Earlier this year, Dell gave its popular XPS 13 a full redesign with slimmer InfinityEdge display bezels, 10th Gen Intel Ice Lake processors and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. Since that launch, we've seen leaked images and specs for the XPS 15 and the return of the XPS 17. However today, Dell is getting official with these two new XPS family members that complete the line-up refresh. Starting off with the XPS 15, the specifications for this Dell laptop match the leaked specs that we've seen for the past month. That means that there's a 15.6-inch panel (16:10 aspect ratio) that is available in FHD+ (1920x1200) or 4K UHD+ (3840x2400) resolutions. That panel is backed by either Intel... Read more...
Earlier this month, we got our first look at the 2020 editions of the XPS 15 and XPS 17 laptop, which will be featuring 10thgeneration Intel Core (Comet Lake-H) processors. Today, we’re learning much more information about the two laptops, which look to be two formidable competitors that bracket the current 16-inch Apple MacBook Pro in size. The XPS 15 features a 15.6-inch Infinity Edge display that can be had in either FHD+ (1920x1200) or UHD+ (3840x2400) resolutions (16:10 aspect ratio). Base systems get a Core i5-10400H (4 cores/8 threads, 4.5GHz boost), while flagship models are powered by the Core i9-10885H (8 cores/16 threads, 5.3GHz boost). You can opt for integrated Intel...

As tens of thousands of workers have been pushed out of the office and into remote working from home environments due to the coronavirus outbreak around the world, new types of challenges have surfaced that businesses are having to deal with. The big issue is that with so many new companies and workers now working from home, cybercriminals are out to take advantage of those who may not understand the security risks they face and how to take proper countermeasures. Dell reminds us today that with cybercriminals ramping up nefarious activity, organizations need to protect remote workers, starting with the devices they are working with. To help facilitate that protection, Dell has introduced Dell... Read more...
When we evaluated the late 2019 model of Dell's XPS 13, we thought a few small things kept that ultraportable from achieving complete perfection. That machine shipped with Intel's Comet Lake-U family of processors, which are plenty fast on the CPU side of things. However, they lack the graphics "oomph" of Intel's latest Iris Plus graphics, available in Ice Lake-based 10th-Gen processors. This (very slightly) older model also had a 1920x1080 display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, while the Ice Lake-equipped 2-in-1 model had a slightly higher resolution 1920x1200, 16:10 display. We felt like adding those two features to the already excellent XPS 13 would make the perfect ultraportable, but apparently... Read more...
Last week, Intel launched its new 10th generation Comet Lake-H mobile processors, which will find their way into new laptops from the likes of Lenovo, Gigabyte, MSI, and ASUS (among others). As you might expect, Dell will also be among the major OEMs to adopt Comet Lake-H processors, and today we’ve got leaked images of three such devices. The first is the XPS 15 9500, which is a complete redesign for the laptop. In the image above, the XPS 15 9500 is pictured at top, with its larger XPS 17 9700 sibling shown at the right -- the new Precision models are shown at the left and at the bottom. The most striking difference, however, is with the display, which is allegedly... Read more...
Apple iPhones and Macs go together like peanut butter and jelly, but Dell is looking to improve the experience of using an iPhone with a Windows PC. The company is achieving this with an update to its Dell Mobile Connect iOS app, which has now been bumped to Version 3.0.  Dell Mobile Connect for iOS has now gained screen sharing functionality, which was previously only available for users of the Android app. With this feature, whatever is currently displayed on your iPhone is mirrored on your Dell computer’s desktop. You can fully interact with the apps and navigate the UI using your computer's mouse and keyboard (or touch display), just as you would with your fingers if... Read more...
Dell is getting ready to launch new desktops built around Intel's 10th generation processors. Otherwise known as Comet Lake-S, Intel has not yet formally introduced any 10th generation CPUs on the desktop, but given the increased occurrence of types of leaks we have been seeing recently, it was safe to assume a launch was imminent. The new chips will find their way into Dell's XPS Tower and XPS Tower Special Edition desktops. Dell revealed as much in a new promotional video for its 2020 model XPS Tower systems, though did not into detail about the specific processors, only that they are 10 generation parts. Have a watch... "Create without limits using the all-new XPS Tower. Featuring powerful... Read more...
