Dell XPS One 27 Review

 

OK, our first look at the Dell XPS One 's gorgeous display didn't leave us quite as flabbergasted as astronaut David Bowmanstaring into the monolith at the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But the absolutely gorgeous Samsung PLS panel—with its 2560x1440...

Super high-resolution display; HDMI and S/PDIF out; 32GB SSD

PC must be powered on to use its HDMI input and to charge connected USB devices

Dell XPS

 

1TB of storage, dual cores, and overclocking... on a Dell? When you're the No. 1 PC manufacturer on planet Earth, it's hard to make machines that will appeal to Auntie Wendy while fronting an attitude that appeals to gamers and the power user elite. ...

With the new fifth-generation XPS, Dell hits with both bores. The Gen-5 XPS features Intel's new dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition 840-essentially a pair of 3.2GHz Pentium 4 Prescott cores. Factor in the Hyper-Threaded nature of these cores and you're...

Dell updates the awesome XPS 27 with new CPUs

 

As a big-screen upscale all-in-one with touch and decent gaming chops, the latest version of Dell's XPS 27 is a great all-around home PC that covers a lot of bases.

The updated Dell XPS 27 is highlighted by excellent performance and features, plus a higher-than-1080p touch screen, Nvidia graphics, and Intel's latest fourth-gen CPUs. An HDMI input lets it double as a display for a game console or cable box

The main benefit of Intel's new chips, amazing battery life, isn't applicable here. The adjustable stand could offer more flexibility

Dell XPS 27 Touch review

 

Plenty of consumer devices get labeled as Apple clones – some fairly, and some unfairly. But it's surprising how few products that bear that epithet actually wind up being great. You'd think taking cues from hugely successful products would be a...

Excellent Design ; Great 2,560 x 1,440 display ; Very good audio output ; Good performance for an all-in-one

Plastic backside feels a bit flimsy for a premium machine ; Graphics aren’t powerful enough to handle games at native resolution and high settings

With fresh components, a touch layer, and a much-improved stand, Dell’s XPS 27 is the best Windows-based AiO we’ve seen. With a starting price less than Apple’s competing offering, it may gain some iMac converts.

Dell XPS 27 Touch All-in-One (2720)

 

The Dell XPS 27 Touch All-in-One (2720) all-in-one desktop updates the best Windows 8 PC around with Intel's latest hardware, and comes up a winner.

Solid performance, thanks to fourth-generation Intel CPU and the latest Nvidia graphics. Spacious storage. Thunderbolt port for speedy storage and displays. Great looking touch display. Good sound. Well-made peripherals included. Has a full-year McAfee...

No Blu-ray. USB ports aren't easily distinguished

Earlier this year, Dell caught our attention with an all-in-one desktop that offered powerful performance, flexibility, and one of the best Windows 8 experiences found on a desktop PC. Freshly updated with Intel's newest Haswell processor, the Dell XPS...

Dell XPS 27 Touch review: Looks are everything

 

Dell sacrifices a little practicality for the sake of beauty, but this AIO is so terrific most people won't care.

High-quality touchscreen ; 2560 by 1440 resolution ; mSATA SSD cache ; Great overall performance ; Thunderbolt/Mini DisplayPort

No Blu-ray drive ; Skin tones look oversaturated ; Unlabeled front-panel buttons

While we have a few minor quibbles with the Dell XPS 27 Touch's design, we think this is the best all-in-one on the market today.

Far and away, the best Windows 8 all-in-one

 

Updated with a touch screen, a new stand, and up-to-date components, the Dell XPS One 27 leads the inaugural class of Windows 8 PCs.

The Dell XPS One 27 boasts the highest-display resolution among Windows 8 all-in-ones, and at an aggressive price

A new adjustable display support arm is welcome, but stops short of reclining a full 90 degrees

Dell XPS 27 Touch

 

No one says that the Dell XPS 27 Touch is a budget choice. However, all reviewers say that you get a premium all-in-one computer, and a premium computing experience, for its decidedly premium price. HotHardware.com writes: "This XPS 27 Touch is as...

Gorgeous design, State-of-the-art components, Terrific touch screen

Pricey, Only so-so for gaming

Dazzling 2,560x1,440 (instead of 1,920x1,080) touch screen, Height- and tilt-adjustable stand, Good sound and keyboard, Swift performance

Incapable of gaming at full resolution, Plastic back panel not as elegant as the iMac's aluminum

Its display is simply stunning, and its HDMI-in port lets you make the most of it (even using the system as a monitor on some future day when its Core i7 is as outdated as a Core 2 Duo is today). Its fit and finish are top-notch. And its keyboard and...

The Dell XPS 27 really is the full package in terms of multimedia computers. Its intuitive design gets the most out of the Windows 8 operating system and the components couple well to perform at high levels during multimedia use. The Dell XPS 27 is a...

The Dell XPS 27 Touch has better than 1080p resolution, and a responsive touchscreen

It only has 6 USB connections

This is a great multimedia PC. It performs well with Windows 8 and can handle all your multimedia needs.
