Svelati in occasione del CES 2013, i nuovi laptop Dell Inspiron hanno riscosso un certo successo tra il pubblico e gli addetti ai lavori, soprattutto per quanto riguarda il rapporto performance/consumi che i dispositivi hanno dimostrato e che il produttore ha ottimizzato tenendo conto dei feedback degli utenti. Dopo la presentazione il produttore si appresta a proporre sul mercato i vari modelli, diamo un sguardo a prezzi e specifiche.
Dell aggiorna il proprio catalogo di monitor con ben cinque nuovi prodotti appartenenti alla linea S, parliamo dei modelli S2240L, S2340L, S2440L, S2740L e S2340T. Pensati soprattutto per l’intrattenimento multimediale, questi monitor sono caratterizzati da un’ottimizzata resa cromatica e un design borderless, sempre più ricercato dagli utenti.
Tra le cinque proposte spicca sicuramente il nuovo S2340T, un monitor Multi-Touch con diagonale da 23 pollici, ideato per sfruttare a pieno le funzionalità di Windows 8.
Dotato di un supporto articolato multi-posizione, inclinabile fino a 10° anteriormente e posteriormente, il Dell S2340T ha un angolo di visuale di 178/178 ° e supporta la funzionalità Image Enhance che permette di ottimizzare la nitidezza delle immagini. Onboard è inoltre prevista una porta USB 3.0 che permette di collegare lo schermo al proprio PC abilitando velocemente funzionalità touch, grafica, video, audio, Ethernet e webcam.
A poco più di una settimana dalla kermesse Microsoft di New York che aprirà le porte a Windows 8 e tutti i dispositivi correlati, ecco che anche Dell decide di venire allo scoperto e svelare alcuni dei prezzi ufficiali tra cui quello dei nuovi XPS 12, XPS One 27 e Inspiron One 23.
Il primo (foto in apertura) non è altro che un ibrido che abbiamo già potuto vedere in occasione dell’IFA di Berlino 2012 e apprezzarne l’idea originale e la scelta dei materiali, un terminale che dalla comune ‘posizione notebook’ può essere facilmente ribaltato e trasformarsi in un tablet touch screen con risoluzione full HD. Nessun compromesso neanche sotto l’aspetto hardware con una potente piattaforma Intel Ivy Bridge a disposizione. Costo con Windows 8 a bordo pari a 999€.
Dell gave us a heads up back at IFA that it was planning on offering its high-end XPS 27 all-in-one with an optional touchscreen. Well, that day has come: the company just announced that it will begin accepting pre-orders today, with the touch-enabled models starting at $1,600. As a quick refresher, that 27-inch screen tops out a whopping 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, while the stand tilts to a near-flat angle of 60 degrees. If sixteen hundred bucks is more money than you were planning on spending, Dell will also offer the Inspiron One 23 with an optional touchscreen. At a fraction of the cost ($780 and up) it makes do with lesser specs (a 1080p, not quad HD, display, for instance), but it has been refreshed with Ivy Bridge, so you should at least be future-proofed on the CPU front. Again, you can order these starting today, but don’t expect them to ship until after October 26th.
Dell’s built quite a reputation for delivering solid monitors at reasonable prices, and it’s now expanded its offerings in a fairly big way with no less than five new S Series models, some of which boast edge-to-edge glass and/or IPS panels. On the top end is the 27-inch S2740L, which has the most connectivity options of the lot (DVI, VGA, HDMI and a pair of USB ports) and, of course, the highest price tag at $400. From there, things drop to $300 with the 24-inch S2440L (the only non-IPS model of the lot), and go all the way down to $200 for the 21.5-inch S2240M — the three lower-end models ditch the edge-to-edge glass but still retain minimal bezels. Unlike some of the company’s higher-end UltraSharp models, though, all five monitors have a 16:9 aspect ratio instead of 16:10, and you’ll get a standard 1920 x 1080 resolution regardless of the size you choose. Complete specs for each can be found at the links below.
We previously saw some leaked specifications on Dell’s new Latitude 10 Windows 8 tablet, and now the device has been officially unveiled and it comes with a 10.1 inch IPS touchscreen display.
The 10.1 inch touchscreen display on the Dell Latitude 10 features a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and the screen is covered in Gorilla Glass, it also comes with 128GB of built in storage plus 2G of RAM and an SD card slot.
Other specifications on the Dell Latitude 10 include dual cameras with a HD camera on the front for video chat and a rear facing 8 megapixel camera for photos and video.
The Dell Latitude 10 also comes with USB 2,0, a microUSB port for charging, a microSIM card slot and a 60Wh battery, plus a dock which adds four USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet and HDMi and audio out.
There are no details as yet on when Dell will start selling the new Latitude 10, although their press release said it will be available at the Windows 8 launch so we should get more details next month.
Dell has today revealed a new addition to its range and its first AH-IPS display on its Japanese blog, ahead of any international announcements. However Dell has now made the International page available on their website with full specifications.
