Dell is showing off a couple of new products at CES, including a 16" notebook with a real 16:9 display and the new XPS 630i:
16-inch Display = True 16:9 Aspect Ratio
Movie buffs and videophiles are urged to check out a concept XPS laptop with a 16-inch 16:9 aspect display with full HD 1080p resolution. While most laptop available today feature a widescreen display, the true entertainment enthusiast knows that typical 14.1-, 15.4- and 17-inch notebook displays feature a 16:10 ratio versus the 16:9 aspect ratio used in most HDTVs. The most accurate representation of video content for select Blu-ray movies and digital TV is seen with a 16:9 display. When the source video is 16:9, the movie images will fill the entire 16-inch display with no letterboxing.

XPS 630i : Middleweight Contender With Heavyweight Power

While the XPS 630i is more compact than the powerhouse XPS 720 family, it won’t compromise on performance. The XPS 630i can be seen in a variety of locations around CES, including Sony and Creative Labs as well as the Dell Lounge. More about Dell’s gaming products is available at
