First Look: Dell Inspiron 23; A slim all-in-one with gaming chops

1:57 /

A slim system with basic gaming chops and a screen that tilts down flat.

I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the brand-new Dell Inspiron 23. Dell says, this is the thinnest 23-inch all-in-one ever. It certainly is very thin, partially, that's because a lot of the ports and connections are here and it's big, heavy-weighted base was also pretty hefty. The arm right here, that arm actually let you adjust the screen of reasonable amount to go down like this and up like this but more importantly turn the entire thing flat so you have almost what I called a tabletop PC, although, it's kind of lifted up from whatever desk you have it on. Why would you wanna do this? You know, board games are kind of fun this way or missing around on a map. I certainly had a lot of fun with some of the other tabletop PCs that we tried. So you may not use it like this all the time but it's cool to have that option. It's especially frustrating when some all-in-ones bend down almost that far but don't give you that full flat plane like that. More importantly, this new all-in-one from Dell as Intel's latest Haswell processor the 4th generation core I series and you can even get optional discreet graphics like we have in our test unit right here. The AMD graphics are kind of middle of the road but you can still do some basic gaming with them, which I definitely appreciate. The screen is a full 1920x1080 screen that's important even on a 23-inch monitor like this and the Inspiron 23 starts at $999. We've got a couple upgrades including a better processor and that discreet graphics card that brings you up to $1399 for this particular model. You know, for about that price and a little bit more, you can move in just some fancier brands and Inspiron Dell's XPS 27 actually starts at I think $1599. And with that, you get a super high res screen but if you build one of those out the way you'd really want it, it would be a lot more expensive. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Dell Inspiron 23.
