Dell Studio XPS 8300 review


This Sandy Bridge system has refreshingly different styling and some interesting features, but it's out-performed by almost every other comparable system on the market.

The PC has 8GB of RAM in two 4GB sticks, which leaves space for another two modules. There are also two PCI-E x1 slots and one PCI-E x16 slot, but all of them are occupied. The x16 slot is taken up by the graphics card, a 1GB ATI Radeon 5770, while the...

Somehow, even with the competition regularly breathing down their necks, Dell has managed to remain the go-to source for quality monitors . Regardless

Dell Studio 1749


Big, bulky and beautiful, Dell's Studio 1749 is a powerhouse with a pleasing price tag

If you’re looking for desktop functionality with added portability the 1749 is certainly your best bet. It carries a number of features which notebooks in the same price range simply fail to match. Nonetheless, the size is somewhat of an issue for the...

Dell Studio XPS review


Dell's Studio XPS makes good use of its Intel Core i7 920 and 6GB allocation of RAM, scoring a commendable 128 points in WorldBench 6.

Dell's Studio XPS may cost £50 less than the competition, but the specifications list has taken a far greater cut.

Dell Studio Slim review


The Dell Studio Slim lives up to its name: this stylish, narrow PC would look great under a desk or next to a coffee table. Unfortunately, the compact design also means that the notion of upgrading is merely wishful thinking.

In overall performance and usability, the Dell Studio Slim is a solid value desktop PC. Slightly less-expensive value PCs don't offer nearly as great a mix of storage and connectivity as this system does. But there's more to a PC than its ability to...
