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.

RE: Maybe better than the iMac

And without upgrade possibilities :)

... But I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Some people want to spend a bit extra to get a stylish and compact computer. That's one reason why the iMac has been succesfull. Not all people are engineers who constantly tweak their ugly server towers and don't care how noisy/ugly it is.

I think that's a pretty nice looking computer. I'm getting a bit tired of the brushed aluminum look. This sort of reminds me of Samsung's LCD TVs.
