XPS One 27 promises almost twice the pixel density of any other 27-inch AIO

Dell has unveiled three new XPS products at IFA 2012. The new machines include the XPS 10 tablet, XPS Duo 12, and the XPS One 27. The XPS 10 is a 10-inch tablet built to support Windows RT. The tablet provides an intuitive touch capability, long battery life, and a mobile keyboard dock for enhanced content creation and productivity. The tablet will use an ARM processor, but exactly what processor will be used in the tablet is unknown. 
 
The next of the new devices is the XPS Duo 12 convertible ultrabook. This machine has a touchscreen display that folds back making it into a tablet. Dell says that the machine provides the full functionality of an ultraportable laptop with a keyboard with convenience of the tablet. The screen offers full HD resolution with sharp and crisp text for reading and clear and lifelike photos and video. The screen is covered with Gorilla Glass and the computer is made using machined aluminum and carbon fiber.
 
The final new machine is the XPS One 27. Dell says that this machine offers nearly twice the pixel density of any other 27-inch AIO on the market. The machine is designed for creative professionals requiring a super-high resolution display and high-performance graphics for multimedia creation. The 27-inch Wide Quad HD display used on the machine sounds very impressive.

“The XPS 10, XPS Duo 12 and XPS One 27 represent the culmination of a deep understanding of the ‘Bring Your Own Device’ movement and insights gained from both our consumer and business customers,” said Sam Burd, global vice president, PC product group at Dell. “The new set of products Dell unveiled today represents a milestone in our design and approach to user experience. Our vision for our XPS line of computers is not just about the device or technology, it’s about achieving the perfect balance of amazing design, end user productivity and IT enablement.”
 
All three machines will be available when Windows 8 launches at the end of October with pricing announced closer to launch.

Double pixel density of ANY other AIO?

They're ignoring the iMac which has the same display.

Yup, just like us buyers do. If you don't want to run Mac OS the Mac isn't a good option.

Given that Apple has >90% of PC's over $1000 market and that you can't find a 27" AIO for less than that, I'd say you are wrong about buyers ignoring the iMac. iMac can run Windows and IIRC has the best video card in an AIO there is. Of course I'd wait for the refresh since they haven't updated to Ivy Bridge yet.

If you want an AIO, iMac is legitimately good even if you just look at the hardware alone. Personally, I wouldn't want an AIO when I can get a 27" WQHD IPS monitor for $400.

I think you are missing the point entirely. Mac is basically irrelevant in the desktop computer market. So irrelevant that they don't count on most peoples lists. >90% of the over $1000 market is an extreme skew of fractured data.

The bottom line is Mac garners 6% of the global PC market.

Not when it comes to the 27" AIO market.

In any and all desktop and laptops, Mac is totally irrelevant. Its sort of like "oh yeah, that is those funny little toys that no-one uses.

This article is not about "all laptops and all desktops", it's about 27" AIO's, where Apple is still very relevant.

If you say so.

It does have a great screen. Too bad its attached to a Mac

They're fantastic machines, had mine for almost three years and its been a champ of a production machine. Fast, quiet, tony footprint. Plus if I want to play games I have my DIY PC (not Dell, gross) plugged into it, best of both worlds.

that's exactly the problem. If this wonderful expensive machine is so great why did you have to build a second system to play games on?


RE: Double pixel density of ANY other AIO?

Because I use OS X for work. I have OS X specific applications and the UI is significantly better for productivity and managing windows, VMs, and virtual workspaces. The productivity gap is widening even further after the usability disaster that is Windows 8 (forget Metro, even the new Windows Explorer is awful). No comparison between that and 10.8.

The DIY PC is an old hobby that I'll never break, I love doing a rebuild every couple years. Shame the OS I can put on it is so-so, but all I really do is play games on it anyway so it doesn't really matter.

OSX apps, that is that, but I would highly doubt you are getting better productivity on an all in one than I am out of Win7. I run VM, and remote into alot of servers as well as support alot of apps. I do it all at my desk with 4 LCD's using MS's mouse without borders.

Anyhow, your usage still doesnt make Apple a relevant player. 6% is 6%, its just niche market.

All that can also easily be done in a mac. In fact it's even easier because unlike Windows, you don't even have to install a separate program like putty to ssh into Unix servers in OSX.

That and a PC will get you full functionality ;) (Gaming and Enterprise/Corporate)

Those two don't go together. The iMac is being used more and more because of its small footprint, no noise, great screen, doesn't have cords everywhere. Everything built in without having to shop for multiple components like speakers, camera, bluetooth, lcd, etc.

They are very simple to deploy, no bloatware, easy to clone, ship, and set up.

When you shop at regular places like Dell, CDW, etc. the cost is sometimes cheaper than getting a regular desktop when you add up all the components. But the cost of setting up PC's due to labor makes them much higher.

There isn't one iMac that I've deployed that has had a problem. I can't say the same with Dell and Lenovo.

Not to mention I can sell the iMacs at least 60-70% of what they are bought for. Can't do that with a Dell desktop.

Yeah, resale value is huge. Cost of upgrading my Macs is minimal, cost of upgrading my PCs is a lot

I am getting better productivity because the OS X UI is a much better desktop environment for workspace and desktop management. Simple.

As for being a niche, who cares? OS X having the marketshare that it does is the product of higher cost of entry, it is not a reflection on quality. Windows can be run on a $300 machine, OS X cannot, big difference. Back in the day, IRIX had a percentage of a percentage of the market, but that's because it was only used by VFX companies. That doesn't mean that it was a bad platform.

Can you please tell me where I can find a 27" WQHD monitor with an IPS panel for $400 or less..?

I'd really like to know..

There are also tons of them on ebay, all shipped from South Korea I think. You can get a barebones one for $299 up to a $450 with all sorts of inputs and individually checked for backlight bleed and zero dead pixel guarantee.

One dead link, and the second costs $450 (12.5% higher) and won't be available for 6 weeks.

The link works if you go to it directly (copy and paste), it's still available:

There's also this on eBay, type it in directly:

You come on a site like this and recommend a Mac? Get a clue, no one here wants lame Apple products. Most of us are enthusiats and only care about the best hardware out there, Macs are not even on that radar. We certainly don't support non-upgradeable, non-fixable, closed standards, old tech.

What is an iMac?


By TakinYourPoints on 8/30/2012 10:11:43 PM , Rating: 2
And the iMac will probably cost less than the XPS, that or the XPS will have a comparable or lower price but with compromised internal specs. Plus no OS/hardware integration on the same level.

Its always been like that with the Dell all-in-ones relative to the iMacs and I won't be surprised if it happens again here.


XPS? not really

I know the XPS line has been getting dumbed down over the last several years, but it just seems wrong to see the letters on a POS tablet.

POS how..? Are you privy to some secret specs, or have some hands-on experience with the unreleased device..?

Certainly, Dell has been doing horribly the last few years.. though, it pretty much started when they attempted to prematurely withdraw from the mobile market in which it had released many earth-shaking products years before, from some of the first fully functional pc tablets (half a decade before the iPad) to the most successful pda lineup (axim series). Had they pushed through the early smartphone crunch like HTC did, they'd have been easily poised to be a major player in the mobile market.

But, still.. why so negative about a product with no released features or specs.. really, nothing but a photo..?
