You know how some of us have been advised to specialize in a particular field, simply because if you want to do something, make sure you go all out and do it without any hesitation, and be the best there is to it, too. Hybrid devices might prove to be the future, but right now, it is still in its infancy, as evident by the $900 Dell XPS 18 which functions as an all-in-one PC and an 18-inch tablet. Those who are in the know would most probably see this to be a direct competitor to the Sony VAIO Tap 20, where Dell’s XPS 18 will feature an integrated battery with five hours of runtime, and a design that allows it to work as a desktop or simply to lay flat.
As for its hardware specifications, your eyes will definitely appreciate the 18.4-inch display that does Full HD resolution, and when you translate it for tablet use, the 4.85-pound frame is not going to be too kind on your biceps. I suppose it will primarily be used as a desktop, and only once in a blue moon will you see it function as a tablet – as and when necessary, of course. The $900 base price will see a dual-core Pentium ULV processor run the show, accompanied by a 320GB hard drive.RELATED
