Dell has today announced an all-in-one PC and two new 2-in-1 Inspiron notebooks that feature 360 degree swivelling displays to rotate between laptop, easel, tent and tablet modes. The new notebooks are designed for those who actively switch between working on the keyboard to hitting up some gaming on a tablet, perfect for performing multiple tasks usually carried out by separate products.

I often hear a lot of complaints from people I meet here in India about the Surface tablets and the Nokia Lumia 2520 not hitting our shores. We could either believe or argue the reasons offered by Microsoft and Nokia about the same, or look at all other options available in the market right now and make an informed purchase decision.

In a Microsoft event last week, I learned about twenty Windows 8.1 tablets from seven original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that are on the shelves at the moment or coming in a couple of weeks or so. In this post, let’s take a look at few of them.

The education space is a battle arena for business notebooks that want to prove they are durable enough to serve use by hundreds of kids and cheap enough to fit into the local school budget. While Dell and Lenovo are both shooting for first place, Dell still has the advantage of having more government contracts already signed off. To improve their existing lineup of machines, the company has announced the new “classroom-ready” Latitude 13 laptop.

When we first heard of Dell’s XPS 11 2in1 Ultrabook, it was a case of uncertain identity. A seemingly impossibly thin Windows 8 device made possible by including a touch sensitive keyboard in substitution for a standard mechanical one. Dell’s website told us it was an “Ultrabook”, but Dell Public Relations insisted it was a “tablet first”.

Whatever it may be, we sat down with it and we are quite impressed, but it all depends if you are looking for a tablet or a notebook.

When Dell’s Latitude 7000 series laptop showed up at our doorstep for review, there was one simple word that came immediately to mind – “Wow”. The new 7000 series machines from Dell are not only a new standard for Dell, but also a new standard for business machines all around. Read on as we take an in-depth look at the design, performance, and value of Dell’s latest creation.

The Latitude 7000 series we received for review is the 14-inch variation from the series, known as the E7440.  The machine is simply a black beauty once it is unwrapped from its eco-friendly packaging; well-modeled industrial design and choice building materials make the E7440 a laptop to admire.

The Confusion

If you head over to your local electronics shopping center, the blinking LEDs and flickering screens you witness from the lineup of computers on display, are most likely coming from what OEMs call “consumer machines”.

Since the birth of the personal computer, there have always been Consumer PCs and Business PCs; machines aimed at two separate markets that claim to be focused on what matters most for the particular individual. What truly makes a business machine what it is versus a consumer machine, and what is the state of each within today’s market?

Dell has launched the refreshed XPS 15 Windows 8 laptop in Australia. The laptop may look relatively similar, and so it should as it shares its looks with the Dell M3800. The new XPS 15 starts at $1,799 (AUD) and comes with a 1080p display and 8GB RAM. However, if you wish to go all out with the 3200x1800 QHD+ models, be prepared to part with at least $2,499. It's not a cheap investment.

Dell released the Latitude 6430u Ultrabook as a notebook as an affordable light and portable machine for the business professional. We have been quite happy with the new direction of design Dell has been headed in, but there is one problem – one of their laptops “smell of cat urine”.

According to reports from the BBC, “a number of users” have been complaining that some of their Latitude Ultrabooks “smell of cat urine”. While not a very appealing scent, Dell engineers have assured that the machines have not been biologically contaminated and there is no health hazard.

A little over a month ago, Dell surprised a few of us in the tech community by reviving the Venue branding for a product. It’s not a Windows Phone or Android smartphone, but instead a new family of tablets. There's the Dell Venue 8 Pro, an 8-inch tablet running Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 operating system. Dell now has full pricing and pre-orders up on their website. Details below.

Just in time for the holiday season, Dell has announced a few new additions to its line of PCs. Typically Inspiron has served as the company’s budget line of machines, but with these latest editions, Dell is going above and beyond to make budget seem premium for Windows 8.

The first introduction is a selection of new Inspiron 7000 series laptops. Typically, Inspiron units have been made from plastic, but not this time; this time, the 7000 series is made of “forged aluminum” and features “diamond-cut beveled edges”. According to Dell, the 14-inch model that measures in at .6 inches is 27% than its predecessor. The 15 inch and 17 inch models are just as impressive, coming in at .9 inches and 1.1 inches respectively (Remember, these are budget machines).

The deal was helped along with a $2 billion loan from Microsoft. Is anything changing for Dell?

Dell brings back the Venue, but not how you think

Nearly three years ago when Windows Phone 7 launched one handset stood out amongst them all. The Dell Venue Pro was a device with a keyboard slider, but in portrait orientation. It was truly unique and one of the most interesting Windows Phone devices of all time. Unfortunately, its greatness was marred by buggy Wi-Fi and other issues. Now Dell is reviving the Venue brand, but not how you think.
