Dell introduced the XPS One all-in-one PC in the summer of 2012, but gave it a late upgrade in the fall of 2012, adding a touchscreen and the professional version of Windows 8.
The top-of-the-line One boasts an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a 2TB hard drive with 32GB of SSD memory for faster booting, built-in Bluetooth and a DVD/Blu-ray disc drive. The 27-inch display packs the pixels, offering a resolution of 2560 x 1440. It commands a premium price of $2,600 although less expensive models that ditch the Blu-ray drive and pack a slower processor are also available.
Initial reviews for Dell's all-in-one upgrade were positive -- it appears Dell has nailed the design with a beautiful display. While the XPS One was praised for its handling of basic computing tasks and media playback, reviewers warned that it's not the computer of choice for anyone in need of graphics-intensive work, such as video-editing.
