So I’m looking to buy a new desktop primarily for photo processing and editing. I’m a novice at most computer stuff. How much of a difference will the “new” sandy bridge processors make over the current Dell studio xps 9100 offering for 999 (that includes Intel® Core™i7-930 processor(8MB L2 Cache, 2.80GHz)) that is going on this weekend? Am I correct in understanding that the current offering is not the Sandy Bridge architecture since there was some non-understandable issue and that it wont be resolved until April?
I really dont know how much or what kind of improvement that is supposed to make, but I figure if I’m going to buy a machine I might as well get something good.
Building a unit myself is not an option. 1k-1500 is the price range.
