PC giant Dell has fixed an error relating to detail specifications of its new Studio XPS 7100 on the company’s India website.
As we reported two days ago, the XPS 7100 was originally advertised at its Rs49,990 price tag featuring an AMD Phenom II X4 945 processor with a “6C” code intimating it was a six-core processor when in fact it was a quad-core chip only.
The PC giant has today updated the India website to now show the Phenom II X6 1035T as the default option at the Rs49,990 price. The quad-core X4 945 processor option has been removed.
The company has also significantly dropped the price of its CPU upgrades as well.
The cost to choose the top-drawer Phenom II X6 1055T processor previously added an extra Rs5,898 to the price. Today, the upgrade costs just Rs2,051 extra – a saving of Rs3,800 or so.
Dell’s fix significantly improves the value of the Studio XPS 7100 although serious users would do well to upgrade the hard drive. Hard drive capacity is one the core reasons why PCs are often upgraded before its necessary. Purchasing extra storage space initially will often enable a PC to last considerably longer before being considered out-of-date.
