Dell M1210 Sequel

Dell plans a radical overhaul of the XPS M1210 notebook for its jump to Intel's Santa Rosa architecture, an anonymous tipster claims. The 12-inch gaming portable will not only rely on the faster CPU but should use GeForce 8400M video and will be one of the first Dell notebooks to support unified shaders in DirectX 10 or OpenGL. Ergonomic changes will be even greater, the source boasts. The use of LED backlighting will improve color and help slim the overall case design substantially. Other changes will bring the weight down from 4.4 to 4.0 pounds and introduce a slot-load DVD rewriter in place of the tray loader used today.

The origin of the tip indicated that he had used the system, and suggests a relatively near-term release for the XPS notebook of June 26th. Prices are unknown but may be high relative to the M1210 on sale today. Updates to the M1710 and M2010 weren't part of the original report. [via Gizmodo]
