Dell joins Apple, Sony and Gateway with a Core 2 Duo-based all-in-one design

All-in-one computers have been quite popular with Mac users since the introduction of the original iMac back in 1998. Apple continues to sell its iMac computers which now feature Core 2 Duo processor and 20” or 24” LCD screens. On the PC side of things, however, all-in-one designs haven't fared so well.

That hasn't stopped companies such as Sony with its VAIO LT and Gateway with its "One" from trying to test the waters Intel Core 2 Duo based machines -- with 22" and 19" LCD displays respectively.

Dell too is looking to throw its support behind all-in-one PC designs with the XPS ONE. The machine features a 20" WSXGA display and Intel Core 2 Duo power -- base machines come with an E4500 processor while higher-end units get the E6550.

Standard features across the board include 2GB of DDR2 memory, a slot-loading 16X dual-layer DVD burner, hybrid analog/digital TV tuner with remote, 8-in-1 media reader and Windows Vista Premium. Base systems come with integrated Intel graphics and a 250GB hard drive, while the range-topping machine features an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro and a 500GB hard drive.

Those interested in the XPS ONE can purchase a system direct from Dell's website today, but systems aren't expected to ship until November 27. Dell provides four XPS ONEs to suit your needs: The Essential One, The Music One, The Performance One and The Entertainment One. Pricing for the machines begin at $1,499, $1,748, $1,999 and $2,399 respectively.

But I see an all-in-one as something that someone would get that either

1. Desperately needed the space on their desk, which you can always get a REALLY nice desk for $2k with plenty of room.

2. Don't care about the fact that you can't touch or see any of the components that make your computer function, you can't try repairs, upgrades, or anything. Can't even look at it. basically in my opinion this is for the VERY basic user, a user that doesn't even want to see the computer components because they don't "like how they look" or "don't know what they do" or "they look too complicated" etc.

3. Or finally, don't care that its from apple, that its a mac, don't care about overheating issues, or anything concerning the computer hardware world. They just want to get on their mac and sit at the whatever you call it and do nothing. Blue screen and hard reboot, whatever you do on an overheating no tower mac.

To me it looks like another one of those things someone should buy just to smash with a sledgehammer for video for one of those bash websites.

2 is probably most customers of any major OEM.

When they want to fix it they take it to where they bought it.
