Dell doesn’t necessarily have to use the Alienware gaming brand for a corresponding notebook. With the G15 (5530) and G16 (7630), the company is relaunching two of its own devices with Intel Raptor Lake and Nvidia Ada Lovelace aka RTX 4000. Models with AMD components will also follow at a later date.

Where Alienware charges at least $2,599 for the new m16, the G15 and G16 start at $849 and $1,499 respectively. It should be self-explanatory that the equipment is not identical, but fast components such as the CPU and GPU are also available in the cheaper gaming notebooks.

Colorful housing in matt colors

The G15 and G17 initially attract attention with their colorful, matte casings. The G15 comes in Dark Shadow Gray with a black Thermal Shelf, as the rump on the hinge is called, or alternatively in Quantum White with Deep Space Blue as an accent color, and in Pop Purple with a Neo Mint Thermal Shelf “. Dell has launched the G16 in “Metallic Nightshade” with black contrasting color and in “Quantum White” with Thermal Shelf in “Metallic Nightshade”.

Raptor Lake and RTX 4000 at launch

Under the hood, for the planned market launch in the first quarter of 2023, there will initially only be hardware from Intel and Nvidia, with models with AMD hardware to follow later in the second quarter. From the Intel portfolio renewed for CES 2023, the Core i5-13450HX to the Core i9-13900HX are used. “Next-Gen RTX Graphics” come from Nvidia, which Ada Lovelace alias RTX 4000 suggests. Dell deliberately omits details about the GPUs at one point in the data sheet, but then mentions the graphics cards in the connectivity. According to this, the basis is still an RTX 3050, with the RTX 4050, 4060 and 4070 ranking above it. The RTX 3070 was already the end of the previous G models from Dell, so this time the RTX 4080 and 4090 are reserved for Alienware.

Cooling partly from Alienware

Speaking of Alienware: Dell wants to have taken over certain characteristics of the cooling system from the gaming brand. The manufacturer names four heat pipes, improved fans with particularly thin fan blades, a larger cooling surface overall and, in selected configurations, the use of a vapor chamber and “Element 31”, a gallium-silicone matrix, as thermal paste. The F9 key can be used to switch between the various performance modes of the notebooks.

Screens in 16:9 and 16:10

The image output is 15 or 16 inches, with the G15 staying at 16:9 and the G16 using the 16:10 format. The larger diagonal goes hand in hand with a higher resolution of 2,560 × 1,600 instead of 1,920 × 1,080 pixels. In addition, only in the G16 are both panels, which according to the data sheet only differ in the sRGB or DCI-P3 color space coverage, up to 300 cd/m² bright , while the G15 starts at 250 cd/m².

Other features of the notebooks are, depending on the configuration, 56 or 86 Wh batteries, a selection of different RGB keyboards also with Cherry MX buttons on the G16, Wi-Fi 6, a webcam with 720p resolution and Windows 11 Home or Pro.

ComputerBase received information about this item from Dell under NDA. The only requirement was the earliest possible publication date.

The most frequent problems regarding time control

Avatar of Thomas Grimm

As indicated from Woffu, time control managementIn addition to being a legal necessity, it is one of the main headaches for HR managers. The company highlights the main difficulties when it comes to managing the presence and absence of workers and how to solve them.

Waste of time solving incidents

One of the main problems that HR managers encounter is the time invested in solving incidents caused by disconnected tools, which do not have the technology to integrate vacations and absences with the presence in the same tool.

Many companies manage absence requests by email, paper or Excel sheets, for example, which do not allow them to attach supporting documents. In this way, as they point out from Woffu “team leaders waste hours and hours searching for and requesting receipts, reviewing who is working and who is not available. This prevents them from focusing on valuable tasks.”

Non-digitized HR processes

In the same way, one of the obstacles in the management of time control is the lack of digitization. Since the Time Control Law does not specify whether it must be done with a tool designed for it, there are many companies that choose for continuing to register on paper or in Excel sheets. “Companies waste a lot of time by manually recording the hours worked and the reasons for absence, in addition to the fact that the margin of error is greater and the data obtained is not reliable”, They comment from Woffu.

In addition, in many companies, the tools used do not allow managing the signing of a hybrid work model or a work model only remotely. Therefore, by not having this digitization, the company lacks data and information that helps to understand its reality, such as the absenteeism rate, departments that telework the most, etc.

Lack of visibility of the days of absence and presence

Another of the common problems is that the company usually lacks visibility of the days of absence and presence of employees or between teams. This translates into a waste of time asking or searching emails or notifications for the availability of the rest of the team. Related to that lack of visibility is the fact that employees may believe that their overtime is not being recorded. This leads to disgruntled and distrustful employees.

Tools that do not meet the needs

It may happen that HR software has been hired, but when employees and managers use it to record the workday, or to request medical hours, the tool does not meet usability standards. Or it does not allow a real-time connection with visualization on any device. In this case, it is best to test the tool before entering into a deal. Make sure that it is user friendly and that it responds to the needs of both employees and HR managers. We must try to make the use of the labor registration tool as easy and bearable as possible, so it will be possible to ensure its daily use and full adoption by the workforce.

Time Control Law

Despite the fact that it has been more than four years since the implementation of the Control Law, it is still an aspect of business management that continues to generate controversy and controversy. In fact, according to data published by Grupo SPEC, half of the companies would not pass an inspection by the hourly register three years after the law. In fact, from September 2019 to May 2022, inspectors have detected a total of 3,299 violations in the registration of working hours throughout Spain and have imposed a total of 4.7 million euros in fines.

Avatar of Thomas Grimm




The new Acer Swift Edge is presented as a new high-performance ultraportable, and despite everything it maintains a very contained weight. This computer comes configured with a Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U APU, a chip that can be configured with a Zen 3+ CPU and a Radeon 680M GPU based on RDNA2 architecture. The processor has 8 cores and 16 threads at 2.7 GHz base frequency and 4.7 GHz speed in turbo mode, and the GPU has 768 shaders.

Despite being a low power solution, that APU is capable of delivering an excellent level of performance, and its integrated GPU can outperform dedicated solutions like the NVIDIA MX450so it’s a really interesting APU. The memory configuration that Acer has used in this equipment impresses, since we have a total of 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory at 6,400 MHz in the most powerful version, which translates into high bandwidth.

The screen of the Acer Swift Edge is 16 inches, you can mount a OLED panel with 4K resolution capable of reproducing 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and is TUV RHEINLAND certified, indicating both high quality color reproduction and low blue light emissions. The rest of its specifications are completed with a 1 TB M.2 SSD with PCIe 4.0 x4 interface, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and a FullHD webcam.

The range of connectors that the Acer Swift Edge brings is up to the equipment, and we can highlight the presence of two USB 4 connectors, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, a 3.5 mm jack and an HDMI output. In its base configuration, this equipment weighs only 1.17 kilograms, its chassis is made of a magnesium aluminum alloy and offers a range of up to 7 and a half hours for each battery charge. Its price will be 1,200 euros in its base configuration.
