this was announced a LONG time ago...I wonder why they put out that news article yesterday. Must have just been speculation.

the XPS's aren't that bad..I mean they don't compete with custom...or alienware..but they aren't bad for the average gamer who is a n00b when it comes to PC's.

I highly doubt HP will be bought out. And HP bought, or should I say, "acquired" Compaq.

Personally, I don't care.

The only time I would ever look towards an actual brand would be for a laptop. And even then, i'd get some cheaper laptop that is somewhat weak in terms of performance but good on battery.

I'd rather keep the gaming to the custom built (BY ME) desktop, and leave the workstation use to the branded laptop.
