In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

The XPS 13 9340 and XPS 14 9440 are great compact machines that offer powerful hardware, modern design, and great battery life. The bigger Dell XPS 16 9640 is no different. Once again, this machine is powered by 28W Intel Meteor Lake CPUs and the most powerful chip for the series is the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H. This time around, you can opt for punchier NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPUs, you can go as high as GeForce RTX 4070. The latter is also tied with vapor chamber cooling and faster (soldered) memory while the not-so-powerful siblings rely on RAM with lower frequency and normal thermal system. Spe[...]
