Wow. I guess Asus isn't the only one to think there's a market for jumbo-sized convertible all-in-ones. On the heels of the Transformer AiO's debut, The Verge reports that Dell has unleashed a similarly sized machine that's both a desktop and a humongous tablet.
Dubbed the XPS 18 All-In-One, the system was unveiled yesterday at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Dell's home city. Details are few and far between right now, but according to the teaser page on the PC maker's website, it looks like the whole system is a tablet. "You can unplug and take it with you to create a permanent set-up anywhere with convenient flip-out feet and excellent battery life," says Dell.
That's a different approach from that of Asus, whose Transformer All-In-One has a stationary desktop component and a detachable screen that runs Android. The XPS 18 All-In-One seems to have an ultra-low-voltage Intel Core processor and only one operating system: Windows 8. It may actually be lighter than the Asus machine, however. A Twitter post quoted by The Verge says the XPS 18 All-In-One weighs "less than 5 lbs;" by contrast, the Transformer AiO's tablet half is supposed to weigh around 5.3 lbs.
