Decent computers are now a part of the photographer's kit in order to process captured images.  Fred just picked up the new Dell XPS 15" laptop and discusses the attributes of this machine and why you might consider it for your next computer purchase.  The new XPS features a 4GB Nvidia graphics card, so this machine will also be useful for video production.  If you have experience or comments on the Dell laptop, please leave you comments below, or better yet, on The Fotobug YouTube channel!
