Dell XPS One 20


$1,199.00 Released February, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Includes some quality added technological touches: TV tuner, wireless n and bluetooth, 2MP webcam and microphone, 7200rpm drive. A good alternative to the Apple iMac - includes similar specifications at a competitive price. Sleek and compact with enough performance for the majority of consumers.

The Cons:20" model can only display 720p. Difficult to upgrade or service yourself. Dell's design/engineering is still inferior to Apple.

The Dell XPS One 20 is an expensive, top of the line desktop computer that falls into a very narrow category of machines due to the fact that the computer hardware is built in to a 20" LCD monitor.

Product Shot 2 The Dell XPS One series prices range from $999-$1,999 depending on the chosen features and monitor size preference; the price is right around that of a completely decked out conventional desktop PC or average laptop. The Dell XPS One 20 machine comes as a 20" monitor equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 processor, Windows Vista Home Premium or Ultimate, an 8X Slot load CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW), 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz in 2 DIMM slots, a 250GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s Hard Drive (7200RPM) with DataBurst Cache technology, integrated video and audio and a 1 year limited hardware warranty with in home service repair after a remote diagnosis. It can also be ordered in either Hot Rod Red or Piano Black colors. There are two seperate XPS One 20 models; one has an MSRP of $999 and comes with all the features listed above and the other has an MSRP of $1,199 and comes with Microsoft Office Home and Student software additions. The Dell XPS One 20 desktop PC was released in February, 2008.
