New XPS One features 27-inch screen, Ivy Bridge processor
Dell is refreshing its all-in-one PC offerings with the introduction of the XPS One 27, Inspiron One 23 and Inspiron One 20. The new XPS becomes Dell's largest all-in-one machine and leans towards more high-end components, while both Inspirons are aimed at more budget-conscious family users wanting to save desktop space.
The XPS One 27 has a maximum resolution of 2560x1440 displayable on its 27-inch 16:9 WLED screen, matching the display size and pixel count of Apple's top iMac. Powered by a choice of Ivy Bridge processors, the One 27 also provides options for up to 16GB DD3 RAM, two terabytes of storage, and either Intel HD 4000 or NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M graphics. Waves MaxxAudio 4 powers its built-in Infinity 7.1 surround sound speakers.
The smaller Inspiron One 23 has options for both second- and third-generation Intel processors, Intel HD 4000 or 1GB DDR3 AMD Radeon HD graphics, up to eight gigabytes RAM, and two terabytes of storage. The Inspiron One 20 has options for one terabyte of storage and up to six gigabytes of ram, but is restricted to second-generation Intel processors. The 20-inch display can show an image at a resolution of 1600x900, slightly below the 23-inch model's 1920x1080 HD output.
All systems have options for Blu-ray and an internal TV tuner, and come with an integrated webcam and Bluetooth as standard features. The XPS One 27 will start from $1,400, alongside the basic Inspiron One 23 at $750 and the entry-level Inspiron One 20 at $530. All three machines are available today in countries in Asia, with a US release in the coming weeks.
