Dell XPS One 27 AiO Desktop Features Intel Ivy Bridge Chips, Sleek Design
Dell has introduced three new all-in-one (AiO) PCs featuring the latest Intel Ivy Bridge processors, minimized footprints with one-cord designs and what it's calling "timeless" aesthetics that it hopes will continue to appeal to users over the long term in office and home computing environments.
The XPS One 27 is the highest-end and largest AiO that Dell has ever made. It features a 27-inch display with a Full Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels -- the equivalent of four times the clarity of a 720p HDTV. Dell is expecting potential buyers to include photographers and video editors, whether professional or hobbyists, for the One 27, and to support such activities it has included Intel third-generation quad-core processors with Intel Turbo Boost Technology.
The XPS One 27 also offers Intel HD 400 graphics, with optional Nvidia GeForge GT 640M with 2GB of DDR5; 4GB of standard memory that's configurable up to 16GB, with 2 DIMM (dual in-line memory module) slots; the option of a 2TB 3.5-inch 7200RPM hard drive or an optional HDD plus a 32GB mSATA SSD with Intel Smart Response Technology; a slot-loading DVD drive with optional Blu-Ray disc combo drive; and a full HD Webcam with dual digital microphone array for video calls.
Dell's two new Inspiron models, the One 23 and One 20, are family PCs -- AiOs for kitchen counters and living room desks, again with clean, one-cord designs and wireless keyboards and mice that slide under the displays to minimize clutter.
All three AiOs are now available in Asia and will begin shipping to the United States and other countries, says Dell, "in the coming weeks." The XPS One 27 will start at $1,399; the Inspiron One 23 at $749; and the Inspiron One 20 at $529.
