At CES, Dell and Alienware show off new and improved PC, software and gaming innovations
Building on more than 30 years of purposeful innovation, Dell unveiled at CES 2019 a host of new and improved products and software experiences across its award-winning Latitude, XPS and Inspiron portfolios, alongside some new additions to its Alienware gaming line.
The new Latitude 7400 2-in-1, for example, has the ability to wake itself and be ready to go before you even touch it. The world’s first PC to use a proximity sensor enabled by Intel Context Sensing Technology, it includes ExpressSign-in. It detects your presence, wakes the system and immediately scans for facial recognition to log you in with Windows Hello. Just sit down with your device and start working without a touch, without a password. And when you step away for a break, it will know you’re gone and lock itself to preserve battery life and maintain security.
Powered by AI, the next-gen Lenovo Yoga family delivers a safer, smarter, more personalized and immersive experience, while gaming gets a performance boost with new Lenovo Legion devices
Technology from phones to smart homes has been getting safer, smarter, more personalized and immersive. Facial recognition and sensors for biometric authentication, cinema-quality entertainment on the go, and voice recognition to activate multiple virtual assistants that co-exist are now all possible. Evolving needs – such as desiring security and privacy without sacrificing convenience, or immersive entertainment without compromising on portability – have driven these advancements.
PCs have been quietly progressing in the same direction too. Artificial intelligence (AI) coupled with advanced audio and display technologies are making Lenovo’s next-gen Yoga computers their smartest yet.

ASUS unveils new ZenBooks, StudioBook, 3 additions to the VivoBook family and gaming laptops
The ZenBook S13 is an ultrabook that combines powerful performance and portability in a small chassis. The 13.9-inch Full HD display is surrounded by ASUS’ most impressive NanoEdge display to date – an ultra-thin 4-sided bezel, providing the industry’s biggest screen-to-body ratio. It’s also the thinnest laptop at 12.9 mm with discrete graphics (provided by NVIDIA.) Coupled with the latest quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, the ZenBook S13 pushes the boundaries for what’s possible inside a 13-inch laptop. The backlit keyboard spans almost the full width of the laptop. Underneath is a roomy trackpad with an integrated fingerprint sensor that makes for quick and convenient login via Windows Hello.
HP’s latest PCs and displays provide new ways to connect, create and compete more securely

Initially unveiled late last year, the dramatically reinvented HP Spectre Folio – the world’s first leather convertible PC – is now available in Bordeaux Burgundy and with a 4K display option exclusively via HP.com.
Acer debuts new compact design with Swift 7, reinvents gaming notebooks with new Predator Tritons
At CES 2019, Acer introduces the thin and light Swift 7 with a new premium chassis. An honoree of a CES 2019 Innovation Award, its ultra-narrow bezels make it virtually borderless, giving the Swift 7 a 92 percent screen-to-body ratio. It’s feather-light too, so that traveling professionals who carry a notebook through the day will rejoice at its weight: just two pounds.
Designed for portability, it’s made with magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys, which also keeps the keyboard sturdy and provides solid support while typing. These materials are two to four times stronger than standard aluminum alloys at the same thickness, yet are up to 20 to 35 percent lighter. Acer also applied a micro-arc oxidation finish to create a surface with an elegant, ceramic-like material.
