The one makes the difference
At the beginning is especially confusion: what is actually the new all-in one PC, the Dell XPS series? XPS 27 or XPS one 27? In the shop, contradicts Dell himself and uses both names. To shed light on the confusion, I speak about XPS 27 (2720) for the new version with HASWELL processor, I’ll refer to the older version as XPS One 27 (2710) . I hope this works better.
New: Dell XPS 27 with HASWELL processor
The XPS one 27 we had in the test in February and were on the whole very impressed – especially as a challenger for the iMac. In our experience, this Challenger worked well status.
It is not surprising, therefore, that the XPS one 27 next to the Alienware 12 convertible belonged notebooks and the XPS first devices, which got a HASWELL-processor upgrade. But about the HASWELL processor, has changed quite a bit more:
New XPS 27 with more colors and faster graphic board
The display of its new all-in one flagship, Dell has ratcheted above all of the colours and contrasts. The resolution is like the predecessor model 2550 x 1440 pixel and thus has the same resolution as the current iMac. The multi touch display is frameless and can with up to ten fingers are served mainly by default installed. There is the XPS 27 no longer without having touch function. In addition, the XPS 27 has an adjustable stand, which can be moved up and down, both from right to left.
The 2 GB nVidia GeForce GT 640 M of the XPS one 27 has been replaced now in the XPS 27 against a NVIDIA GeForce GT 750 M . The performance boost is here almost 30% as the colleagues at game-debate.com because I used a serious benchmark comparison between the Ivy bridge processors still haven’t figured processors and the new HASWELL, must I stay here guilty figures – we hope but again on a tester!
The new XPS 27 interfaces: with telephone connection?
At the interfaces has not done much interfaces XPS in the Dell XPS 27, the power supply is also integrated, there are now six held so far 4 USB 3.0 ports and of course, there is still a card reader. And no: the XPS 27 does not have a telephone line! This is a free translation of the English term for “Jack”: “phone jack”. Accordingly has the XPS 27 also on headphone and microphone jacks.
Comparison of XPS 27 (2710) vs. XPS one 27 (2710)
For the comparison, it was not so easy to find an identical configuration. However, the two presented here are fairly close together in the basic configuration (HDD, memory). The decision is relatively easy in this case. If you want to save a little more, should get a XPS one 27 without touchscreen. Otherwise is very clear to see that the baton has been handed over in the confrontation.
