Dell's offering the machine with a choice of high-end Nvidia graphics cards - though not the GeForce 8800 GTX, we notice - delivering up to Quad SLI performance, and a Creative X-Fi sound card. However, the company appears to have dropped the PhysX physics card included with early versions of the 700.

Prices start at $3,699/£2,865, including VAT but not shipping. ®
