The new Dell XPS X8700-626BLK Desktop has quite a bit going for it in terms of performance: A powerful Haswell Intel Core processor, big storage space and memory, so you are equipped for any task.. Performing 15% better than the last generation, you can work on memory intensive tasks like video editing, play serious games and run several programs at once.

4th generation Intel Core i5-4440 (6M Cache) processor at 3.3 GHz speed, 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600 MHz, 1 TB 7200 RPM Serial ATA hard drive and Windows 8 operating system- better to be upgraded to Windows 8.1 for more user friendly features.

These power specs can be a little too much for just browsing the net, chatting on Skype, working on spreadsheets but they also won't hurt if you want something fast, robust and powerful and if you can afford this level of performance, although this is not a very expensive machine. But remember you will need to get a monitor too, as it is not included in the price.

And if you want even more performance, you have the option of adding more RAM up to 16 GB and choose the 2TB hard drive if you have a lot of multimedia files to save or get an SSD for faster boot-ups and more speed overall.

You have the amazing NVIDIA GeForce GT 635 as graphics card and it is capable of running the latest 3D games at medium settings, without a hitch. For sound, built-in Internal High-Definition 7.1-channel (6 jack) with Waves MaxxAudio 4 software will not disappoint, in fact you will get the studio quality audio.

Dell XPS X8700-626BLK review
Black Dell XPS has the dimensions of 22.51 x 14.48 x 20.94 inches. Its connectivity options are also some of the best you can get: 4 x USB 2.0 Ports, 6 x USB 3.0 Ports, 16X CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW) optical drive, Bluetooth 4.0, 19-in-1 media card reader and HDMI.

Conclusion: Dell XPS 8700-626BLK features great functionality and appears to be a remarkable desktop computer for those who need more than just a computer for daily tasks. It provides pretty strong performance at any computing stuff you can think of. Price is not too bad either for what you get and Amazon had a nice discount last time I checked. So very highly recommended!
