Dell Inspiron One 2330 all-in-one PC

Dell’s all-in-one PC line-up has matured significantly in the last few years. Look at the Studio One 19 from 2009, and compare it to 2012’s XPS One 27, and you’ll see how much has changed.

Dell XPS 8500 desktop PC

Many years ago, if you were to buy a Dell XPS desktop PC, you'd get something that was behemoth-like in its structure, and one of the first things you wanted to do was open it up to see all the beautiful little bits that made it go so fast. These days, Dell has Alienware PCs with which it dazzles the crowds and its XPS series of PCs has become a much less distinctive offering.

Dell Vostro 3560 notebook

With Ultrabooks taking all the glory in the notebook market these days, a 15.6in model like the Dell Vostro 3560 isn't something that will capture the imagination. In its standard form, it's a utilitarian beast with a thick base, a big screen and a strong build, and it's designed primarily for business users who want something fast, well featured, yet mobile.

Dell XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook

If your dream has always been to own a laptop that can easily be converted into a top-notch, no-compromise slate device, then Dell's XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook will make it come true.

Dell Latitude 10 Windows 8 tablet (preview)

The Dell Latitude 10 is a 10.1-inch Windows 8-based tablet that's scheduled for release next month -- at about the same time as the operating system itself. It's a business-oriented tablet that's designed to appeal to IT managers who are wanting to roll out secure slate devices to their users, as well as to those very users who will end up operating the device on a daily basis. And it does look and feel very desirable.

Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 Ivy Bridge notebook review (2012 model)

Dell's 2012 model Inspiron 15R notebook, the 5520, is an all-purpose model for serious work and multimedia pursuits, and it can even be used for gaming. It features a third generation Intel Core i7 CPU at the helm, and it has impressive features such as discrete graphics processing and a Full HD screen. However, it also has a few shortcomings, particularly when it comes to networking.

Dell XPS 14 (L421X) Ultrabook review

With the Dell XPS 14, you get an Ultrabook that includes discrete graphics, a third generation Intel Core i7 CPU, and up to half a terabyte of storage, with SSD acceleration on the side. It's designed for users who want as much grunt as they can get from a relatively thin and light computer, and it can even be used for a little bit of gaming in addition to media encoding tasks and typical office work. However, it's not a perfect Ultrabook; ours was affected by a couple of problems that made the notebook annoying to use during our review period.

Dell XPS One 27 (2710) all-in-one PC review

Dell's XPS One 27 (2710) is one of the most elegant and interesting all-in-one PCs we've seen in a while. It's not one of those fancy touchscreen-enabled PCs that can leave you wondering what to do with it; instead, it's a 27in screen with a stack of goodies packed inside its relatively thin profile, including a third generation Intel Core i7 CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M graphics adapter.

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook

Dell's XPS 13 (L321X) Ultrabook is a slim, 13in unit that received unanimous praise for its design from all who saw it while I was reviewing it. That does not happen often.

Dell XPS 14z (P24G) notebook

The Dell XPS 14z offers a fantastic mix of performance, mobility and strong build quality for a reasonable cost. It's a laptop that's been designed with home users and students in mind, but business users may also want to check it out. At 14 inches, it's a slightly smaller model than the XPS 15z that we reviewed back in June. It sports a different layout to that model, but the keyboard is practically the same, albeit scaled down, and while it's a good notebook overall, it's still a notebook that feels somewhat uncomfortable to use.

Dell's Q3 profit slides 54 percent

Dell reported third-quarter profits on Thursday that were down 54 percent from this time last year, though the company said it was encouraged by a slight uptick in sales from the prior quarter.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
