In a world where the new Dell XPS One 27 didn't exist, the Asus ET2700 might be considered a very good all-in-one PC, and even an alternative to the 27-inch iMac. But compared with the gdgt Must Have XPS One, the ET2700 comes up short, mainly due to its lower resolution display, and a few missing touches, such as HDMI out, which lets you add a second display to your XPS One setup. That said, the ET2700 has many of the same features that make the XPS One an attractive option, including HDMI input, which lets you use its display to power a cable box, gaming console, or other peripheral; a Blu-ray drive; USB 3.0 ports; and an optional HD tuner. That makes the ET2700 worth considering, if you can find it at a low enough price. However, with the two currently selling for roughly the same price, the XPS One 27 remains a far better choice.
