The cheap, high-performance desktop computers of the 1990s were a great time to be a geek.
But those machines were more expensive than today’s PCs, which offer a lot less power, and can have some of the same limitations.
So let’s consider the alternatives.
What we have: a laptop with an Intel Core i7 processor.
It has 256GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and a 10-hour battery.
That laptop costs $1,499 and ships in February 2018.
The Dell Latitude S430 is the best PC on the market, at a price of $1.8 million.
If you’re not convinced that this laptop is the absolute best option, consider the price.
The S430 costs $3,199, and the Dell Latitudes costs $2,999.
It’s about $10 more than the Dell.
So, what about the Dell laptops?
The Dell’s are not quite as great as the Latitudes.
They have a more powerful CPU, a bigger hard drive, and better graphics options.
But, again, those laptops are a little more expensive.
And even if you want to pick up the Latitude, you’ll still need to shell out $1 more.
How to get the Dell’s: you can buy them online for $1 million.
Or, you can go to Best Buy, Target, or Amazon and order them directly from the manufacturer.
You can get the Latitudinals for $4,799, and $5,799 for the Dell S430.
Dell also has a Dell laptop called the Latias, which offers the same specs, but costs $599 more.
But it’s not the same price.
Dell says that the Latios will arrive on February 15, 2018.
