The Dell XPS 18 is an all-in-one touchscreen PC, running Windows 8 and set to go head to head with the likes of the Sony Vaio Tap 20, the Asus Transformer AiO and, to a lesser extent, the Panasonic 4K tablet.
Dell XPS 18: Size and build
Packing an 18.4-inch full HD screen, the device weighs in at 2.2kg, with a profile that measures 4.3mm thick so it's relatively portable considering its size, although it does look and feel rather like a giant tablet (which of course, it's not - it runs a full desktop version of Windows 8).
Dell XPS 18: Features
As well as being used as a desktop machine, balanced on the lap like a tablet, or propped up for video watching on the fold-out flippers at the back, the XPS 18 can also be used flat on a surface. This is well suited to multiplayer games, including one we saw that lets four individuals take charge of four intruments, one on each side of the tablet.
Dell XPS 18: Verdict
While the XPS 18 may look like a big tablet, Dell is keen to point out that it's not. This is kind of touchscreen device that Windows 8 was made for, but it won't be for everyone.
While the idea that it can be used as a desktop PC for the parents and a play device for the kids is good in theory, we think most people would rather keep separate devices for the nipppers and the old timers. Whether demand is there or not, it certainly looks like an impressive product and we look forward to giving it a thorough test drive though...
