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 CPU...

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 Review


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,...

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...

What Dell has created here is a truly unique amalgamation of elements. This computer can be a massive tablet, it can be a desktop machine, and it can be carried around in a custom-fitted carrying case that's also already out on the market. This isn't a...

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...

Dell XPS 18


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


Portable yet works well as a desktop PC, Sharp and colorful full HD IPS touch screen, very good build quality

Not the machine for gamers, at 5 lbs. and 18.4" the tablet isn't wildly portable. No HDMI, VGA or DisplayPort for second monitor

After spending a month with the Dell XPS 18, it's hard not to really like it. The lovely IPS display, occasional portability and quiet performance are strong selling points. It looks attractive, is well made and stays cool thanks to the low powered...

Dell XPS 18 Portable All-in-One Desktop Review


So phones start to become something else at around 5-6inches but when does a tablet become something more? Today we look at a device which Dell market as a 'Portable All in One Desktop', the XPS 18. Is it a desktop though... or is it just about the...

Well-built and attractive PC converts to giant tabletop tablet, Great-looking screen, Decent performance, Highly responsive touch screen

Small screen for an all-in-one at this price, Just two USB ports, No HDMI

We get that the XPS 18 is not for everybody. For some would-be AIO buyers, the small screen may be a deal-breaker. Still, we think its price premium for adding mobility is reasonable, and when considering the system's excellent screen quality, as well...
