Having been browsing through ebay over the last three weeks looking for a decent priced i7 computer, it quickly became apparent that there were none. All i7 computers I came across (i7 920) were over £850 with a weak 9400GT graphics card... and no OS whats happening? Keep up with the prices guys, Dell are selling i7 920 rigs of the Studio XPS type for a basic rate of £600... WITH vista installed! If you choose a rig with a screen and better graphics card, it costs £825.. with mouse and audio, and OS, and.. a screen... It seems that many of the computer sellers have become victims of the credit crunch and purchased their hardware 3 months ago when the prices were doubled..
For those who say Dell are crap.. yes, they do tend to skimp on some areas.. however a studio xps can be easily converted, for very little money, into the ultimate
