PRODUCT DESIGN, MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, Visual brand language
a powerful tool for the creative class
Building upon the principles created for the Dell XPS Laptops, Dell and MINIMAL continued their collaboration to establish an intelligent, cohesive design language for the next generation of Windows 8 All-In-One computers.
The team set out to design an ultra-clean panel architecture that was as thin as possible, reducing visual mass to a minimum. Perceived thickness was reduced by a carefully considered “layered” part architecture of contrasting materials and finishes, with venting hidden in part lines between layers.
The main body sits solidly atop a sculpted adjustable stand that accommodates a wide range of vertical viewing angles. The 27 inch high-definition display is celebrated with bold, edge-to-edge glass, creating a vivid distraction-free layout. With this display, a wireless keyboard, the adjustable stand, and fierce technology under the hood, All-In-One is a high performance PC that blends surprising power with effortless style.
Upon launch, Dell's AIO received universal industry praise as a leader in Windows 8 PC's and is the winner of multiple awards including both PC Mag and CNET Editor's Choice Awards.
