The Dell XPS Tower Special Edition is 27 percent smaller than its previous iteration, measuring a compact 15.22 by 7.09 by 14.02 inches (HWD).
Opening up the XPS Tower Special Edition is fairly simple thanks to its tool-less design. Because the Special Edition is rather compact, its insides are a tad cramped and that’s reflected in its Tetris-like engineering.
In the rear, you’ll find an additional three USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 port, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB-C port, an HDMI port, a DisplayPort connector, an Ethernet jack and three audio jacks. There’s a latch at the rear top-right corner that releases the left panel.
The front panel contains the power button, four USB 3.0 ports, a microphone jack, a headphone jack, an SD card slot, and the DVD-RW optical drive.
The body of the XPS Tower is made of black plastic, while the front panel features a dark silver aluminum bezel and the Dell logo.
The Special Edition comes with a standard keyboard and mouse, which, while not spectacular, will tide you over until you can decide on the perfect gaming mouse and keyboard.
