Although in recent years it has not made its presence felt in this field, Dell has announced several all-in-one systems, the most impressive being the 27-inch model Dell XPS.
XPS One 27 is a new all-in-one powered by Dell, whose starting price is $ 1,400. The system has a 27-inch screen – a first for the company’s portfolio – and a resolution of 2560 x 1440. The screen uses the same glass system like the iMac, but the leg has totally different design lines than Apple’s system. It comes without touchscreen functionality.
In terms of configuration, users will be able to choose between two Ivy Bridge CPUs: Core i5 – 3450s (2.8 GHz) and Core i7 – 3770s (3.1 GHz). Otherwise, the standard internal configuration includes 4GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive, and fortunately, the user can easily upgrade to 16GB of RAM and a 2TB hard drive. If the budget is not a problem, the user can even integrate a 32GB SSD mSATA.
In terms of graphics, the standard configuration features an Intel IGP HD Graphics 4000, but as previously, there is also an option to upgrade to an NVIDIA GeForce GT640M with a 2GB dedicated memory.
Regarding the connectivity, Dell XPS One 27 features Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi N, with the possibility of WiDi. The system also has USB 3.0 ports, a S/Pdif output or a slod loading optical drive upgradeable to Blu-ray. If the user intends to use the system as a monitor for a notebook or gaming console, it is noteworthy that the HDMI port on the back works in both ways.
The other two systems launched today are the Dell Inspiron One 23 and the Dell Inspiron One 20, whose diagonal dimensions account for their names. They come with weaker configurations, USB 2.0 instead of 3.0, VGA instead of HDMI and Sandy Bridge processors instead of Ivy Bridge. The price is also smaller – $ 750 is the starting price for the 23-inch version, while the 20-inch version costs $ 530.
