Most all-in-one PCs get compared to the Apple iMac, and almost all end up falling short in the comparison. The Dell XPS One 27 may actually change that. The PC is built around a high-resolution 2560 x 1440 27-inch display, and has an HDMI port to add a second display. It includes most of the features one would expect on a current-generation PC, including USB 3.0 ports, the option to add a fast Intel Ivy Bridge processor, and an optional Blu-ray drive. It handles graphics very well, and includes a range of entertainment-oriented features, such as a built-in HDTV tuner, and both HDMI and coaxial inputs, which let you use the XPS One's display with a cable box or other peripheral. show more

There are more 27-inch all-in-one desktops these days, but very few are done right. The Dell XPS One 2710 manages to put almost every technology and feature we're looking for in a compact stylish chassis.

Considering that the Dell XPS One 27 is a big, sturdy all-in-one desktop that’s every bit as strong in function as in form, you would be foolish to let the high price scare you away.

While we have a few minor quibbles with the Dell XPS 27 Touch's design, we think this is the best all-in-one on the market today.

Dell has largely fixed the aesthetic and connectivity from the previous generation, and the screen quality is excellent. If you're not going to push the system too hard the XPS One 2710 is probably worth considering.

The Dell XPS One is a very pretty, powerful machine, and it will certainly add style and class to any room you put it in. Unfortunately, it’s like they say: if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. This AIO has multiple issues if you plan on using it, rather than just looking at it.

We don't usually get excited about all-in-one desktop PCs because they're all usually much the same. However, the Dell XPS One 27 has so much going for it, it's hard not to be impressed.

This machine will be costing you right around $1300 USD, and for that price you’re getting one beast of a computer. The Dell XPS One 27 with multi-touch display is easily one of the most solidly put together total packages running Windows 8 today.

I bought the One for two reasons. a) I needed another Windows machine for home and b) to see how much of a difference in quality, stability and other factors a maker like Dell - who does not have frothing-at-the-mouth adoring-even-in-tech-press-hangers-on that Apple does - can bring to...

I recently decided it was time to switch up my home computing setup and bought a fully loaded Dell XPS 27” computer. I replaced the following: Dell 17” Studio 1747 laptop (about two years old) and HP 23” LCD dual monitor (about a year old), both still in great shape and I’ll be trying to sell...
