Dell's Fastest Laptop into China

On June 2nd, 2006, Dell released their flag-ship product: Dell XPS series to China. This indicates Dell is aware of the Chinese gaming industry. The models Dell is releasing to China include Inspiron XPS M1710 and M1210. The M1710 is the fastest laptop from Dell at the moment:

* System: Dell XPS M1710 (Red color lid)
* Processor: Intel Core Duo T2600 (2.16 GHz)
* Memory: 2GB @ 667MHz - 2 DIMM Slots (2 x 1GB) (Max Ram 4GB)

* Price of this configuration: $4,215 (base price of black metallic M1710 starts at $2,600)

It is an ideal laptop for the serious gamers and one of the fastest laptop computer out there in the market today. The current Chinese gaming industry has 26.34 million players, over half of them are paid customers. The Chinese gaming industry generated 3.77 billion yuan (500 million CAD $) in the year 2005. I foresee the Dell XPS series will have a good market in China.
