I think it would be cool to check one out, but I can have better performance out of my A7N8X D/3200+ tower and it doesn't weigh too much more, and is a whole lot cheaper. I'm glad your enjoying the XPS (it is fast for sure) but seriously, a Latitude D600 (what I have) seems like what a laptop is supposed to be. For gaming and pure speed my home-built will do the job.
Have fun with it though.
