Alienware Aurora R8 review: A pint-sized RTX 2080 Ti PC

Considering it has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and an Intel Core i9-9900K inside it, Alienware's Aurora R8 gaming desktop sure is diddly. Measuring 472mm tall, 212mm wide and just 360mm deep, this sleek, 28 litre chassis is noticeably smaller than the mid-tower case I've currently got shoved under my desk. It's so small, in fact, that it can sit on top of my…

Alienware AW2518H review: A great Nvidia G-Sync monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate

Ever since Nvidia announced they were opening up their G-Sync certification process to include a cut-down version of their variable refresh rate tech for AMD FreeSync screens at the beginning of the year, it's left proper, full-fat G-Sync gaming monitors such as Alienware's AW2518H in a slightly precarious position. After all, when G-Sync monitors often cost so much more than their FreeSync competition, why would…

Alienware m15 review: An inc-red-ible gaming laptop

The new Alienware m15 is quite possibly one of the loveliest gaming laptops I've ever tested. I'm a sucker for anything red (it's my favourite colour) but when you stick it on a chassis that stands just 21mm high off the ground and weighs a comparatively non-brick-like 2.16kg with a Core i7-8750H and a GTX 1070 inside it, you have my full and undivided attention.

CES 2019: Dell’s stuck a Core i9 desktop CPU in their new Alienware Area-51m laptop

While everyone else was busy adding Nvidia's new RTX graphics chips to their laptops at this year's CES, Dell's been busy with something else entirely for their new flagship Alienware Area-51m laptop. As well as being the first laptop to bear their new Alienware Legend design, it's also the world's first laptop to have a full-blown desktop Intel Core i9-9900K CPU crammed inside it. And…

Dell Inspiron G5 15 review: GTX 1060 power for less than a grand

Try looking for Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop series these days and you'll likely find they've been scrubbed from the internet. That's because they've now been replaced by Dell's new (and infinitely easier to parse) Inspiron G series, one of which I've got on test here today - the Inspiron G5 15. Now packing proper Intel 8th Gen [block id="637401" title="Intel Coffee Lake"] CPUs,…

Get £400 off the Alienware 17 laptop today, plus loads of other Dell deals this week

Back when I wrote about other bits of tech, July was always the month where everyone was desperate to show you what goodies they intended to stuff down your stocking come the end of the year. Christmas in July, they called it, and it was downright depressing. Now, however, it seems to be morphing into more of a Black Friday in July kind of deal, as we…

Alienware cut cords with their first wireless headset, plus a new mouse

It's been almost ten years since Alienware released their last headset, but now Dell's gaming division are diving back into the heady world of RGB lights, chunky microphones and oversized audio drivers with their very first wireless gaming headset, the appropriately named Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset. Or the AW988 for short. Oh, and they've also released a new mouse to go with it that has interchangeable side plates in case you…

Dell’s Alienware laptops get a boost thanks to Intel’s Core i9 Coffee Lake CPUs

Dell's Alienware aesthetic may not be to everyone's tastes, but there's no denying that their gaming laptops are seriously beefy bits of kit - especially the dinky Alienware 13 I reviewed earlier in the year. The larger Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 laptops, however, are about to get even more powerful, as Dell's just announced it's bringing Intel's souped up Core i9 [block id="637401" title="Intel…

Best of CES 2018: The top PC gizmos you’ll want to own this year

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is over for another year. It was a slightly weird show this year, marred by an embarrassing power outage, one too many pointless robots (Cloi, I'm looking at you) and the creeping feeling that the world's biggest tech show might just be becoming a bit irrelevant. Fortunately, PC gamers still have plenty to look forward to in 2018, from giganto gaming screens…

Dell Alienware 13 (Late 2017) review: A flawed gaming laptop I love to bits

There are two types of gaming laptop in this world. Those with gorgeous, so-good-I-want-to-lick-them OLED screens and those without. Happily, Dell's Alienware 13 is one of the former, and by god is it beautiful. If the paltry, washed-out screen on Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop was like a banged up Ford Fiesta from the mid 90s, the Alienware 13 is a modern day super…

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming (Late 2017) review: Now with added Thunderbolt 3

Gaming laptops are a funny old business. As we discovered with the frankly ludicrous MSI GT75VR Titan Pro, phenomenal cosmic graphics power you can (sort of) take on the move often comes with an equally planetary-sized price attached to it, making such laptops seem like indulgent extravagances compared to an identically-priced desktop. Even entry-level gaming laptops like Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming series demand at…

Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming review: cheapish portable power

My ongoing quest to find the perfect gaming laptop - at the conclusion of which I shall buy my favourite - continues. I should note at this point that 'perfect' can mean several different things in this case. Clearly, attractiveness, features and performance are the main draws, but this is by no means a money no object deal. If a decent lappie is cheap enough,…
