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
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
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
