"CPU or mother board failed in 3rd year"1.0 starson by kvs13156
Pros: Nice appearance, quiet, very powerful, easy to access components.
Cons: The system set in an air conditioned office and was well treated. Trouble shooting determined that either the mother board or the CPU was bad. Dell repair cost was uneconomical. I expect more than 3 years performance out of Dell's XPS system.
Summary: Dell's XPS is supposed to be the best. I purchased and XPS system in 1999 that finally died this past year. This system did not live up to its reputation. Its a Yugo in a Rolls package.