The Dell U2713HM is the first Advanced High Performance IPS display to be sold by Dell, and features a widescreen 16:9, 2,560 x 1,440 (WQHD) resolution, with a 178 degree vertical / 178 degree horizontal viewing angle.
Dell’s U2713HM AH-IPS display also promises a 37 percent reduction in energy consumption compared to the older model U2711. Other features include 4 x USB 3.0 ports and 1 x Dual Link Digital Visual Interface connectors (DVI-D) with HDCP, 1 x HDMI , and 1 x VGA.

When Microsoft launches Window 8 later this year, we will also see a number of new Window RT tablets, which are being developed by a number of manufacturers.
There were apparently four manufacturers who had agreed to build a Windows RT tablet with Microsoft for the launch, and the list includes Asus, Toshiba, Samsung An Lenovo.
HP had also apparently been asked to build a Windows RT tablet, but they decided not too, this apparently left room for another company, and Dell was rumored to be in the running.
According to the report Dell are working on a Windows RT tablet, but it would appear that Dell will not be one of the companies releasing one at launch.
Dell has today launched a couple of new high powered laptop additions to its range, in the form of the Dell XPS 14 and XPS 15. Which are both equipped with Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors and can be fitted with solid state disks if desired. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
The Dell XPS laptops are available to purchase from $1099, with upgrade options offering Core i7 processors, supported by up to 8GB of RAM and storage provided by a 512GB SSD. XPS 15 has a starting price of $1299.
The difference between the XPS 14 and XPS 15 being the size of the screen 14 and 15 inch respectively with a 1600 x 900 (XPS 14) and 1920 x 1080 (XPS 15) resolution.
Other available options include a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630m graphics card with 1GB of video memory for the XPS 14 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 640m graphics card with 2GB of video memory on the larger XPS 15.
Let’s be honest here: there hasn’t been an overly compelling option in the all-in-one PC space in a really, really long time. Not to say there weren’t decent options, but that “blow you away” factor has been missing for a good while. No more. Dell’s wildly handsome XPS One 27 has hit the ground running, and it’s garnering near-universal praise across the web. While it boasts a somewhat steep price point ($1,399 and up), packs a touchpanel option and is landing just months before Windows 8′s debut, critics at large seem to have fallen back in love with the AIO form factor thanks to this one machine.
Hot Hardware lauded the Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA Kepler graphics, and they had a tough time controlling their adoration for the Samsung PLS panel that stole the show. PCMag struggled to find cons, noting that the rig managed to put “almost every technology and feature we’re looking for in a compact stylish chassis.” AnandTech, however, rightfully points out that the lack of a touchpanel is no big deal in the land of Windows 7, but not providing the option for those looking forward to a Metro-fied Windows 8 experience may end up hurting the value proposition in the long run. Hovering over that buy button? Restrain yourself a bit longer while you dive into the source links below.
Dell is offering a new all-in-one for back to school. The XPS One 27 all-in-one, which has a sweet 27-inch screen, with an impressive resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. All configurations are going to have Ivy Bridge processors (Core i5 or i7) with up to 16GB of memory, and a 1TB 7,200RPM hard drive that can be swapped for a 2TB HDD or 32GB SSD.
Other features include Waves MaxxAudio 4, Infinity-branded speakers, a Blu-ray drive and optional 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT640M GPU memory (upgradeable from integrated Intel graphics). If that isn’t enough, there is also an optional internal TV tuner, four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports with power charge, audio out, HDMI, VGA, mic and headphone jacks and an 8-in-1 memory card reader.
The XPS One 27 starts at $1,399, and is available in Asia starting today. It should hit the US in a few weeks.
It’s far from official, but from the looks of things, an update to Dell’s Latitude line may be incoming. According to Dutch site Tweakers.net, the outfit’s 14-inch refresh, bearing model number 6430u, will purportedly sport a 1366 x 768 display, dual-core i3, i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge processor and measure in at a slightly chunky 20.9mm thick. For the business-minded types that it’s being aimed at, this enterprise-ready Ultrabook will also run Intel’s vPro platform, giving IT departments worldwide easy access for data management and remote wipes, in addition to supporting a smartcard reader and an optional fingerprint scanner. As for its SSD innards, the unit should be available in configurations up to 256GB with a maximum of 8GB RAM allotted. Since this fella exists in a grey zone for now, there’s no official pricing or release date to speak of, though rumors do point to a June bow. Check out the source below for a translated take on this pre-release kit.
It may not be as wavy as the alloyed 15R from a couple of years back, but this new “special edition” Inspiron is packing a few goodies that are far more interesting than a set of sinuous patterns. Thanks to a product page on Dell’s Singapore website, we were able to spot one of the company’s first Ivy Bridge machines, the Inspiron 15R. Per the listing, Dell’s 15.6-inch laptop is sporting a hot-off-the-press Core i7-3612QM CPU, 6GB or 8GB of RAM (depending on configuration), AMD Radeon HD 7730M graphics and a 1TB, 5400RPM hard drive. Additionally, you’ll be able to choose between two different displays: an HD WLED, 1366 x 768 or a 1920 x 1080, FHD True-Life. As of right now, the better-specced of the two models is carrying a hefty $1,749 price tag, while the lower-end 15R is $1,599. Those living in Singapore can hit up the source link below if you’d like to grab a piece of that fresh Ivy Bridge pie.
