Dell introduces XPS One 27

Dell has today introduced a new all-in-one computer in the XPS range, the XPS One 27. As the name suggests, it features a 27-inch display, which has a 2560x1440 resolution with LED backlighting. The computer will ship with the choice of new two Ivy Bridge processors, the Core i5-3450s or the Core i7-3770s. Intel's HD 4000 integrated GPU will come as standard, but there's the option to add NVIDIA's GT 640M GPU with 2GB of RAM also.

The system comes with 4GB of RAM as standard, but can accommodate up to 16GB. A 1TB HDD is onboard, with the option for 2TB, and users can also spring for a 32GB mSATA provided by Intel in order to utilize Smart Response. The optical drive isn't quite dead yet, with Dell opting to throw in a slot-loading DVD drive, and there's the option for Blu-ray too.

As for creature comforts, the screen includes a built-in webcam with a dual digital microphone for Skype calls, WiFi b/g/n as well as Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, and a myriad of ports including four USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, HDMI v1.4 in and out, SPDIF, 3.5mm headphone and microphone jack, plus an 8-in-1 card reader.

The system starts at $1,399 and is shipping in Asia right now. Dell say that the XPS One 27 will be available in the United States "in the coming weeks."
