Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Dell XPS 13 (2018) Notebook Full Review

Tonight’s video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers, in detail, the new Dell XPS 13 that was just released.

The new model is thinner and lighter than last year’s version and in the case of this review comes with a 4K display.

Of course that thinner, lighter stuff means less  space to cram stuff under the hood. So the battery is a bit smaller and gone is a full size SD card slot and also gone are the full size USB ports.

On the other hand we get 3 USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and we at least get a USB-C to full size USB adapter dongle in the box.

We have an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM along with a relatively quick 256 GB SSD.

So all the above being said, check out the video, subscribe to Andrew’s channel if you like this tech stuff and want honest reviews.

That is all for now,

Tim

More Videos Worth Sharing From CES 2018: Dell XPS 13 (2018) and Razer Project Linda

Tonight we have a couple more short videos from Andrew over at AMDTech. These will be covering the new Dell XPS 13 and the somewhat interesting Razer Project Linda.

The Dell  XPS 13 of course has received a refresh and comes in a new color and with some changes to processors and also to the battery.

Razer’s Project Linda is basically a notebook that allows you to insert your Razer phone in where you would normally find the track pad. Drop the phone in place and you now have a 13 inch Android notebook.

I am not sure why you would want to do this, since you could just get a Chromebook and still be able to run Android apps. However this is still a very slick looking machine.

So now let us get to those videos, both short, but very informative.

That is all for now,

Tim

This Afternoon’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review Of The Dell XPS 13 (2017) Notebook

The Dell XPS 13 is undoubtably one of the better 13.3 inch notebooks available these days and even has a new refresh coming out very shortly.

But the 2017 model is no slouch, with the 8th gen Core-i5 CPU and 8 GB ram and either a touchscreen or a hi-res non-touch display.

The video we are sharing today covers the Core i5 version with the touchscreen FHD display. This one is from Andrew over at AMDTech and will cover all the different variants but primary concentrates on the Core i5/8 GB RAM version.

The battery life on this device are absolutely fantastic, making it a great choice as a lightweight all day notebook.

So let us proceed to that video right now.

That is all for now,

Tim

I Finally Sold The Old Dell Optiplex…I Shall Miss It…Okay, Not That Much.

The Old Server is now gone

Today I finally found a legit buyer for the Dell and to put it mildly, they got themselves a heck of a deal! However, I am sad to see it go, because I no longer have a PC to play with Linux.

On the other hand, my electric bill will now drop since I am no longer using that 125W power, but only my tablets and the Zotac, which draws a max of 37W.

Am I a cheapskate? Yeah! But unless you really need a desktop device, why in the hell would you want an old tower PC? My little Zotac does the web serving for all my sites these days, except this site, which primarily runs on a tablet PC. Of course for the next few days, until I receive the Chuwi Hi12 that I ordered it may occasionally run on the Zotac, along with my other sites, (like when I am using it for work).

That is all,

Tim

It is Time Once Again For the HiBook News, Today’s Edition: Waiting on The Hi12

Today’s report will be fairly short. The HiBook is now officially my only truly mobile PC after selling my laptop. Of course that will change when my new Hi12 arrives. I expect it to arrive sometime this week as it is being shipped from China and it has been 7 days and counting since I ordered it.

The HiBook will primarily be shifted to full time server duty once the Hi12 is received, but today we are serving the web site from my old Dell PC which is also for sale. Hopefully the Hi12 will arrive before someone realizes what a good deal a Dell PC, with 8 gb ram and a 1 TB drive is.

Today I am actually using the HiBook as a notebook along with the Logitech K480 keyboard, which I will also use with my Hi12. So one keyboard and the ability to use it with my Mini-PC and my HiBook and Hi12 with a simple flip of the switch certainly makes more sense than buying the add-on keyboards which actually cost more than the Logitech.

Incidentally you can still find one of these HiBooks, the Pro model, at a very reasonable $184 at this link.

I am trying to remain calm, but I am really expecting a great experience from the Hi12 and can’t wait to report on it. Of course Chuwi has already released a 13.5 inch Hi13 with some great specs which I wrote about in my previous article here. But I am holding off on that one until I see a few 3rd party, unbiased reviews.

That is all for today,

Tim
