Holiday Gift Ideas From Dell & Alienware

While we are still putting together our all-in-one gift guide, we figured we’d share some of the shiny new hardware Dell has to offer in the meantime. Dell have some very awesome deals going at the moment also!

If I could sell my soul for cash, I would have already added the Alienware AW5520QF OLED 4K Gaming Monitor to my cart, clicked the purchase button and then sit with baited breath at the front door waiting for the courier! Ever since spending time with it during my review, it has been on my wish list!

Should you do happen to pick one up, I’d love it if you could throw a pic of your setup on our FB or Twitter feeds. It would be cool to checkout some of the different setups everyone has.

Tech Tips for a Happy Holiday Season

Dell have also put together a blog detailing the top tips in safely navigating online shopping as well as getting the most out of older tech gear.
