Last week Laptop Mag reiterated that Dell’s XPS 13 is still their overall favorite laptop, dating back years. While the XPS laptop line is the best in the market, not everyone is looking for a mobile PC. Many people need a powerful and configurable desktop and Dell’s XPS Tower desktops offer the same standard of XPS design and innovation excellence. The XPS Tower Special Edition is our high performance, VR-ready desktop with a compact, toolless chassis designed with easy access for future upgrades, perfect for video or photo editing, content playback, virtual reality, gaming and multi-tasking.
Today we are excited to announce the XPS Tower Special Edition has been updated with up to 46 percent more performance* with the addition of the new 8th Generation Intel® Core™ desktop processors, more configurability options and increased memory. A few select reviewers were able to get their hands on systems early and the feedback has been very positive. PCMag and Tom’s Guide each gave XPS Tower Special Edition an “Editor’s Choice” award and Hot Hardware gave their “Recommended” award.
“If you want a gaming PC that’s powerful, upgradable and unassuming enough to sit anywhere, from your office to your command center, the Dell XPS Tower Special Edition is at the top of its class.” –Tom’s Guide
Let’s dig a little deeper to see what’s new on the XPS Special Edition!
