Dell takes LCD TV line to 30 inches

Dell expanded its consumer offerings Monday by announcing two new LCD (liquid crystal display) televisions at the Comdex trade show in Las Vegas.

The company launched its first LCD TV, a 17-inch model priced at US$699, in October. On Monday it began selling a 30-inch version, called the W3000, priced at $3,299, and will follow it later this year with a 23-inch model, the W2300, it said in a statement. Pricing for the W2300 wasn't announced.

Both televisions can display HDTV (high definition television) programming and include an integrated television tuner. They also have analog and digital inputs for connecting to a PC, and support S-video, component and composite video. They're designed to sit on a table or mount on a wall.

Like other PC vendors such as Gateway Inc. and Hewlett-Packard Co., Dell has turned to the consumer electronics world in search of new revenue. PC sales are on the rise after two years of stagnation, but the growth rates of devices like LCD TVs and digital music players have attracted the attention of PC makers.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
