Starting 2002, Dell considered buying Alienware, but did not take any action until March 22, 2006, when it agreed to purchase the company.

The new subsidiary maintained its autonomy in terms of design and marketing.

A special edition is available with an AMD Radeon R9 270.

Memory: The Dell XPS One 27" is an all-in-one PC that, hence its name, features a 27-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 pixels wide and a height of 1440 pixels.

It features Intel's 6th-generation (Skylake) i5 and i7 CPUs on an LGA 1151 socket.

It also includes an upgrade to higher-bandwidth DDR4 memory.

Due to corporate restructuring in the spring of 2008, the XPS brand was scaled down and then discontinued.

In 2008 the former XPS line became known as "Studio XPS" and Dell advertised it as a performance computer line while Alienware was being advertised for gaming.

The Dell XPS 8700 is Dell's second most recent product in the XPS line.
