Dell XPS 17 and Alienware M17x get Sandy Bridge

Posted on Friday, January 07 2011 @ 18:03:30 CET by

Dell introduced the new XPS 17 and Alienware M17x laptops.
Dell is taking the XPS brand and mobile entertainment to new heights with a new 17-inch laptop featuring an eye-popping, adrenaline-producing, high-definition 3D display (3D viewing requires NVIDIA NVision 3D glasses, sold separately). The new 3D capable XPS 17 joins Dell’s recently introduced line of XPS laptops featuring booming JBL sound, an integrated subwoofer and crystal clear high-definition screens and, of course, HD video streaming with Skype for the ultimate in HD camming.

A first for Dell laptops, the XPS system with 3D display comes equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics card to deliver another dimension to entertainment (3D viewing requires NVIDIA NVision 3D glasses, sold separately). Now you can experience the pulse-pounding energy of the front row, fast-paced action of the latest game, or the excitement of attending a live sporting event – all as if they were there in-person.

In addition to a 3D screen, the XPS 17 3D laptop also features NVIDIA 3DTV Play software, giving new meaning to the term “home entertainment.” Movie buffs and hard-core gamers can connect their XPS laptop to a compatible 3D HDTV and enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc playback or play popular PC games in stereoscopic 3D (3D HDTV requires 3D glasses and a NVIDIA compliant 3D TV. For a list of compatible 3D TVs, visit http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-tv-play.html. Blu-ray Disc player and 3D content, sold separately). And that’s not all: the new laptop also screams with next-generation Intel Core i7 processor options that are capable of up to 42 percent performance improvement for content creation over the previous generation.

Extreme Gaming that Pushes the Limits
Alienware, Dell’s premium high-performance PC gaming brand, is continuing its universal domination with sizzling new additions that take extreme gaming to new heights and ratchet up the hottest gaming system lineup in the industry.

“Serious PC gamers and enthusiasts who want an immersive, 3D and high-definition sound experience have found their universe,” said Sam Burd, Vice President of Dell’s Consumer, Small, and Medium Business group.

The new M17x is Alienware’s first 3D-capable gaming laptop, offering a realistic, lifelike, mobile gaming experience in a 17-inch display (3D capability requires optional 120Hz w/3D Bundle WideFHD WLED LCD display and NVIDIA graphics card). With its available full HD 120Hz 3D display, the new M17x offers eye-popping stereoscopic viewing for today’s most realistic gaming and mind-blowing 3D Blu-ray movie experiences.

Alienware also introduced new models of its Aurora system, Alienware’s first MicroATX desktop with full 3D HD capability and liquid-cooled CPUs (3D-capability requires an optional 120Hz 3D capable LCD display, NVIDIA 3D Vision Kit and a NVIDIA graphics card. For a list of compatible displays visit http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-requirements.html). Both 3D-capable, designed-for-gaming systems feature new, second-generation Intel quad-core processors with Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 and hyper-threading technology that deliver Intel’s top-of-the-line performance that is faster than the previous generation CPUs. Powerful graphics options, scalable memory and storage options and Alienware’s striking, out-of-this-world design features will leave sweaty-palmed gamers thirsting for more action.
