redesigned XPS 13 9370 for 2018
     Tue, Mar 27 2018 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Before my time with the Dell XPS 9370, I wasn't expecting a whole lot of change from the previous version. From the outset, it just looked like a slightly new chassis design and shaving some thickness off by moving to all Type-C connectors. Instead, what I found were thoughtful design changes to the XPS 13, which enhanced user experience all while making the device thinner AND perform double-digit percentages better than the previous generation, a rare trifecta."

Here is all you need to know about the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ performance."

Area-51 Threadripper Edition
     Sun, Jan 14 2018 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we looked at Dell's Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition gaming desktop earlier this year, the machine was still technically in a pre-production state. Though we took you on a preliminary guided tour of the system, we felt it premature to look at it under our full-review lens. At that point we were still doing emergency alien brain transplants on it, after all, bringing the machine we had up to production silicon specs. Dell's Alienware team was still putting the finishing touches on system firmware and some new peripherals to accompany their latest gaming desktops. So, we are back here again today to revisit the Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition, in what can now be considered its final, retail-ready incarnation.

We did and the Area-51 Threadripper Edition just shrugged it all off; no sweat.
