Founded back in 1984 in Austin, Texas, Dell quickly grown to become one of the largest companies creating computers and electronics for commercial use. It provides a long arrangement of products at various price points so that, literally speaking, anyone can find the one device suiting their needs.
The following article is going to include some specific dell computers, each one designed specifically for a different main use. Without further ado let’s jump right into it.
Dell really understands that not everybody is a “hardcore gamer” and this is why they still haven’t jumped on the mainstream train such as Asus and various other big competitors of theirs.
They have created a whole other subsidiary designed specifically for gamers and this is none other than the known worldwide, Alienware. So to kick things off on an exciting notice let’s take a look at Alienware Aurora.
Starting at $799 and going all the way up to more than two thousand dollars, the Aurora is a nice mid-sized tower designed for one thing only. Gaming!
Having personally spent a LOT of time with a particular model, a photo of which is visible on your screens, I wanted to share my opinion. Starting off with the hardware you get:
CPU: Intel i7-8700
A processor that can handle both hardcore gaming while at the same moment featuring enough power to sufficiently help you edit or even record your own games at a steady +60 fps without the slightest frame drop.
GPU: GTX 1070
Remember how the GTX 960 used to be the best option for an entry-mid gaming desktop. Well, that has been replaced by the 1060 and its bigger brother is none other than the GTX 1070 which features a bit less than double the CUDA cores of the GTX1060.
The first has 1280 (for the 6Gb version) while the GTX 1070 has 1920. This graphics card can handle any game at a Full HD resolution with the highest graphics preset at a steady +60 fps. It can be used even for 1440p gaming!
RAM: 16GB DDR4 + 256GB SSD + 2TB HDD
Sixteen gigabytes of ram is something like the new standard for pc gaming. Pair this up with an SSD big enough to support your OS and favorite games and your loading times will be extremely small.
So after going through the specs (the important ones) let me tell you how well the actual performance of this beast of a pc really is.
Playing the popular FPS game Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) at Full HD and the ultra graphics option I had a steady +70 FPS at all times. Fortnite at the same resolution and the epic graphics option was constantly at more than 100 FPS.
Various MMO games such as League of Legends, DOTA 2, Hearthstone etc. were higher than 150 FPS.
But this is just an example. The whole Aurora series can be customized to suit your needs to the fullest.
Opposite to the Aurora, the Inspiron series is one of those Dell computers designed mostly for the whole family regular use. Even the cheapest model can easily handle the basic tasks such as internet browsing and using Microsoft office as well as running image and video editing software fairly well without long loading periods.
On the other hand, you get a big hard disk drive that can easily fulfill all your storage needs. The integrated Intel UHD 630 graphics can run older games great but in order to play modern AAA titles, you’ll have to either get one of the pricier configurations or lower the graphics options a lot.
Still, for the price point, every configuration of the Inspiron desktop worths its money down to the last cent!
The name may suggest that this is a better and clearly newer version than the Inspiron Desktop series we talked about before. This, however, couldn’t be any further than the actual truth.
The New Inspiron features almost identical hardware options but there is one small different detail. The whole PC is packed into a 24-inch touchscreen. There are 4 different configurations but all of them are pretty much the same as the only substantial change being the processor. (
That being said, the biggest selling point of this series is how compact and useful such a device can be. It can be used as a daily driver, media player, even a small studio for an artist using software such as Photoshop or CorelDraw! Bringing Dell computers to a whole new level the “New” Inspiron will be the best choice for pretty much everyone except for hardcore gamers.
In case you haven’t heard Apple isn’t alone anymore. Dell made the bright move of creating a device similar to the MacBook in the sense that it is a portable workstation.
What if I told you they made it even better? Imagine amazing processing power paired up with extreme efficiency. Yes, the XPS 15 (as well as the XPS 13) can be used both as a tablet and a laptop.
The cheapest configurations are rocking an 8th generation Intel i5 processor and 8Gb of RAM while the pricier version comes with i7 processors and up to 16Gb of ram. The most expensive one has an Ultra HD screen (4k resolution) which I saw at an event and let me tell you one thing. It was gorgeous!
I, just like you, am the average consumer (ok, maybe I spend a bit more than most people) and I know how hard it can be to find the best gaming laptop at the “right” price. This is exactly what Dell decided to go with and succeeded in doing so.
The G7 gaming laptop starts at around $900 and goes up to about $1300 (depending on the seller). The base model features a powerful 8th generation Intel i5 processor, a GTX 1050, and 8Gb of RAM. For a bit more, however, you can get a GTX 1050 Ti or even a GTX 1060 and we are talking about the 6Gb graphics card model here.
The top of the line features 16Gb of RAM and both an SSD (128Gb) and an HDD (1Tb). If Dell computers didn’t manage to surprise you then this option is enough for you. A compact gaming rig that can double as a powerful workstation and a media player. If that doesn’t make you happy I really don’t know what will.
Why don’t you answer this question yourself? Do you want a cheap but top-quality computer for the whole family, a gaming rig, a workstation? All of them while being compact enough for use on the move?
Seriously though, Dell computers can withstand a lot of heavy use and they are able to run for a lot of years after their purchase. I currently have an HP laptop as my main driver (for media player and writing use) which I am thinking of replacing for a G7 gaming laptop.
What do you think? Isn’t it the time to upgrade to a new device you won’t regret the purchase of? Personally speaking, I know I do and if you want my advice, you do too!
