  1. Dell XPS 18 review

    Dell XPS 18 review

    The XPS 18 is a big full Windows 8 18.4-inch tablet. But that's not all - it comes with a dock so you can also use it as a desktop PC-replacement.

    Dell previously had a 27-inch XPS, but this new Windows 8 model brings a couple of new tricks to the party, including a huge 27-inch touchscreen.

    Don't be fooled by the compact size of the case - the Dell Inspiron 530 is more powerful than it looks. In fact, it crams in more drives than any other system here: one 18x DVD writer, a DVD-ROM to make life easier when copying discs and a couple of 320GB drives for good measure.

    We're still recovering from the battering to our self-esteem that the last XPC gave us. It was designed to humble, to make men feel like boys. A glance at the core spec of its follow-up, however, shows that Dell has raised the bar to a whole new level

    This system marks the end of Dell's Intel-only approach to CPUs with its first-ever use of an AMD processor in a consumer PC. You're only getting an Athlon 64 3800, but it does signal Dell's intention to give the end user more choice

    So you want to be dominated, do you? Dirty little puppy. Then short of taping a cat o' nine tails to your DVD slot so that it gently flogs you when it opens and closes, this is definitely the gaming rig for you

    Dell has recently cast aside its tradition of using Intel processors and built a series of PCs sporting the chips of rival manufacturer AMD. This machine is one of the first AMDbased systems to adopt the BTX form factor.

    Now and again there are systems that come along that make you rethink what a PC is. There was a spate of such machines five years ago that challenged the notion of the desktop PC, but lacked the performance...
