DELL IS SELLING OUR FAVORITE BUDGET GAMING LAPTOP FOR $800 RIGHT NOW

Bargains are in a bit of a lull before the holidays arrive, but there are still a few decent deals out there. Right now, Dell is offering a 15-inch gaming laptop with a Core i5 Kaby Lake processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card for $800, and IPS screen. That last detail—the IPS screen—makes this price particularly appealing, given our experience with the Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming earlier this year. Back at launch, we loved its performance but…

Dell customers targeted by phone scams that might be an inside job

Dell famously increased its outsourcing program when it was riding high at the top of the PC market. The company’s fortunes have changed over the years, as it’s now a privately held firm once again, but it still outsources most tech support to call centers in India. Now, customers are reporting suspicious phone calls that appear to be from Dell employees in India, but these callers attempt to extort money to fix computer issues. It’s starting to look like someone…

DELL’S $999 XPS 12 IS A 2-IN-1 WITH NO SURFACE ASPIRATIONS

We expected a Surface clone, but the XPS 12 bucks the trend while still fitting a lot of amenities and upgrades. The leaks were wrong: Dell's new $999 XPS 12 is not, I repeat, not joining the parade of Surface clones we've seen lately. Instead, it's offering a fairly conventional 2-in-1. That’s not to dismiss what Dell has done with the XPS 12. The 12.5-inch IPS screen comes in resolutions of 1920x1080 to UltraHD 4K. That 4K panel offers a…

Dell joins the cheap Windows tablet scrum, launches the Venue 8 Pro 3000 series

Dell is late to the cheap Windows tablet scene, and the $200 starting price for its Venue 8 Pro 3000 series is much higher than that of some competitors, but Dell’s offering boasts some superior specs. For starters, the Venue 8 Pro has an 8-inch IPS display with 1280x800 resolution, and it packs 32GB of storage. Toshiba’s Encore Mini, for example, is street-priced at just $100, but it has a TN panel that’s limited to 1024x600 resolution and it comes with…
