I -- rich brown senior editor for CNET they're gonna get a look at the Dell XPS 127. This is a 27 inch on one PC from Dell and its unique mostly because it has a 2560. By 1440. Resolution display. Enix has the highest resolution windows based on one and it's in line with the point seven inch iMac. So Dell sells the system and for fixed configurations this is -- 1599. Model the middle of the pack. Cause of the core I five CPU from Intel's third generation chips. Eight gigs of ram a terabyte hard drive in an Nvidia GeForce 640 -- graphics chip. Only standard dvd burner in the system that feels a little bit and congress for the rest the market given that Blu-ray is so widely available. -- Blu-ray have to spend for the 1999. Version of the system. Otherwise the system is pretty fast and given its high resolution modern the fact that it's unique it's actually pretty fairly priced. And this is not a touch screen that most modern on ones but the benefit -- the high resolution is that you can get lots of windows on screen and everything just looks crisper.
