+6 More reasons against
Only 4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
The XPS 8700 supports a better on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version than most comparable spec desktop computers that came out in the last 12 months. This computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, whereas most similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it support a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version. The worst on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version of all medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the XPS 8700 is 4 and the best is 4.4.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This personal computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many recently released medium processor core computers.
Only One DisplayPort
The XPS 8700 is a one DisplayPort personal computer.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
New similar spec PCs have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,900MHz. With a memory clock speed of only 1,600 megahertz, the XPS 8700 has one of the slower memory clock speeds amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
At 13.8 kilograms, the XPS 8700 is very heavy compared to most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the XPS 8700. The weights of recently released comparable spec desktop computers range from 38g to 23kg, and the average weight is 7kg.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL XPS 8700
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.4 gigahertz, the XPS 8700 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that were released around the same time as the XPS 8700.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
