I am still VERY VERY VERY happy with my DELL Inspiron XPS 2 machine.
Pimped out to the max and running like a dream.
Use it for a lot of things, and still offers stellar game performance in next-gen titles like Prey.
(Took my lappy over to girl, and played Prey as she kept her family busy since it was her birthday... not my thing haha!)
My lappy will still be fine in a year or two.
And by that time there will be even greater technology in all area's of the word.
Until then... I am not getting even a bit jelous over those with a better XPS 2 machine (because it's still the XPS baby, just with design changes in the chasis and some new hardware) as I still enjoy this monster almost every day!!!
