Dell renews their powerhouse XPS 15 laptop with a stunning 4K display

60

Besides the super impressive XPS 13 Ultrabook announced today at CES, Dell also is refreshing their XPS 15. The XPS 15 is my primary laptop that I reviewed a few months ago and it is still one of the best on the market.

The 2015 version steps things up by replacing the QHD+ touchscreen with an ultra-high 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) display. Unfortunately, that is really about all that is new.

Folders Pro, Advanced File Manager is this week's myAppFree Deal

70

Folders Pro, Advanced File Manager is, as the title suggests, is a Windows Phone file manager. It is a feature riddled Windows Phone app that features password protected files and the ability to move, copy, paste, rename or delete folders or files on your Windows Phone. It will not tap into system files but instead give you one-stop access to all your media and document folders.

Folders Pro normally runs $1.49 but through the myAppFree deal, you can pick up the app for free. The deal will only last 24 hours so if you've been in the market for a file manager app for your Windows Phone, now might be the time to take the plunge.

Dell blows us away with their near bezel-less XPS 13 Ultrabook

142

When it comes to Ultrabooks and laptops these days, the competition is stiff, even more so with the advent of the Broadwell series from Intel. Today, Dell stole the show with their refresh of the XPS 13 laptop, which is now available for purchase.

The XPS series is a high-end Dell laptop and desktop computer line and the XPS 13 has always been one of the best in the Ultrabook category (we have one here at Windows Central, along with our XPS 15). Dell though has partnered with Sharp for an exclusive, near bezel-less display in an outstanding design.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires gets preorder bonus, new footage and details

13

Yesterday I named Warriors Orochi 3 as one of my favorite Xbox One games of 2014. Warriors Orochi is a spin-off of the Dynasty Warriors series. Xbox One is due to receive a genuine Dynasty Warriors game soon, the more strategy-focused Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires. The new game had been slated to launch at the end of January, but recently got pushed back to February 24.

To make up for the delay, publisher Koei Tecmo has just announced a preorder bonus. Preorder at GameStop or EB Canada to get an extra costume set for select characters and extra armor for all characters. A big part of the fun in these games is collecting and customizing hundreds of different characters, so the extra armor will help. We've also got new game details, screens, and the full game intro to share with you, so read on!

Quick look at the Samsung ATIV Book 9, the thinnest, lightest Ultrabook yet

76

Samsung may be playing second fiddle on Windows Phone these days, but they are still all in on the PC and laptop front. Last night, Samsung showed off their latest creation, the ATIV Book 9, which is a refresh of their continuing ATIV Book series (there is also a 'Pro' version).

The ATIV Book 9 is quite the looker with its all-aluminum, unibody design and its razor-thin 0.46-inch profile. The whole package weighs just 2.06 pounds, and it sports a 12.2-inch WQXGA (2560×1600) display that is a non-touch screen.

Hands on with the slick new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, available this month

38

Lenovo is in force here at CES 2015, showing off a wide array of new or refreshed products. Due to the wider availability of Intel's Core M and fifth generation Broadwell processors, Lenovo has been able to make their laptops even thinner with better battery life.

If we had to pick one laptop to highlight, the one that caught our attention it would be the X1 Carbon. The Carbon ThinkPad is not new per se, but this edition, which you can buy this month, sure is a head-turner. Described as a 'business Ultrabook' the X1 Carbon for 2015 looks to have great potential.