Dell's new OptiPlex 7070 Ultra desktop PC features a new innovative design approach that's sleeker and more useful than traditional small form factor machines, when integrating them with standard displays. Small form factor PCs, like the Intel NUC, Gigabyte BRIX and ZOTAC ZBOX, tend to include VESA mounts for easy attachment to the back of your monitor for a cleaner, all-in-one PC-like appearance while using a standard monitor. The flaw in that methodology is not all monitors have VESA mounting holes on the back and the ones that do tend to either have basic stands that have minimal adjustments or nicer swivel and height-adjustable options that attach to where the VESA holes are. This was a flaw... Read more...
So you slept through the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, and now wish you could travel back in time? Forget the DeLorean—the price of plutonium is off the charts these days—because there are still bargains out there. Over at Dell, you can score discounts on several different gaming PCs, including Alienware-brand desktops and laptops. One of the deals I find especially intriguing is for a decked out Alienware Aurora gaming desktop for $1,564.99 (save $765 over list price). At the heart of this system is a 9th generation Intel Core i7-9700K processor (8-core/8-thread, 3.6GHz to 4.9GHz, 12MB L3 cache) paired with a brawny NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card. Those components... Read more...
The Alienware Concept UFO wasn't the only wild design on display from Dell this week at CES 2020. The company also let loose two additional concepts that are seemingly closer to being actual production devices than the admittedly cool Concept UFO. The two new entries are called the Concept Ori and Concept Duo, and the most intriguing is the former. Concept Ori looks similar in design to the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold that we told you about yesterday, and features a folding 13.3-inch QHD+ OLED display. The display is made of plastic and is one continuous piece that folds right in the middle. Concept Ori When folded, Concept Ori is highly portable, making it easier to fit into... Read more...
Handheld gaming is something that many of us take for granted these days, be it with portable console or a quick Fortnite session with our smartphones. So why couldn't we have that same experience with fully-fledged PC games, albeit with more powerful hardware under the hood than what's fueling your smartphone?. That's a question that the folks at Dell's Alienware division asked, and the result is the Concept UFO prototype, which looks like a chunkier version of the Nintendo Switch with a more premium aluminum-clad chassis. The Concept UFO consists of the main unit which contains the display, and two Joy-Con style controllers that attach on either side of the main unit with a magnetic rail system.... Read more...
Yesterday morning, we first brought you word of Dell's latest XPS 13 ultraportable, which has been completely redesigned for 2020. Dell has hit it out of the park this time around with a device that is smaller, thinner, and lighter while at the same time packing in a slightly larger 13.4-inch 16:10 display. Needless to say, we were eager to get our hands on the new laptop, and we've got video footage of the XPS 13 in its full glory embedded below: It's one thing to see the XPS 13 in renders, but the real-life footage gives you a good idea at how tiny the bezels are with the “Four-Sided” InfinityEdge display. Even with the extremely tiny bezels all around, Dell was still able... Read more...
Earlier this morning, Dell announced its all-new XPS 13 ultraportable, but that's not all that the company has to offer. It has also pulled the wraps off the brand-new Latitude 9510 family, which is a business-class 15-inch notebook/2-in-1 that is powered by Intel 10th generation Core processors. With the Latitude 9510, Dell has further trimmed the bezels, giving users fewer visual distractions to the vibrant 15-inch InfinityEdge display. Since the Latitude 9510 is available in traditional laptop and 2-in-1 configurations, there are two display options presented to customers. The former gets a 15-inch FHD anti-glare panel, while the latter features a 15-inch FHD touch display covered... Read more...
Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor (AW2521HF) The 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is just around the corner and many companies have already hinted at the kinds of products that consumers can expect this year. Dell just announced several monitors that cover everything from their Alienware to their UltraSharp line. Gamers will be particularly interested in the new Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor (AW2521HF). It features a 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response times, IPS technology, and AMD Radeon FreeSync and G-Sync compatibility. The monitor has a sleek and slim design and even includes height markers for more versatility. It will be available on March 11th, 2020 for $499.99 USD. Dell also plans to release... Read more...
The Dell XPS 13 has always earned high marks here at HotHardware for its excellent all-around performance and highly portable design. However, the folks at Dell aren't content with the status-quo, and have launched a completely redesigned XPS 13 that delivers all of the performance that we've come to expect within a thinner, lighter, and smaller chassis. We have to kick off the discussion by talking about the display. Even though the new XPS 13 is smaller all around, Dell was able to equip the laptop with a larger 13.4-inch InfinityEdge display (16:10 aspect ratio). Actually, it's a 4-sided InfinityEdge display if we get technical. That means that the bezels are minimal and the XPS... Read more...
