Dell XPS 27 (2017) review

Ear candy wrapped in a sturdy chassis with an excellent display and reasonably good performance for the money, the update to the computer we praised in 2014 as “almost everything you could want in an all-in-one” gets an overhaul for 2017. Most notably, this year’s XPS 27 (model 7760) Windows 10 PC boasts the most sophisticated audio system built into a PC and a UHD 4K display with a broad color gamut, making it a great home entertainment system — as long as you’re not a hard-core gamer — or compact-footprint choice for audio editing.


Prices start at $1,499, with initial choices of 6th-generation Core i5 and i7 processors (Skylake). You can choose integrated graphics or switchable discrete AMD R9 M470X and M485X GPUs. You can also choose between a UHD 4K (3,840×2,160-pixel-resolution) touchscreen display or a nontouch panel of the same resolution but 50 nits brighter and using Dell’s thin-bezel Infinity Edge. It doesn’t seem to be available in the UK or Australia yet, but the previous model is listed as discontinued for both regions; directly converted the prices start at about £1,220 and AU$1,995.
