A Month With The XPS One
While reviewing it, I got to spend a full month using the XPS One. Aesthetics are one of the strongest aspects of this computer. If you prefer clean lines, moderately conservative color scheme, plethora of connectors and ports, minimum of wires and overall good looks of your PCs, you will not be disappointed.
Living in a small apartment, where every square inch counts, I try to find products that serve multiple purposes and do not sacrifice features. The XPS One is not your typical bulky desktop tower and monitor, but a combination of both in an eye-pleasing enclosure. This greatly reduces its footprint and the amount of space it takes up, while still performing well. Even though a 20” LCD monitor cannot replace the living room’s television set for a larger family, it works well for individual use or for a small group of 2.
During the month I was using the XPS One, it made my digital life a lot less complicated. When I wake up in the morning, I can just grab the wireless keyboard at my bedside and get the morning news all from the comfort of my bed. Since I can’t do everything in Windows Media Center, I can use touchpad to open up my mail client to read and respond to any emails. It’s also been very useful for checking up on deals late at night and making sure frontpage worthy deals get posted.
An expensive purchase such as XPS One can be tough to justify if you have to deal with computer related issues on a daily basis. Whether it’s entertaining guests,or working, you want technology to be your friend, not your enemy. The XPS One delivers that – it just works. When a friend wanted to show me photos they recently took, we took the memory card out of the camera, started up Windows Media Center, and in a few seconds we’re enjoying the photos.
The all-in-one solution and "it just works" concept made the month I spent using XPS One enjoyable.Previous Next
