Just purchased one, this is one of those deals that I wish I could get 3. Can I make more accounts Woot? I don't think it is going to sell out unless there is only 100 units.

Is this just tooooo BIG for use as a home desktop???

Is this toooooo much for a "first time Win 8" user that wants to upgrade from XP ???

Thoughts?? Thank you.

It's been a long time since I've bought a windows machine, but I find myself in the market for one. This seems to check off a lot of boxes, but I don't know if I need the screen and touchiness.

I'm also not very on top of the market when it comes to processors and graphics cards, but i7 and quad core sound shiny. Can any PC-savvy folks point me to a comparably specced box that doesn't have the screen, so I can see what I'd be paying for all the touch stuff?

Edit: also - how easy is it to service these AIOs? Could I upgrade the ram? the HD? etc. I've done both on my iMac, so I figure it can't be much harder than that...

Looks compelling for a relatively recent, awesome computer selling at half price, but the negative reviews on Dell's website are frightening:

http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-27-2720-aio/pd?oc=dxcwls566&model_id=xps-27-2720-aio

Even worse the problems were not resolved. Gonna pass on this

These are great machines.

I just received 2 of the Dell 2720's about three weeks ago. Exact same specs.

They are replacing my 27 inch iMac 2010 models.

I really really enjoy having a 27 inch touchscreen.

Games run beautifully and smoothly as well.

I highly recommend this deal

One word of caution. The subject of the deal and the general description of the deal both mentioned a 32gb mSata drive. But the detailed specs do not list.

Installing an mSata drive could not be any easier however. One of my two machines that I got from Dell did not include this drive and I knew it when I ordered.

Installing one is about a two minute process

Simply remove the back cover, snap the little mSata drive into place, then log into the bios system (hold F2 at start up), change the boot option from AHCI to raid, boot into the desktop and go to the intel rapid storage program and click enable.

Simple as that. No need to reinstall windows, programs, etc. Easy peasy. At least with Win 8 it is.

But it sounds like this system sold here should come with an mSata drive. So it should be all good. But those instructions will work if needed.

For some reason the manual doesn't list this spec. I found the spec for the 2710 model which does say it's compatible:
Power ratings
Input voltage 100–240 VAC
Input frequency 50 Hz–60 Hz
Output current 3.6 A

This would make me think that today's would be compatible.

I went the extra mile and did an online chat to confirm that this model also has an input voltage of 110-240 vac

Warranty info is always at the bottom of the Features. This has a one year Dell warranty. You can also purchase an extended protection plan through SquareTrade. The graphic/link for that may not show up on some mobile devices.

The model number is in the title on the sale's detail page:

Dell XPS 27-2720T

The "T" could be a designation that it's factory reconditioned and not new.

Yes, gatzbyglen, it really has an SSD. The specs will be updated in a little while when the person that has that magical power gets home.

I believe it comes with Windows 8 Pro. The only XPS 27 model that Dell sells with non-Pro Windows 8 is the model with the Intel i5 processor and 1GB of RAM. This one (with the i7 and 2GB RAM) has Windows 8 Pro (which can be upgraded to 8.1)

I'm about to pull the trigger on this. I have a cart full of components at NewEgg to upgrade my DIY computer to Haswell, and this is comparable to the build-it-myself price of just the internals, with the added benefit of the huge touchscreen monitor. What really sells me on choosing this is that it's not all sealed up -- I can upgrade the RAM to 16G and increase the SSD size with just a screwdriver and a few minutes effort. Tom's Hardware has pictures of the inside and it looks pretty accessible.


Here are the things I like:
Haswell i7
Thunderbolt! and 6 USB3 ports
HDMI in - can use the monitor with my work laptop
HDMI out - can set up a second monitor
The resolution seems perfect. High enough to look great, but not so high that text and icons are tiny.
That gorilla hinge is meant for frequent movement for a variety of positions with little effort. You can practically lay it down as a surface, or you could just use it like a normal monitor.

The Woot description doesn't mention it, but it also has a slot-loading DVD drive on the side. I know a lot of people think you don't need these anymore, but I think it's handy on a desktop. Dell offers this as a blu-ray, but the specs here at Woot just says Supermulti DVD, so I think this model doesn't have blu-ray. That is a compromise for me. Anyone think different?

I haven't ordered from Woot in a while, does standard shipping generally mean UPS Ground?

It's not too large at all as a desktop PC. It's a great size, big enough but not too much. One of our monitors is 1.5 inches smaller and we wish it was a little larger.

It's a huge upgrade of everything you currently have. The only downside is Win 8.

Read thru the reviews on Dell.com carefully. My take is that there seems to be a crop of the units that have issues; and once you have it, it is hard to get them resolved despite having different component replacement. Like a lot of refurbrished PC's , it is a matter of luck. Just hope you don't get stuck with a lemon as getting tech support and getting components replaced can take many hours....Otherwise , the specs and pricing are extremely attractive.

Dear woot! staff:

Y'all need to talk to Uncle Bezos at the next staff meeting and get him to OK a woot! store card like his Amazon store card. With my Amazon store card, if I buy something that's over $150, I can take six months to pay it off with no interest. (if it's more than $600, I get a year to pay it off)

If you had something like that, I'd be ordering one of these nice machines for myself instead of gazing wistfully at it and wishing it was on Amazon instead of woot!

Love,

-M

First,
I have to disagree with all the negative comments on Windows 8 on a touch screen or non touch. I have been using it since it debuted upgrading Win 7 computers with 4 8 Pro licenses I bought at the special intro price. I wasn't over the top about Windows 8 until I got my two touch tablets. An RT surface I have since sold, an HP Envy X2 tablet/ultrabook, and a Lenovo Lynx.

Windows 8 with touch is like a science fiction movie made real. After a few days playing with it you won't ever go back. See it is made for it, but you can always use the desktop and keyboard and mouse. We are just two our kids grown and I am a tech pro. We have three desktops and one is my biggest mistake to date. An Acer 23"AIO without touch.

As to the specs and refurbished with one year warranty. Dell took these back and went over them with a fine tooth comb, and these should be less likely to give problems than new. Dell does not want to spend any more on them or they would give them to brown box refurbishers that can often be bad deals.

I am about to pull the trigger on it too. Just waiting for she who must be obeyed to get home and rant about all my tech toys and hopefully by the time she gets over it some are left.

This is a deal as I have been shopping vastly lesser specs new for within a hundred bucks.

Nevermind,
Pulling the trigger as soon as I post this.

Got it!

Thanks innovateltd AND MichXelle -

I bit the bullet and I'm upgrading. Yes sounds like a huge upgrade of my present system.

Time to try to learn something new..WIN 8 (Oh well)

If its a lemon, at least I've got my old system that still works unlike last time when I had to upgrade after my old system crashed.

I'm ahead of the game this time (I hope).
