Dell launching smartphones in China by end of yearWhen you have several prototypes rejected by carriers here in America, it might be time to try China. And that’s just what Michael Dell is doing.

Taking apart the Dell Adamo

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2009

Taking apart the Dell AdamoiFixit and TechRepublic have teamed up to give us a peek at the innards of Dell’s new thin and light ultraportable Adamo. They wanted to see how it stacked up against Apple’s MacBook Air, so they compared build quality and specifics.

What did they find? Well, the Adamo features a 11.1 volt 40 Watt hour battery, compared to the Air’s 7.2 volt 37 Watt hour battery, and accounts for a greater percentage of the weight of the computer than the Air. The Adamo looks like it features a lot more technology in an only slightly heavier package.

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on April 9th, 2009

Dell XPS 625 and Dell intros XPS 625 gaming rigThe XPS 630 now have a liquid cooling option in place of the standard fan-cooling option. The Asetek liquid cooling system gives the system a more even cooling of the processor and makes overclocking more of a possibility for users that want to step things up a bit.

This cooling option will also reduce the overall noise, since there’s no fan noise. Both computers include the Intel Core 2 Extreme and are unlocked, making speed boosts easier, so you want a better cooling option.

However, the CPUs are also used inside super powerful workstation computers as well.

More recently, Dell has been letting shoppers customize not only the hardware inside the notebook or desktop, but has been offering custom colors and designs on the exterior of the computer as well.

Dell has announced new Inspiron desktop computers called the Inspiron slim and mini-tower.

Dell Mini 10 now available with 720p screen

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2009

Dell Mini 10 now available with 720p screenLooks like you can now configure Dell’s latest netbook with a 1366×768 screen, which is big enough to handle 720p. It will cost about $35 extra, so it’s a no-brainer. Assuming that wide frame around the screen doesn’t bother you on a 10 incher, at any rate.

And another factor is: How well does it handle 720p? From what we can gather, there’s a built-in TV tuner and a six-cell battery coming at some point, but nothing yet.

Dell Adamo battery not user-replaceable

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2009

Dell Adamo announcedWe have some disappointing news about the Dell Adamo. Turns out that the Adamo’s battery is not able to be replaced by the user. Just like another laptop you may know and love. The hell you say?

Well, it is replaceable, it just has to be sent into Dell for the procedure, thereby inconveniencing you and making them some more money.(We assume.) We don’t know how much the company is going to charge for that.

Dell whips out green 24-inch LCD

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on February 26th, 2009

Dell G2410 LCDOne of the biggest places that you can save on your power usage in your home or business is by cutting off devices like TVs and PC LCDs that draw power even when they aren’t being used. Dell has announced a new 14-inch LCD that has features for green power savings.

The display is called the G2410 24-inch Wide Green Flat Panel monitor. Typically, 24-inch LCDs have a resolution of 1920 x 1200, but dell cuts the G2410 back to 1920 x 1080, plenty for full 1080p movies and content. However, the gamer out there will be disappointed by the lack of full resolution.

Dell says large portion of Mini 9 netbooks are sold with Linux

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on February 24th, 2009

Dell Mini 9We have heard from several sources — including MSI — that return rates for netbook based on Linux are much higher than return rates on XP-based netbooks. MSI told Laptop Magazine that the Linux return rate on its netbooks was four times that of XP machines.

Dell is doing something that MSI must not be because Dell claims that a full 1/3 of its Mini 9 netbooks sold ship with Ubuntu Linux and the return rate is comparable to the return rate of XP-based Mini 9′s. Dell says that part of the reason for the comparatively low return rates on its Linux-based machines is that it does a very good job educating users on what Linux offers.
