Dell recently sent us one of their new Studio XPS 7100 desktops built around AMD's recently launched Phenom II X6 1055T processor. AMD's hexa-core chips don't pack the same punch as Intel's six-core architecture, but the upshot is you'll save a king's bounty by riding into the sunset with AMD, and in this case, with Dell as well. The configuration we're looking at runs $1,450 (currently on sale for $1,150), with lesser spec'd six-core rigs starting out at $699. To put that into perspective, Intel's sole six-core offering -- the Core i7 980X -- commands about a grand just for the processor alone... Dell 6-Core Studio XPS 7100 System Review... Read more...
Last week we reported that Dell's Adamo XPS was apparently dead after it vanished from the company's website, online store, and was listed as out-of-stock everywhere but a handful of Best Buys. It didn't make sense for Dell to have canceled the product just three months after shipping, but customer service reps at both Dell and BB were reporting that the Adamo XPS had been discontinued. Customers interested in still buying one were advised by Best Buy to order immediately. Dell contacted us after our original story and promised to get back in touch over what was going on with the ultra-thin laptop. A company rep posted a blog entry addressing the disappearing/reappearing notebook over at Direct2Dell.... Read more...
Not every high-end, haute couture product turns out to be a bestseller—even Steve Jobs had the Cube—but it's rather odd for a manufacturer to design, advertise, tease, and launch a product only to pull it off the market barely four months later. Nevertheless, that's the news from Dell on the Adamo XPS. The Adamo product line will continue but its 0.4" thick headline XPS system with a 128GB SSD and 4GB RAM as standard has been discontinued. If it's odd for a company to launch a high-end product in November, make it readily available in December, and kill it in March, it's even stranger for company reps and retail partners like Best Buy to identify the Adamo XPS as discontinued while the PR division...

Remember Dell's Adamo XPS that was teased back in early September? Almost a month later, Dell is looking to grab some more attention by introducing two new shots of the 9.99mm-thin notebook. We're still not given much to think on, but the two new images of the Adamo XPS confirm that a 3.5mm headphone jack is present, at least one full-sized USB port is there and the front is easily thinner than the rear. As for the open shot, it looks as if the "butt" of the device sticks out a good one to two inches beyond the LCD's hinge, which is a design point we've already noticed on the 13" Adamo.Click To EnlargeSo, who's drooling?

This year's Intel Developer Forum (or IDF, for short) is really turning into a wild one. Yesterday we saw Intel showcase 22mn chips and introduce the Atom Dev Program, and today its new Clarksfield processor is getting official and placed into a trifecta of Dell machines and one Alienware rig. The flagship product to carry the new mobile Core i7 will be the Alienware M15x, which now boasts a slightly refined chassis and plenty of horsepower for those with enough dough.The Studio 15 and Studio 17, Dell's multimedia-friendly 15" and 17" options, are both being gently refreshed with mobile Core i7 options. The former will ship with an available Core i7 720QM (1.6GHz) or Core i7 820QM (1.73GHz),... Read more...
We had the chance to review Dell's Studio XPS 13 back in early May and found the machine to be sleek and stylish, and a good value. In an effort to provide that same sleek styling and great performance to those looking for a somewhat larger machine, Dell has now issued an updated Studio XPS 16 that seems to up the ante in a number of key areas. The 16" notebook realm is a bit less crowded these days than say the netbook sector and the full-on 17" desktop replacement arena, giving Dell the perfect opportunity to stand out and make a play for those dead-set on a 16" rig. The Studio XPS 13 set itself apart from prior Dell notebooks by adding a touch of flair that was somewhat unheard of for the... Read more...

