Ultra-wide monitors are overwhelming yet impressive to behold, and Dell thinks it has made one that will appeal to all types of professionals. The new U4919DW UltraSharp 49-inch curved monitor nods to the massive gaming monitors made by Samsung, MSI, and others, but it adds a workplace spin while upping the resolution to QHD.
Dell describes the U4919DW as the equivalent of two 27-inch monitors stuck together, and its dual mode cements that comparison. Users can fill the entire screen with their desired programs, or they can split it down the middle so the display literally looks like a beast with two heads—two different screens sitting side by side on a single stand.
Among the new hardware launched this week at IFA in Berlin are a couple of premium Chromebooks. Lenovo’s $600 Yoga Chromebook brings high-end styling and materials to the Chromebook space, along with well-specced internals and a high quality screen. Dell’s $600 Inspiron Chromebook 14 has slightly lower specs but is similarly offering better styling, bigger, better quality screens, and superior specs to the Chromebook space.
These systems join a few other premium Chromebooks already out there. HP’s Chromebook x2 is a $600 convertible hybrid launched a few months ago, and Samsung has had its Chromebook Plus and Pro systems for more than a year now. And of course, Google’s Pixelbook is an astronomically expensive Chrome OS machine.
This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the latest Dell XPS 15 2 in 1 laptop/tablet/convertible device.
It comes packed with a lot of features like the Intel Core i7-8705G processor and 16 gb ram, along with 256 GB of SSD storage.
It is fast, looks great, has a fantastic display and does most everything well. However it has a few downsides such as battery life and the web cam placement, watch the video to learn the details on those.
It will do a very respectable job of playing games and can obviously do well at any business application you throw at it.
So let us get right to that video!

Dell keeps on launching laptops, this time with an XPS 15 9570 model, that weighs 4 pounds and costs upwards from $1000. It’s got a 15.6 inch screen and relies on an Intel Coffee Lake-H CPU, as well as NVIDIA graphics on some of the pricier models.
Unveiled last month, Dell XPS 9570 has been made available for order from Dell.com, starting from an 8th gen Intel Core i5-8300H processor, 8 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. There’s also a 56 Whr battery here and the screen is an IPS with Full HD resolution (non touch), with sRGB color gamut. Of course you can opt for a higher end unit with up to 4K touchscreen, a crazy Intel Core i9 and GTX 1050 graphics. However, that will cost you $2900…
Connectivity-wise, things are generous: Thunderbolt 3 port, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, HDMI 2.0, SD card slot, audio jack. The build is also premium, on account of a CNC machined aluminum chassis and carbon fiber palm rest, plus backlit keyboard. You can also configure your machine with SSDs, up to 32 GB of RAM and all within a 0.7 inch thickness.
Judging from the pics, the screen has very narrow bezels, much like the Dell monitors from the latest generations.
