Dell has a new notebook from their XPS line of high performance computers which is catching a lot of attention for its unique, cool design and powerful set of features. Get ready for the Dell XPS M2010.
The Dell XPS M2010’s design makes it initially look like a stylish briefcase with its “charcoal-colored outer shell, leather-like back and gloss accents”. The briefcase, when opened up via the anodized, articulating hinges, reveals a beautiful 20.1-inch widescreen SXGA+ display with 1680 x 1050 resolution. Attached at the bottom of this display is the actual CPU, housed in an attractive, relatively thin rectangle shaped case with integrated slot-loading DVD burner, as well as eight built-in speakers and a subwoofer.
Also attached to the XPS M2010 are a 1.3-megapixel camera and array microphone for video conferencing and a detachable, full-sized Bluetooth wireless keyboard with integrated touchpad and a 10-key number pad. Running along the front side of the XPS M2010 are control buttons which give quick access to music and movie playback. This wide array of exterior features are joined by an integrated 13-in-2 media card reader, four USB 2.0 ports, an ExpressCard slot and a variety of audio/video ports such as 7.1/5.1 audio, DVI, S-video and component video.

Under the hood of the XPS M2010, Dell has packed this desktop/notebook hybrid with plenty of firepower to make the most demanding multimedia hounds happy. Processing power is provided courtesy of an Intel Core Duo Processor, with graphics processing being handled by a 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon X1800 graphics card. Running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, the XPS M2010 is built to scream with up to 4GB of dual channel DDR2 memory.
Joining this array of impressive, interior hardware features are further enhancements like up to 240GB of storage across two hard drives with optional RAID 0-1 configuration as well as 802.11a/g and Bluetooth wireless technologies. Also of note is a wireless Bluetooth mouse and optional external USB TV tuner.

And did we mention the remote which comes with the XPS M2010? The Dell Premium Remote Control offers full navigation control of the Windows XP Media Center Edition interface up to 30 feet away. The remote includes a built-in micro gyroscope, meaning on-screen mouse control can be done by simply moving the remote control in the air.
