Dell Studio XPS

 

Somewhere between gaming and mainstream systems lies the Dell Studio XPS. With its Core i7 power, it can compete with much higher-end—and pricier—machines.

High-end performance for what used to be a mainstream price. Can play games, including Crysis. It's not a gaming rig, so it won't stick out.

At this price, it should have had Blu-ray and a little more storage. Its power supply somewhat limits future expansion.

Dell Studio XPS Power Desktop

 

The Studio XPS delivers powerful performance for its price; but the internal design hampers this awesome PC.

High-performance Core i7 CPU ; Competitively priced

Internal design issues ; Only 500GB storage

Though standard parts and components can be customized and changed over time, Dell is relatively locked to its proprietary case and components. That's a shame, because in a normal, upgrade-friendly chassis, the Dell Studio XPS would shine as a solid PC...

This Studio XPS (model 435mt) includes a 2.93-GHz Intel Core i7 940 processor, an excellent CPU that delivers powerful speeds in conjunction with the system's 6GB of DDR3 (1066 MHz) memory. As you might expect, a 64-bit Windows Vista version--Home...

Dell Studio XPS review: Dell Studio XPS

 

Dell Studio XPS

Outstanding performance for sub-$1,500 PC; configurable options let you get a Core i7 CPU for less than $1,000.

Competing systems have more exciting features; limited upgrade path.

You can find flashier PCs than Dell's $1,299 Studio XPS, but few have as much power where it counts. We don't recommend its small, pared-down case for upgraders, but this PC will satisfy anyone who needs a loaded, powerful PC for gaming and...

Dell Studio XPS Review

 

The launch of Intel's new Core i7 microarchitecture presents a fantastic opportunity for computer manufacturers to introduce their own new products and boost flagging sales.

The new Dell Studio XPS is fast. It's really fast. Really, really fast. The new Intel Core i7 platform works very well and should be a solid foundation from which to build here on out. Having said that, however, there are a few issues that could be...

Dell Studio XPS: Intel's Core i7 system for £699

 

Introduction   Intel launched its next-generation of desktop microprocessors, Core i7, a couple of weeks ago to general acclaim, heralding benchmark-busting performance from an architecture that maximised on incumbent Core 2's potential

Final thoughts and rating Dell's Studio XPS packs in a Core i7 platform and shoehorns it into a mini-tower box that's less than half the size of a regular chassis. Smaller form factors are the key to extending the longevity of the desktop PCs, we feel,...

Dell Studio XPS Desktop PC

 

Dell produces an Intel Core i7 desktop that's small and relatively cheap.

Dell Studio XPS review

 

Can a grand really buy you one Dell of a system?

Cheapest i7 PC yet ; Loads of memory

Middling graphics card ; Dull design

Certainly not the best PC in the world, but a fairly decent stab at the 'budget' Core i7 though.

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. It's also built into a compact and rather stylish case, which gives it a much tidier appearance than most...

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