Dell has just announced a pair of nice new laptops: The XPS2 and the inspiron 9300.
The Dell Inspiron 9300 is Dell’s first Media Center Edition laptop (if you upgrade the OS when ordering) and can be supplied with an optional external TV tuner, but mostly this is just a very high spec, lots of bang for the buck, desktop-replacement laptop.
The Dell Inspiron 9300 replaces the Inspiron 9200 (yes, logic is one of our strong points) which has itself only been out short while. It features lots of new technology including the Sonoma chipset (the replacement for Centrino), 533Mhz DDR2 RAM, (optional) 256MB GeForceFX 6800 Go PCI-Express video, and a whopping 17 inch LCD that comes in two resolutions, 1152×864 or 1600×1200.
Equally whopping is the weight: 7.85lb so you wont be carrying around everywhere, but if you are an occasioanl traveler looking for a laptop this would be a great choice.
The Dell Inspiron 9300 starts at $1,599 and should be available on the Dell Site in mid-march.
