If you’re in the market for a new laptop, desktop, or gaming notebook this week, you’re in luck. Dell launched its biggest Presidents’ Day sale ever, running from February 11 to February 19, promising big savings on its Alienware, XPS products, and more.

The leading doorbuster deal during the Presidents’ Day sale happens on February 19 at 11 a.m. ET. It cuts the price on the Alienware M15 by $400 and brings its overall price from $2,049 to $1,650. The gaming laptop comes with a powerful eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor and last generation’s Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. You’ll also find that it packs 16GB of RAM as well as a 256GB solid-state drive. We reviewed it in December and were impressed by its 144Hz screen, robust build quality, and fantastic gaming performance.

Another big deal cuts the price on the Dell XPS 13 down from $1,470 to $1,200. It comes with the eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. This model features a Full HD Infinity Edge Display for an edge-to-edge viewing experience, a highlight for us in our review of the laptop.

Dell is also discounting several other of its Alienware gaming products and placing the overall pricing under $2,000. That includes a February 18 2 p.m. doorbuster on the Alienware Aurora desktop (now $1,400 instead of $2,099,) and the 11 a.m. doorbuster on the Alienware 17 gaming laptop (now $1,600 instead of $2,000.) Both these are solid options for gaming. The Alienware Aurora comes with the GTX 1080 graphics card, and Alienware Liquid Cooling. Meanwhile, the Alienware M17 comes with the GTX 1070 graphics card, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage.

As part of this sale, several monitors are also discounted. For the ultimate gaming setup, you can save $600 and get the Alienware 34 Curved Monitor, and a $100 Dell Promo gift card for $900. That total package usually has an otherwise estimated value of $1,850. You can also get the Dell 27 monitor for $150 instead of $249, which is a great price for a 27-inch Full HD monitor with HDMI and VGA connectivity.

Finally, there are some deals on Dell’s affordable Inspiron products. Starting at 11 a.m. on February 19, you can get the Inspiron Chromebook 11 2-in-1 for $200 instead of $280. You also can get the Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 1TB hard drive for $600 instead of $800.

9-year-old genius to graduate university

Published

Laurent Simons

(CNN) – A child prodigy from Belgium is on course to gain a bachelor’s degree at the tender age of 9.

Laurent Simons is studying electrical engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) — a tough course even for students of an average graduate age.

Described by staff as “simply extraordinary,” Laurent is on course to finish his degree in December.

He then plans to embark on a PhD program in electrical engineering while also studying for a medicine degree, his father told CNN.

His parents, Lydia and Alexander Simons, said they thought Laurent’s grandparents were exaggerating when they said he had a gift, but his teachers soon concurred.

“They noticed something very special about Laurent,” said Lydia.

Laurent was given test after test as teachers tried to work out the extent of his talents. “They told us he is like a sponge,” said Alexander.

While Laurent comes from a family of doctors, his parents have so far not received any explanation as to why their child prodigy is capable of learning so quickly.

But Lydia has her own theory.

“I ate a lot of fish during the pregnancy,” she joked.

The TUE has allowed Laurent to complete his course faster than other students.

“That is not unusual,” said Sjoerd Hulshof, education director of the TUE bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, in a statement.

“Special students that have good reasons for doing so can arrange an adjusted schedule. In much the same way we help students who participate in top sport.”

Hulshof said Laurent is “simply extraordinary” and praised the youngster.

“Laurent is the fastest student we have ever had here,” he said. “Not only is he hyper intelligent but also a very sympathetic boy.”

Laurent told CNN his favorite subject is electrical engineering and he’s also “going to study a bit of medicine.”

His progress has not gone unnoticed and he is already being sought out by prestigious universities around the world, although Laurent’s family wouldn’t be drawn on naming which of them he is considering for his PhD.

“The absorption of information is no problem for Laurent,” said his father.

“I think the focus will be on research and applying the knowledge to discover new things.”

While Laurent is evidently able to learn faster than most, his parents are being careful to let him enjoy himself too.

“We don’t want him to get too serious. He does whatever he likes,” said Alexander. “We need to find a balance between being a child and his talents.”

Laurent said he enjoys playing with his dog Sammy and playing on his phone, like many young people.

However, unlike most 9-year-olds, he has already worked out what he wants to do with his life: develop artificial organs.

In the meantime, Laurent has to finish his bachelor’s degree and choose which academic institution will play host to the next stage in his remarkable journey.

Before that, he plans on taking a vacation to Japan for an undoubtedly well-deserved break.

Gang members slam BMW into rival and his 8-year-old son in Harlem

Two gangbangers aimed their BMW like a missile at a father and his 8-year-old son on a Harlem sidewalk in a horrifying incident captured by video distributed by police Thursday.

The BMW — driven by a man police believe is a member of the Gorilla Stone Bloods Gang — was zeroed in on the father, a rival gang member, said cops.

Around 3:45 p.m. Nov. 6, the boy and his father were walking on W. 112th St. by Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. when the BMW jumped the sidewalk and slammed into them both, said cops.

Father and son were both knocked through a gate.

The BMW driver then backed up — and its driver and passenger, also believed to be a gang member, jumped out of the car and ran toward the father and the son.

One of the attackers slashed the father, identified by sources as 32-year-old Brian McIntosh, who’s served prison time for robbery and bail jumping.

McIntosh and his son went to Harlem Hospital. Miraculously, the boy escaped serious harm.

McIntosh was so adamant about refusing to help police catch his attackers that the young boy’s mother had to file a police report alleging he was the victim of a crime, police sources said.

Cops released video of the attack, and ask anyone with information about the suspects to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
