I saved a few dollars and have the I3 but added ram to the 8 gig level.
Im pleasently happy with the XPS18 i nthat it serve very well as the family computer. I have a robust desktop to run my virtual machines and work stuff o nbut this it the one I spend a lot of time on Checking email ,watching Netflix movies, my daughter does half her homework at the desk connected to our living area rather than the laptop and desk in her room.
I take this camping as the battery life is great for a portable and sound is more tha nenough for a group of five to watch and hear the movie (I dont rought it much)
Overall I wish I had gotten the I7 as it is the CPU to have but the I3 will do 95% of what I need and the video card is fine for almost all but the demanding newest games. The carry bag from dell is a graet add on to the XPS18 and more ram is always nice.
Plus its a show stopper where ever you go as everyone wants to see it .
I can say I would recomend it to a friend and my daughter may get her own when it time for a new laptop
