Dell set to release 2nd Gen Core laptops in six weeks

Sandy Bridge to come to Inspiron, XPS, Latitude, Alienware, Optiplex, Precision systems

Dell has just announced that it will be offering new 2nd Generation Core (formerly codenamed Sandy Bridge) laptops in six weeks. The technology will make use of the Series 6 chipset, and it will be featured in many of the company's most popular lines: Inspiron, XPS 15, XPS 17 and Alienware. Furthermore, Dell will introduce an ultra-slim laptop using the 2nd Generation Core chips.

Which Dell laptop is right for me?

In a press release, Sam Burd, vice-president of Dell's consumer and small/medium business product group said "Everyone from hard-core gamers to professional users and small-business owners can now choose Intel 6-equipped systems from Dell, delivering the ultimate performance they need to do more". He added "We are committed to the technology, and will be incorporating the architecture into additional products in the coming months, including our award-winning and popular Inspiron series and an innovative new form factor that will debut this spring."

Business users will also be getting 2nd Generation Core options in their products. We've already reviewed one such model, the Latitude E5520. The technology will also be featured in its Optiplex desktops and Precision workstations (both desktop and laptop options).

Details on the new systems will be announced next week, while the ultra-slim consumer notebook will be revealed in April.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
