Dell XPS 200 - First Take

/ Updated: June 12, 2006 3:02 AM PDT

The Dell XPS 200 is a lean version of the XPS 400, which is bigger and offers a greater degree of customization. By sacrificing some configuration options, Dell offers you a system with a thin case and a small footprint. Like the XPS 400, pricing for the XPS 200 starts at $990. Two areas where your choices are limited are with the graphics and the hard drive. The only graphics card offered is the low-profile, midrange ATI Radeon X600 SE, which means gamers need not apply. And serious TV archivists will balk at only three hard drive options, the largest of which is 320GB. By comparison, you can buy an XPS 400 with 640GB of hard drive space. But the system's slim design and sharp looks make it an easy-on-the-eyes purchase for the vast majority of home users. A specialized XPS service code lets you bypass the usual long wait time and speak with an XPS-trained technician.
