70% Dell XPS 18 review: 18.4-inch touch-sensitive all-in-one PC
Source: PC Advisor English
We were surprised how quickly we became used to having a device like the XPS 18 that could follow us from room to room. Of course, you could get a 15-inch laptop for half the price – but that wouldn’t have such a large and attractive HD display. That portability is, admittedly, a bit of a luxury – but it’s a luxury that you could learn to take for granted.

Dell XPS 18 Review
Source: Slashgear English
What Dell has created here is a truly unique amalgamation of elements. This computer can be a massive tablet, it can be a desktop machine, and it can be carried around in a custom-fitted carrying case that’s also already out on the market. This isn’t a computer made for the common user, that’s for sure – what it is made for is a user hoping to go big on multi-form computing.
