Dell XPS 18 hands-on review: an enormous all-in-one PC
8 March 2014
Conclusion: We liked the XPS 18. It’s far better than the Tap 20 in terms of portability and it also has a terrific screen with an excellent viewing angle. We can see it being useful in family homes where the flexibility and multiple-user nature of Windows could be a real bonus.
Summary: If you're looking for a marked departure from the traditional all in one, you need look no further than the XPS 18. The system essentially imitates a giant tablet, and its light, easy to carry form factor lets you set the machine up anywhere you want it (in many ways much easier than other desktops...
Conclusion: 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 internals.
Pros: Portable yet works well as a desktop PC, Sharp and colorful full HD IPS touch screen, very good build quality.
Cons: 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.
Conclusion: 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.
Summary: 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...
Pros: 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 performance running on battery, Large battery, A g...
Cons: 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).
Conclusion: 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 as its exceptionally thin, light and comfortable...
Pros: Well-built and attractive PC converts to giant tabletop tablet, Great-looking screen, Decent performance, Highly responsive touch screen
Cons: Small screen for an all-in-one at this price, Just two USB ports, No HDMI
Summary: The Dell XPS 18 certainly has a split identity as it could certainly be used as a sleek-looking AIO computer where you’re completely free of any unnecessary cables hanging off of your computer in order to connect your display, keyboard, mouse and anything else you absolutely need to have connected...
Summary: If 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.
