Dell's Tiny & Powerful XPS 210

Tiny is fine but powerful is very important in a computer, especially one aimed at PC gaming. It looks as though Dell has it right with the XPS 210, the rig measures in at a Lilliputian 12.5” tall x 14.5” deep and 3.7” thick. Those measurements sound more like the specs of a boring workstation rather than a gaming machine.

Yet even with the small size, Dell crams up to a 500GB HDD inside the tiny chassis and up to 4GB of dual channel DDR2 RAM. The heart of the new XPS 210 is an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU from an E6300 up to an E6700. Graphics are a bit lacking for a gaming machine with the best offering being a single 256 MB X1300 Pro. Then you couldn’t fit a dual slot X1900 XTX inside the small enclosure, let alone a Crossfire setup. Sound is handled by an internal 7.1 channel audio sub-system or an integrated SoundBlaster Audigy HD software edition sound processor. Pricing for the XPS 210 starts at $1099, but expect to pay much more than that for a fully loaded system. To get a smaller XPS system you will need to go with something like the XPS M2010.
