The Kleinian singularities make up a family of well-understood (commutative) surface singularities. In 1998, Crawley-Boevey and Holland introduced a family of algebras which may be viewed as noncommutative deformations of Kleinian singularities. Using singularity categories, I will make comparisons between the types of singularity arising in the commutative and noncommutative settings. I will also show that the "most singular" of these noncommutative deformations has a noncommutative resolution for which an analogue of the geometric McKay correspondence holds.
