Summary: I have a desktop that is several years old that was powerful but very large. Afer remodeling and wanting to regain some space I decided to consider an all in one machine. I went with this for the value and the historical experience I have had with other Dell products. The only thing close was the apple but the cost difference did not appeal to me.
The Hardware is Great. Windows 8 is less so, but still good.

Summary: The XPS 27 is a fantastic computer. Very high quality materials and build; runs fast; everything works the way it should. The screen is brilliant -- yes, it is glossy and reflects a lot of the room, but that doesn't bother me much. The touch screen is nice, but I don't use it much -- I don't like to smudge the screen, and I find it a little uncomfortable to be reaching out to the screen very often. But, overall, this computer is really great.
Summary: My biggest concern for purchasing an All-In-One is the lack of ability to "upgrade" it in the future. This machine came with the latest technology already installed, USB 3.0, Thunderbolt, nice video card (plays every game I have at full resolution 2560x1440 at medium to high settings), 2TB HDD and 32GB SSD for caching, I couldn't think of anything else I would ever upgrade or add to it that the expansion ports it comes with would stop me from doing.
