mobilenvidia Posted September 2, 2007 Report Share Posted September 2, 2007 Found this over at Engadget a very much antecipated machine gets delayed. Nice specs but VERY heavy to lug around, but who cares when you get to where you're going, you know your going to kicj some serious arse. The SLI'd 8700M's are slower then the go79x0 versions in probably everything but DX10, I'd say the 8x00 should pull away from the 7x00 with this. I personally like the looks of it, the numeric keypad will be a welcome addition. The SLI is apparently a dual 8700M GPU card not 2 x 8700Ms on seperate cards. We can't ever guarantee launch dates on an unannounced product, but it looks like Dell's internal shipment date for the new XPS M1730 just slipped, and has been pushed back to September 21st for the US, Europe, and Asia. Here's the latest specs list (sorry, not much there has changed since before): * Intel Core 2 Duo up to 2.6GHz (X7800, 4MB cache) * Up to 4GB DDR2 667 RAM, Intel PM965 chipset * 17-inch WUXGA TrueLife (1920x1200) * Single or SLI 256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 8700M GT * Regular and SSD drive options * Blu-ray drive * (6) USB 2.0, 1394, DVI out, S-Video, gigabit Ethernet, IR * 54mm ExpressCard (with travel remote) * 802.11a/b/g/n, 3G WWAN, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR * 10.6 pound starting weight, 2-inch thick chassis Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
