Default Dell's new lappy

Dell released the XPS M1730 not too long ago, and I was amazed at its specs.

Take a look at some of these:

Cheapest model is about 2700 USD, it comes with:

Core 2 Duo T7500 2.2 Ghz
Vista Home Premium
2 gb DDR2 667mhz RAM
120 GB SATA Hard Drive, 7200 RPM
Dual GeForce 8700 MGT (total of 512 GDDR3 VRAM, and DX10 support)
AGEIA PhysX 100M Graphics Processor
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 A/G mini card
2.0 Integrated Audio
15 month PC-Chillin Anti-Virus/Spyware

The more expensive model costs around 4500 USD, and comes with

Core 2 Extreme X7900 2.8 ghz
Vista Ultimate
2 gb DDR2 667mhz RAM
Dual 200 gb Hard Drives, total of 400 gb storage at 7200 RPM
Dual GeForce 8700 MGT (total of 512 GDDR3 VRAM, and DX10 support)
AGEIA PhysX 100M Graphics Processor
Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 A/G/N mini card
Integrated Sound Blaster HD Audio Technology
24 month McAfee Security Center

And of course, the fully customized version (maxed out parts) costs about 7500 WITH games, software and addons. Probably less than 6500 without. It would cost somewhere around 9000 with the solid state hard drives.

Core 2 Extreme X7900 2.8 ghz
Vista Ultimate
4 gb DDR2 667mhz RAM
Any of these hard drives: 320GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM)
128GB (2x64GB) Solid State Drive
400GB (2x200GB) 7200RPM
500GB (2x250GB) 5400RPM
640GB (2x320GB) 5400RPM
250GB (2x250GB) 5400RPM (RAID 1)
64GB Solid State Drive plus 200GB SATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)
Blu-Ray Disk Reader/ DVD, CD Burner OR DVD-RW, CD-RW combo drive
Dual GeForce 8700 MGT (total of 512 GDDR3 VRAM, and DX10 support)
AGEIA PhysX 100M Graphics Processor
Of course, any games and software Dell happens to be offering at the time.

This lappy features the latest mobile technology. Fast and reliable solid state drives, SLIed graphics cards with DX10 support, 4 gb RAM, 2.8 ghz processors, 17 inch screen high def widescreen with LARGE resoultion...

An amazing computer, can probably give one of the nicer desktop systems a run for its money. Check this thing out:
