Dell XPS M1730 Laptop

Dell Inspiron XPS Extreme
Gaming Notebook

The Gaming PC is spouting a new hybrid of computer - it
is not exactly portable in the sense of a traditional notebook
and it's not exactly a desktop computer or even a desktop
replacement. It's more of a 'moveable or mobile desktop'!

These machines are not meant to be portable (as in frequent
traveling) but simply a moveable desktop that can be transported
very quickly over short distances. Unlike traditional notebooks,
battery life and weight are not as important in the 'moveable desktop'
- what really counts is performance. Big Emphasis on performance.

These computers are maxed to the limit in regards to technical
performance - the faster the better. Graphics, visuals, and audio
are given center stage and tweaked to perfection. The entertainment
value rules the day.

Inspiron XPS Extreme is Dell's entry into the Gaming 'mobile
desktop' market. The emphasis is on graphics and power - supplied by
