VERDICT

By buying these desktops you save a lot of money on your electricity bills, hehe not really, but these processors are very energy efficient and does not consume a lot of power. A small warning for pros out there, please don’t overclock your Ivy Bridge processors as there are reports on the web that they run hot compared to the Sandy bridge processors when overclocked. Also if you like living on the Bleeding edge buying Intel’s 3rd generation desktops will certainly not be a bad choice for you!

So what are your thoughts? Will you buy these chics or go with the good old Sandy Bridge processors instead, comment and let us know your thoughts.

    I usually prefer Toshiba for laptops and Dell and Compaq for desktops. They are really durable and does not require too much maintenance. Thanks for the Review!

    variant in the line-up desktop computer by Dell. I think those professionals

    I believe that Dell XPS 8500 increases the value of the company’s top consumer desktop with its fast graphics and SSD storage. And so it attracts the digital content creators, game players and power users who would never use a Digital Storm, or other brand.
