XPS Gen 2 Users - Need feedback


I am going to purchase the Dell XPS Gen 2 system. though it is pricey, I heard this is the best system for gaming.

I would the users who own the machine currently to provide feedback on the following issues.

1) How long have you had it. what is the specs. Any Problems.
2) How is the support from Dell. (did you updrade the Warranty)
3) How is gaming Performance
4) Is the machine faster. The guy in the Dell Store ran a Demo (Gas Station). It took a while to load but the Demo itself was really great.
5) How is the speed when other applications are run for ex. I am a Oracle Guy and will need to run Oracle Apps.
6) How the DVD-RW drive speed.
7) How good is Movie Creation.

If you're going to spend so much, don't buy a dell. You can build your own computer or buy from a lot of so called "generic companies" in "computer shopper magazine (a cnet publication). Look through it, many manufacturers. I'd look at voodo, overdrive, abs, cyberpower,ibuypower, hypersonic, monarch, velocitymicro. Building your own is the very best. Or if you really want that, i would go for the belocity micro

We have too many Dells at the office. Boring things they are. Not much to report.

About DVD recorders in laptops. Almost all of them are 2X with a few at 4X but not a great place for a recorder since you pay a premium for such a slow drive. This is something you can get some external for not much that will be dual layer and maybe 8 times faster.
