    I just took delivery of my new DELL XPS Gen 3 and it seems to be quiet, fast
    and I really like it a lot so far. One thing that is a little strange is
    that the case is silver and black and says Gen 4 on the front logo.

    I ordered it (unknowingly) one day before the Gen 4 machines appeared on the
    Dell website. Evidently I got one of the very last Gen 3 manufactured.
    Maybe they just ran out of Gen 3 cases and stuck all the parts in it.

    Looking on the website at the new XPS Gen 4 machines I can see very little
    difference between what is listed and what I took delivery on except the
    video card.

  3. Even stranger is the fact that you seem to have forgotten that
    you posted this same info five hours ago.

    Time to see your geriatric specialist; I'd start worrying about
    senility onset right about now. ;->

    A couple of Gen 3 systems (blue) have been delivered with Gen 4 covers
    (silver).
    It is a pure cosmetic change.
