I got the 9300 because it was still cheaper than the XPS, the 1.6 Centrino in Sandra 05 scores nearly as fast as a P4 2.8Gh/800FSB and the 6800 go is very suitible for every game out including EQ2 which imho doesnt really run good even on a 16 pipe 6800 GT. I opted for the smaller drive and more RAM + bag and warranty and still came in under $1350.
Don't get me wrong the XPS is nice but don't douche on my 9300 cause you have penial envy, they are really close.
Anyway love my 9300 no complaints, oh wait one complaint I wish it had HT to be honest, Centrino is nice as it is more closely tied to the P3 than P4, just with the P4 goodies, but you really cannot do a lot of multitasking at once, but that is a very small thing, it is still just as fast as my two desktops.
