So let's dive into what it was like when I received it, and the road we're on. What is the goal? When I purchased the machine Sunday, I had a couple of goals.
First and foremost, it's a video editing workstation. I wanted a Quad core machine that could handle intense high definition and standard definition encoding, decoding and transcoding. Second, I figured if I held out long enough, the Windows Vista market would mature and I could add premium high definition television recording.
TiVo is still handling the bulk of those duties at the moment. The Package The box arrived via Fedex in a light rain. I'm glad it wasn't a heavy rain because the hand holds are open into the box. There was no water damage.

Inside the box was the typical foam enclosure and a special XPS branded pack of goodies including a mouse pad, wire ties, wiping cloth, binder for disks, etc. If you can afford the Dell 24" widescreen LCD, get one. I also have a 20" 4: This gives you a ton of viewing options for the various applications and media you might view. The 24" is running x and the 20" is running x I use a KVM switch with these two monitors for the machines I own and use for work. The XPS computer is a medium to large size case. There's easy access into the unit and it is designed to hold up to Dell XPS 420 AMD Radeon HD 2400 PRO hard drives, one or more DVD drives, media readers, etc.
I ordered my Dell with the cheapest hard drive they offer knowing I will be immediately replacing the drives through other sources to cut costs. I also ordered it with the standard 3GB of memory.
The main two hard drive bays are quick access requiring no screws. There is power routed to both bays. If you order like I did but plan to add another drive, make sure you buy a SATA cable with the right angle end.

A standard SATA cable will protrude too much and prevent case closure. I already knew that and had a cable in my drawer already.
The machine is very quiet. There is plenty of ventilation through the case and it will be easily vacuumed when it's time to get rid of some of the dust. The case itself is pretty attractive with the piano black front and silver sides.

I see a future for that port. I haven't decided what if anything I'll use it for, but you can add all sort of Vista Sideshow gadgets and have it display stuff like the weather, number of unread inbox messages, stock ticker, etc. It'll be fun to play with that later but it's a back burner item for now.

I fired the machine up and took a look around but that was pretty short lived. I installed Ghost 12 and made an image of the factory install then pulled the GB drive out of the box.
