Man, those AW guys sure hate us for paying less for a computer that performs the same/better than their priced-to-hell beasts, don't they?
I respect the AW systems and I've said I'd love to have one if they do offer a discount sometime. It is hard going over to that side and bringing up Dell. The MOST interesting thing was that one guy over there decided to "admit" that the XPS line could produce equal gaming results and 3dMARK scores, but he said it like:
"All Dell does is create an XPS that can hit benchmarks and produce framrates and can't do anything else. "
Well, isnt that what a gaming system is supposed to do?
I think we on the Dell side are more open to both sides of the story, while SOME over at AW are dead set on ripping Dell to shreds, and won't admit ANY positives about the XPS line. Then they start reporting the posts to the moderators and claim "trolls".
It's better to just keep the Dell opinions here, and let them keep their opinions over there. It makes for a nicer forum.
