On hold..UPDATE

RJ, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Unpacked, set up and began the usual procedures of checking for any problems. The first few minutes were fine then it was time to run windows updates for the WIN7 software. Something I always do when I buy any new computer. Some of these units, like this one have been sitting awhile. Hard drive went toast after the upload and windows was doing the "configuration" utility. A call to dell and surprisingly got a tech on the line after a couple of prompts.

Great Computer

  • Summary: Great computer, but, as a musician, the onboard sound card is not very good. However, with the downloaded manuals, etc.,. should be fairly easy to upgrade.

Excellent computer, good value. Did not come with even a basic speaker.

  • Summary: I purchased an XPS 8500 with 16GB or ram, but they sent me an XPS 8700 with 14GB of ram. The faster processor is nice, and 14GB of ram will do. A few items to note. A few weeks later, Dell started selling the XPS 8700 for the same price I paid of $1,050, only with 12GB of ram, and still no speakers. This makes the advertised original retail price of $2,500 seem like a bunch of hype and possibly misleading. I purchased the square trade 3 year warranty.

Pretty good, but not everything I was hoping for

Dave Beedon, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this particular machine to satisfy certain requirements and I am generally pleased with the way it has worked out. BACKGROUND: My present computers are a Dell 4700 with Windows XP Home Edition and a Dell Inspiron netbook with Windows 7 “something edition.” I love XP and tolerate 7 (but I hate the Windows 7 version of Windows Explorer). The 4700 is showing signs of age with minor quirks that no doubt will get worse with the passage of time.

Joseph McKinney, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the computer so far but I have to be honest and say that Windows 8 is very hard to get used to...that would be the only thing I dislke about the computer so far.
