Dell XPS 18: The desktop/tablet hybrid you'll probably buy

Desktops
-Hi, I'm Dan Ackerman. And we are here taking a look at the Dell XPS 18. All right, at first glance this looks like a computer on kind of a smaller side of the All-in-One Spectrum, got an 18-inch screen, but then you grab it here, you lift up and look at that, is has actually got a battery in it, which means it's a really large tablet or a smaller to midsize All-in-One depending on how you look at it. We've actually seen that couple of these systems before, so it only has a VIAO pack 20 with a 20-inch screen, Asus has a transformer All-in-One, also with an 18-inch screen. Of that first kinda grouping of these, this is definitely the best to date, because the Sony Tablet, even though it's only a little bit bigger, weighs like 12 pounds. This thing is under 5 pounds whereas the Asus version, when you remove it from its dock it switches over into Android mode. It's very confusing. Don't even get me started about that. Now $1,300 that's kind of a lot to pay for an 18-inch owned one especially one with laptop parts and integrated graphics, you do get this big weighted stand right here that activate power charging dock as well and they throw in a keyboard and mouse. You could trade down to less expensive versions that skip the dock. You could buy it separately and that have like a core-- a 3 CPU as opposed to an i5 or even an Intel Pentium class CPU which I would really avoid at all cost. Now you aren't paying a premium to be one of the first people on the block with a combination tablets/All-in-One. There's a few reasons why you'd wanna do that. You can just pick this up and take it into another room of your house that show someone the video or share some photos or do some table top gaming which is actually kind of fun. I really wouldn't take this out of the coffee shop or anything, it's too big. And the battery lasts about 4 hours. Not really enough for carry it with you style computing. Just like almost every laptop now has a touch screen, whilst last year it didn't, I think we might be looking at a positive future for pretty much every All-in-One becomes a detachable screen with a battery built into it. Now it hasn't happened yet but once Intel's next generation of chips comes out, and if people started buying these as opposed to traditional All-in-Ones, I think we're gonna see a continued hybridization of big screen tablet and All-in-One and frankly walking around with a big gigantic tablet is actually kinda fun. I'm Dan Ackerman, and that is the Dell XPS 18.
