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

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.

Dell XPS 27 all-in-one desktop computer

 

With all the attention being paid to Windows 8 laptops, tablets, and hybrids with touch screens, it can be easy to forget that an all-in-one desktop is perhaps the most natural use of a touch screen in a computer. In fact, years before Windows 8 made...

Dell XPS One 27 Touch

 

The Dell XPS One 27 Touch ($2,599.99 list) is a high-end all-in-one desktop PC that gets Windows 8 right. It starts off by helping you learn how to use the new operating system (and let's face it, Win 8 is new to most people); plus its touch interface...

Fast processor. DX11 graphics. mSATA with Intel SRT. 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi. Improved hinge with height adjustment. 10-finger touch and seamless screen glass. 2,560-by-1,440 resolution. HDMI in and out. Nice styling. Internal power supply...

USB 3.0 ports aren't blue. A little thick compared to competitors. Reflective screen

The Dell XPS One 27 Touch is the way everyone should first use Windows 8. It's a power user's system that check all the boxes and makes Windows 8 great.

Dell XPS One 27

 

The all-in-one computer market has been injected with steroids. Back in 2009, the iMac popularized going big with its 27-inch model, and competitors have followed Cupertino's lead. Earlier this year, we reviewed the massive HP Omni 27. Now we've...

Good design ; Beautiful 2560 x 1440 display ; Excellent sound quality ; Useful connectivity ; Respectable performance

Stand does not swivel or adjust for height ; Extremely glossy display finish ; Graphics processing unit can’t handle modern games at native resolution

All-in-one computers require some tradeoffs, but if you’re willing to sacrifice future upgrades for a more attractive and better-integrated PC, the XPS One 27 is the computer to buy.

Dell XPS One 27 Review: A Power-Packed, Pricey All-in-One

 

If you're in the market for a new all-in-one PC, the Dell XPS One 27 is an appealing option. It's fast, it handles Blu-ray discs, it delivers a great picture on its 27-inch PLS screen, and it costs all of $3500 less than the current category leader,...

Great price-to-performance ratio ; Beautiful screen and ample connectivity

Boring (but wireless) keyboard and mouse ; Lacks a touch-sensitive panel

Dell's Ivy Bridge all-in-one has a high asking price but is worth considering for its excellent combination of speed, features, and looks.
