Round Rock (TX) â€" Dell has upgraded its all-in-on system XPS One with a larger LCD and new core hardware components. Prices for the new systems start at $1699.

Efforts to copy the iMac concept over to the PC arena never really worked and resulted in somewhat exotic. Gateway’s One or Dell’s XPS One remained niche products and the fate of these computers may be even more in question down the road when notebooks are becoming the dominant computing platform.

However, the Dell XPS One was apparently successful enough to justify a hardware upgrade. Dell increased the size of the LCD to 24â€, added an Intel quad-core CPU (Q8200), hard drives with capacities between 320 and 750 GB, 4 GB of memory and an Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT graphics chip. The system is available in midnight gray or pure white, which represents the XPS One 24 (PRODUCT) RED version.

Prices start at $1699. An upgrade integrated to discrete graphics and a larger hard drive costs $300. The flagship is the Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED model, which is priced at $2299.

The 20†models are still available for prices starting $999.

Bah, where's the Centrino 2 refresh for their laptops?

I'm being forced to go with a Lenovo laptop, despite their horrible customer support, because of that.

Why bother using a Q8200 and 4gb of ram if they are going to put a 9600M GT in it..

do you think the average person that would buy this actually needs anything more than a 9600gt? besides.. a GTX 280 in a chasis not much larger than a monitor would never run below 100C

Lol.. I'm picturing a warning sticker "Caution never use unless in A/C room less than 50 degrees F."

You know, there are applications that require processor power but no graphics power (video encoding for one).

*facepalm*

Because its a computer that exists because the imac exists. And it exists because the imac is successful... Its a clone of it, more or less. May look different, but the idea is the same.

So by that logic, a macbook and a Thinkpad are clones of the Grid Compass then?

Okay then every OS is a clone of MIT's OS made for the UNIVAC 1103 from 1954 then?

The only similarity between the iMac and the One is the fact they are both all-in-one's. That does not make one a clone of another.

Come on a 9800GTS is the minumum that should be taken seriously.
9800GTX should be availible in all honesty.

Most people never experience a single problem with intel 910 integrated graphics. A 9600 is overkill.

Point me to where they suggested this was meant to be a hardcore gaming device.
