Here in the first few months after Microsoft introduced Windows 8 to the world, we're still looking for the perfect set of homes for this touch-friendly operating system - and in the Dell XPS One 27 (Touch Screen enabled model 2710), we may have found the best all-in-one solution yet. This beast works with a 27-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution (Quad HD) display ready for 10-finger touch on an articulating stand. This stand will allow you to move 60 degrees, nearly flat to an ever-so-slightly forward-leaning position - your choice! The Dell XPS One 27 is a machine that comes in several different iterations - and you may have seen it in the past without an articulating stand or a touchscreen. This version is the newest and, of course, greatest of the pack with a relatively massive 19.32 x 26.14 inch chassis with depth ranging from 1.25 inches to 2.82 inches. This beast has been called competition for the newest iMac, but as you'll see in our iMac 27-inch (2012) review, aside from the “all-in-one” name, these computers are altogether different, essentially top to bottom. This XPS monster weighs in at 35.16 pounds as you'll see plainly in the hands-on video above.
The Dell XPS One 27 Touch ($2,599.99 list) is a high-end all-in-one desktop PC that gets Windows 8 right. It starts off by helping you learn how to use the new operating system (and let's face it, Win 8 is new to most people); plus its touch interface makes sense in the new tiled Start screen environment. Add a speedy Core i7 processor and feature set that lets you run faster and farther than other all-in-one PCs, and you'll see why we chose the Dell XPS One 27 Touch as our new high-end all-in-one desktop Editors' Choice, sharing the title with the Apple iMac 27-inch (Late 2012). It has the power, it has the features, and it's got the touch. From the front, the XPS One 27 Touch looks a lot like Dell's older non-touch model, at least until you adjust its height. Both systems sport 27-inch 2,560 by 1,440 (a.k.a., QHD) screens. Per its moniker, the XPS One 27 Touch has a 10-finger capacitive touch screen built into its chassis. The most prominent difference between the two is apparent when you look at the system from the side: The XPS One 27 Touch has a two-hinge support arm that not only governs tilt, but also allows a range of height adjustment, which is more versatile than a single-hinge arm that doesn't have height adjustments.
Earlier this year, we took a look at Dell's non-touchscreen version of the XPS One 27. Now Dell's pretty all-in-one is back, with slightly updated specs, Windows 8 Professional, and, of course, a touchscreen. This version of the One is as gorgeous as ever, with the exact same design as its predecessor, and its Quad HD screen looks even better with multi-touch. But now that Windows 8 is out, just about every single computer out there has a touchscreen—so how does the One hold up? Our review model, which costs $2600 as configured, has a third-generation Intel Core i7-3770S processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 2TB hard drive (alongside a 32GB SSD boot drive). This all-in-one also has a discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 640M graphics card, built-in Bluetooth 4.0, and a slot-loading DVD-RW/Blu-ray combo drive. The XPS One runs Windows 8 Professional. Performance In PCWorld's WorldBench 8 benchmark tests, the XPS One scores a very good 91 out of 100. This means that the One is just nine percent slower than our testing model, which sports a third-generation Intel Core i5-3570K desktop processor, 8GB of RAM, and a discrete Nvidia desktop-class graphics card.
The release of Windows 8 has led to a resurgence in all-in-one PCs such as the Dell XPS One 27 Touch. While Windows 7 was an excellent desktop operating system, it sat awkwardly on touchscreens, which prevented all-in-ones such as the MSI Wind Top AE2210 and the Sony Vaio L Series from reaching their full potential. Things were even worse when manufacturers slapped their own clunky touchscreen interfaces over Windows 7. With Windows 8, Microsoft has built an operating system with touch interfaces at the forefront, which means that navigating the operating system by touch alone is now a much more pleasurable experience in both the new Windows 8 Start Screen and apps, and in the more traditional desktop mode.Mobile components have also become smaller and yet more powerful at the same time. This matters because the insides of a slim all-in-one computer can resemble the innards of a laptop rather than a desktop PC.The improvements in the technology that resides within an all-in-one PCs means they can be slimmer and more attractive - essential for a PC that wants to be part of your living room, rather than hidden away in an office - while running the latest programs and apps with ease.
The premium Dell XPS One 27 all-in-one integrates a 27-inch LED-backlit display with 2560 x 1440 pixel native resolution, an Intel H77 chipset, and an Intel HD 4000 GPU. The all-in-one computer market has been injected with steroids. Back in 2009, the iMac popularized going big with its 27-inch model, and competitors have followed Cupertino's lead. Earlier this year, we reviewed the massive HP Omni 27. Now we've received an equally massive Dell XPS One 27-inch.Like most Dell XPS products, this all-in-one isn't meant to be a budget solution. Its least expensive configuration comes with a price tag of $1,399. For that you receive a Core i5 processor, Intel-integrated graphics and 6GB of RAM. Our review unit came equipped with a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and an Nvidia GT 640M graphics solution, which would run $1,799.That's a lot of money, but this isn't your typical PC. Like the HP Omni 27, the XPS One tries to justify its price with striking design and a wonderful display. The Omni faltered in reaching this goal. Can Dell do better?The rear panel on the XPS One is a nice, curved surface that looks intriguing and feels solid.
