Dell Launches Iconic All-in-One Desktop PCNovember 20th, 2007 - 12:19 am ICT by admin
Dell CEO Michael Dell teased Oracle OpenWorld attendees last week by providing a tantalizing first glimpse of the PC-maker’s new all-in-one desktop that sports advanced multimedia capabilities. As of Monday, the new product is now available for direct purchase from Dell in both the U.S. and Japan.
“This is perhaps the most beautiful Dell ever,” said Dell’s chairman and CEO. “Stunning design meets stunning features to redefine the personal computer in the home.”

Moreover, a built-in motion sensor causes the machine’s controls to glow blue whenever the user’s hands are in close proximity.
The simplicity of the XPS One setup likely will be a primary attraction. The only essential cable for connecting the machine is the AC power cord; the connections for peripherals, keyboard, and mouse all have been Bluetooth-enabled. With only one cord, the XPS One can be placed in any room in the home and become operational with a minimum of initial muss and fuss.
Underneath the Hood
