Dell unveils tiny eco-computer concept

Dell unveils tiny eco-computer concept
This strange bamboo-encased eco-PC concept was unveiled at Fortune’s Brainstorm Green conference today. They’re saying it’s Dell’s smallest-ever computer. For comparison, it’s 81 percent smaller than a standard desktop and more importantly it uses 70 percent less power.

No info yet on what’s inside or an official name for that matter, but according to Dell the machine is scheduled to be released later this year, with a price between $500 and $700. I suppose if anyone can make people buy bamboo computers, it’s dell. Maybe they can bring the Dell dude back and instead of saying, “Dude I’m getting a Dell”, maybe he can say, “Dude, I’m getting wood”.

Dell’s aluminum laptops shocking users?

Dell’s aluminum laptops shocking users?
Over at CNET, they were surprised to discover that using some Dell laptops can get you an electric shock. And they weren’t the only ones. Dell’s forums are littered with user complaints about the same experiences. The shocks reportedly “vary in strength from a gentle tingle to a sudden jolt.” They noticed that the shocks happened when connecting peripherals to the laptops. Apparently they have figured out which ones are the problem devices: The versions that feature a brushed-aluminum finish. Those would be the XPS M1330 and XPS M1530.

The shocks seem to be the result of a power adapter that isn’t grounded properly, the 2-prong connector lacking a third pin. It turns out that Dell’s knowledge base actually acknowledges the problem in an entry titled “A Tingling Sensation May Be Noticed When Touching Metal Components of Dell Devices Equipped with Two-Prong AC Adapters.” The entry also states that “the voltage (tingling sensation) does NOT present any risk of injury to the user.” Somehow, I think we all know that tingling sensations from electricity can never be good.

Dell launches its first Tablet PC – the Latitude XT

Posted in Dell,Tablet PC by Darrin Olson on December 11th, 2007

Dell Latitude XT Tablet PCDell today has finally introduced its first Tablet PC, announcing what looks like a very smooth looking convertible tablet called the Latitude XT. Although tablet PCs have been around for a while Dell has managed to add some pretty cool specs to this new model which make it stand out from the crowd, but unfortunately price is not one of them.

The touch capability is probably the most impressive part of the latest Latitude. Dell has some experience with touch screen computers through the XPS One they launched in November, and Dell boasts the XT as having “ground breaking” capacitive touch technology. The capacitive touch on the tablet’s display allows users to interact with the tablet and indicate input without requiring any pressure from a finger on the screen; only a very light touch. The hardware for the touch screen is also ready to support multi-touch in the future, much like you would see currently on the iPhone.
