Expert review by : Elias Plastiras (pcworld.idg.com.au)

Dell XPS 730

 

A mean machine, but a little lean in the graphics department

4GB RAM, quad-core CPU, fast performance, SLI graphics, room for expansion, quiet, Blu-ray player

Could use faster graphics card options, consumes 66W of electricity even when it's shut down, could use more comprehensive RAID configuration options

Dell XPS 27 Touch review: Looks are everything

 

When it comes to its high-end all-in-one PC lineup, Dell seems to be operating on the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" principle. The XPS 27 Touch packs a speedy new Haswell CPU under its hood, but that's the only significant departure from earlier...

Aside from those quibbles, the Dell XPS 27 Touch is an exquisite all-in-one.

Terrible

 

Biggest waste of money from a supposedly reliable manufacturer. Will NEVER purchase Dell again. Their Technicians are useless. All they do is replace parts. They are unable to diagnose any problems.

Extremely unreliable. Video Cards, Hard Disks, Motherboard have all been replaced twice. Computer constantly freezes when being used for gaming. Now refuses to start. Dell is replacing Hard Disk for 3rd time. Have requested replacement computer. This...
