    Translate from Google sorry :

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    New informations from Dell, the graphics card for the SXPS 15 and SXPS 17 will be from nVidia only. No more information on the model of the nVidia cards.

    The photo below is not exactly the design of new SXPS but it look a lot like for the final version (Design from new Inspiron Mini 10)

    Seems unlikely that Dell would find a GPU with 3GB to put in the laptop... unless its SLI or Crossfire, which also seems unlikely since they have Alienware.

    I think that Dell can choose to put the performance of the Alienware M15x in the Studio XPS for those who do not like the Alienware design (many people do not like the design).

    This is only a theory

    The XPS 15 looks hideous. I miss the leather!
    I am curious about the videocard they will fit inside though.

    I have a huge doubt this is coming to reality unless they want their XPS line to eat up their business/AW line.

    If your current laptop had 128GB of RAM, you would probably see no benefit.

    And for the GPU, there are plenty of (now) budget desktop cards with only 256MB that score 4x more points on synthetic benchmarks than the 5730.

    To sum up:

    This is the maximum configuration for Studio XPS 17 :
    Processor: Intel Core I7 obvious/expected
    RAM: 16 GB 4 slots is not uncommon, see the XPS 16's competitors
    HDD: 1.2 TB 600GB + 600GB, nothing new
    Graphics: 3GB of memory dedicated seems interesting, but tells nothing about performance
    JBL Speakers "good" speakers are a must
    HDMI 1.4 it better have HDMI
    USB 3.0 took 'em long enough
    Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ... more standard suff

    This leaves big questions- what type of screen? Will the XPS 15 throttle/overheat?

    Wonder if a Dec/Jan release would mean Sandy Bridge CPU's and ATI 6xxx GPU's. If not I would say that buying this would be terrible timing given the impending tech.

    Rumour rumour rumour.
    3GB of dedicated graphics? Come on! There's no way Dell would throw something like this out when it already owns Alienware!
    Almost had me excited there. Almost.

    Hmmm ... I dont know what to make of this news/rumour having just purchased a Dell XPS 1645 myself.

    Thankfully with the 3 yr warranty as Gloomy has mentioned, I am alright.

    But I tend to shy away from the latest releases of anything until the technology has settled or proven itself ... and people have commented.

    So nothing to jump up and down about just yet.
