Are you tired of those cumbersome desktop pc’s with heavy obsolete towers that make you quiver at the thought of having to carry them to your new home, apartment or even to work? Even though laptops are easier to handle and are therefore arguably more convenient to the consumer, they have their own disadvantages as well. They usually do not have as much power as the desktop pc’s.
To our relief, Dell has come out with the godzilla of Notebooks with many fantastic features that compensate both desktops and laptops in ways that they are deprived. Want specifics? A few months ago, Dell started selling this "monster" of a laptop with a 20.1 inch screen, 8 speaker surround sound package, and a detachable bluetooth keyboard, a bluetooth mouse and a mutli-format memory card reader to name a few.
More Terrific Features
• Intel Core 2GHz/667MHz T2500 Duo Processor
• Windows Media Center Edition 2005
• Windows Vista Capable (The future of Windows)
• 256 MB ATI MOBILITY RADEON X1800 graphics card that offers big power for multimedia and gaming.
• 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz
• 240GB 5400 RPM SATA Hard Drives
• Slot Load CD/DVD Burner (DVD +/-RW)
• It has a 1.3 mega-pixel video camera and an array microphone than enables the user to enjoy larger-than-life video chat or conferencing.
How much does it cost?
Presumably, this luggable costs more than its desktop equivalents. One would have to invest a whopping $4,000 to own one of these fancy high-tech notebooks.
Since the XPS 2010 has similar features to a desktop pc, one would assume that it would also be quite heavy though not as heavy as a desktop pc. It weighs a thumping 18 lbs. In comparison to a desktop pc it is portable to some extent.
The XPS 2010 media mogul is an attractive alternative to the hulking desktop pc. Where power is concerned, these laptops are equal to, if not better than regular desktop pc’s. Memory is upgradeable up to 4 GB Dual channel memory not to mention that it has the power and capacity to support extreme multimedia. In addition, you can turn your XPS 2010 into a television and digital recorder in one; you can watch, pause and record live TV. Watch out Tivo!
