Now it appears that you can choose the 15.6 Multi-Touch HD WLED TL (1366x768) for no additional charge. I'm not sure if that's normal, but it seemed pretty slick to me. The 100 off and free shipping codes are thanks to Shah_vm's earlier post.

I've had one of the xps 15 refurbs with this processor for a little while now. Processor is awesome. Most Linux Kernels right now do not support this processor (At least for the moment). Fedora 15 32 and 64 don't work for sure. I've still got to try Ubuntu 11,04, which supposedly works with some small issues. Kinda bummed me out the other day when I tried to install a couple different flavors of Linux I wanted to try.
Then again its an i7, so virtual machines are no problem.
Unfortunately you have to buy a "select" pre packaged deal to get the xbox.
My friend bought a run of the mill machine (Alienware M17x) from Dell, and it didnt come with the xbox. He didnt even buy it within the promo period. But he called them up...first person (they said they were a mgr), declined, the second time he called, the guy said no problem. They set up an invoice to have it shipped...for some reason it says he was charged...he called back to confirm...they said doubly sure...no charge!
So you might be eligible. I am going to try to get one with the HP DV6T...but im not holding my breath.
