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.

RE: Low End GPU

They had a low-end XPS 12" with integrated graphics so this is a big step-up. There are also plenty of laptops with X700 and 6600-class graphics, I'd imagine they will have 7600s and X1600s very shortly.

12" with discrete graphics is probably a first. Even if it is low-end who cares, it's still decent enough for such a small machine.


"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
