Not only has Dell released a new XPS 15 with the border-less Infinity display, the much loved XPS 13 has been given a new set of internals.
The new Dell XPS 15 brings the 13’s sleek design, including the borderless infinity display, to the larger laptop. Thanks to tiny bezels, it’s actually the smallest 15” laptop on the planet (which is important clarify for any people travelling offworld – thanks Dell). It’s got an Ultrasharp 4K 3840 x 2160 touchscreen, though it’s also available with a standard 1080P, non touch screen. The laptop has a range of 6th Gen Intel CPUs, from i3s up to a Quad Core i7 and 16GB of 2133 MHz RAM. If you opt for the 1080P screen and the 84 WHr battery, the XPS 15 promises up to 17 hours of battery life. The new Dell XPS 13 looks a lot like the old one, just has some new features under the hood. The new XPS 13 starts from $1799 (or $1999 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD), though the top spec i7 model will cost $2499. Rather than a flipping screen like before, the XPS 12 has a funky attachment to its keyboard that does use a latch or a hinge.
Actually you are wrong, if you take into account our weak dollar, GST and add in the typical state sales tax in the US of 8% the prices are no worse than in the US, in fact it's slightly cheaper to buy them here than import them. On one of the the lower spec XPS 13 models, it's actually over $200 more expensive here, before tax.
The low spec XPS 15 (yet to be on the Dell Au site) is similar and is $237 more expensive here, before tax. The high end XPS 15 (the only one actually for sale here atm) is $1999.99 US or, $2755 Autralian.
I would not be surprised to see those numbers change as more models are added, but right now, the top spec XPS 15 is great value here compared to the US.
Unfortunately, after recently talking with a Dell Australia Sales Representative via their site's chat feature, I was informed that the current XPS 15 configuration listed on their website (4k screen, 256gb SSD) will be the only option sold in Australia, with no intention of providing customisation options to retail purchasers. If anyone at Gizmodo has information regarding their source for the above article, it would be great to know whether customisation options such as the 1080p screen and 1TB SSD can be requested through any medium other than the Dell's online order form.
The lower spec will be 15.6 FHD (1920x1080) infinity display, with a i5 quad core, 8 GB RAM and 1TB HDD + 32GB SSD.
Earlier this week The Information reported that Apple is making a smart hub to compete with the very cool Amazon Echo and recently announced Google Home. One of the most unique computers unveiled at this year's Computex is the Asus Transformer Book Trio. The trusty old laptop is being kicked to the curb, with PC makers trying to spice up their offerings by pushing a variety of hybrids, tablets and smaller-screen devices at the Computex trade show in Taipei this week.


Asustek Computer, Acer and Dell have all introduced tablets and markedly different laptop designs in an effort to revive their flagging fortunes.
Some of the thin-and-light laptops have detachable screens, or displays that can slide or rotate. PC shipments have been in a terrible slump, thanks partly to the surging popularity of tablets, and PC makers are trying to adapt to the new reality. Some are inspired by tablets and emphasize touch and long battery life, though vendors insist they also come with PC-like performance. Also on display here was Acera€™s 8-inch Iconia W3, the first small-screen Windows 8 tablet. Design and screen size matter, but functionality, portability and long battery life are more important, according to Kirk Schell, vice president of computing products at Dell. The PC industry wona€™t stand still, either, and Intel is looking to add more features and functionality, such as facial-recognition log-in, voice controls and 3D cameras.
Thata€™s not to say people dona€™t want pure tabletsa€”and not ones running Intel chips, either. Still, Intel believes tablets in their current form remain secondary devices, for content consumption rather than creation. Amazon Shop buttons are programmatically attached to all reviews, regardless of products' final review scores. PCWorld helps you navigate the PC ecosystem to find the products you want and the advice you need to get the job done.
There is also a funky new 2 in 1 convertible – an updated (and quite different) XPS 12. Dell had been holding out for the new Intel 6th Gen Skylake CPUs, but the wait was worth it.
Which is true, considering the Microsoft Surface Book is a slightly sub 4K resolution at 3000 x 2000. If Microsoft can price their new laptop and Surface Pro 4 fairly for Australians compared to the US, why can't Dell?
There's nails and potholes waiting to destroy your tyres, cars waiting to smoosh you and thieves waiting to steal your bike as soon as your back is turned. Many of the products use Intela€™s Atom chip or next-generation Core processor, called Haswell, which was also launched here. Therea€™s also an uptick in the number of products being offered with Googlea€™s Android OS, as Windows 8 struggles to find its feet on touch-screen devices. Many are replacing old-school laptopsa€”which Intel executives refer to as a€?fatbooksa€?a€”with new styles that can be adapted for different uses. And while Taiwana€™s manufacturers are all taking about reinventing the PC, many of them cana€™t resist the urge to throw in a keyboard.


Perhaps most intriguing was its Transformer Book Trio, a dual-OS device that Chairman Jonney Shih described as a laptop, tablet and desktop all rolled into one. Until now, Windows tablets have come with 10-inch or larger screens, and Acer is reacting to a trend towards smaller devices driven by Amazona€™s Kindle Fire and Googlea€™s Nexus 7. The 11.6-inch Gorilla Glass screen can be folded back through 360 degrees so that the XPS 11 turns into a tablet. The market that was once comprised of generic desktops and laptops is now made up of all-in-one PCs and hybrid laptops that can double as tablets. Perhaps the product that caused the greatest stir at Asusa€™s press conference was its Memo Pad FHD7. And through its new Haswell chips, Intel says its partners will offer full-powered laptopsa€”and tabletsa€”that can be used for editing video and other demanding tasks. Our parent company, IDG, receives advertisement revenue for shopping activity generated by the links. How that works in practice remains to be seen, but we will have to wait for a hands on to see how good it is. It seems to be a great pity that the potential of the XPS 15- one of the few windows based machines to have a reasonable chance of competing against the MacBook on aesthetics and performance- would be hindered by such limited choice. Consumer technology companies' new favourite thing is to get their remarkably well-designed talons into every aspect of our lives.
The last problem is so pernicious it keeps a lot of people from riding, and those that do opt to ride $100 junkcycles.
But the keyboard, which has its own Core i7 processor, can function independently as a Windows 8 desktop when connected to a wireless display. The Iconia W3 weighs 540 gramsa€”heavier than Applea€™s iPad mini and the Nexus 7a€”and is expected to be priced between $400 and $500.
The keyboard fits snugly into the chassis, so that unlike the Yoga ita€™s less apparent when the device is used in tablet mode. It wasna€™t the tableta€™s Android OS or ARM-based processor that wooed the crowd, but the price tag, which starts at just $129.
Because the buttons are attached programmatically, they should not be interpreted as editorial endorsements. If we want the convenience they promise then we have to sell a little bit of our digital soul.
That way they don't lose any sleep when they come out after a night of drinking and find a chain dangling from the stand where their bike used to be.
