Part of the problem is that there isn't an XPS 16 review here.
I'm partially to blame for that as I've had mine for almost a year now and haven't written a review.
I will say this in a brief summary-
The XPS 16 is an awesome all-around laptop. It handles Blu-Ray's with no problem, plays some games (not the best system for that), and has a gorgeous HD screen (1920x1080).
There are a few things that are different on my system as opposed to the one's being offered now- First, the LCD is only a 15.6" LED backlit LCD, whereas mine is a 16" RGB LED LCD screen. Secondly, the gpu on the one being sold is much nicer than mine (I have the ATI HD3670, the one now I do believe has a 4670). Third, the one now has a Core i7 option, whereas mine is the Core 2 Duo T9400. It does get a bit warm, but nothing too awful especially if you use it as a desktop replacement like I do, and keep it on a laptop cooler. When I'm done with my Air National Guard activation, I am going to use it in my bedroom as the media/Blu-Ray connection for my 32" HD LCD TV (Mine has the HDMI port).
In summary, I highly recommend this laptop as it's an all-around good system.
