Dell XPS 18 hands-on: 18-inch tablet? Portable all-in-one PC? Delusional?

Dell XPS 18 hands-on: 18-inch tablet? Portable all-in-one PC? Delusional?

You have to give the PC OEMs some credit: they're really milking the touch potential of Windows 8, and hulking great "home tablets" seem to be the finger-fetish of the moment. Latest to join the trend is Dell with the XPS 18, an 18.4-inch slab of dockable multitouch, with the company would rather you think of as a portable all-in-one PC than as a tablet in the traditional sense. Intended to be toted round the home, rather than outside of it, the XPS 18 packs up to a Core i7 processor and a battery good for a surprising five hours of off-the-AC use. We caught up with Dell for an early play.

ASUS Transformer AiO is a world’s first: Windows 8/Android hybrid madness

ASUS Transformer AiO is a world’s first: Windows 8/Android hybrid madness

At Mobile World Congress last month we had a magical experience with ASUS that noone will ever forget - but one device we saw seems to have been looked over until now: the ASUS Transformer AiO. This device was shown, but not exactly detailed - this week we're learning why. Apparently this machine - bear with me now - is both a Windows 8 desktop and an Android tablet - both running separate processors.

IDC: PC market to decline yet again

IDC: PC market to decline yet again

It looks like 2013 will be another bad year for PCs. Shipments of PCs is expected to decline yet again this year, but only by about 1.3%. The IDC reports that this is due to the lack of enthusiastic response to Windows 8, and also due to the struggling economy. While IDC reports that PC sales are going downhill, it looks like smartphone sales are still growing at a rapid pace and at a pace that won't slow down until around the year 2017.

HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart Review

HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart Review

HP dove into the Windows 8 ecosystem without hesitation, and the results of that effort are tons of new laptops and desktop computers, some of which are the company’s new ENVY TouchSmart all-in-one series of Windows 8 machines, which we first heard about back in September. They have an entry-level 20-inch model, as well as a 23-inch variant that we took for a spin. It has a fast quad-core processor, quick graphics, a lot of system memory, and a huge hard drive, not to mention the 1080p touchscreen. It’ll cost you, though: around $1,700 for this particular build, but the ENVY 23 TouchSmart (model d060qd) definitely has all the specs to make anyone happy. However, is it right for everyone? Let’s find out.

Vizio's new Windows 8 Tablet PC was definitely one of the devices that caught our interest during CES 2013, but the company isn't content with stopping at just tablets. In fact, Vizio seems to have become very enthusiastic about Windows 8, introducing new lines of touch-based notebooks and all-in-one PCs that are ready to take full advantage of the operating system. We got to spend a little bit of time with them when we stopped by for a visit with Vizio, and starting right off, we have to say that we like what the company was showing off.

Acer Aspire 7600U Review

Acer Aspire 7600U Review

All-in-one PCs have always seemed a little weird, at least to me. They don't take up as much space as a traditional computer with a tower and a monitor, but they're not exactly portable. They also tend to be pretty expensive, though the hardware hidden away behind the screen isn't always the best. With the new Acer Aspire 7600U, things get even more strange, with this particular all-in-one sporting a 27-inch touchscreen to go along with Windows 8, which comes installed from the get-go. It's certainly impressive from a design perspective, but can the hardware inside keep the warm and fuzzy feelings going, or is this PC a little too underwhelming to justify it's expensive price tag? Read on to find out.

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple doesn't change things for the sake of change, and that's why we've had to wait a few years for a redesign of the iMac. When a fresh model does arrive, though, it arrives in style: for 2012, the iMac is slimmer than ever, with a crisp new casing that borrows aerospace construction methods and iPhone display technology to wrap together a beautiful, slim computer that's pleasing to the eye whether or not it's powered up. Still, as Apple's mainstream desktop, the new iMac has to perform, too, and with space at a premium there are some interesting choices to be made as to what goes inside. Read on for the full SlashGear review.
