  • Conclusion: Its high price and merely medium-fast graphics may be two strikes against the XPS One 27 Touch. But we've often seen a batter with two strikes crush the next pitch for a home run, and that's what our desktop of the year does.
  • Pros: Gorgeous ultra-high-res touch screen, High-end CPU, MSATA SSD for quick boot and program load times, Easily upgradable
  • Cons: Mobile-class graphics, while good for an all-in-one, aren't up to gaming at full screen resolution, Plastic back feels flimsy compared to Apple's aluminum-clad iMac

Dell XPS One 27 All-in-One System Review: Big Screen, One Wire

PC Perspective
19 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Reviewers, at times, can be somewhat myopic. I speak for myself in this particular instance. My job as a writer is to test hardware on a daily basis, and as such I have a very keen understanding (or so I hope) of the intricacies of computer design.

Digitaltrends
10 August 2012
  • Conclusion: All-in-one computers require some tradeoffs, but if you’re willing to sacrifice future upgrades for a more attractive and better-integrated PC, the XPS One 27 is the computer to buy. It offers an amazing display, good performance and a reasonable value.
  • Pros: Good design, Beautiful 2560 x 1440 display, Excellent sound quality, Useful connectivity, Respectable performance
  • Cons: Stand does not swivel or adjust for height, Extremely glossy display finish, Graphics processing unit can’t handle modern games at native resolution

Review: Dell XPS One 2710

Wired
28 June 2012
  • Excerpt: This computer got a lot of “oohs” and “ahhs” during the week it sat on my desk in the Wired office. And for good reason: Dell’s flagship all-in-one desktop, the brightest star in its XPS line of performance-minded machines, has got to be one of the nicest-looking Windows PCs currently on the market.
  • Pros: Best screen available on an all-in-one Windows PC. Beats Apple’s ,000 27-inch iMac in a specs-for-price battle: here, you get speedier quad-core Ivy Bridge chips, more storage, more RAM, Blu-ray and NVIDIA graphics. Has everything you’d need to turn it into a TV — now, or in a few years when it b...
  • Cons: Cheap, plastic casing pretends to be aluminum. No touch screen for future Windows 8 finger-swiping. Blu-ray disc only comes in the most expensive, ,000 model.

  • Conclusion: But even the $1,399 base model is impressive for the price, sporting the same stunning screen, a 1TB hard drive, and integrated Intel graphics that are good enough for casual gaming and HD video playback.
  • Pros: Gorgeous ultra-high-res screen, Brand-new CPU and graphics chips offer excellent performance, Solid-state cache for quick boot and program load times
  • Cons: No touch-screen option for Windows 8 upgraders, Mobile-class graphics not up to gaming at the screen's native resolution, Plastic back feels flimsy compared to Apple's aluminum-clad iMac

  • Excerpt: The all-in-one desktop market has belonged to Apple since we booted up our first Mac to hunt rabbits and die of dysentery on the Oregon Trail. Despite advances from its Windows-based competitors, the iMac has kept users captivated, thanks in large part to its high-density pixel resolution and...

Review: Dell XPS One

Wired
30 October 2008
  • Excerpt: November is quickly approaching and that means two things will soon be happening: The start of another soul-crushing holiday season (humbug!) and Dell will be refreshing its self-contained PC, the XPS One (jingle my bells!
  • Pros: Pleasingly industrial (albeit rehashed) looks. 2.33-GHz processor and 512-MB GPU add needed muscle. Attached JBL tweeter/sub combo provides rich audio and additional value. Front panel sports backlit, motion-sensitive media controls (with haptic feedback!). Wireless keyboard includes touch-sensit...
  • Cons: Sluggish frame rates for gaming. Relies on dongles for additional A/V inputs. Peripherals feel cheaper than General Motors stock. Wireless keyboard, wireless mouse and media remote gobble down batteries. Runs surprisingly hot despite power saving GPU and 45-nm chip.

TechRadar UK
26 October 2012
  • Summary: Windows 8 goes large with Dell's new touch powerhouse
  • Pros: Big screen, 2560 x 1440 resolution, Good components, Great media capabilities, Nice design, Large, good looking screen, Blu-ray options, HDMI and TV aerial inputs and a hefty hard drive makes the Dell XPS One 27 Touch a great living room PC. The touchscreen works extremely well with Windows 8, an...
  • Cons: Bit pricey, Underpowered graphics, The lack of a dedicated graphics card is a bit of a problem if you want to use the Dell XPS One 27 Touch for gaming and video editing. It won't be a problem for everyone, and the absence of a graphics card keeps the price a little cheaper, but it's worth conside...

Dell XPS One 27 review: The XPS One 27 (2710) packs a powerful Intel third generation Core i7 CPU into a 27in form factor

Good Gear Guide.au
19 August 2011
  • Summary: We don't usually get excited about all-in-one desktop PCs because they're all usually much the same. However, the Dell XPS One 27 has so much going for it, it's hard not to be impressed.
  • Pros: 27in, 2560x1440 screen, 3rd gen Core i7 CPU, Neat and good looking unit
  • Cons: Reflections from screen can be distracting, Poor mouse
