Evaluation

The demand for tablets is increasing every year and laptop PCs are now being replaced by tablets for some work. The XPS 18 is a new product with the possibility of being a post-desktop computer. Like tablets, input can be done with the touch of a finger or the use of a stylus, rather than with a mouse and keyboard. It is also portable and can be used with a lot of freedom, unlike desktop computers. Although the body is large at 18.4 inches, directly touching the screen doesn’t feel stressful unlike one may expect; in fact it is natural and easy to operate. There is a possibility that this category will expand in the future and the design, including usability, may become even more energized. The performance is uncompromising and the details and form are well finished. We highly rated the inspiring design to create a market.
