Dell's XPS 720 upgrade kit revealed
XPS 700 was delayed last year, the company attempted to make things right by promising a free Core 2 Duo upgrade when those boards became availabile -- and now the Direct2Dell blog has some shots of the kit 700 owners can expect to receive when the program goes live. It's pretty much what you'd expect: the new mobo from the XPS 720, and the mounting hardware and front I/O panel to match. Somewhat more interesting is the option to upgrade to an Intel QX6700 Core 2 Quad for 25% off Dell's usual price, and the fact that XPS 710 owners will also be able to get in on the upgrade action -- although they'll have to pay for the privilege. We gotta hand it to Dell -- lately they've been pretty good at the whole lemons / lemonade thing. Let's hope a few more companies take the hint.