Dell's XPS 13 family is split into two main product lines; 2-in-1 convertible notebooks and traditional clamshell-style laptops. It wasn't too long ago that we looked at the latest 2-in-1 with Intel's 10th-generation Core i7-1065G7. That machine was a thin, light, flexible beauty and a great performer, thanks in no small part to its improved graphics capability with the Intel 10th Gen Core series of CPUs. So when Dell offered up the latest XPS 13 clamshell version with a bright 4K display and Intel's Comet Lake 6-core 10th Gen CPU on tap, we just had to kick the tires a bit.  For those not in the know, 10th-generation Intel Core mobile processors have two very different CPU families. The... Read more...
This is one of the best times of the year to build or buy a new PC, whether it's a desktop configuration or a banging laptop. That's because Black Friday is in full swing. It's a particularly strategic time to buy a premium system, as Black Friday discounts can take the sting out of their premium price tags. As such, you can hop over to Dell today and save $750 on an Alienware m15 gaming laptop. The listed "estimated value" on this configuration is $2,149.99. That's a bit optimistic on Dell's part—the list price is not always the actual price—but you're still getting a strong setup for the money. When the discount goes live at 12:00 pm ET (9:00 am PT) today, the Alienware m15 highlighted... Read more...
Earlier this year, we reported that Frank Azor -- who was one of the original co-founders of Alienware and served as VP and GM for Dell's XPS, G Series and Alienware gaming brands -- was exiting the company to take position at AMD. Today, we have received confirmation from multiple reliable sources that Azor's official replacement has been named, and she is none other than Vivian Lien of ASUS. For those that have been around the enthusiast computing and gaming community for a while, Vivian should be familiar to you. She most recently served as the Global Head of Marketing for ASUS Gaming. Vivian has been with ASUS since 2007, where she has become a powerhouse presence in the marketing... Read more...
Dell is already a known quantity in the professional market with its lineup of well-received UltraSharp monitors. In fact, last year we took the time to review the UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor (UP2718Q) and gave it high marks for color reproduction and excellent HDR performance. This year at Adobe Max 2019, Dell unveiled the 2020 version of the UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor (UP2720Q). Dell includes all of the features that made us give its predecessor high marks including 100% Adobe RGB, 98% DCI-P3 and 80% BT2020 coverage. The key upgrades this year come with the addition of two new features: Thunderbolt 3 integration and a built-in colorimeter. The UP2720Q includes... Read more...
Now that Halloween has come and gone, we can look ahead to the holiday season, and of course the discounts that come with it. This is typically the best time of the year to score a deal on PC hardware. Dell is getting a head start on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday festivities with some early deals on desktops, laptops, smart TVs, and more. Dell's Pre-Black Friday Desktop And Laptop Deals Some of the discounts are hefty. Shown above is Dell's G5 15 SE Gaming Laptop. As part of Dell's "Black Friday Sneak Peek," it's marked down 15 percent ($250 off) to $1,419.99 and comes configured with an Intel Core i7-9750H processor, 16GB (2x8GB) of DDR4-2666 memory, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, and 512GB...

Intel officially launched its 10nm Ice Lake-U family back in August, and there have been a handful of systems shipping with the power-sipping processors. Among the first OEMs to jump onboard was Dell with the XPS 13 2-in-1 (2019) we recently evaluated. When that refreshed convertible launched, it was available with one of three processors: Intel Core i3-1005 G1 processor (2C/4T, 4MB cache, up to 3.4GHz) Intel Quad Core i5-1035 G1 processor (4C/8T, 6MB cache, up to 3.6GHz) Intel Quad Core i7-1065 G7 processor (4C/8T, 8MB cache, up to 3.9GHz) Not long after those Ice Lake processors were announced, Intel launched its 10th generation Comet Lake-U processors. Dell has since given... Read more...
Many of today’s consumer-centric laptops, tablets, and convertibles are adorned in sleek aluminum chassis’ that are thin and good looking, but can’t withstand a drop from more than a foot or two without incurring some major damage. For those that need a more robust system that can stand up to abuse, Dell has unveiled its new Latitude 7220 Rugged Extreme tablet. Dell claims that it is the world’s most powerful and lightweight tablet in its class, and it has been designed to adhere to MIL-STD-810G/H testing for protection. It is also IP65 rated for dust/dirt and water intrusion when out in the field. The rugged exterior has been proven to protect the tablet from drops of... Read more...
