Hi there,

The Dell Studio XPS 16 is a good option for you. It has 500 GB storage, 4 GB RAM, and an 2.26 GHz Intel® Core™ i5-430M processor. It meets all your specs and is within your price range.

What do you think?

Yes, that's exactly what I was thinking of,

I'm deciding wether DELL studio XPS 16 or DELL 1558.

Both can do the job?

Thank you!!

Both can do the job very well.

Here are some reviews:
Dell Studio 15
Dell Studio XPS 16 (the internal hardware has been updated since most of the reviews here were published)

Hi there,

Both are great laptops, but I would recommend the Dell Studio XPS 16 over the Dell Studio 15 for your needs. It has the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3670 graphics which you be valuable for some of the programs you will be running.
