Dell Studio XPS 8000
Released September, 2009
The Pros:Case has nice clean lines without being needlessly ornamental or boxy. Runs silently, generally don't hear any of the fans. Can process HD video at a reasonable pace.
The Cons:Turbo Boost wasn't activated by default, need to go into the BIOS and do it manually. Comes loaded with pre-installed software that slows the machine down noticeably.
