Microsoft pits Acer Iconia W3 against iPad mini in latest Windows fight

Microsoft has taken on Apple's iPad mini in its latest head-to-head commercial, pitting the 7.9-inch iOS tablet against Acer's Iconia W3 and, unsurprisingly since it's all being paid with Microsoft's dime, finding the Windows 8 slate to be the winner. The advert, which follows June's battle between the iPad 4 and Dell's XPS 10, runs through some of the things you can do on Windows 8 that you can't on the iPad mini.

Dell Project Ophelia aims for Chromecast market with Android HDMI stick

Hold both Dell's Project Ophelia and Google's Chromecast in one hand and you might think they're made for the same purpose. Both of them connect with full-sized HDMI, both work with Google's software inside, and both are being delivered inside 2013. This dell device isn't just made for video, though, and we've seen it before - this week it's being delivered to product testers on its way to its final hardware iteration.

Dell smartwatch hinted as company invests in wearable R&D

Dell smartwatch hinted as company invests in wearable R&D

Dell is "exploring" wearables designs, with hints that a Dell smartwatch could be in the pipeline as the company again tries to tackle the competitive mobile market. "Looking ahead five years, we expect devices and form factors to continue to change" Dell global VP of personal computing, Sam Burd, told The Guardian, echoing recent research which suggested desktop sales would continue to pale while ultrabooks, tablets, smartphones, and other form-factors rose in prominence. "There's a lot of discussion about how that fits into wearable devices like we've seen with Google Glass and watches."

Dell XPS 18 hands-on: 18-inch tablet? Portable all-in-one PC? Delusional?

You have to give the PC OEMs some credit: they're really milking the touch potential of Windows 8, and hulking great "home tablets" seem to be the finger-fetish of the moment. Latest to join the trend is Dell with the XPS 18, an 18.4-inch slab of dockable multitouch, with the company would rather you think of as a portable all-in-one PC than as a tablet in the traditional sense. Intended to be toted round the home, rather than outside of it, the XPS 18 packs up to a Core i7 processor and a battery good for a surprising five hours of off-the-AC use. We caught up with Dell for an early play.

Dell XPS 10 and Kindle Fire are the most repairable tablets, Surface Pro and iPads come in last

Warranties have their place, but there's no shortage of techies who prefer to do their own device repair when something goes awry. Unfortunately, no matter how technically inclined you are, some devices seem built specifically to make the task as difficult as possible. The folks over at iFixit have released their Repairability Guide, which shows Dell's XPS 10 as the easiest to repair, and Microsoft's Surface Pro as the worst of the bunch.

Dell Deal: Business or Legacy?

Dell Deal: Business or Legacy?

The temptation to draw parallels between Michael Dell and Apple's Steve Jobs is a compelling one. Both founded technology companies that went on to great success; both left their position at the helm for some time, and then returned with great fanfare. However, Dell is not Jobs, and while the Apple CEO died leaving a vastly successful, hugely grown, and even fashionable company, Dell has struggled to do the same. Now, with Dell - along with a little financial help from some friends - wrenching back control of his eponymous company, the question remains: how much is righting the Dell ship with good business strategy, and how much is preserving the legacy of the business he gave his name.
