Dell XPS 27 Review: An All-in-One PC With Game-Changing Audio
The Dell XPS 27 is the latest all-in-one PC that is set to change the game. Dell has been focusing on improving its product lines not only regarding the features but also their designs. Leading the charge for the company is the XPS line. Not only is the XPS 27 one of the better designed devices to come out lately of Dell's stable, it also sports some pretty impressive features including a 4K touch display and audio system that is primed to set the new standard.
The Dell XPS 27 all-in-one PC which debuted at the CES 2017, makes use of the ten-speaker Jack Joseph Puig signature series sound system that is powered by dynamic amplifiers that can generate 50W per channel. Six of the speakers are visible under the screen which gives it the notion that it is serious with its sound quality and performance. Two down-firing speakers and two passive radiators complete the ten-speaker system.
As for the new design, the XPS 27 comes in a CNC-aluminum frame giving it a sleek yet serious look. The frame envelopes the 4K touch display along with the built-in soundbar. The 27-inch Ultra HD display comes with a 3849 x 2160 pixel resolution and 300 nits.
Tom's Guide noted the impressive articulating stand of the XPS 27. The flexible stand can tilt the display forward by 5 degrees and backward by 60 degrees. The screen can also be laid flat which is perfect for drawing and other tasks.
Inside the good-looking Dell XPS 27 is Intel's 6th-generation Core i7-6700 though it will likely run on the latest Kaby Lake processor later on according to Hot Hardware. It comes with a discrete AMD Radeon GPU, 16GB DDR4 and 512GB solid state drive.
The Dell XPS 27 without touchscreen display and articulating hinges is priced at $1,349 which may be a bit too expensive for some especially considering that the 24-inch iMac is available for only $1,099. The version with a touchscreen is better equipped to challenge Apple's own 27-inch desktop. The Dell XPS 27 all-in-one more than holds its ground against the iMac in question which sports a 5K display and is less expensive at $2,299 against the latter's $2,799 price tag.
