Dell Studio XPS SX8000-2361 desktop
The Dell Studio XPS SX8000-2361 is a desktop found in retail stores. Its fixed configuration doles out solid performance that should satisfy those looking for an everyday desktop. The XPS SX8000-2361 is available for $1,119.99. It comes with a one-year warranty on parts and labor as well as technical support via Dell's website or their 24-7 toll-free line.
The XPS SX8000-2361 offers excellent performance when compared to other desktops in its price range thanks to its 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 860 processor with 8 MB of L2 cache. This quad-core processor will ensure that the desktop can handle almost any common computing task you throw at it, from Internet browsing to instant messaging to multimedia viewing. It can handle most of your gaming needs as well, even though this particular desktop is not a gaming-centric machine.
Multitasking is a breeze not only due to the impressive processor, but also the 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM that comes installed. Plenty of storage space is available with a 1 TB hard drive for all of your important data. Graphics support comes in the form of a NVIDIA GeForce GTS240 card. It's not the best card out there, especially if you are a hardcore gamer, but it still will handle most games currently on the market without much trouble.
Other features include a DVD drive for listening to and burning CDs as well as watching your favorite DVDs. You also get the ability to connect to the Internet wirelessly with integrated Wi-Fi. A built-in digital media reader is included to allow you to transfer files quickly from other devices, such as digital cameras. The reader supports various formats such as microSD cards, Memory Sticks, and more. As far as the operating system is concerned, Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit comes pre-installed.
Although the Studio XPS SX8000-2361 is a fixed retail configuration, it does offer you some limited expansion options if you feel the need for a little more “kick” from the system in the future. If the 1 TB hard drive is not enough storage, you have room to add an additional hard drive. The 8 GB of RAM can be upgraded up to a maximum of 16 GB. You also get a vacant 1x PCI Express slot and a vacant standard PCI expansion slot.
