Dell XPS Tower Special Edition (8930) Review & Rating

[ad_1] With the arrival of Intel’s new Coffee Lake processors, PC manufacturers have good reason to update their lines. Dell’s XPS Tower Special Edition (8930) (starts at $999; $1,524.99 as tested) is the latest take on one of our favorite general-purpose desktops, and the first Coffee Lake PC to come through our labs. This time around, The XPS Tower Special Edition packs an Intel Core i7-8700 processor, and the added speed is nothing to sneeze at. It also maintains what…

Oculus Santa Cruz hands-on: Truly standalone wireless VR

[ad_1] Going into my hands-on demo with Oculus’ Project Santa Cruz headset, think I forgot how it felt to be surprised by virtual reality. We’re coming up on three years since the last major advance in VR, which I’m going to peg as the first time I tried the HTC Vive’s room-scale experience. Since then we’ve seen a few refinements—Oculus Rift’s built-in headphones and lighter form factor, the remarkably comfortable and intuitive Oculus Touch controllers—but the fundamental tech has stayed…

Polywell B250G-i7 Review & Rating

[ad_1] The Polywell B250G-i7 (starts at $600; $799 as tested) is an eminently customizable and affordable small form factor (SFF) desktop PC, which makes it an excellent choice for small businesses and consumers who don’t need enterprise IT features but want a lot of power in a small package. There are a few disadvantages, such as an external power brick and a case that requires a screwdriver to open, but overall, the B250G is a capable machine and our new…

Oculus Go is a standalone $199 VR headset that doesn’t need a PC, a phone, or wires

[ad_1] “The sweet spot.” It sounds like that’s going to be VR’s new focus, as we head into Oculus Connect’s fourth annual iteration. And what is that sweet spot, exactly? Not mobile VR, not PC-based VR, but a blend of both. No wires, but the same high-fidelity experience people get from the Oculus Rift. That’s still probably a ways off, but Oculus took its first steps in that direction at Connect, announcing its new $199 Oculus Go headset, plus giving…

The best PC hardware you can buy today

[ad_1] Segue! If you’re going to drop big bucks on a take-no-prisoners graphics card, you’re going to want a high-end display to go with it. We don’t officially review monitors, so these picks are a mix of personal experience, user reviews, spec sheet parsing, and guidance from the display geeks at MonitorNerds.com. Monitors come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. We prefer the wide viewing angles and bright colors of IPS displays to the very slightly faster response…

HP Omen 17 (2017) review: You get a lot of gaming laptop for the money

[ad_1] When we reviewed HP’s 17-inch Omen gaming laptop last year, we found it to be a little boring, but packed with a ton of powerful hardware at a very attractive price. HP’s back this year with a new Omen design, but that general description still holds true. This is not the fanciest high-end gaming laptop we’ve seen. Nor is it the absolute fastest. Nonetheless, other brands charge hundreds more for the same basic specs, often with little or no performance…

The Best All-in-One Computers of 2017

[ad_1] Save Some Space So the 15-inch display on your laptop is starting to feel cramped, and you work mainly in one location. Yes, you could attach an additional screen to your notebook, or opt for a desktop tower with a separate monitor, but another option is an all-in-one (AIO) desktop. For about the same amount you would spend on a midrange-to-high-end laptop with a 17-inch screen (or more likely less), you can get an AIO desktop PC with a…
