    Looks interesting. Does anyone know anything about the Hybrid SLI graphics? Is it anything like ATI's hybrid CrossFire?

    Yeah this confirms what we saw from The Register article a few weeks back. They said XPS would become a sub brand. So these models fall perfectly in line with that news. Finally, something that makes sense.

    These Inspiron Studios seem to be the netbooks. Looks like we should see them in September.

    so montevina in august :)
    but i want a studio 16" now

    one thing i find weird: they say there studio xps 13" and 15" will be out november
    but it the later picture, it shows its going to be a 13" and 16" and not a 15"
    weird..

    its not like dell you make a silly mistake like that, as im pretty sure there wont be a 13",15" and 16"

    Well it'll be interesting to see how it turns out. For now though I'm glad I got the XPS M1530 while it was still around. :)

    FINALLY!

    November is really far away though and I will definitely need a new notebook before Christmas. Looks like they're ditching the matte finish on the current XPS laptops for a glossier look. And is it just me or did the Studio 16 have some kind of wooden finish near the hinge?

    they look and sound great, and i think i will buy the 16" studio xps.
    but they sound more expensive then the m1530/m1330.
    as they have a loads of stuff in them. things like illuminated keyboard, nice finsh, Hybrid SLI graphics(2 gpu's?), edge to edge full HD 16:9 screen etc.

    current XPS Notebook should die out in Q1 2009... we should also see a introduction in the netbook range.. Inspirons and Vostros (for emerging markets only) also the introduction of a studio desktop lineup in september (not the studio hybrid thats currently available) anyway lots of strategies being made by dell this year..

    Note: this is official news.. as seen in the ppt presentation.

    @Jayson: Do you know when Dell is going to make an official, public announcement about these new laptops? I'd like to know what kind of hardware they'll be carrying.

    Also, to those wondering about Hybrid SLI: It's not quite the same as regular SLI where you have two dedicated GPUs giving you a boost in performance. Hybrid SLI uses one dedicated GPU and an integrated GPU which will probably add a few frames per second while gaming. I believe you can also switch to the integrated GPU to conserve battery life.

    @ElectricTool: yes you right about hybrid SLI.. when gaming you ll use the dedicated gpu when on windows or word etc it will be switched off making battery life longer... about the official public release i cant say... but its still soon.. just giving you guys the heads up on the models..

    Well according to one of the attachments it showed the XPS 1530 is getting a montevina refresh and it said from august - acotober/september. If this is true, what gpu do you think they would stick in there.

    @link747: From November the Studio XPS 13, 15, 16 will be replacing the XPS 1330, 1530 and 1730. Note 16" 16:9 is the new trend to replace 17" 16:10. although available xps lineups will be equiped with montevina in september.
