Here's a short look at some things presented by Michael Dell during his keynote at CES 2006 in Las Vegas. He presented a 30-inch LCD display but also a couple of other things.

Dell previewed the Dell XPS mobile concept which is based on a radically new industrial design geared to the way customers live and work. Extending Dell's leadership in delivering a mobile entertainment experience in 14.1-inch, 15.4-inch and 17-inch widescreen notebooks, the XPS mobile concept sports a 20.1-inch display with high-definition TV. Other features such as integrated surround-sound audio and a slim slot-load DVD player mean no compromise for enthusiasts or users performing demanding multimedia tasks.

He also presented the new XPS 600 Renegade PC for extreme gaming :

With the limited-edition XPS 600 Renegade, Dell aims to extend its investment and category leadership in its line of high-performance desktop systems. The XPS system is expected to be the first to support two new NVIDIA GeForce 7800 SLI graphics cards, which can link four graphics processors to speed up overall video performance or draw images with intense realism. The system also features Dell's first overclocked and factory-set 4.26 GHz Intel(R) Extreme Edition dual-core processor. Overclocking is designed to increase the processor speed beyond mainstream usage to deliver over-the-top performance critical to extreme gamers. Dell's implementation of the processor is supported by the expertise of specially trained XPS technicians.

Each limited-edition XPS 600 Renegade will be custom painted by Mike Lavallee of Killer Paint, known worldwide for his detailed artwork on cars and motorcycles. Dell expects to provide pricing and ship the limited-edition XPS 600 Renegade in the U.S. in the spring of 2006.

Next was the Inspiron E1705 Dual-Core 17-inch Widescreen Entertainment Notebook :

In keeping with Dell's heritage of quickly delivering new technologies, the Inspiron E1705 notebook offers innovative features for multimedia on the go. With the computer's Intel Core Duo processors, mobile users can watch movies on the 17-inch display with optional TrueLife technology, and simultaneously run an antivirus program without compromising performance. A Dell TrueLife( display provides a vivid viewing experience for DVDs and photos with its bright, high-contrast screen.

The Inspiron E1705 also includes the high-end NVIDIA 256 MB GeForce Go 7800 graphics card for realistic gaming and multimedia. With the computer off, one press of the Dell MediaDirect button will allow users to play videos, music or photo slideshows stored on the hard drive, optical drive, a USB key or from the integrated 5-in-1 media card.

Prices start at $2,299.
