So, I have been looking at the Dell Studio XPS 9000. Is this computer good for photo-editing? Also, what monitors would you guys suggest I look at? Thanks
I have the little brother, the 435MT (9000 is technically called the 435T), and I can tell you it's fast, blazing fast. However, unless you plan on upgrading it yourself, or want to do heavy gaming, go with the Studio XPS 8000 with the i7 860. In either case, it's likely cheaper to get the minimum amount of ram and buy it elsewhere (you can get 8gb for $200, 12gb for $300) and upgrade yourself, same with graphics card if you need it (unless you do heavy video editing, no need). Upgrading the HDD yourself (or just adding more) is easy and cheaper than going though them too.
Monitor wise, 2209WFP, 2408WFP, u2410, u2711. There are also 23" 1080p IPS panels from other manufacturers, but don't know much about those.
I don't hate macs or OSX, I hate people and statements that portray them as better than anything else. Macs are A solution, not THE solution. Get a good desktop i7 with Windows 7 and come tell me that sucks for photo or video editing.
