Dell XPS 8500 is a dream desktop
In case you haven't noticed, I like Dell PCs, and this one might be my favorite desktop ever. Inside, it's clean, uncluttered, and incredibly easy to work with. That sort of easy upgradeability is the point of a desktop machine, and Dell gets that.
This box has a 3rd Generation i7 processor and a couple of SSDs, making it wicked fast. It's also been flawless with every build of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and even has a good selection of Windows 8 drivers. The killer feature in Windows 8.1 for me is its vastly improved multi-monitor support, which is ideal for desktops. I might replace this box someday, but it won't be soon.
Dell's XPS 18 successfully mashes up tablet, all-in-one
The first time I saw this device, I was skeptical. An 18-inch tablet? On a stand?
Surprisingly, it works. If you think of this device as an all-in-one that can move into another room when needed, it makes more sense. This is a review unit, and I'll have more thorough coverage coming up shortly. But suffice it to say this is a good PC that anyone looking for an all-in-one should consider.
Dell's Inspiron 2320: a boring, cheap, reliable all-in-one
Dell's Inspiron line is its budget brand. This box is one I purchased from the Dell Outlet as a second office PC. It's got a touchscreen,l a decent webcam, and an unassuming design. It won't win any awards for its looks, but it gets the job done. And it's refreshing to see how little crapware came with it.
