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.

The reason we'd call it a "tablet" is because you can, indeed, rest it on your lap and tap away with it as you would any other tablet-like device, but it's certainly not supposed to be considered just that. Instead we're running full Windows 8 and have a bevy of options when it comes to usage of this beast - enter the All-in-one multi-mode Dell XPS 18 from a desktop perspective.

Alienware has a new gaming notebook range, the result of three years of development, and the Alienware 14 may well be our favorite. "Significantly evolved" from the already eye-catching design of the old model, the new Alienware 14 - the "M14x" nomenclature has been retired, Alienware GM Frank Azor says, since nobody outside of the company knew what it stood for - wraps Intel's latest 4th-gen Core i7 Haswell processors in a new magnesium alloy and anodized aluminum chassis, with Tron-esque AlienFX lighting and no shortage of grunt.
