Dell makes some great laptops whilst providing the best support on the market. The Texas based company also scores points for innovation and its extensive range. Dell offers something for everyone!
The XPS, Alienware and Precision machines are beasts within their high-spec sector. However, these beasts overshadow their business laptops namely the Inspirons and Latitudes.
- Premium Range: Dell's XPS lineup is the daddy in consumer and prosumer notebooks, owing to innovative features, gorgeous designs and super long battery life.
- Gaming Giant: Dell's Alienware is the leader of the pack when it comes to performance, features and bang for buck! This includes the Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming product ie. the new G-line.
- Personal Support: When you need support Dell delivers, with your own dedicated support tech who will be more than happy to offer their own direct email address to help resolve your problem.
- Boring Inspirons: Dell's mainstream consumer machines just aren't a match for HP or Lenovo. Whilst the Inspirons are relatively affordable, they are bland and offer average screens and keyboards.
- Laggard Latitudes: Not nearly as bad at the Inspirons, Dell's Latitude business laptops just aren't as pretty or innovative as its competition. However, if your business is wedded to Dell, you can find solace in the Precision workstations, specifically the Precision 5220 which more than carries its own weight.
Like HP, Dell offers a tonne of ranges and models that cater for every market segment, from business, to kids, to gamers. If you want the best of what Dell has to offer go for something like the XPS 13 or XPS 15 with their top of the range specs and bezel-free displays.
In business there's a wide range of Latitudes which you can configure feature by feature. But if you're the creative type, stick to the Precision line with its high-end offerings such as the Precision 7720 which features a Nvidia Quadro graphics card and a Xeon CPU.
If you're a gamer, look no further than Dell. The company owns Alienware line which produces the best gaming rigs on the market. For those gaming on a budget, the sub-£1k formerly named Inspiron 15 7000 is the laptop for you. This beast is now renamed the G-series (which sounds dam cool to us).
