New Dell XPS- fastest notebook ever?


Dell_xps_notebook_1Dell has recently released the latest entry in the XPS notebook family and from the specifications this notebook is a real screamer.  Starting with the Intel Core Duo processor running at speeds up to 2.16 GHz with a 2 MB cache and a 667 MHz front side bus, the XPS is an amazing piece of hardware.  You’re not going to carry this beast around very much but if you max out the configuration options this may be the fastest gaming notebook ever produced.  Take a look at the specs of a maxed out XPS:

  • Intel Core Duo 2.16 GHz
  • Windows XP Media Edition 2005
  • 4 GB dual channel 667 MHz DDR2 memory
  • 17 inch Wide-Aspect UltraSharp screen (1920×1200)
  • NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX (512 MB)
  • High definition stereo sound with integrated subwoofer
  • 100 GB hard drive- 7200 rpm
  • 8X DVD+/-RW dual laser DVD+R

  • 6-USB 2.0 (Universal Serial Bus) compliant 4-pin connectors
  • RJ11 Modem port
  • Video: Digital Video Interface (DVI)

No word on battery life.  :)

Is “battery life” the correct term, or “coverage by the onboard Uninteruptable Power Supply” more appropriate? *grin*

I’d never buy one of those monsters, but they sure are pretty to look at.
