XPS components are of higher quality and system of excellent design than Inspiron.
specs on paper do not mention meticulous care into details.
XPS case tends to be more elegantly designed than Inspiron.
Basically the Dell desktop class goes from Alienware to XPS to Optiplex to Inspiron in descending class, similar to automobile.
according to some the last great XPS was 730X in 2008 that directly competed with Alienware Area 51. The XPS studio 9100 or 630i were more economical models. The 8100-8900 XPS were mainstream consumer desktop not HEDT, losing eXtreme in spirit while carrying on eXtreme logo.
New Inspiron tends to use proprietary PSU limiting upgrade potential to support fast video card. XPS uses standard ATX PSU with no such limitation. XPS has better future proof than Inspiron.
Hi, @redxps630 ,
"XPS uses standard ATX PSU with no such limitation. XPS has better future proof than Inspiron."
The XPS8940, also uses a Proprietary PSU - hence is not "Future-Proof"!
