Ronald N Bracewell is an Australian astronomer and engineer who worked in the CSIRO Radiophysics Laboratory during World War II, and whose work led to fundamental advances in medical imaging.

Bracewell is also the namesake for a new large-scale scientific computing system built by Dell, expanding the CSIRO's capability in deep learning and artificial intelligence.

Dell has long had a stable of powerful mainstream laptops that could handle games, its Inspiron 15 gaming laptops and its Alienware enthusiast line-up, but in recent years it's been missing an appealing desktop machine that's affordable enough for casual buyers but powerful enough for today's demanding titles.

Until now. The Inspiron Gaming Desktop is the first Dell machine using AMD's Ryzen CPUs, and it's built to allow gamers to upgrade their own PCs in the future, too, with headroom for dual graphics cards and cooling systems to handle any components.

If you're trying to spend less than $2000 on a computer you plan to use daily, then you will find yourself making compromises. In the case of the Dell Inspiron 7000, you get a beefy gaming computer that can take whatever game designers throw at it. Unfortunately, its physical design is rife with trade-offs. Indeed, you get a pretty great machine when you spend that $2000 on Dell's budget gaming laptop, but you're never gonna forget it's cheap.

When it comes to playing games, I've always preferred consoles to computers. Building (or buying) a custom gaming rig can be fun, but I need a dedicated laptop. And gaming laptops can definitely bring the power, but often with a size and battery-life trade-off that would make it impossible to use in any non-gaming scenario. So it used to be that if I wanted to game, it was easier to for me to spend money on an Xbox One S or PlayStation 4 Pro, rather than messing with PCs. But the new Alienware 13 is changing my mind about gaming laptops.

Upgrading your computer can be a great way to save a little cash. It can also be a great way to fulfil that need most gadget geeks have for getting cool new stuff on a regular basis. But upgrading can also be shockingly expensive if you're not careful (steer clear of Apple's overpriced RAM), and it can seem especially daunting to upgrade if you're not familiar with the insides of your computer.

Alienware's funky-lookin' laptops may look cool and play games good, but we've agreed in the past that they're generally a little bit too expensive for what you're getting. Microsoft's daily Christmas deal for today, though, knocks $1000 off the price of this 15-inch Alienware notebook. Why? Because it's about to be replaced by a new model.

Laptop 2-in-1s never creep past 15-inches, and the thinking seems to be that flipping around such a massive piece of machine would be unnecessarily awkward. Dell has decided to blow up that idea by introducing the new Inspiron 7000, featuring a monstrous 17-inch convertible configuration.
