Dell Inspiron 24 7000 AIO
Sleek, slender, and dressed to impress: the dynamic Dell Inspiron 24 7000 is a mountful all-in-one PC that features some of the most fun and interesting technologies, crammed into something so slim.
The design of the Inspiron 24 7000 AIO is clean, thin, stylish, and modern. The bulk of the PC is distributed between the monitor, the neck and the base – making it look thin all through and through. Combined with aluminum gray with black accents, this all-in-one PC also carries an air of luxury.
Our review unit comes standard with Dell's wireless desktop keyboard and mouse. Once all set up, the only cable that was connected to the Inspiron 24 7000 AIO was the power cable. Nevertheless, the base of the PC provides four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a memory card reader, a universal headset jack, audio out, Ethernet port,
NOVEMBER 2015 and HDMI out. The base also houses the stereo speakers. However, plugging in too many peripherals to the PC takes away from its esthetics.
Interestingly, there is also an HDMI in port built into the base. This means users can plug in another device, for example a gaming console, to the Inspiron 24 7000 AIO and take advantage of its beautiful 23.8-inch Full HD Truelife LED-backlit touch display. The tilt of the display has a range of between -5° to 60°, giving the AIO PC a wide range of applications.
Built into the top of the display is an Intel RealSense camera. On paper, the technology is sound. It has facial analysis that could track multiple faces, and identify facial features like eyes, mouth and nose. It also has hand and finger tracking, with the ability to track up to 10 fingers simultaneously, recognize eight gestures, and access to raw depth data.
Additionally, the RealSense camera has sound processing in the form of speech recognition and background noise subtraction; augmented reality with object tracking; and the ability to draw CG images in real-world scenarios.
It's a fun novelty, but as any gamer would tell you, this technology is very similar to the one built into a current generation console, and that technology has been unceremoniously sidelined by the aforementioned console maker.
