Despite being incapable of running both Android and Windows 8 like the innovative new Asus Transformer AiO, Dell’s XPS 18 is still one of the most attractive hybrids to be launched of late. The 18-incher makes use of a simple optional stand and an even simpler set of flip-out feet, being a perfect Win 8-based tablet/all-in-one PC for both personal and business purposes.
Unveiled not long ago, the XPS 18 is already available for pre-orders stateside, via Dell’s official website, with shipping scheduled to start on May 8. The pricing structure is pretty lucrative for what this big guy has to offer, given that you can get the entry-level model for as less as $899.99.
True, that doesn’t pack a whole lot of heat beneath its hood, but it does come with a decent 1.8 GHz Intel Pentium CPU, 4 GB of RAM, a 320 GB HDD and Intel HD Graphics 4000. 100 extra bucks will upgrade the Pentium processor to a Core i3 and boost the storage to 500 GB, while $1,349.99 will get you a state-of-the-art all-in-one with a third-gen Core i5 chip, 8 GB of RAM and dual SSD/HDD memory.
In all cases, you will get a pretty sleek computing machine, weighing in at 4.85 pounds and sporting a stunning Full HD touch-enabled panel (1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution). Now, who wants one of these?
