All-in-One PC Is Jack-of-All-Trades, Master of None

 

November is quickly approaching and that means two things will soon be happening: The start of another soul-crushing holiday season (humbug!) and Dell will be refreshing its self-contained PC, the XPS One (jingle my bells!) So, you can understand our...

In its marketing materials, Dell promotes its XPS One (which will be available on Dell's web site starting this coming Monday, November 19) as an "Object D' Envy." I actually agree with this flowery characterization. The first time I saw the XPS One's...

Attractive all-in-one form factor. User-serviceable case. (ATSC) HDTV Tuner. Blu-ray drive. Bluetooth. Excellent wireless keyboard with integrated touchpad. 802.11n wireless. Integrated IR sensor. Excellent multimedia performance. Video input breakout...

Only one drive bay. No back button on mouse. Cables in back can get unruly. Less than full 1,920 by 1,080p HDTV resolution. Internal graphics have only one upgrade path. Pricier than the competition. Base is less accommodating to keyboard storage ;...

Just when you thought that nothing could top the Apple iMac, the Dell XPS One has you thinking twice.

Dell's entry into the all-in-one field, the XPS One, is a nice-looking unit, but it falls just short of its competition.

Stylish design, including an adjustable display, Innovative display features, Blu-ray option, Nice software package

Somewhat expensive, Fixed configurations, Not upgradable, Display falls short of HD requirements, Gaming performance is lacking

The Dell XPS One 27 is one of the best all-in-one PCs because it offers robust features and an unmatched display resolution. Read more in our review.

This PC has a high-resolution touchscreen display with fast performance with the fourth generation Intel Core i7 processor

It doesn’t include a Blu-ray option

The XPS One is a solid all-in-one PC that has robust features such as HDMI and Thunderbolt connectivity, as well as a high resolution display that will make for a vivid experience.

Dell XPS One review

 

Dell's all-in-one faces up to Apple, so how does it fare?

Robust design and construction ; Brilliant screen

It costs how much? Really ; Super loud in operation

Expert review by:

Dell XPS One (24" - Core 2 Duo E6550)

 

Although the build is one of super high quality, the XPS One is a bit on the slow and noisy side

Robust design and construction ; Brilliant screen

It costs how much? Really ; Super loud in operation

So it's not quite the all-rounder you'd expect for that much cash. You could buy two quad-core Advent 200s for that and still have enough money left over to ease your brand-name envy

Dell's previous XPS PCs have been towering games machines, but not the XPS One.

Dell XPS ONE DSGi E6550 power desktop PC review

 

When considering a new PC, most customers weigh up the pros and cons of a desktop PC vs a laptop, with many of us choosing a laptop for use at home to save space and avoid clutter. All-in-one systems such as the Dell XPS ONE DSGi E6550 offer a third...

Despite its performance limitations, the Dell XPS ONE DSGi E6550 is an interesting alternative that may be just what you’re looking for.

Your first meeting with the Dell XPS One will almost certainly be a positive one. It's impossible not to be charmed by this clever all-in-one PC and monitor hybrid that, like the Apple iMac that it apes, is cunningly crafted, discreet and elegant. For...

The XPS One is one of the best-looking desktops we've clapped eyes on. But is its beauty only skin-deep?

The XPS One has got the looks, but it doesn't have the brains or media center prowess to compete with the iMac

Product Specifications

The XPS One: a gorgeous machine with abundant possibilities. Enjoy powerful computing; Hi-def widescreen, flat panel viewing; complete multi-media functionality... or lust, pure and simple. Sculptural and compact, the Dell XPS One is truly stunning. The bezel-less 20" display is a single sheet of glass, tempered for strength. The smoked glass base, also tempered, gives the system a light, sleek look. Finished front and back design is striking from every angle. Motion-sensitive controls glow blue when your hand approaches. With a single cord, a wireless keyboard and mouse and internal wireless card built right in, the XPS One is designed for minimal fuss and maximum cordless connectivity. Take it out of the box, plug it in, and you're ready to play. XPS performance and advanced entertainment come together in the XPS One. With powerful Intel processors, up to 2GB of memory and advanced graphics support, the XPS One has the computing horsepower and speed you demand. With a widescreen, flat panel display and integrated Hi-def TV tuner plus an optional Blu-ray Disc drive, it also functions as a high-end television and entertainment system. Equipped with proximity sensors, the XPS One almost anticipates your needs. Bring your hand close to the display, and the multimedia keys begin to glow. Press them, and they respond with sound and vibrations that register contact. Approach the system to insert a disc, and the slot load lights up. Edit photos, videos and music with the Adobe Elements Studio suite for creative projects that shine. This exclusive, pre-installed software package includes Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Premiere Elements, and pro-grade Adobe Soundbooth.
