also would you recommend buying your xps? cuz i've owned a lot of dells previously (including one xps) and all of them used to overheat :(
do not recommend, why i refused to give a clear point of what exact laptop model. i actually dont recommend going the overkill computer route unless you have purpose to push the hardware past it's limit. though this laptop doesnt really have too much overheating issues; i remember there was a linux bug or something that led this thing to not shutting its fan off + maxing out cpu frequencies, and damn near preparing this thing to melt. other than that its usually pretty good at stuff but it will not run "cool." if you can get by with a desktop you should do that.
