It's more of a Twentieth Anniversary Mac killer. All sexed up and nowhere to go.

it's not that bad. But expensive. But it's an XPS.
Apple does not make a gaming-oriented anything and has no reason to now that development for OS X will halt for games - with the dual boot stuff.

not sure i would call this "gaming oriented"?

its got a X1800 "mobility" chip as opposed to the full X1600 chip the iMac has...

and i partially agree that gaming for the mac may go slowly downhill -- and thats too bad for some of us (like me) that will never, ever put windows on our macs...

It must suck to not be able to get it right.

It must rock to still make boat loads of money because people don't even consider Apple.

:-(

It is a powerful machine. It's their XPS line, although the video card I'm surprised they ditched the NVIDIA for the ATI - since this is considered a portable (i.e. XPS laptops) for them.

I have a topped out XPS M170 - just missed the duo CPUs.

Pretty, it looks futuristic!

(Aside: That's the ugliest F'ing computer I have ever seen.)
