The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

The system comes with a set of Windows 7-friendly touchscreen utilities called Touch Zone already installed. This begins with an intuitive Lobby utility that spreads out large program icons in an arc on your Desktop, letting you flick back and forth to navigate. The programs include a sticky note writer, weather forecasts, a picture browser, video and audio players, a webcam utility, a bunch of minor touchscreen games and a percussion and keyboard toy.

All of the programs are fun to use but none are compelling, even for a home user.

The touchscreen itself is effective and responsive, although it feels small compared with those in competitive all-in-ones. You still need a keyboard and mouse for speed and precision, of course, and here it becomes clearer where Dell has cut corners to keep the price down.

The classy, high-gloss black all-in-one system is accompanied by a surprisingly bland Dell USB keyboard and mouse that look and feel incongruously cheap in their lightweight, matte black plastic.
