Dell M1710 With Blu-Ray

Dell this morning announced that its XPS M1710 notebook is the company's first system to ship with a Blu-Ray drive. An option now exists to fit the 17-inch desktop replacement with a drive that can read and write the next-generation format, including 50GB dual-layer discs. Backwards compatibility exists for playing and recording both CDs and DVDs. The computer is also the first to earn NVIDIA's PureVideo logo, Dell says; its stock GeForce Go 7950 GTX can fully accelerate Blu-Ray video at its native 1080p, offloading the work that would normally be handled by the M1710's 2.33GHz Core 2 Duo. A system configured with Blu-Ray begins at $3,699 and is available today with 1GB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive.
