Dell Expands XPS Lineup with Entertainment Offerings

Dell introduced three new XPS high-performance systems featuring design excellence and customer-driven innovations to enable consumers to control and enjoy their digital entertainment around or outside the home.

At a news conference here, Dell unveiled its portable 20-inch widescreen entertainment PC, the XPS(TM) M2010, the redesigned XPS 700 gaming desktop, the XPS M1210 ultramobile notebook computer and the 2407WFP widescreen flat panel monitor. The offerings extend Dell's commitment to provide superior value and the richest entertainment experiences available by addressing emerging customer preferences.

More consumers than ever are using their home PCs to manage digital photos, edit digital videos, watch DVDs or play games. Dell's XPS products, when combined with Dell TVs, displays and projectors, make these experiences richer and more enjoyable.

"The PC continues to be the engine that drives the personal entertainment experience as more consumers see the value of expanding its use for gaming, photos, music and videos," said Alex Gruzen, senior vice president, Dell Product Group. "No one listens to customers better than Dell and today these XPS products exemplify product leadership for the digital lifestyle."

Dell's XPS line is intended to exceed the requirements of demanding consumers. The newest XPS models are designed for gamers, enthusiasts and customers preferring the best products and personalized service. By combining unique designs, industry-leading product features and superb service and support, the award-winning line of XPS systems continues to set the standard for home entertainment and gaming systems.

First introduced by Michael Dell as a mobile concept at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show, the XPS M2010 is a new breed of technology for portable entertainment or productivity. Sporting a unique design, the system's multimedia features include a 20.1-inch, high-definition widescreen monitor, eight speakers plus a subwoofer, a detachable, full-sized Bluetooth wireless keyboard and gyroscope-enabled remote, a webcam and a slot-load DVD drive. The articulating hinges supporting the display double as a system handle when the system is closed, making the XPS M2010 easy to carry and truly portable.

The Dell XPS 700 desktop represents Dell's latest in gaming design and performance. The new system supports NVIDIA Quad-SLI graphics, AGEIA PhysX physics accelerators and the latest Intel dual-core processors for an intensely realistic experience. The aluminum chassis, inspired by jet engine and muscle car designs, includes features such as customizable lighting to make it easy for gamers to connect devices or play in the dark. For the first time, do-it-yourself customers can purchase a kit including only the XPS 700 chassis, motherboard, memory and processor. They can install their own components and software for a truly personalized gaming experience.

The Dell XPS M1210 is the ultimate notebook for consumers desiring mobility and uncompromised performance. Starting at 4.37 pounds(1), it is light enough to go virtually anywhere, and its durable magnesium alloy frame makes it RoadReady(TM). Users can play games or enjoy multimedia content with powerful dual-core processors and optional discrete graphics in a 12.1-inch widescreen body. Customers can configure the XPS M1210 with a communications-friendly audio-visual package that includes an integrated webcam, Skype Internet communication software and video chat software, noise-isolation ear buds and optional embedded mobile broadband.

Building on the company's award-winning line of display products, the 2407WFP widescreen flat panel monitor is optimized for multimedia performance and enhanced usability such as gaming and video editing. The 24-inch monitor features some of the latest technologies and advanced features, including 6-millisecond response time(2), 1,000:1 contrast ratio, integrated 9-in-2 media card slots, four USB 2.0 ports and connectors for s-video, composite, component and DVI (digital video interface) with HDCP (high-bandwidth digital copy protection).
