From the Dell USA website "Up to 16GB of fast 1333MHz DDR3 memory for large data sets". I believe 2GB is the minimum.

my friend has been telling me that usb 3.0 isn't standard... does anyone have any concrete proof that it will be a standard?

Why wouldn't it? Granted, it won't be mainstream at least by end of this year.

so I guess Dell is still over priced.... when will all this be standard in the XPS Series? USB 3.0? 16gb ram? and what happened to the blu ray burners? I am not paying double to purchase their "business line" ...

I really could care less for the FirePro... I am looking for a 5970 w/ 2gb ddr5 and 6 display ports to connect to my dell monitors for photo and video editing.

And I do not want to haul my tower around in the van

The one thing I don't like about Asus Laptops, is I want to configure it to order, they don't have a web site setup as well as Dell for configuring the options you want. You are stuck with what they give you.

That's a small price to pay for a small price to pay.

A nice 32nm quad core i7 (with HT, of course), 12GB of DDR3 (tripple 4GB DIMMs), dual ATi 2GB 5870m's, a 7200rpm 1TB 2.5" drive (1TB models exist, they are just slightly thicker than standard 2.5" drives), dual 256GB gen3 x-18m's in RAID 0 (hopefully coming soon since Intel has their new 22nm or whatever memory), OLED 4k resolution (would be godly on a laptop), and a 18.4" screen.
That would be the only laptop I'd pay $2,500 for.

Crysis that.
