gamescom 2o18, and they’ve got a slew of announcements designed to remind you why Alienware is synonymous with top of the line PC gaming. There are new monitors, fun new keyboard LED lighting, updated GPUs, new ways to manage peripherals, and an esports academy!
If you love the look and feel of the Dell PS 13 2-in-1 but it doesn’t offer enough display real estate for you, you’re in luck. Dell has finally announced a release date of March 29th for the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1.
No matter how much gaming seems to shift to mobile devices these days, there will always be a need for bigger, faster, stronger processing to push the video game experience to new levels. Dell and Alienware have been on the forefront of these devices for some time now, and they’re hitting the hardcore gamers as well as budget-conscious buyers with their new lineups.
With more than 4,000 companies exhibiting at CES, choosing the best of CES was a challenge. Even so, we want to recognize the products we saw that are truly innovative, take technology in new directions or, in one case, make something great accessible to every consumer.
Dell has two new monitors on the way. The Dell 24 and 27 Ultrathin Monitors are packed with features yet surprisingly affordable. The 24” model will be just $299.99 while the 27” model will be just 27”. Both models will arrive at the end of January and look to be an integral part of Dell’s 2018 lineup.
It may not keep you up at night, but many of us are concerned about how our old electronics are affecting the environment. Fortunately, Dell and jewelry Nikki Reed have teamed up to come up with a new use for old Dell electronics – and that is to recycle them into jewelry.
Dell has reimagined their popular XPS 13 laptop and it’s more svelte than ever before. To that effect, Dell claims that it’s now the world’s smallest 13-inch laptop. It manages to do this by fitting a 13-inch InfinityEdge display inside an 11 inch frame. Weighing in at just 2.68 lbs, the new XPS 13 for 2018 is indeed smaller, 30% thinner, and lighter than its predecessor. For additional reference, its predecessor weighed about 2.93 lbs with a Quad HD touch display, so it’s shaved off nearly a quarter of a pound.
My current home computing setup includes a 13” MacBook Pro connected to two 27” monitors. They look great and get the job done. But there is little that compares to the Dell UP2718Q 27” 4K HDR Monitor. With amazing resolution and remarkable color accuracy, it is a monitor built for professionals. It’s truly impressive with a price to match.
It’s not often that a monitor really piques my interest, but the Dell UltraSharp 38 Curved Monitor has done just that. The company’s first 37.5 ultrawide curved screen monitor will be perfect for anyone who needs a lot of screen room while using multiple windows.
USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 are the new connectivity hotness, and the docking opportunities are a big reason. Under the right conditions, a single cable can provide video, audio, data and power, not to mention high bandwidth for devices like fast storage arrays and external graphics cards.
The Dell XPS 13 has turned out to be such a fantastic travel laptop that I’d find myself wishing for a larger version, and the Dell XPS 15 does not disappoint. With its machined aluminum body, carbon fiber composite interior, and Gorilla Glass Infinity Edge touchscreen, the XPS 15″ manages to wedge a 15.6″ laptop into a 14″ body.
