Dell announces new Inspiron 700m/XPS series

Dell's Inspiron 700m offers the company's first 12.1-inch Wide-Screen display on a notebook and includes the power and portability prized by consumers who want a unique viewing experience on the smallest chassis in the Inspiron family of notebooks.

Offered for the first time on a Dell notebook is the 700m's crystal clear LCD screen which has a smooth finish and provides rich and vibrant colors with sharp and crisp images. Users will find this screen's output resolution different from traditional LCD screens, similar to the difference between a glossy photo versus a matte finish. Coupled with the Wide-Screen format, the two-spindle 700m delivers impressive DVD viewing and allows for additional screen area to increase productivity. Included with each 700m notebook, customers will receive an LCD care kit to help safely clean, protect and preserve the screen from dust, dirt and fingerprints accumulated with everyday use.

Another never before seen feature on a Dell notebook is the 700m's Artic silver with Alpine white trim color scheme. Starting at $1,499 and 4.1 lbs.(a), the 700m makes the perfect travel companion and offers Intel's latest Dothan processors, the Intel Pentium(R) M 725 (1.6 GHz) and 745 (1.8 GHz) without sacrificing optical capabilities. Choices of integrated opticals include DVD/CD-RW or DVD+RW(b). The 700m includes internal wireless capabilities and memory can be configured from 256MB to 2GB.

Inspiron XPS

First launched in February, Dell's new XPS notebooks will now include the ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9800 graphics card with 256MB of memory, providing customers with exceptional frame rates ready to handle the latest 3D games. The ATI card is being sold exclusively on Dell Inspiron notebooks for 30 days.

Another first time offering on a Dell notebook is the XPS graphics card installation service for enthusiasts who previously purchased XPS notebooks that were configured with the ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9700 graphics card. Starting at $399, customers who purchase the service will be able to schedule and depend on a Dell-certified technician to install the ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9800 video card at their convenience. The card enables XPS users to power through the most graphic-intense games with the strongest 3D performance in a Dell Inspiron notebook, ready to travel to the next LAN party or gaming tournament.
