Dell Studio XPS 8000 unveiled

Dell quickly seized on the launch of Intel's Lynnfield architecture by introducing a new system to take advantage of it. The Studio XPS 8000 is a smaller, less costly counterpart to the Studio XPS 435 (to be rebranded as the 9000) and starts off with a 2.66GHz Core i5 and more modest Radeon HD 4350 dedicated graphics to give most of what higher-end users expect but without having to scale up to a full Core i7 system and mid-range visuals. It continues to share the basic chassis concept of the 435 and has both a tray for peripherals and cooling designed for airflow first.

The base model starts at $799 with both of the mentioned components as well as 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 500GB hard disk and a DVD burner. More advanced versions can scale up to Lynnfield-based 2.8GHz or 2.93GHz Core i7 chips, video upgrades that top out at a GeForce GTX 260, Blu-ray optical drives and up to 2TB of storage in a RAID stripe.

Dell hasn't said when it expects orders placed today to begin shipping.
