Dell has just introduced the first 4K Ultra HD Display in a 2-in-1. The Dell XPS 12 has a unique design with a magnetic connection for transitioning from laptop to tablet. The mobility base provides a full-size backlit keyboard and precision touchpad for working on-the-go. We got to play with it for a few minutes, so check out our hands-on video!
Dell just brought its virtually borderless InfinityEdge display to a 15-inch laptop, making the Dell XPS 15 the smallest 15-inch laptop on the planet. They've been able to squeeze a 15.6-inch display into a form closer to the size of a 14-inch laptop. That's not the only trick up its sleeve. We got to play with XPS 15 for a few minutes, so watch our hands-on video!
The smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet gets some updates for late 2015. The Dell XPS 13 now has 6th generation Intel Core processors and graphics, more storage and memory, and Thunderbolt 3. Don't worry… it still has the InfinityEdge display. We got to play with it for a few minutes, so check out our hands-on video.
We've been waiting on this one since we first saw it back at Computex in the summer. The all new Dell XPS 15 is now official and it's available starting today!
As we already knew from our first look back in Taipei, Dell did to the XPS 15 exactly what we hoped it would. It took the XPS 13 and made it a little bit bigger. So now what we have is a top of the line 15-inch Ultrabook in the form factor of a 14-inch. And it's beautiful.
Dell has announced a refresh of its 2015 model XPS 13 Ultrabook that keeps everything we already love about it, and peps it up with some beefier spec options that will see it into 2016.
The XPS 13 launched initially back in January at CES where the near bezel-less Infinity Display took our breath away. Visually, this latest model remains the same, so the Infinity Display remains as does the 13-inch size in an 11-inch form factor. The big changes are inside.
There's no doubt that there's a lot of conflicting information flying around about the new Lumia 950 and 950 XL and their reported AT&T exclusivity. Now T-Mobile CEO John Legere has taken to Twitter to note that the carrier is definitely open to carrying and selling the new Lumia duo if Microsoft approaches them.
Go large with the Surface Book, recently unveiled at Microsoft's #Windows10Devices event in NYC. The Surface Book puts a 13.5" 2-in-1 laptop into the expanding Surface line-up, and we now have the full rundown on its specs, design and availability.
Rumors of larger-screened Surface devices, well, surfaced a few weeks ago. The final product turned out to be a little more jaw-dropping than expected, though, due to its bold design and monstrous specs.
Microsoft took the wraps off of the all-new Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book just yesterday, with pre-orders going up direct from Microsoft almost immediately. If you'd rather put your order in through Amazon, however, you can now do so, with the retailer offering several configurations of each device, fulfilled by Microsoft.
Sporting a 5.7-inch screen, it is hard not to compare the new Microsoft Lumia 950XL to the Lumia 1520. The Lumia 1520 turned heads with its 6-inch screen and a zippy processor. We expect the 950XL to have just as much success as the Lumia 1520, but is it worth the upgrade? We compared the specifications of these two large screen Windows Phones to help possibly answer that question.
Every week, Bing uses search, social, and other relevant data to make intelligent predictions about upcoming NFL games. Last week, Bing correctly predicted the outcome of 11 out of the NFL's 16 games. Week 4 just passed. How did Bing perform? Let's take a look.
Microsoft has their new Surface Pro 4 tablet, and it's a hell of a machine. Packing the latest in computing hardware with a design that further refines the best parts of the Surface line, it's a lesson in mobile computing with minimal compromises. Apple has their own take on the large tablet with a keyboard cover, the iPad Pro, but in many ways Microsoft's latest tablet is still ahead of the game.
The just-announced Surface Pro 4 tablet will use a liquid cooling system inside, and now an image and more information about that system has been revealed. The same kind of system will be used inside the Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones as well.
The information, along with a diagram of the system, was posted by Sean Org, who is a Senior Engineer at EMI Consulting and a major fan of Microsoft's Surface devices:
"The SP3 had all the heat concentrated in one spot (that hot spot in the corner). The SP4 actually boils/evaporates liquid inside a metal tube that touches the processor, and that vapor travels to two places inside the SP4 to condense back into a liquid: one to the fan, and the other under where the kickstand normally rests. The one under the kickstand allows the fan to rarely run, unless under extremely demanding tasks. So for web browsing, and normal day-to-day activities, you'll no longer have the fan run as you did in the Surface Pro 3. And when the surface is under pressure with the fan running, the heat will be more evenly distributed - not all concentrated in a big hot spot - making the SP4 feel a bit cooler."
The legions of Halo fans can rest easy as the latest game in the first-person shooter series, Halo 5: Guardians, is on its way. Microsoft and developer 343 Industries have announced that the game has gone gold, meaning the Xbox One shooter is now being replicated on discs for its release to stores on October 27.