You don’t have to be a marketing skeptic to agree that “Ultrabook” is a somewhat hyperbolic term for a class of devices designed a little thinner, a little lighter and maybe a little quicker than those notebooks that have come before. From a pure hardware standpoint there’s nothing particularly “ultra” about them when compared to a standard Wintel lappytop, but manufacturers are, thankfully, using this as an opportunity to raise their game on another front that’s becoming increasingly important in the world of portable computing: aesthetics.
Compared to clunky laptops of yore, many Ultrabooks mark a truly massive step forward when it comes to purity of design and Dell is showing some impressive chops with the new XPS 13. But, when you’re buckled in to coach class and it’s time to get to work, looks are less important than having a solid laptop that performs. Does the new XPS have the brawn to match its beauty? Let’s find out.
Alienware’s latest PC is an attempt to fire a salvo right across the bows of Sony and Microsoft’s gaming flagships. It looks like the (slightly overweight) lovechild of the pair; like an alternate universe console. The X51 borrows liberally from the design schools of both the Xbox (matte sides) and the PlayStation 3 (slot-loading optical drive, front panel gloss). The Alienware logo rotates to suit both vertical and horizontal setups. The device is around the size of the original PS3, but it looked pretty petite in comparison to There’s a litany of holes on the back of the X51, including plenty of USB ports and audio options. Reacquaint yourself with some technical specifics after the break, alongside our hands-on impressions with Super Street Fighter IV.
Alienware may have just upgraded its Aurora gaming rig, but that’s not to keep the company from giving more diminutive form factors some love. Just this evening, the subsidiary of Dell announced the X51, a slim gaming PC that’s designed to orient itself either vertically or horizontally on the desktop — complete with an Alienware logo that properly rotates depending on positioning. The system includes both Core i3 and i5 options, and features a slot-loading optical drive with an option for Blu-ray. While it’s no shocker, the X51 can be upgraded to 8GB of RAM and a full 1TB of storage. Further, the case accommodates a single, full size NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 graphics card, (with the GTX 555 available as an upgrade), and features an external power supply that’s available in 240W or 330W versions. Users can also expect HDMI 1.4, on-board WiFi, USB 3.0 and digital 7.1 surround sound. As a nifty trick, the computer’s accent colors can be conveniently modified with the Alienware Command Center software. Touting immediate availability, customers can place orders for the X51 right away, with configurations starting as low as $699. For the complete set of specs that make up this Mini-ITX gamer, just follow the break.
Dell has just taken the wraps off a brand new addition to the Alienware family, hailing it, rather poetically, as “a serenade to raw gaming power.” It’s called the Alienware Aurora, and it’s staring at you with a Cylon-like grin in the image above. Beneath its menacing veneer lurks Intel’s six-core, 3000 series Core i7CPU, an X79 Express chipset and quad-channel DDR3 memory, all of which are kept in check by Dell’s liquid cooling and active venting technologies. The gaming rig also supports both multi-display and 3D configurations, with GDDR5 memory-laced graphics cards. In case you’re not satisfied, you can always get under the hood and tinker with it yourself, without even busting out your tool belt. The Alienware Aurora is available now for prices starting at $2,200, so hit up the source link for more details.
Dell termina la produzione del suo ultimo tablet Android con diagonale da 7 pollici uscito lo scorso anno seguendo quanto già accaduto con lo Streak 5. Dopo aver portato Android Honeycomb ufficialmente sul Dell Streak 7, questo si prepara al pensionamento focalizzando l’attenzione sul prodotto da 10 pollici Dell Streak 10 Pro, disponibile al momento solo in Cina, e su nuovi smartphone multipiattaforma tra cui il Dell Streak Pro 101DL in uscita sul mercato giapponese dal mese di Gennaio.
As far as product launches go, Dell didn’t exactly rip the Band-Aid off the XPS 14z. After teasing it back in September, the company let all the specs out of the bag, but stopped short of naming a price and ship date for the United States. Well, now we know: this 14-incher will be available in the US and Canada November 1, and will start at $1,000 — a price that puts it in direct competition with the likes of the HP Envy 14 and Sony VAIO SA series.
Like these other laptops, the 14z commands a premium over cheaper models, with beefier specs and a (supposedly) more luxurious design. With Core i5 and i7 processor options, discrete graphics, USB 3.0 and an optional solid-state drive, it offers a lot of the same specs as its peers, though it manages to stand out in a couple key ways. One, it sports an LG Shuriken display, which crams a 14-inch screen into a chassis normally reserved for 13-inch systems (translation: its bezels are super narrow). And with a starting weight of 4.36 pounds, it’s lighter than a lot of the other laptops you’re probably considering. But are these bullet points enough to make it a smart buy? Read on to find out.
