The recently launched Intel Core i5 processors based on the Nehalem architecture will be making their way into new computers from Dell and Falcon Northwest. The Dell systems will be added to the Studio XPS line of desktops, with the 8000 and 9000 models. The systems start at $799 and are targeted at users who want power but don't want to spend too much. Falcon Northwest will begin selling all systems in its Talon line standard with the i5 processors. The systems will start above $1000, but a minimal system may be available for under $1000.
