    Wait, flames? That means a 5hp gain right? I mean, I drive a VW so I'm not really sure what the flame count is now. But wow, that's one ugly PeeCee!

    Oh man, I didn't even see the skull. That really just made me giggle. I'm still trying to figure out the point of quad SLI with a single 20"+ monitor. Anyone?

    Eventually better frame rates, but it seems SLI doesn't help quite as much as it did in the 3dfx days.

    Dell must be doing something right, as they're still profitable. Thus, I figure they have a target market in mind.

    iGary, do you have link to this pic? I cannot find a Dell Renegade system anywhere.

    EDIT: Nevermind.. found it:

    Ugh. How much does one of these run anyways? And I mean, one of THESE. Flames, skulls, quadSLI and signature! haha Maybe a trade for my powerbook and my girlfriends powermac? I really think flames will help my computing experience.

    Those specs MORE than make up for the case... in fact, I'd probibly remove the case alltogether: imagine the HEAT from that thing! :eek:

    By the way, the 4.26 GHz Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition is overclocked AND under warranty, so if it breaks due to overclocking, Dell will replace it :eek:

    Wow, removing the case seems like a good idea. That's actually a pretty kick ass computer, I dare say. Needs some OS X lovin' though.

    I'd never be man enough for the quadSLI though. That's for sure.

    It's not dull. Actually, I kind of like it. It would grow old quickly but it's different. The gray/silver/black x86 PCs really look bad. I'm not saying that I would buy one, just that I think it's a good change.

    The use of flames on that case is no coincidence...

    Maybe they should've gone with AMD instead.

    Luckily, in other news today, their CEO hinted that they're leaving Intel for AMD :D W00t!

    As for the XPS, specs wise, it's a biatch :p Lookswise... I dunno... it'd be a lot better if it at least had an X-Window in the side :D

    Now this I like:
    :eek::eek::eek:

    Damn, that thing must get at least 4000fps in Quake 3 :eek:

    :D

    Yeah, sure. Like they've done a hundred times before.

    Dell, thinking out loud: "AMD sure looks good now."
    Intel, not thinking out loud: "Hmm... Can't have any of that, can we?"
    Intel, to Dell: "Here's an insane rebate. Please stay with us. We love you."
    Dell and Intel hugs and kisses.


    For another version of this story, replace Dell with most PC companies, Intel with Microsoft (or Balmer), and AMD with Linux.

    Wow now that is ugly

    It is nice airbrush work but that still doesn't makeup for the Windows system inside. So it can render video fast, but for how long? Maybe DELL thinks they can sell on looks alone, but price is far to high for a virus catcher. No thanks, I'll take a G5 Quad and enjoy my computer experience. :eek:
