Summary: This thing is a power house. I bought it to handle my gaming and home office needs and it gets the job done. The shipping was faster than the expected delivery date which was nice, got it in 2 days! It came with zero "fluff" software which was awesome.
Buy it here unless you like the DELL loaded with their usless programs and the obnoxious McAFEAR.

Summary: If you get it direct from Dell it will come with all of their 'C*&P programs which you end up spending a whole day deleting. This one came with only the basic Dell program (NO McAFEAR installed!). 16GB of RAM and a 4 GB NVIDA video card which is fantastic for what I need.
Summary: Delivered well before the expected time. The SATA cable for the hard drive became dislodged in shipment. Had I not known what I was looking at during the initial boot, I'd have been calling tech support or returning it to my local store. It was a simple fix and setup was otherwise smooth.
Pros: extremely quiet lots of space on the hdd easily expanded storage quick and easy setup
Cons: may need to reseat connectors after shipment not up to heavy graphic loads
Summary: I have been using this for music creation using Sonar and it has been pretty good so far with minimal hang-ups. There is plenty of room for storage and I've been able to use lots of effects without crashes. To be continued...
