    I thought my $250 19in LCD and my $850 pentium D computer was just a bit too cheap.

    I wonder if dell might uptick their prices a bit after the earnings miss.
  2. they cant. the world is flooded with cheap hardware.

    I doubt they would increase prices. They focus on large volume working with an efficient supply chain.

    Not too sure exactly what you mean. These are the specs:

    Dimension XPS Gen 5

    * DIMENSION XPS GEN 5 Pentium® 4 Processor 650 with HT Technology (3.40GHz, 800 FSB)

    * Hard Drive 250GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)
    * CD or DVD Drive Dual Drives: 48x CD-RW Drive + 16x DVD+/-RW w/ double layer write capable
    * Sound Cards Sound Blaster Audigy™ 2 ZS (D) Card w/Dolby 5.1, IEEE 1394 capability
    * Media Center Enhancements Single TV Tuner with Remote Control TVT1


    P.S I think I'll call and change my order. I really would like to get the dual core CPU.

  7. Aside from the dual core CPU issue, you're obviously set up as is to handle a lot more than trading, unless you want to add another 1GB of memory at some point.

    A computing stalwart, indeed. See the April PC Magazine review for its closely configured XPS Gen 5:,1759,1784526,00.asp
  8. dualcore -- hyperthreading--
    does the OS/software have to be specifically designed to support these new features? for example i remember MMX needed specific codes to take advantage of it.

    Check out this post a former employee from Dell made, apparently you can get a 20-30% discount every day.
