Hey I took the liberty of customizing a Dell XPS machine myself for you. Bellow is the specs for the machine, now a few things. You really didn't give much information about specifically what this machine would be for, and you also did not give to much insight on what you really wanted to spend, so judging from the price you were talking about in your original thread, I went ahead and put this together.
It is interesting, I spent 2 hours last night researching and trying to get halfway through the steps Dell has one go through when putting this Notebook together. I started wondering what they were doing by asking about GPS, all these extra stuff like batteries, chargers, etc. Anyway, I finally got some help from the XPS Expert Chat guy who convinced me to save it in a cart and he would help me finish tomorrow. he said he would get some kind of credit for helping or selling it to me. The last step had it at about $2300. I am not a gamer, no video making, just a Wellness Coach who needs the majority of the "main" stuff it has.
I am wondering if there is someone who would like to be my mentor as I try and put together the XPS that will be best for my needs. I have no idea what to think about Vista. I love XP Pro so that is what I got with the possibility of getting Vista and paying $10 for shipping. You think they could pay some of the minor fees i someone is buying a nearly $3000 machine.
But as far as many of the other stuff, I have a feeling they are double accessories, although they do not say it.
I would like to go through what I am purchasing who has no ties with Dell. Ah, BTW, I went to retrieve my notebook this am twice and it was there. However tonight it is gone. I think that XPS Expert guy got rid of it because he could not reach me today. I was at work all day so I had my cell off.
So that is where I stand and would like some help. If anybody knows about these processors, hard drives, RAM, etc. I would appreciate some help. Maybe we could both go on the site and interact that way somehow.
Anyway, my e-mail (which is a dumb move I know but I will delete all the e-mails after I find someone to help me. This is an address I use for stuff like this anyway.
Much thanks ahead of time. Happy and Blessed New Year,
Kooler the Man to Have.
