Dell XPS 420 Features SideShow Technology

The SideShow team blog announced the new Dell XPS 420 desktop PC that features Windows SideShow technology. With an external screen on the top of the desktop's tower, you have instant access to control media playback, browse photos, and view RSS feeds, email and more. The high-end PC also has some nice specs:

* Intel processors, up to Core 2 Extreme 3 GHz
* Vista Home Premium or Ultimate
* Up to 4 GB RAM
* Up to 2 terabyte RAID hard drives
* Up to a Blu-Ray drive and dual layer DVD R/W drives
* Up to 768MB nVidia GeForce 8800 GTX
* Available AGEIA® PhysX® physics accelerator
* Up to Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Music audio (cannot order advanced audio and the PhysX card, presumably due to a lack of expansion slots)
* Available ATI Theater 650 PRO Combo TV Tuner with up to Gyroscopic Remote and Xcelerator
* Comes with Dell Bluetooth Wireless Media Hub + Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse
* 802.11b/g wifi card (but no available 802.11n)
* Up to Bose Companion 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System
* Free 10GB DataSafe Online Backup for 1 Year

The SideShow team says this is just the first of many SideShow-enabled products, with more to come over the next few months. I can't wait to see what those will be! (Thanks to Nathan for the spec list)

    Good lookin' and performing computer. But, like I said about the Blackbird, and still stand on, this product a bit over-priced for these specifications. Which, you have to expect that from a good business, yet still, it goes quite a bit over the line of "bang for your buck". I like the case, though.

    I agree that it's a little pricey for the components... I feel I could build it myself with higher end components for a lower price.  But there's the rub; it would not be in a super customized case with perfectly situated wires and of course, a guarantee it will work Smiley
