Alienware M15x Gaming Notebook Review

Keeping the same revised look and feel as the recent 17-inch M17x version, the Alienware M15x is an imposing black slab of computing power that’s thicker and heavier than most 17-inch laptops.

Dell offers an 802.11n wireless networking adapter and a little extra RAM in exchange, but we can’t say we find those ...

Dell Inspiron Zino HD Review

We’ve been excited to review the Dell Inspiron Zino HD ever since we first saw it at a preview event last August. An affordable, flexible, small-scale desktop, the Inspiron Zino HD seemed like a more accessible version of Dell’s older Mac Mini-competitor, the Studio Hybrid. Shipping delays and the disappearance ...

Dell Studio One 19 (EO19-USE012CS) Review

The Dell Studio One 19 (EO19-USE012CS) ($999.99 list), which is available at Costco, is very similar to the Studio One 19 I looked at earlier this year. Like the previous iteration, this Studio One 19 is a smallish all in one PC with a 18.5-inch touch screen panel. It’s more ...
