I haven't seen a mainstream desktop this drool-drippingly designed since Voodoo's beautiful Omen box. The Studio XPS 435 isn't quite as lustworthy, but I still can't quite believe it came out of Dell.

Inside the black and red box of curvy is a Core i7, room for up to 24GB of triple-channel RAM—oh yes—and up to 4.5TB of storage, Blu-ray option and a 1GB ATI Radeon HD4870 HD graphics card, so if you ask if it can play Crysis, you'll be smashed by the banhammer.
