Dell readies another dual-core gaming notebook

Dell just recently launched its XPS M1710 gaming notebook which features a 17" screen, an NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS or 7900 GTX graphics chip and support for Intel's faster Core Duo processors. Dell is going one step further with the planned introduction of a gaming laptop with a much smaller form-factor.

The Dell XPS M1210, as its name implies, features a 12.1" widescreen (1280x800) display, a Core Duo processor and your choice of an NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 or ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 graphics chip. Other niceties include an integrated dual-layer DVD burner, Bluetooth 2.0, Intel 802.11a/b/g wireless, Expresscard54 slot and an optional integrated webcam.

Dell employees divulged the information, including pictures, on internet forums over the past weekend.  Whether or not the leak was sanctioned as part of a viral campaign or just corporate insiders showing off has yet to be determined. According to Notebook Review, the laptop is due to be released within the next few weeks.

Dell acquired Alienware earlier this year, but both companies continue to release competing products.

For me it isn't the screen size as much as the resolution that matters.

Amen to that. My 14" T40p has 1400x1050 res and it is beautiful. I much prefer it to the 15" panel of the same res. Likewise I honestly think I prefer 17" LCD's @ 1280x1024 as compared to 19" ones at the same res.

Perhaps when my eye sight begins to fail me I'll reconsider that statement, but "big" pixels just piss me off for some reason :)
