Dell XPS M1710 Notebook Now Equipped With Blu-Ray Burner
Dell announced today the availability of a notebook featuring a dual-layer Blu-ray burner as an option. The XPS M1710 will offer all the standard features of Blu-ray drives—1080p video, up to 7.1 surround audio, backward compatibility with standard CD and DVD discs, etc.
"Blu-ray optical drive technology has gained broad industry support and we believe it will become the optical drive standard of the future," said Alex Gruzen, senior vice president, Dell Product Group, in a release. "We continue to see PCs—both desktops and notebooks—functioning as the entertainment and productivity hub in the home and on the road with their versatility, power, connectivity, and vibrant high-definition displays. We believe high-definition video powered by Blu-ray Disc technology will be a significant part of that entertainment experience."
The Blu-ray notebooks are also the first Blu-ray Disc system to meet the logo requirements for Nvidia PureVideo technology for providing the "ultimate" HD experience on a PC. Get ready an awful lot of money to grab the beast since the starting price for the computer equipped with Blu-ray burner is $3 699! Not cheap!
