    I realize this may be an odd question to ask here, but I can't seem to get any answer out of Dell themselves, so thought that maybe real-world users might be able to shed some light.

    I am considering a Dell XPS 8700 Special Edition with a 256GB SSD but cannot get any info on who is likely to have made it/what brand it will be. I need to decide if I should get it included, or opt for a cheaper version and get my own SSD from a 3rd party sine there are some big differences in performance and specs etc. I'd rather not have to go an re-install my OS mind you, but would like to be sure that Dell is using a good top of the line SSD.

    Anyone out here using this machine and can tell me?

    Many thanks.

    We order a lot of Dell laptops not XPS in particular but i have mostly seen Samsung and a few Intel SSDs in the 80 laptops we have ordered so far for our users.
