XPS Dell Refurb
In reply to Jim Cockfield, Jul 14, 2012

I have never struck out on refurbs from Dell.

One thing I discovered is that the XPS mobo has one Sata III and three Sata II connections. Specs used to say two of each - but that was wrong.

To get a second Sata III, I ordered this PCIe 1x card from Apricorn.

I will not get full Sata III throughput, but it will be much better than Sata II. The price right now with rebate is $29, and I am ready for an SSD when the price is right. Works great.
