DELL has taken the wrap a new 15-inch laptop, the XPS 15 and a new AIO, Inspiron 15 7000. Will they be enough to make me ditch Apple? My answer is, maybe, but it is Windows, which kind of a meh. TBH, it is the OS that has kept me away from DELL. OK. Maybe to some extend, the pricing over here. Anyways, so here it is, the DELL XPS 15 and boy, is it a beauty. Just look at those super narrow bezel offers by its InfinityEdge display. Not only does it make the laptop look sleek, but it also makes the overall size a tad smaller.

Microsoft Quietly Slips Two Sizes Of Surface Book 2 Into The Market

Sometimes I really don’t get what some consumer product makers are trying to achieve. They came up with a product that they obviously want to sell, yet, not only did they launch it quietly, but they deny the public of the marketing materials publicly available on places like, say, YouTube. The Microsoft Surface Book 2 is one such example. You see, prior to picking up the news, we saw a video put up on Microsoft Surface YouTube channel which I personally subscribed to. When trying to embed the video in my draft article, we noted the video “is unlisted” and was advised to “be considerate and think twice before sharing.” Obviously, I can just ignore it and go ahead and share it anyway, but I honor the words and thus, you won’t see embedded video of it in this post.
