Dell Studio XPS 8100 Value PC

 

The Dell Studio XPS 8100 is an affordable performance desktop aimed at people seeking an all-around capable system that doesn't necessarily need tinkering with. Priced at $1429 (as of February 1, 2010), it comes with a Core i5-750 processor, 8GB of...

Good general and gaming performance ; Bundled 120Hz 22-inch LCD and 3D goggles

Limited internal expansion options

The Studio XPS 8100 is a solid all-around performer with good connectivity and a bundled 120Hz Samsung LCD and nVidia 3D glasses. Just don't count on making upgrades.

Dell Studio XPS 8100 Review

 

Adding a touch of sophistication to the more affordable Inspiron lines, Dell's Studio segment offers an option to mainstream users who want a little more - without having to spend the cash on an Alienware.

Contemporary design ; Good build quality ; Tray, ports on top

Silver trim feels cheap ; Front: fingerprint magnet ; Loud under load

The Studio XPS 8100 is Dell's second entry into the Studio XPS 8000 series of desktops, and the fourth in their Studio XPS line overall. It sits in an interesting place compared to the rest of Dell's lineup: it isn't part of the value-oriented Inspiron...

Dell Studio XPS 8100 desktop PC

 

This Dell PC has the grunt to handle everyday computing with ease

Reasonable price tag, impressive performance for general usage, 64-bit Windows 7 as standard

Choosing more powerful components quickly drives up the price, no monitor included in base bundle

The Dell Studio XPS 8100 is a well-priced, mid-range desktop PC for home usage. It doesn't have the strongest specifications -- you'll have to pay significantly to add extra performance through Dell's customisation options -- but it will handle almost...

Dell's Studio XPS 8100: we review the big brand's mid range desktop

 

A somewhat middling performer, suited to power users but lacking the oomph to make it something special

Dell Studio XPS 8100 Desktop - Dell Junk ”

 

After owning the Dell Studio XPS 8100 Desktop for about 5 months, the system starting indiscriminately but regularly stalling and freezing - to the point where it was not usable at all. Then I found a TON of complaints online about the XPS having this...

Dell Desktop Computer's are my friend ”

 

I have owned many different brands, and kind of took my cue with the Dell from my parents. They are now on their second Dell, and no problems. I too am now on my second Dell. The first I will admit was kind of rocky in the beginning but worked out all...

One of the fastest computers that I have ever used ”

 

The Dell Studio XPS 8100 desktop computer is the fastest computer that I have ever used. I installed a lot of applications on this computer, and the computer did not slow down at all. I love that the RAM can be upgraded up to 16 GB. You can choose from...
