Dell Studio XPS Arctic Wht
Dell today quietly added a third color option to its Studio XPS 13 and Studio XPS 16 notebooks. The Arctic White shell complements the existing black and red options and adds a color-matching leather accent at the base of the lid to improve both the aesthetics and grip of the system. As always, the palmrest and the rest of the inside notebook remain the same two-tone black and silver.
Adding white boosts the price of the system by $40 but leaves all the remaining system options. Either Studio XPS notebook starts off at $999 with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo, 3GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and either an integrated GeForce 9400M (for the 13-inch system) or a discrete Mobility Radeon HD 3670 (for 16-inch models). Models ordered in white still ship in the same timeframe as with other colors.
