Dell 500GB Notebooks
Both Dell and its gaming brand Alienware today quietly added a new drive option to their flagship portables. The 20-inch desktop replacement XPS M2010 from the parent company as well as the 17-inch Aurora m9700 now have the option of a 250GB, 5400 RPM notebook hard drive from Hitachi that offers a mixture between speed and capacity. In both cases the drives can be doubled for up to 500GB of storage, a feature previously unavailable in a portable.
Choosing the 250GB drive adds $250 or $300 to the base prices of the Dell and Alienware systems, respectively, and maintains the same projected ship date. [via NotebookReview]
