Default The Dell Studio XPS 7100 Unboxing & First Impressions

<p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/8PxnmsoanEc&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/8PxnmsoanEc&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" /></object></p><p>Above is part one of an unboxing and first impressions video of the <a href="http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/studio-xps-7100?c=us&amp;l=en&amp;s=dhs&amp;cs=19" target="_blank">Dell Studio XPS 7100</a>, a desktop PC from Dell. This particular model I ordered runs Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and is powered by an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T. This is AMD's six-core CPU, running at 2.8 Ghz with a turbo boost up to 3.3 Ghz. This particular configuration of the XPS 7100 also includes an ATI Radeon HD 5450 with 1 GB of RAM. It has a 750 GB 7200 RPM hard drive, a Blu-ray reader/CD/DVD burner, 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, memory card slots, and gigabit Ethernet. Part two after the break. <MORE /></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZsYEfo9c9cA&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZsYEfo9c9cA&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" /></object></p><p>My initial tests of the XPS 7100 were quite positive - it's an impressive system with surprising performance for the money. Prices will vary depending on country, but I managed to snag this unit using a coupon with an end price of $799 CAD. Stay tuned for my full review, but if you have any questions, please post them and I'll do my best to answer them.</p><p><em>Jason Dunn owns and operates&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thoughtsmedia.com/" target="_blank">Thoughts Media Inc.</a>, a company dedicated to creating the best in online communities.
