I seem to be gathering some of these to me. I love the case design, the engineering, and Dell's choice of components.

Very cool!

I have never seen this XPS units before.

I have a laptop XPS from...the mid-2000s that is really cool, it has good components for the time. It acutally has similar specs. A Core 2 Duo, and an NVIDA chipset for the GPU, I wonder if they are in the same family.

What I really like is that it has a really neat multi-colour LED set throughout the case. You can set all the colours in the BIOS which is neat. The thing I do not like is when my son was a baby, he ripped off some keycaps. x3 Also it is very prone to overheating.
