Dell XPS 410 With Core 2 Duo Reviewed (Verdict: The Opposite of Slow)

The XPS 410, with Intel's Core 2 Duo E6600 inside, is one speedy entertainment machine. Although not thrifty by any means at $2,405, this unit comes with a 20-inch widescreen LCD and lots of gamer and power-user components inside.

The GeForce7900 graphics card, dual TV Tuner, dual-port Firewire Card, and dual 320GB Serial ATA hard drives (configured in RAID0 or 1) gets you a boat-load of performance. Again, the two and a half grand price tag may put this out of range for bargain hunters, but for people who love the bleeding edge Core 2 Duo CPUs, Dell's got a juicy unit with your name on it.
