Dell was busy at Computex 2019, announcing a number of cool new laptops designed for the office, gaming, and casual use. The company also took the wraps off a few other products including various accessories and all-in-one PCs. Here are the best and most interesting products you should know about.
Alienware m15 and m17
The Alienware m15 sports a 15.6-inch Full HD or 4K display, while its larger brother comes with a 17.3-inch Full HD panel. The rest of the specs and features are more or less the same between the two laptops. They are powered by the 9th generation of Intel Core processors (up to i9) and are available with either Nvidia GeForce GTX or RTX graphics. You also get up to 16GB of RAM and 2TB of SSD storage.
The Alienware m15 and m17 are gaming laptops, sporting a magnesium alloy chassis, a brand new keyboard with 1.7mm travel (up from 1.4mm), and Alienware’s Advanced Cryo-Tech 3.0 technology that provides increased airflow and thermal efficiency to keep the laptops running cool under load. The AlienFX customizable lighting is also available, allowing you to change the lighting color of the keyboard, power button, and more.
The Alienware m15 is the most powerful 15-inch laptop in the company’s lineup, while the m17 is the thinnest one in its class. Both are scheduled to hit the shelves on July 1, with pricing starting at $1,500.
Dell G3 15, G7 15, and G7 17
All three laptops are designed with gamers in mind. The Dell G3 15 is the least powerful of the pack, but it still offers plenty of punch thanks to the 9th generation of Intel Core processors (up to i7), the Nvidia GeForce GTX 16-series graphics cards, and 16GB of RAM. The display comes in at 15.6 inches and offers Full HD resolution.
The laptop comes with the Game Shift feature for increased performance.
The laptop comes with Game Shift, a feature that maximizes the fans’ speed to keep your system cool so that the processor can work harder for short periods of intense gaming. You can also get it with a WASD 4-zone RGB backlit keyboard that you can customizable to your liking. The Dell G3 15 goes on sale today starting at $800.
If you want a little more power, you’ll have to go with either the Dell G7 15 or G7 17. They are more or less the same machines, with the display being the biggest difference between them. The G7 15 sports a 15.6-inch Full HD or 4K display, while its larger brother features a 17.3-inch panel that’s only available with Full HD resolution. They are powered by the 9th generation of Intel Core processors (up to i9) and pack Nvidia GeForce GTX or RTX graphics under the hood along with up to 16GB of RAM.
Both are also available with an optional WASD 4-zone RGB backlit keyboard, just like the Dell G3 15. Unfortunately, the release date and pricing have not been announced yet — we’ll update this post as soon as they are.
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 and XPS 15
Dell announced two products under its XPS lineup at Computex 2019. The first one is the XPS 13 2-in-1, which impresses with its eye-catching design and compact size. It features a 13.3-inch display with Full HD+ or Ultra HD+ resolution and is powered by the 10th generation of Intel Core processors (up to i7). It runs Windows 10 and comes with as much as 32GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage.
The XPS 13 2-in-1 sports the smallest camera Dell has ever put into a laptop at just 2.25mm and promises up to 16 hours of battery life, which makes it a great option for road warriors. The entry-level model will set you back a $1,000, but there’s no word on when you’ll be able to buy it.
If you want more screen real estate, the XPS 15 is a better option for you with its 15.6-inch display offering Full HD or 4K resolution. An OLED panel is optional, which is a first for the XPS series. The laptop also packs more power under the hood, as you can get it with up to Intel Core i9 processor (9th generation), GeForce GTX 1650 graphics, and 32GB of RAM.
It has the same super small camera above the display and a large battery that should last up to 20.5 hours, according to Dell. The XPS 15 is already available, with pricing starting at $1,000 or $1,900 if you want the version with an OLED display.
Dell Inspiron laptops
At Computex 2019, we saw five laptops from Dell’s Inspiron series. Three of them are 2-in-1 devices: Inspiron 11 3000, Inspiron 13 7000, and Inspiron 15 7000. The last one is the most interesting of the three, sporting a 15.6-inch UHD display, packing the 9th generation of Intel’s Core processors under the hood (up to i9), and offering as much as 16GB of RAM. The laptop has an innovative design that allows you to store a full-size Active pen right in the hinge. It also sports a fingerprint scanner that’s embedded in the power button and comes with an optional Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics card. It starts at $1,500.
The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 can be yours for just $300.
The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 is more or less the same laptop, with the exception of having a smaller display, and smaller battery, and only being available with integrated graphics. It’s also cheaper with its starting price tag of $1,350. The Inspiron 11 3000, on the other hand, is an entry-level device with an 11.6-inch HD display, the 7th generation of AMD A9 processors, and up to 8GB of RAM. It starts at $350 and will be available from June 10. The other two laptops are already available.
The next two laptops announced at the show in Taiwan are the Inspiron 15 7000 and Inspiron 13 5000. The former is the most interesting one, offering a 15.6-inch Full HD or 4K display and comes with the Intel Core i9 processor (9th generation) along with as much as 16GB of RAM. It features a magnesium alloy body, a fingerprint scanner, and a full-size number pad. Pricing starts at $1,000. If that’s too rich for your blood, the Inspiron 13 500 might be more up your alley, costing just $580. But it comes with a smaller 13.3-inch Full HD display and less power under the hood — up to Intel Core i7 (8th generation) and Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU.
Dell Precision mobile workstation
We saw three Dell Precision laptops at the event in Taiwan, all of which are aimed at business users. The Precision 7540 and 7740 sport 15.6- and 17.3-inch displays, offering up to 4K resolution. As far as specs go, there are so many available configurations to choose from it’s hard to describe them all. You can get both laptops with up to 9th generation Intel Core i9 and Xeon 8-core processors, and Radeon Pro or Nvidia Quadro RTX professional graphics. Both go on sale in early July starting at $1,410 (7740) and $1,150 (7540).
The Dell Precision 5540 is a very powerful laptop as well and can also be yours with up to 9th generation Intel Core i9 or Xeon 8-core processors. The display comes in at 15.6 inches, offering either Full HD or Ultra HD resolution. When it comes to graphics, you can get it with the Nvidia Quadro T1000 and T2000 GPU. There’s a bunch of memory configurations available, although not as much as with the other models. The laptop will hit the shelves in early July starting at $1,340.
These are the most interesting laptops Dell announced at Computex 2019, although we saw plenty of other great products from the company at the show as well. These include the Inspiron 24 5000 and 27 7000 all-in-one PCs, the Alienware 7.1 gaming headset, and a couple of Vostro laptops including the 13 5000 and the 15 7000, both of which were announced prior to Computex and shown off at the event.
