Dell XPS 27 Touch All-in-One Review

17 thumbs up
We used a power meter to measure the amount of power our test system pulled from the wall outlet. You'll find three figures below: power supply's maximum rated wattage, peak power consumption under a full CPU/GPU load, and how much the system pulled from the wall when idle, following a fresh system boot.

The power supply rating on the Dell XPS 27 Touch is 260W, and it it needs almost all of that headroom while suffering through a full load of Prime 95 and Furmark torturing the CPU and GPU. At idle, the system pulls a respectable 87W.

This system is remarkably quiet; it’s easy to forget that there are serious components in there like discrete graphics. The only time we heard anything above a whisper from this rig is when it was churning through certain tests such as the SANDRA Processor Multimedia test and Aliens vs. Predator Under stress the system uttered a low whirring sound. It was a little odd because we didn’t hear the same noise during the Prime 95/Furmark test.  The extra sound isn’t much, but to sensitive gamer ears it could be noticeable.

We have 45 dell PC's that are now over 6 yrs old and they are still going strong. Dells just seem to last, funny how people told me dells are cheap crap. Sure the mouse and keyboard are crap however they seem to go forever.
