Dell Studio XPS 7100


Priced at just over $1500 (as of August 1, 2010, as configured), the Dell Studio XPS 7100 is a mainstream desktop targeted at shoppers who want a PC that has enough muscle to tackle modern games and CPU-intensive tasks such as photo editing or light...

Attractive case ; Built-in Wi-Fi

Limited upgradability

Versatile, attractive, and capable--Dell’s Studio XPS 7100 lacks upgrade potential, but it's a strong contender for the media-savvy set.

Dell Studio s7100-1060NBK


The Dell Studio s7100-1060NBK is a general-purpose desktop that brings plenty of horsepower to the table for everyday applications and even includes expansion room for future hardware upgrades.

Strong overall performance. Room for expansion. No bloatware. 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter.

Anemic 3D performance. Flimsy mouse.

Dell Studio XPS 7100


The system has some internal expansion room, including space for 1 PCI card, two hard drives, and one optical drive. There are plenty of ports and space—it's just that most of the slots have already been populated. You'll have to pop out some of the...

Very good gaming performance. 6-core AMD Phenom II processor. Intelligent solution to bloatware problem. 15-month McAfee Security Center subscription. 802.11a/b/g/n wireless. Immobilizing bracket on graphics card. HDMI, eSATA, DisplayPort. Blu-ray

Less legacy technologies. Expansion space is mostly full

The Dell Studio XPS 7100 sits at a genre-straddling nexus as a multimedia PC that also plays 3D games well.

Best mainstream desktop computer


The Dell Studio XPS 7100 is a capable mainstream desktop, with power to spare for everyday computing and most processor-intensive tasks. It also is a more-than-respectable gaming machine, offering very good gaming performance for the price....

Excellent value, discrete graphics, good gaming performance

Not much room for upgrades, blu-ray drive costs extra

Dell Studio XPS 7100 Review


Dell is the first major computer manufacturer to market a desktop both with AMD's new Vision market branding as well as with their new six-core processors.

Attractive design ; Six-core CPU, powerful GPU ; THX-certified sound, Blu-ray drive ; Good value for the money

No TV tuner ; Wired keyboard and mouse

It was mentioned earlier that the original Studio XPS rated so well because it offered exceptional performance for a market-leading price. Despite putting out some quality computers, nothing Dell has offered since then has come close. The Studio XPS...

Dell Studio XPS 7100


When looking for a home computer there are plenty of factors to look into. With the Dell Studio XPS 7100 you get a large storage capacity of 1500GB, a processor with a speed of 2.8 GHz and a Blu-ray player. You are sure to get everything you need to...

The storage space on this home computer is almost 1.5TB, and it also comes with a Blu-ray player

This home computer doesn't come with wireless capabilities installed, but you can have them added for an extra cost

When you consider the massive storage space, Blu-ray player, 2.5 GHz processing speed and 8GB of RAM, you can see that this computer will handle any home project you need it to.

Dell Studio XPS 7100 review


The Dell Studio XPS 7100 is attractive, it offers a six-core AMD processor, and it bundles a few media-centric hardware extras, making for a surprisingly versatile package.

If you're unperturbed by the limited upgrade potential (a standard caveat for systems from the bigger PC vendors), the Dell Studio XPS 7100 is a solid choice. It combines an attractive chassis with strong general and gaming performance, and it adds...
