CES 2019 was a big win for Dell with nine CES 2019 Innovation Honoree Awards. The wins were throughout its Alienware, Dell Precision, XPS, Latitude, Gaming and Displays portfolios. The accomplishments didn’t end there as Dell received two U.S.Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awards for its recycling and circular gold initiatives. Dell had a 2020 goal of recovering two billion pounds of used electronics and reached their goal. Dell now is on target to surpass the goal of repurposing 100 million pounds of recycled materials in Dell products by Earth Day in April 2019. Continue Reading →
CES 2018 was the largest show floor in CES’ 51 year history and they aren’t lying, everything was packed in Vegas with CES attendees. There was no place to hide! CES 2018 had more than 3,900 exhibitors showcasing innovative technologies that spanned more than 2.75 million net square feet of exhibit space across Las Vegas. Needless to say the tech geeks definitely took over CES 2018. Continue Reading →
Happy New Year! Looking back at 2017, Hi-Tech Chic had an amazing year of technology and fashion. We started off the year with a bang attending and covering CES 2017 including the Drone Rodeo. The fun didn’t stop there with GDC and SXSW. This was only the first three months of 2017! Continue Reading →
SXSW (South By South West) this year is the first year that I covered it solely for Hi-Tech Chic and it proved to be a very successful SXSW thus far as press. It was also the first time I did LIVE broadcasting via twitter and Facebook which was also an interesting experience for those listening, commenting and following my LIVE broadcast. I must admit cell coverage was non-existent during SX so I dropped the broadcast every so often. My apologies who got dropped off the broadcast and thanks for tuning in! Continue Reading →
While at CES I was able to meet up with some of my friends from Dell and HP that I use to work with. At CES this year HP and Dell both had products that received the Innovation Award as honorees. I decided to do a HP versus Dell article to see the difference between their products launched at CES. What’s wrong with a little competition? Since I have worked for both companies I will not be bias on one product versus another. Below is the comparison and also videos from CES about their launches including AMD.
This year Dell had 7 products that received CES’s Innovation Award as honorees. The products included the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, Dell Ultrathin Monitor, Dell Latitude 13 7000 Series, Dell Latitude 5285 2-in-1, Dell Canvas, Dell XPS 27 AIO, and Dell XPS 12.
The two products I liked checking out at the “Dell Experience” during CES was the Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor S2718D and the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 PC. I also loved that they had Irish coffee but that has nothing to do with one company’s or another in technology.
The Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor S2718D is the world’s thinnest monitor in its class with superb front-of-screen performance, Dell’s premium QHD ultrathin consumer monitor (S2718D) integrates elegance and cutting-edge HDR technology in a sleek, state-of-the-art design. The Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor will be available in the United States on March 23, 2017 for $699.99. Worldwide availability will follow soon after.
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has an InfinityEdge display that is now available for the first time in a 2-in-1 laptop. Designed for maximum mobility, the XPS 13 2-in-1 is the smallest in its class, while being thin, light and providing long battery life—up to 14 hours. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 will be available beginning January 5, 2017 on Dell.com and at Best Buy in the United States for $999.00.
HP also had a some wins for CES’s Innovation Awards as honorees which included the HP All-in-One, HP Elite x3, HP Spectre 13, HP ENVY Curved All-in-One, HP Spectre x360, HP Sprocket and Photo Printer.
My favorite HP product was the HP Sprocket Photo Printer and have been wanting this since it first came out. Using the HP Sprocket Photo Printer, you can create instant 2″ x 3″ stickable snapshots. Everyone knows HP has great printers and with the HP Sprocket Photo Printer I’m sure it won’t be any different. Currently you can purchase the HP Sprocket Photo Printer on HP’s site for only $129.00.
The HP ENVY Curved All-in-One is the world’s widest curved All-in-One1 PC. The 21:9 aspect ratio, high resolution WQHD (3440×1440)2, 34-inch diagonal curved PC is pure sensory overload. The specifications include an Intel® Core™ i5 processor, 12 GB memory; 1 TB HDD storage, 34″ WQHD WVA display, Intel® HD Graphics 530, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960A (2 GB GDDR5 dedicated).
I had a chance to check this out while at CES and I was blown away by the sharpness and graphics. The HP ENVY Curved All-in-One goes for $1599.00 and if you want more information or want to purchase a HP ENVY Curved All-in-One click here.
Since both Dell and HP use AMD processers I wanted to include my AMD booth visit. During CES AMD unveiled preliminary details of its forthcoming GPU architecture, Vega. Per AMD‘s site Vega is world’s most advanced GPU memory architecture and has an advanced pixel engine. At their CES booth AMD showcased both RYZEN and an early version of Vega. I also interviewed Jason from AMD who gave me insight on what we can expect from AMD in 2017.
Please note that GPU products based on the Vega architecture are expected to ship in the first half of 2017 so you will have to wait a couple months but the wait will be worth it. For more information about Vega or RYZEN click here.
