Dell unveils the XPS 18 huge all-in-one Windows 8 tablet
Dell has reportedly announced a new “portable all-in-one” device that runs on a full-fledged 64-bit version of Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system. The XPS 18 is essentially a giant tablet that weighs 4.85lbs and will hit the store shelves sometime in April of this year with a starting price of $899 (the base configuration presumably includes a Dual-Core Intel Pentium 2117U, 4GB of RAM and a 320GB HDD + 32GB SSD).
Enveloped in an aluminium case, Dell’s upcoming mobile AIO is powered by an Ivy Bridge Pentium ULV or Core i3/i5/i7 CPU. In addition, the system features an 18.4-inch capacitive multi-touch display of Full HD (1980-by-1080 pixels) native resolution and houses 8GB of RAM, 720p front-facing web camera for video conferencing and a choice between a 500GB spinning hard drive or a 512GB SSD.
Measuring 18mm thick, the XPS 18 is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 and Wireless LAN radios, two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader slot up and a battery that apparently lasts for around 5 hours on a single charge.
