Review Dell XPS 18 AIO Tablet


All-inclusive. Dell calls its 18.4-inch tablet an All-in-One. We review the XPS 18 with a Core i5, 8 GB memory and a combined storage solution with an HDD and an SSD. Continue reading to find out how it performs... ...

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...

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

More ports are only available with an external solution, which is pretty pricey at 169 Euros (~$219)

Dell XPS 18


If three examples of the same thing marks a trend, then we're almost guaranteed to see more systems like the Dell XPS 18. Like the Sony Vaio Tap 20 and the Asus Transformer AIO , the XPS 18 is a hybrid of the all-in-one desktop and the large-format...

The Dell XPS 18 combines an all-in-one PC with a lightweight 18-inch tablet, making it a flexible system for at-home entertainment and productivity.

You're paying a premium for a relatively small screen. Less expensive configurations cut too many corners to be a good deal.

It's the best of the small handful of current tablet/all-in-one hybrids, with a subtle, sophisticated design and good battery life, but this new genre is still in its early days.

The Dell XPS 18 is part giant tablet, part desktop PC and a whole lot of fun for the whole family.

Extremely thin for an all-in-one; Great audio; More than 4 hours of battery life; Great for multiplayer games

Grainy webcam; Reflective display; Mediocre external keyboard

Click to EnlargeIf you look strictly at the numbers, the XPS 18 is not the best-performing PC in its price range. But it's the portability and the flexibility that makes this Windows 8 device extremely compelling, especially for families. We enjoyed...

Dell XPS 18 review


A huge tablet that's also an all-in-one PC

Stunning screen, Nice design, Feels responsive, Great for entertainment

Disappointing battery life, Not very powerful, Needs a more flexible stand, Lack of ports as an all-in-one

There is the seed of something very good indeed in the Dell XPS 18. It's a weird one, and it's easy to question why you would want a portable desktop PC, but once you've used one, the question feels more like, 'why not have this option?'.

"A lightweight,functional MVP in the big Tablet Category"


This lightweight, extremely portable AIO/tablet is the best of this category. I just happened on this

Lightweight, quality build materials, design, screen resolution, decent ports, Microsoft OS.

No HDMI PORT? NO high speed USB.
