    Are u referring to the XPS 710 which is to be launched with the Intel Core2Extreme Quad Core Proc and so on.That the one thats supposed to get a 30" monitor with 1920x1200 resolution..............etc.As soon as get any update on that I let u guys knw.

    Also as far as Dell is concerned the most expensive computer till date that they built was the DeLL XPS 600 RENEGADE which was custom built limited edition only(unofficially to declare its acquisition of the XPS brand biggest and only rival in the world Alienware)
    __________
    to dell's advantage is its the value of the mammoth brand "DeLL".No one dares refuse them.Intel had for the first time factory overclocked a Intel Pentium Extreme Edition Dual Core Proc to 4.26Ghz for the XPS 600 Renegade and so on.:cool:

    It means two tuners on a single card so that you can watch one channel while recording another. The Analog card isnt good because they should have provided a HDTV tuner for such a high end system.
