PC Does What Microsoft Commercials

Microsoft does what?

Microsoft does what?

Back in the day when Apple was trying to reaffirm itself in the computer business and convince buyers that Macs were better than PCs, the company came up with a slew of Mac vs. PC ads that were just hilarious. But times have changed, Apple dropped the campaign, and the current computer business looks nothing like the one from last decade. Smartphones are dominant in this “post-PC” era, and laptop and desktop makers are struggling against a marked demand decrease – interestingly, the Mac is now doing a lot better than PCs in terms of profitability.

So Microsoft does whaaaaat? More →

Dell XPS 13 Review: Better Than the MacBook Air

“I’ll give you my Mac when you pry it from my cold, dead hands” — might be the mantra of most Mac users. I can say that the new Dell XPS 13 is good enough to pry a MacBook from my — albeit animate — hands. I’ve been using the redesigned 2015 XPS 13 for the last several months and it was surprisingly easy to relegate my MacBook to backup status.

Here’s why: More →

A CES 2015 miracle: Dell made something that looks really cool

As Dell’s long history of consumer electronics flops shows, it’s never really had a reputation for cutting-edge design. That said, it looks like going private has given the company more time to refine its game and it’s just unveiled a really nice-looking ultrabook at CES 2015. More →

Video: Dell’s plan to sell Windows 8 PCs: Pretend they run OS X

It’s safe to say that Dell’s marketing team won’t be getting any special “thank you” cards from Microsoft this year. The Verge has spotted a new ad for Dell’s new Dell XPS 15 laptop that seemingly dual boots Windows 8 and OS X. Of course, the computer only runs Windows 8 and it looks like the advertising agency took a little too much creative license with the way it decided to show off its best features. The most comical part comes when the woman in the video swipes Windows 8’s Metro interface from the right-hand side of the screen and it immediately switches to OS X. The full video is posted below.

Dell’s $130 dongle turns any screen into a full-featured Android PC

While we wait patiently for the rise of the Android-powered TV, Dell has taken the initiative and released a portable HDMI dongle that can turn any screen with an HDMI or MHL port into an Android PC, complete with access to the cloud. The Wyse Cloud Connect clearly draws some inspiration from Google’s Chromecast, but based on the press release, Dell is targeting a more business-minded audience with its device. More →

Want a new PC but hate Windows 8? Here’s where you can go to find Windows 7 machines

Want a new PC but hate Windows 8? Here’s where you can go to find Windows 7 machines

A big fuss was made over HP’s recent declaration that Windows 7 computers were “back by popular demand.” Why? Because Windows 8’s reception has been beyond disappointing to PC makers and industry watchers alike. HP moving back to Windows 7 would be yet another sign that computer buyers want nothing to do with Windows 8 but according to ZDNet’s Ed Bott, the entire ordeal was “manufactured.” More →
