Dell’s XPSTM M1730 gaming laptop

PC gaming leader Dell today unleashed the XPSTM M1730 notebook, aka “the beast,” for gamers who want to experience the peak of mobile gaming performance.

Available immediately, the XPS M1730 is the world’s first notebook to incorporate AGEIA PhysX Mobile TechnologyTM and Logitech’s GamePanel LCD. The PhysXTM processor helps deliver realistic movement and environmental interaction at incredible speeds without degrading overall performance. The GamePanel LCD allows gamers to view game stats, create new macros and track important system information without leaving the game.

The high-octane XPS M1730 delivers incredible mobile gaming performance, supporting the overclocking* of Intel® CoreTM 2 Extreme processor X7900 to Bin +2 (up to 3.2GHz) and featuring NVIDIA® SLI technology with support for DirectX® 10 graphics. It is the only notebook to feature the AGEIA PhysX 100MTM processor, and for a limited time every system includes Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 from Ubisoft.

Designed specifically for the gaming community and dubbed “the beast” by the Dell development team, the new notebook features an aggressive, brawny design that can be personalized with four color accent choices: Crimson Red, Sapphire Blue, Bone White, and Smoke Grey.

Looking ahead, Dell engineered the XPS M1730 chassis to handle the thermal and power requirements of the most powerful next-generation graphics technology. Dell also will offer a graphics upgrade program when next-generation graphics processor technology is available.

Other features include a backlit keyboard with separate 10-key number pad, a high-definition display with a lightning fast response time of 7 milliseconds* and support for Dell’s LightFX application, allowing users and developers to manipulate the system’s multi-colored perimeter lighting LEDs.

For fans of online gaming, the XPS M1730 is Dell’s most “connected” gaming notebook available. It features optional built-in mobile broadband connectivity* with a choice of carriers, including AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Wireless, as well as Wi-Fi technology choices topped out by optional Wireless-N. Systems also include a built-in Web camera and digital array microphone for gamers to clearly see and flame the competition.

Developing PCs for Next-Generation Games

Gamers can see the power of the XPS M1730 at a Dell event today at DigitalLife, the popular consumer electronics and digital technology event in New York. Gabe Newell, co-founder and managing director of Valve Corp., is scheduled to make a guest appearance and demo some content from The Orange Box, the widely anticipated PC game compilation.
