Intel’s AC87 and AC88 are among the most powerful computers on the market today, but that doesn’t mean they’re any better than the Intel U18 desktop PCs that Dell introduced back in 2013.
The U18 series of machines features the same Intel Core i7-6820HK processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of PCIe flash storage, a Thunderbolt 3 port, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports on the rear panel.
The Pce’s AC90 is more expensive, but offers more features.
The AC90 starts at $1,499, but comes with the Core i5-6200U CPU, 4GB of DDR4 RAM, 1TB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage, and a 1TB SATA SSD.
There’s also a 7th generation Intel Core M processor, Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics, a 3.5mm audio jack, an SDXC card slot, and four USB 3.0 ports.
If you’re looking for a laptop with the same Core i6-7300HQ processor, 4K graphics, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and 802.10ac WiMAX wireless networking, you’re better off with the Dell U18.
