Yeah. I am wondering what is the better deal. Buying a Dell XPS8500 from Dell directly or buying this specific setup on BJS.com.
Now the price on BJS.com is lower. However that doesnt mean it is the better setup. I know this is probably a confusing question. Just wondering if more people would buy the BJs.com Dell or one from DELL directly. Here are the specs for the one at BJs.

The BJ's one is out of stock according to their site, so that one seems to be out of the question. I'm not sure why they say 640M graphics card as the M cards are notebook ones :S
