In these tough times, PC makers are still grappling with how much processing power and features to place in their Windows 8 tablets, just to compete with low-cost, low-power iPads and Android tablets.

The Dell Latitude 10 is one example of an either “half empty” or “half full” experience, depending on how you see things.

Folks who want a nice big screen with better-than-HD resolutions should have a look at Dell’s new UltraSharp 27-incher, because it offers a decent deal for the size and quality onboard.

The U2713HM is the latest in the UltraSharp range and comes with a sharp 2,560 x 1,440 resolution. That’s just shy of a 30-incher’s 2,560 x 1,600. Just as impressively, during our hands on in the past couple of weeks, the S$799 27-incher offers colour accuracy and a glare-free view.

The Apple iMac has arguably the best-looking design for a computer that’s placed on your desk. At least, it’s the most clutter-free when it comes to wires.

Fortunately, if you prefer the Windows route and don’t fancy paying extra to install that separately on a Mac, the are a number of good alternatives that come with the software out of the box. Here are three worth considering.

Dell XPS 14

Those who still think that Dell puts out boring machines should check out its latest XPS 14 ultrabook just unveiled on Tuesday in Singapore.

Weighing in at 2.1kg, it comes with a 14-inch screen that nicely straddles between a smaller 13-inch ultrabook and a 15-incher for workstations. It’s a machine that seems to be built for both portability and as a replacement for a desktop PC. And Dell’s promising up to 11 hours of battery life with this new ultrabook.

Ultrabook deals catch the eye at IT Show 2012

If flat-screen TVs, cameras or printers had ruled previous tech bazaars in Singapore, then this year’s IT Show is surely being taken over by an overwhelming range of ultrabooks.

The latest craze among laptop makers to go really slim, yet retaining most of the power of a full-fledged machine while keeping costs relatively low, means that buyers are spoilt for choice when shopping for a PC for both work and play.

We’ve all seen how nice the first wave of ultrabooks from Asus and Lenovo are from last year. The next wave, from Acer’s Aspire Timeline Ultra to HP’s stunning Envy 14 Spectre, brings even more choice.

Here are a few to check out as you make your way through the crowds at the IT Show at Suntec City this weekend.

Intel’s new CPUs roll out in geeked out Dell Alienware gaming desktops

If you’re a fan of Dell’s Alienware range of “bling-in-on” gaming desktops, you’d be happy to hear that the PCs now come with Intel’s top-end Core i7-3960X or Core i7 3930K six-core CPUs in Singapore.

On the new Alienware Aurora R4 desktop, the LGA2011-based CPUs are water-cooled, and factory-overclocked to between 3.9GHz and 4.1GHz as well, which seem alright, unless you’re the type who regularly pour liquid nitrogen into your PC for extreme speed.

What do you do with your printer toners after they run out of ink?

For most of us, it’s straight to the trash for these spent cartridges. But did you know that they can be recycled and re-made into useful products?

To encourage such a practice, five major printer brands – Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, and Lexmark – have come together in a joint initiative to offer collection points for these used inks and toners.
