Without fanfare or press releases, Dell has launched desktops featuring Intel’s Core i7 CPU. The Studio XPS lineup gain the Core i7-920 2.66GHz or 2.93GHz and start out at a reasonable $1,499. Gamers can opt for the latest Intel CPU and the Dell name (without the Alienware premium) with the XPS 730x starting at $2,599 with the same Core i7-920. Or, spend a bit more cake with the 730x and 730x H2c desktops to buy into the Core i7-965 Extreme overclocked to 3.73GHz starting at $3,999. The only issue is you are going to have to wait a bit with the Studio XPS desktop not shipping until 11/29/08 and the gaming models not going out until 12/19/08.
