Dell XPS 18 (1820)


A lot like a big tablet with a docking station, the latest iteration of the Dell XPS 18 is thin, easy to tote around the house, and delivers 5+-hour battery life. That's more than enough to call this portable all-in-one desktop best in class.

Five-hour battery life. Portable around the house. Thinner and lighter than previous portable all in one PCs. Bundled charging stand has a wide range of tilt. 12-month McAfee Security subscription

Stand lacks USB connectivity Limited ports. Kickstands are plastic/polycarbonate

The Dell XPS 18 (1820) ($1,499.99 as tested) is a portable all-in-one desktop with a removable 18-inch full HD screen you can use like a tablet. Improvements over its predecessor, including a Haswell-based Intel Core i7 processor, mean that the XPS 18...

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.

Though the improvements are iterative, the new Dell XPS 27 Touch All-in-One (2720) impresses us with all the same details that made us fall in love with the previous XPS 27, and a boost in performance thanks to a new fourth-generation Intel Core i7...

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

A highly desirable machine, but too costly and strangely noisy to buy

Excellent All in One


I would purchase another one if required. Way to go Dell!

Great Core i7 processor and 1Gb of memory means blazing speed and enough power for multitasking. Very easy to set up; within an hour, reloaded McAfee, Office Pro and my other apps with all updates. The screen at 27 inches is superb with great...

The CD/DVD loads from the right hand side of the screen, so it cannot be inserted if you're in a tight space. It could have been placed in the base

Excellent Purchase


I do not use the touch screen feature so cannot comment on it.

The computer is blazing fast as you should expect. I use the computer for work (Microsoft Office Suite), browsing the internet, and to dabble in application development (Adobe Flash) ; I never wait. The computer runs many parallel applications at once...
