    Computer Review: Dell Studio XPS 7100 and the Gateway DX4831-03

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    Today we'll tell a tale of two desktops, the Dell Studio XPS 7100 and the Gateway DX4831-03. The former is designed to appeal to gaming fans, while the latter should please those with more mainstream computing needs.

    The Dell Studio XPS 7100 is a desktop aimed at gaming fans. Besides gaming, the desktop offers solid design and connectivity, as well as a feature set with some extras. The 7100 starts at a base price of $1,149.99. It comes with a standard one-year warranty on parts and labor.

    The base configuration of the XPS 7100 is powered by a 2.8 GHz AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processor. This six-core processor gives it decent performance, although it lags behind some competitors with multi-core Intel chips. Still, you should be able to perform all of your common tasks like Internet surfing, instant messaging, multimedia usage, and more without trouble. To aid with multitasking and running multiple applications at the same time, the desktop comes with 6 GB of DDR3 SDRAM.

    A 1 GB ATI Radeon HD 5870 card is installed to support graphics. This card gives the 7100 the capability to handle almost any modern game out there, making the desktop an attractive choice for gaming fans. A 1.5 TB hard drive is on board to provide more than adequate storage space for most users. Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit is the operating system that comes pre-installed.

    Extra features of the 7100 are highlighted by the inclusion of a Blu-ray drive, allowing you to view the latest DVD technology. This inclusion makes the 7100 a good choice as an entertainment PC as well. Should you need to transfer data from other digital devices, there is a media card reader built in that accepts various formats. So that you can access the fastest wireless networks available, there is 802.11n integrated Wi-Fi. Integrated Wi-Fi is a nice addition and prevents you from having to upgrade to a wireless card post-purchase.
