The other model is in black and adds a 500GB and Blu-ray.

  1. Does this PC have the OEM specs to handle ATI’s USB capture device that uses CableCard?

    I’m having trouble discerning which computers out there are capable of working with CableCard. Apparently the Dell XPS 420 does this, but not even Dell’s website gives us any indication that this is a special OEM PC that can legally handle CableCards.

    I don’t want to buy some machine and find out that it doesn’t have the blessings to run CableCard. Can you guide me on this?

  2. Dana I don’t think this is cablecard ready as it’s designed for Japan and not the US. But maybe the US model is, i will try and find out
