Dell has introduced an expanded consumer portfolio featuring next-generation 4G capable devices and high-definition 3D-capable laptops.

Unveiled at the 2011 CES in Las Vegas, the new devices mark the beginning of new generation of portable entertainment.

XPS Laptop with HD 3D: Unrivaled Dimensions in Entertainment
Dell is taking the XPS brand and mobile entertainment to new heights with a new 17-inch laptop featuring an eye-popping, adrenaline-producing, high-definition 3D display (3D viewing requires NVIDIA NVision 3D glasses, sold separately).

The new 3D capable XPS 17 joins Dell’s recently introduced line of XPS laptops featuring booming JBL sound, an integrated subwoofer and crystal clear high-definition screens and, of course, HD video streaming with Skype for the ultimate in HD camming.

A first for Dell laptops, the XPS system with 3D display comes equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics card to deliver another dimension to entertainment (3D viewing requires NVIDIA NVision 3D glasses, sold separately). Now you can experience the pulse-pounding energy of the front row, fast-paced action of the latest game, or the excitement of attending a live sporting event — all as if they were there in-person.

In addition to a 3D screen, the XPS 17 3D laptop also features NVIDIA 3DTV Play software, giving new meaning to the term “home entertainment.” Movie buffs and hard-core gamers can connect their XPS laptop to a compatible 3D HDTV and enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc playback or play popular PC games in stereoscopic 3D. And that’s not all: the new laptop also screams with next-generation Intel Core i7 processor options that are capable of up to 42 percent performance improvement for content creation over the previous generation.

In addition to new XPS laptops, Dell today enhanced its desktop line with a new Dell XPS 8300 desktop offering next-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 quad-core processors, delivering amazing speed and high-performance graphics options. The new desktop, which also features a cutting-edge, angled, tilt-back design, provides premium performance for the most-demanding multimedia and entertainment applications that families and students crave.
