Dell XPS One strips the tease

Dell finally released its all-in-one PC for pre-sale on Friday

After teasing the public for a while, Dell on Friday revealed an all-in-one computer that combines the monitor and CPU in one box.

The XPS One will be available as a system with only a widescreen display, a mouse and a keyboard. Processing capabilities and other components will be fixed inside the display.

The systems will be available in four designs with the monikers indicating the target audience: the Essential One, the Music One, the Performance One and the Entertainment One.

All systems will come with 20-inch displays, Intel Core 2 Duo processors, Windows Vista Home Premium, hard drives starting at 250G bytes, 2G bytes of memory, a TV tuner and remote control. The Music One system will come with wireless headphones for music enthusiasts.

The Entertainment One, designed as a home media center, will include a Blu-ray high-definition DVD burner. It will also come with an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro graphics card with 256M bytes of memory.

Popularized by Apple's iMac, all-in-one PCs also have been released by Hewlett-Packard and Gateway.

Dell had planned to release the XPS One on Monday but posted details about it early online. The company declined to offer any additional information about the computer on Friday.

An XPS One was visible onstage behind Michael Dell, CEO of Dell, when he addressed an audience at the OpenWorld conference earlier this week. He didn't give details about the product at the time, only saying it would be released next week.

The product is on pre-sale on Dell's Web site.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
