Dell XPS 18 Review


On paper, the Dell XPS 18 all-in-one/tablet hybrid shouldn't work, with its massive 18.4-inch screen potentially destroying any possibility of portability. And yet, it works well.

Review Dell XPS 18 AIO Tablet


All-inclusive. Dell calls its 18.4-inch tablet an All-in-One. We

IPS display with good viewing angle stability; Good color fidelity; Dual channel RAM; Very good overall concept; Excellent build quality; Great keyboard; Mouse and charging dock included; Easy to maintain; Numerous accessories available; Full CPU...

Reduced GPU performance running on battery; Quite loud under load; Grayscale presentation could be better

Competitors are quite rare: Sony Vaio Tap 20 and soon the Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27.

This complete review of the Dell XPS 18 goes over all practical aspects of this computer to give you an accurate picture of how it is

If you look at its dual identities by themselves, then you’ll see it isn’t as powerful as a desktop computer and it isn’t as mobile as an ultrabook, laptop or tablet. But what it lacks in power and portability, it more than makes up for with its sleek,...

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 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 18 Review


The most massive “tablet” you'll ever use – if you don't count the Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27 – is sitting on SlashGear's review bench this week: the Dell XPS 18. The reason we'd call it a “tablet” is because you can, indeed, rest it on your lap and...

Here Windows 8 shines as a touch-friendly operating system once again as well. While it’s still imperfect, working with Dell’s implementation of touch makes the system amongst the easiest Windows 8 devices to use that we’ve encountered thus far. And...

Dell XPS 18 Review


After a few years spent off the radar, the cliché “Go big or go home!” is making a comeback thanks to consumer electronics. The “bigger-is-better” philosophy can be found in smartphones, televisions, and all-in-one PCs. While the consumers a decade ago...

Large, high-quality display ; Solid bundled peripherals

A handful of poorly located ports ; Optional $99 charging stand doesn’t add ports ; Mundane design ; Poor performance for the price ; Heavy and awkward to use as a tablet ; Not a good value

The XPS 18 is too large to work as a tablet, yet too small to compete with premium all-in-ones.

Dell XPS 18


The Dell XPS 18 fulfills a niche somewhere between a large screen ultrabook and a dedicated all-in-one desktop PC. It mostly works, though the market for such a product is still in its beginning stages.

Portable around the house. Huge screen for a portable. Thinner and lighter than previous portable all in ones. Ultrabook performance in a tablet form factor. Wi-Di compatible. 12 month subscription to McAfee Security

Stand is charging only. Limited ports. Kickstands are plastic/polycarbonate

The Dell XPS 18 ($1,399 list) is a portable all-in-one desktop PC. Larger than a tablet or laptop, but smaller than a full blown all-in-one desktop, the Dell XPS 18 lets you bring a full Windows 8 PC around the house or office corridors with you. It...

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.
