Don't worry guys, once you graduate high school you might be able to afford one without your parents' help!
If I wanted an XPS2 I would have ordered one. To assume that anyone who went with the i9300 only did so because they couldn't afford the XPS2 is a bit immature and ironically that statement sounds like it's coming from a 'high-schooler'.
Furthermore, both models cost about the same when decked out so I am not sure why one is held in a higher regard than the other - especially to those of us who don't game.
I am a tech junkie and I've got the cash, but I simply chose not to get one. Why? I am more interested in long battery life than Doom3 frame-rates, and I personally find the design of the XPS2 a bit garish. Therefore, I opted for the more minimalist design of the i9300.
However, if I ever do warm up to the XPS2, I'll get a couple of those too.
