    Well we have seen what gateway can do. Dell has really out did themselves! Sure it cost more than an iMac and you get less of a graphics card. I think this Dell really looks nice, but for the money I'd stick with an iMac. I love how they copied the display behind a sheet of tempered glass and called it there own.







    The XPS One™: A gorgeous machine with abundant possibilities. Enjoy powerful computing; Hi-def widescreen, flat panel viewing; complete multi-media functionality… or lust, pure and simple.

    Objet D’Envy
    Sculptural and compact, the Dell XPS One is truly stunning. The bezel-less 20" display is a single sheet of glass, tempered for strength.
    The smoked glass base, also tempered, gives the system a light, sleek look.
    Finished front and back design that's striking from every angle.
    Motion sensitive controls glow blue when your hand approaches.

    Radical Convenience
    With a single cord, a wireless keyboard and mouse and internal wireless card built right in, the XPS One is designed for minimal fuss and maximum cordless connectivity. Take it out of the box, plug it in, and you’re ready to play.

    Rebel Rebel

    Light Touch
