Yeah, we already heard that Dell's Phenom II-equipped XPS 625 was a solid value, but what does that really mean? The testing fiends over at HotHardware sought to find out, and after putting this gaming beast through more tests than it ever wanted to endure, they mirrored most of the earlier (positi

Hot on the heels of the news that Dell is axing its XPS gaming line to focus attention on Alienware, we've got word that Alienware will intro a new, low-end model soon. Clearly aiming for a bigger chunk of the market, the eyeball-shattering-system makers will offer a $1,699, AMD-powered desktop, fea

What's a flagging microprocessor company to do after an absolutely tumultuous 2007 (and start to 2008)? Why, dish out its own desktop family, of course! At least that's what AMD is reckoning judging by the abrupt introduction of the Business Class desktop. Obviously the firm's very first computer b

TG Daily's reporting that Dell's on the verge of releasing a new OptiPlex called the 740 Enhanced with options for triple and quad-core Phenom processors. It won't be any big deal for the majority AMD-spurned end users, but if you're an AMD-loving systems buyer your ears probably just perked up a b

In a memo sent out today by Dell, the company has reassured us that even though AMD is disappearing rapidly from its online store, the company remains \"committed\" to AMD, and is just \"in the process of redistributing its product mix\" -- whatever that means. But despite those euphemisms, consumers c

Our tip jar, it overfloweth -- tons of you have written in to say that Dell's stopped selling AMD-powered machines in its online store. That means any of you looking for a Latitude D531, Vostro 1000 or OptiPlex 740 will have to truck it out to Best Buy, Staples, or Wal-Mart to get your low-end busi

We can almost hear the guys at the nuke plant wincing as AMD's The Green Grid consortium took to the wires today to remind everyone of the impressive roster of companies they've enlisted (including borad members IBM, HP, Sun, Dell, and now also Microsoft and even archival Intel). The means to the en

Well folks, it's a new month, and we've got the first of new laptop reviews comin' down the pike. Dell's latest low-budget laptop ($500), which debuted about a month ago, has finally been put through its paces for a complete test by Laptop magazine. The reviewer found that the younger sibling of t

We wouldn't exactly call it a torrent of AMD-based laptops from previously Intel-faithful Dell, but it's at least a start. The new Latitude 131L is the small-biz counterpart to the Inspiron 1501, featuring a Turion 64 X2 dual-core processor (starting at $899) or a Sempron processor (starting at $

As expected, Dell and AMD are busting out a cheap-as-free 15-incher this month -- and today looks to be the day. The new Inspiron 1501 sports a 15.4-inch WXGA display (presumably 1,280 x 800), and the base model sports a 1.6GHz AMD Sempron 3500+ processor, 512MB of RAM, a 60GB HDD, CD-RW/DVD-ROM com

We know that it's just been one big lovefest between Dell and AMD over the last few months. Most recently, we saw Dell's new AMD-powered desktops, which pack some of that Athlon 64 X2 dual-core power; however, we've just learned that Dell is going to be shipping AMD-based laptops during the end of

It's been a little while since we've heard from AMD LIVE!, the company's answer to Intel's Viiv platform, but today, AMD announced its latest round of Live PCs, made by Alienware and Dell. While we don't have a lot of details on what exactly will constitute these devices, the word on the street is t

Dell sure dragged it out long enough, but they've finally gone official on four new desktops, two of which hold those elusive -- at least for Dell -- AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core chips. Privy to the Athlon action are two new Dimension models, the E521 and C521 (pictured), while the new XPS 210 and

Not exactly the best of places to drop some industry-rocking news, but as per Dell's quarterly earnings report, they're officially going with AMD Athlons in future Dimension desktops due out as early as next month -- even earlier than previously assumed. Guess there's not much more to say than that

As usual, there's no official word from Dell on any of this, but it's clear that they can't ignore AMD in the consumer space forever. According to a report by ZDNet Asia, Dell is planning to release laptops based on AMD's Sempron and Turion 64 X2 processors this October, kicking things off with s

We're all getting a mite bit ill of the recurring Dell + AMD sitting in a tree, c-o-m-p-u-t-i-n-g rumor, but a bit more fuel's been added to the fire by way of a supposed report out of China. According to Chinese paper the Commercial Times, it would appear Mitac and Quanta -- two well known and res
