Whether you’re an avid gamer, a designer, or just an everyday computer user tired of straining your eyes, a 27-inch monitor can make the path to an altogether better computing experience. This crystal clear, and sightly monitor from Dell has 1,920 x 1,080 resolution with a 75 Hz refresh rate (great for gaming and fast action), 16:9 aspect ratio, and LED edge light system lighting your way to fantastically clear, smooth images. It also comes with Adaptive-Sync Technology AMD FreeSync technology, which cuts down on stutter and brings utterly smooth frames to your screen, no matter how fast and furious your gameplay or streaming, or how complex the graphics. In terms of compatibility, we’re looking at two HDMI ports, as well as an audio line-out port, if you want to work, or watch, quietly. For only $180, this monitor can really improve the look and feel of your computer, and everything you do on it.
For everyday needs in the home, office, or dorm — a new PC doesn’t need to be a pain for your wallet. Dell’s new Inspiron is a solid, compact, versatile machine, especially for under $500. It’s plenty powerful, boasting a 10th-generation Intel Core i3-10100 processor (four-Core 6M cache, 3.6GHz to 4.3GHz), which is backed up by 8GB of RAM. Meanwhile, it doubles down on its dependency with a 1TB 7200rpm HDD; this is a more than generous amount of storage space, that can move data at impressive speeds. It comes with Windows 10 and an Intel UHD Graphics 630 card with shared graphics memory, in case you’re interested in gaming. Best of all, it’s an impressive 16% smaller than previous Inspiron designs, so it won’t take up too much space in your home office or dorm room. On top of being a reliable and affordable machine, its size makes it uniquely compact, and potentially portable, too.
A fantastic laptop for your everyday needs, the 15-inch Inspiron 3000 is like a portable version of the Inspiron described above, for not very much more money, either. This sleek and handsome laptop is powered by a 10th-generation Intel Core i5-1035G1 Processor (6MB cache, up to 3.6GHz), backed up by 8GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the hard drive boasts 1TB of disk space. It’s has a new three-cell, 42WHr integrated battery and a good number of ports to ensure the convenience of connectivity, including HDMI, USB 2.0, and two USB 3.1 ports. If this is going to be your main computer, there’s some good news for your eyes: Dell equipped this laptop with an HD anti-glare display, which gives you a super bright image. Like the Inspiron desktop, it comes ready to roll with Windows 10, but on top of this, there’s a free month trial of Windows 365 if you buy it now.
Calling all gamers: If you think a top gaming computer had to be in the thousands of dollars, think again. While you can definitely use this laptop for everyday tasks, its focus is on its gaming abilities. It has a more discreet GPU and larger display than many of the other gaming laptops out there. Like the Inspirons, it has Intel power, with a 10th-generation Intel Core i5-10300H CPU. Just as important for gamers are the graphics, and this laptop offers top-notch capabilities with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU. These great specs are backed up with 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256GB SSD, which will take care of you and all the newest, fastest games with the richest graphics. The display is IPS, and the 15.6 inches of screen offer a great way to experience the gaming action. This is a great laptop for everyday gaming, but also everyday computing, whether you’re making presentations or just crafting emails between bouts of gameplay.
One of the pricier laptops that Dell sells, but for good reason. First of all, there’s 10th-generation Intel Core i7-10710U Processor (12MB cache, up to 4.7GHz, six cores) which is one of the most advanced chips you’ll find on such a machine. Especially in a compact, 13-inch screen with unbelievable InfinityEdge display (less border than ever, so you can enjoy your 8 million pixels in all their 4K Ultra HD glory). Also, Dell has placed an innovative HD webcam at the top of the screen, giving you the ultimate vantage for all your Zoom and Facetime calls. It also has superior 400-nit brightness, which allows you to see the best images in any light, including the outdoors. It has Thunderbolt 3 multi-use Type-C ports for lightning-fast charging and data transfer. And get this: the battery lasts an amazing 19 hours. This is the most powerful laptop money can buy in its 13-inch class, so if you’re looking to invest in something small and powerful, this could be the laptop for you.
