What do you all think about these XPS versus the Alienware X51 deals they had last week? The X51 seemed to be more bang for the buck, but you probably lose some ability to upgrade. By the same token seems like a lot of people would prefer the X51 form factor. Is either type more reliable than the other? Thanks for any thoughts!
I have done some research on this and pricing is very similar with the sale between these both machines but from what i gather is the xps 8500 is better for cooling purposes being its bigger and also better for gaming as it can fit a bigger graphics card and not only that you can upgrade the power supply to a bigger 1 in the xps and with the x51 you really cant fit much more in there so your limited to upgrades. My plan is to slowly upgrade my xps 8500 with a bigger card , ps and eventually put everything into a cool case.
Oh men, just 2 days ago ordered XPS 8500 i5 basis config. Now I see I could get it for $170 less...
Should I just refuse delivery w/o even opening the box? or call Dell for price adjustment?
Any thoughts how to avoid restocking fee?
Good deal. I just bought an XPS 8500 with the following specs for $622 (originally $889.00)
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium
2 TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
Processor: Intel Core 3rd Gen i7-3770 Processor (3.40 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.90 GHz)
16GB, DDR3 UDIMM Memory, 1600MHz, non ECC (4 x 4GB DIMMs)
AMD Radeon HD 7570 1GB GDDR5
16X DVD +/- RW Drive
Similar specs to $875 XPS 8500 deal from a couple days ago, except you lose the SSD and BluRay Drive, and get a worse video card
how did u get it for that price. im looking for one but they are all 850 or more is there a coupon code?
Maybe my Yoga will arrive in time for me to put it through the ringer and still decide if I want the XPS 12. Like jnads, I would have hopped on this if this deal popped up first.
I have the XPS 12 and can say that it is a great machine but the battery life is kind of bad and also the trackpad sucks REALLY badly due to it either not registering my movements or worse, throwing me into the metro interface while I am just navigating within a document. NOTE: I have the core i7 version, which could probably account for the poor battery life (3.5 hours watching netflix before battery is dead).