There isn't much to go on yet, but Dell's still-young Adamo lineup is about to grow by 1. Or by 9.99, depending on what measure you're looking at. Just a few months after Dell introduced the standard Adamo--which was amazingly sleek and thin in its right--the company has now confessed that another Adamo is on the way.The Adamo XPS, as it will be called, hints at high performance and slim size, with a chassis that measures just 9.99mm thick. The tease was timed to launch on 9/9/09, though Dell won't say when this beauty will be fully revealed and shipped. Those interested in signing up for future details can visit the teaser page and input their e-mail address, but we would assume something this... Read more...
With the introduction of every major CPU release from AMD or Intel comes the inevitable flood of new and updated machines tweaked to take advantage. Dell's certainly not one to sit things out while the others play ball, which is why the company has today introduced a new pair of Studio XPS desktops that are available with Intel's new Lynnfield CPUs.Just as Dell's earnings start to head north again, the outfit has made official the Studio XPS 8000 and Studio XPS 9000, the first of which is a mid-range tower designed for casual users and the second of which is geared more for power users. Both rigs are designed to handle multimedia and at least light duty gaming, with an optional Blu-ray drive... Read more...
Dell's Studio line of products is a breath of fresh air to everyone who remembers the company's tendency toward "beige boxes" from days gone by. The hip, modern look embodied by the Studio moniker has rubbed off on the new Studio XPS 13, a tight-fitting ultraportable notebook with loads of style and plenty of power to go around, including a hybrid SLI graphics engine.  Without question, Dell has gone its own way with the Studio XPS 13. It's not trying to compete with the MacBook Airs and MSI X-Slim X340s of the world; instead, it's hoping to spark another trend and lead the way… Typically, users gunning for a 13" machine have to sacrifice extra power to get a machine that's thin, or they...

For the longest while, Dell seemed perfectly content to continue producing notebooks with a minimalist design. Sure, they were perfectly up to snuff internally, but externally they lacked the more agressive lines and personality captured in some of the high-fashion machines from the likes of Alienware, HP and a few other boutique notebook makers. And then, the Studio line was born. As we saw last fall with the company's Studio Hybrid small form factor desktop, Dell's Studio line of products is a breath of fresh air to anyone who remembers the company's tendency toward "beige boxes" from days gone by. The hip, modern look embodied by the Studio moniker has rubbed... Read more...
Dell's new XPS 625 is their latest AMD-based creation, and is the first out of the Dell labs using the relatively new Phenom II processor. Initial reviews of AMD's new chip have been favorable, as this new quad-core processor is slated to deliver roughly the same performance as Intel's quad-core Core 2 processors at very tolerable price points. While it's pretty clear that the Phenom II can't quite crack Core i7 levels of performance in most usage scenarios, the question is, do most users really need that much computing power? Can the Phenom II deliver a great computing experience at a palatable price? Is it worth considering one over an Intel-based Dell system? The XPS 625 is here to help us... Read more...

We evaluated the original Dell XPS 730 in early May, shortly after its initial release. At the time, it was Dell's latest high-end gaming machine and the word on the street was that it would be the last to carry the XPS badge. Moving forward, Dell was to concentrate on their Alienware gaming brand and the XPS brand would lose its gaming focus to embrace multimedia and content creation. Naturally, we checked with Dell directly and while they did confirm the rumor, they also assured us that the XPS 730's life wouldn't be cut short and it would go on to live through a full product cycle. It seems they weren't bluffing, not that we doubted them in the first place. Shortly after Intel released... Read more...
Here at Hot Hardware, we are big fans of the XPS 700 series of gaming desktops. Over the last two years, they have consistently earned our coveted Editor's Choice award time and again. We thought the last incarnation of the 700-series, the XPS 730 H2C, was the best yet in the series. It seems Dell isn't quite done with the XPS 730. Today Dell is announcing a new update to the line-up in the form of the XPS 730x. The extra letter in the model number means an entirely updated platform from Core 2 to the new Core i7 series as well as updated video card options and some new additions to the chassis. The XPS 730x will be available with all three currently available Core i7 models, complete with a... Read more...

Intel continues to drive their 45nm process technology down through a larger cross-section of their Core 2 lineup, not only on the desktop side of their offering but also with their mobile CPUs.   If you recall, recently we put Dell's XPS M1730 gaming notebook through its paces and came away impressed.  At the time, the new Dell gaming dream machine came equipped with an Intel Core 2 Extreme X7900 CPU, built on a 65nm fab process, that clocked in at 2.8GHz with 4MB of L2 cache.  So, what would you call a Core 2 mobile processor at 2.8GHz, with a larger 6MB of L2 cache and built on a smaller, cooler 45nm process?  We're actually not sure what you'd call it but Intel...
