Enix has the highest resolution windows based on one and it's in line with the point seven inch iMac. So Dell sells the system and for fixed configurations this is -- 1599.

Only standard dvd burner in the system that feels a little bit and congress for the rest the market given that Blu-ray is so widely available. -- Blu-ray have to spend for the 1999. Version of the system. Otherwise the system is pretty fast and given its high resolution modern the fact that it's unique it's actually pretty fairly priced.
