It looks like Dell is going to launch a 12″ gaming laptop outfitted with a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 or an ATI X1300. There will be an optional integrated camera and best of all it’s a small package.
This could be a significant product for Dell as it will be their first 12″ laptop with graphics better than an Intel GMA900/950. While a Go 7300 or X1300 won’t exactly blow away frame rates like a Go 7900 GTX, it will be good enough to play current games at lower resolutions with some details enabled.
If this laptop does indeed hit the market, it will be interesting to see how the competition will respond.
“The XPS M1210 rocks a 12.1-inch widescreen display, Core Duo processor, NVIDIA 7300 or ATI X1300 graphics, dual later DVD burner, Bluetooth 2.0, 802.11a/b/g, 5-in-1 media reader, ExpressCard54 slot, up to 4GB RAM, and an optional webcam. Should be out some time in May, but we’ll know for sure when we get the official word from the gang at Dell.” The rest here.
