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 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.

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.

Dell XPS


The Dell XPS is a great choice for a business laptop. It gets the job done with ease, and it has enough bells and whistles to handle most other extra tasks you may want to accomplish with it. The lack of extra connectivity options weighs it down a...

The excellent processor, video card and display provide an office experience on the road

The Dell XPS has a bit less memory and storage space than other business laptops

Despite its bulky design, this Dell laptop has strong features and is an excellent choice for a business laptop.

It's very expensive but this all-in-one PC is the perfect home, work and entertainment hybrid

Dell XPS 27 Touch review: Looks are everything


When it comes to its high-end all-in-one PC lineup, Dell seems to be operating on the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" principle. The XPS 27 Touch packs a speedy new Haswell CPU under its hood, but that's the only significant departure from earlier...

Aside from those quibbles, the Dell XPS 27 Touch is an exquisite all-in-one.

Pretty Good Not Great


Next time I will probably go with either an ASUS or a Cyberpower. They offer more for your money and with Cyberpower you can go right to the guys who built it--no India.

It's a modern up to date computer as far as hardware is concerned. It functions (finally) like a good computer should. Has everything you need if you are NOT a "serious gamer

In a word "Dell". There stuff rarely arrives with up to date drivers and their updates seem always to run into glitches. Yes, their people get you out of your misery . . .eventually, but it takes forever--in my case over 7 hours, even though I am...

Awesome computer


I was concerned about buying a refurbished computer, but this one is great. It looked new, and in fact the keyboard and mouse were shipped new
