    Good things come to those who wait, especially if the good thing you've been waiting for includes a VR-ready all-in-one. Dell is launching one such machine in the form of the Inspiron 27 7000, which packs all of the ports you'll need to push pixels to an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. The base model packs AMD's Radeon RX560 with 4GB of RAM, but if you're looking to get into VR, it's probably worth opting for the higher-end RX580. The 7000 is a pretty-looking machine, too, taking design cues from the XPS series, with a slim bezel surrounding that 27-inch IPS display. If you're dipping a toe into the virtual world and want to keep your tabletop uncluttered, this machine is probably worth a look.

    Similarly, the company is also pushing out a cheaper all-in-one the Inspiron 24 5000, which comes with a similar design in a smaller body. You'll be staring into a 23.8-inch IPS display on a pedestal stand, but pay a little extra and you can convert it into an articulating arm with a touchscreen for studio-type use. As usual, there are plenty of build-to-order options, letting you swap out the CPU, RAM and HDD, but not the graphics. The only option available is the Radeon RX560 with 4GB of RAM, but then again, you won't be buying this PC for hardcore gaming. Like its bigger sibling, the 24 5000 launches today, albeit with a lower starting price of $700.

    Rounding out Dell's trio of new machines is the Inspiron Gaming Desktop, an enthusiast tower that undercuts Dell's own Alienware line. With the price starting at $600 and an emphasis on AMD internals, it's a nice, reasonably cheap way for folks to get into gaming. You can pick one of three Radeon cards to shove into one (or two) of the dual graphics slots. But if your wallet can stretch a little further, there's also NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of RAM lurking at the top end. As for looks, buyers can opt for a Polar Blue internal LED lighting scheme, which makes its split body design look that little more futuristic. There's no word on when the machine will be out beyond "May," which we're taking to mean soon, given today's date of May 30th.
