Dell is releasing fresh PC updates that uses Intel’s 4th Generation Core processors codenamed “Haswell” and one of the most interesting new product is a 27″ all-in-one (AIO) called Dell XPS27. As the title indicates, it has a very nice display which, in addition of the 2560×1440 resolution, also features wide view angles and an extended color gamut. This is quite an improvement from the previous line of product that wasn’t equipped with such a nice display — Dell says that no competitor has an AIO “PC” with this size/resolution combination.

The articulated dual-hinge arm is also pretty cool: it allows users to tweak the height and in tilt of the computer. This effectively makes it usable in both stand-up position (regular), or in a lower position which may be ideal for a stand-up desk, or as touch-first computer. The whole system is designed to be as clutter-free as possible, and if you don’t need to plug any devices to the computer, you could end up with just a single power cable. Talking about ports, there are quite a few to use: six USB 3.0 and one Thunderbolt (and Ethernet of course!).
Inside, users can opt for a 4th Gen Core i7 at 3.9GHz or a Core i5 at 3.2GHz, up to 16GB of memory, 2TB of HDD, 256GB of SSD and a Blu-Ray or DVD drive. Those who also want to play may be interested by the fact that there is a discrete NVIDIA GT 750M graphics processor in there, so while this may not be a “gaming rig”, it should still be able to play rather decently.
The system comes with a wireless mouse and keyboard, and overall, this is quite an interesting proposition if you want to keep things neat.
