Dell XPS 18 vs Asus Transformer AIO vs Sony Vaio Tap 20:Better is...............................


W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Dell XPS 18                                                                                                                                               The Dell XPS 18 is one of emerging new category of PC. It's an all-in-one Windows 8 machine which sits on a heavy metal stand and comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse. The Dell XPS 18 combines an all-in-one PC with a lightweight 18-inch tablet, making it a flexible system for at-home entertainment and productivity.
But, You're paying a premium for a relatively small screen. Less expensive configurations cut too many corners to be a good deal.
The bottom line: It's the best of the small handful of current tablet/all-in-one hybrids, with a subtle, sophisticated design and good battery life, but this new genre is still in its early days.                                    Specifications                                                                                                                                            Display size/pixel resolution 18-inch, 1,920x1,080 touch screen                                                                 PC CPU 1.8GHz Intel Core i5-3337U                                                                                                       PC memory 8GB 1,600MHZ DDR3 SDRAM                                                                                           Graphics 32MB Intel HD Graphics 4000                                                                                                  Storage 1TB, 7,200rpm hard drive                                                                                                              Optical drive None                                                                                                                                   Networking Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0                                                             Operating system Windows 8 Pro (64-bit)                                                                                                 Price $1,349.99                                                                                                                                          VS                                                                                                                                                         Asus Transformer AIO                                                                                                                               The Asus Transformer AIO delivers a fast Windows 8 all-in-one, a giant Android tablet, and an effective platform for using them in tandem.
But, Remote desktop technology makes using Windows 8 in tablet mode unreliable, and you might prefer to wait to buy until later this year when the category has matured.
The bottom line: You'd be smart to wait and see how the market develops, but Asus has used the freedom of the still-forming all-in-one/tablet hybrid category to create a compelling Windows 8/Android device in the Transformer AIO.

By slapping a battery inside a 20-inch touch-screen all-in-one to make the Sony Vaio Tap 20, the company has given birth to a new PC category with great potential in tech-savvy homes.
But, The touch screen has some frustrating drag, and Sony made a few missteps among some otherwise reasonable sacrifices for portability and price.
The bottom line: A compelling experiment in tablet-desktop hybridization, the Sony Vaio Tap 20 is a great fit for home tech enthusiasts willing to try something new.
