Dell Studio Desktop
First Dell desktop with 64-bit Vista option; onsite service.
Competition offers more configuration options at better prices; clunky Dell-branded receiver accessories hurt visual appeal; icon software targets the wrong aspects of Apple systems.
Dell's new Studio Desktop introduces 64-bit Windows Vista to the Dell desktop line-up, but that's about the only thing this system does well. Its biggest, and deal-killing, fault is the overpriced and less than aggressive selection of configuration options.
