Dell XPS 13 Ultraportable Review

Dell XPS 13 Ultraportable Review

Dell has a reputation, deserved or not, as being a reliable, economical and (not to put too fine a point on it) dull choice when it comes to PCs. There have been many attempts to change rectify this; the first in recent memory was coincidentally titled the XPS 13. Various incarnations of this machine and others like the Adamo line have again and again tried to break this perception, and while admirable efforts, they’ve fallen mostly on deaf ears. Enter the XPS 13 Ultrabook, which utilizes Intel’s vague set of standards to hopefully stand above the crowd.

Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 now have liquid cooling

Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 now have liquid cooling

Now this is "cool." Ugh, that was an awful pun. The Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 have just gotten a liquid cooling option added to their specs in place of the standard fan-cooling option.

The Asetek liquid cooling system provides for a more even cooling of the processor and makes overclocking a much more versatile possibility for users that really want to get the most out of their systems.

This cooling option also reduces the noise, as there's no loud fan noise to contend with. Since both of these computers include the Intel Core 2 Extreme and are unlocked, making speed boosts much easier, having a stronger cooling option just makes sense. To add the Asetek liquid cooling option, it will cost you nearly $120 extra on top of the $899 and $1,099 priced XPS 625 and XPS 630 gaming towers. The new option will be available by the end of the month....

The Dell Vostro line of notebooks and desktops were targeted at small business users, as such they’ve collected the feedback from some of their Vostro customers and made some changes. First they thinned up all of the models, it was at the cost of a bit of ruggedness, but now the notebooks are a lot thinner.

Then they added some little features that make a big difference including adopting the touch sensitive LED backlit keys of some of the XPS systems. The notebooks are now noticeable thinner and lighter and have some other features that road warriors are likely to appreciate, but they still maintain the same low price and they come crap-ware free.
