My brother is awesome and not only because he buys me the best geeky birthday present. For my birthday this year, he bought me a new DELL XPS desktop with the latest Intel Core i7 processor. The Core i7 is a quad-core processor with hyper-threading that appear as 8 separate processors to the operating system, giving the machine some serious processing horsepower.
My configuration is the Intel Core i7-920 processor(8MB L3 Cache 2.66GHz), 6GB of RAM (DDR3 SDRAM at 1067MHz), ATI RADEON HD4670 512MB video card and Serial ATA II RAID 0 With Dual640GB Hard Drives for a total of 1.2 TB onboard. The machine also came with combo Blu-Ray/DVD/CD reader and burner along with 64-bit Vista. Here are the complete tech specs for the geeks out there.

How much? Would you mind sharing
Wow, that is one heck of a present. I don't get anything from my brothers.
You are a lucky guy to have a brother like yours. I hope you can make that pc sing and dance. Happy Birthday to you Vinny! I hope you have a great day!
Hi Lisa and thank you very much for your birthday wishes. I was hoping to see you in person when I was in Miami but I couldn't stay long 🙂 I'm sure you guys must be busy with baseball season in full swing. Hope all is well and thanks again.
