Exclamation Dell XPS 420 or Inspiron 530

Id like to know what you guys think is so good about the Dell XPS 420, because im thinking about buying it. I mean its got a Q6600 quad core with 3GBs PC6400. Whats the difference between the XPS and an Ispiron 530 with the same processor and same ammount of memory? Im asking because i like and want to buy the XPS, but I see the Inspiron on EBAY and everywhere else for less then $500, with the same chip and RAM, while the XPS ranges over $1000. Whats so special about Dells, HPs, etc.'s high end machines versus one of their mid-end machines if they have the same processors and RAM? Would they perform the same?

I think you get treated alittle more highly when you call/e-mail their support. Also i think better quality parts. ie, the cheaper models may have generic ram...
