Aiming to capture the hearts of trendy regional gamers this holiday season, Dell has unveiled the Inspiron XPS M170 – a new customisable gaming notebook that it claims will thrill performance-hungry gamers.

With Dell’s M170, users can customise the appearance of the system, as the notebook’s chassis features a range of options, which allows users to create a personalised look. The notebook’s LEDs offer sixteen different colour possibilities that can be changed by the user via its QuickSet interface.

If users wish to customise the notebook further, Dell has also included a clear snap-on lid for the back of the LCD display that allows users to display art, photography or a unique stamp.

According to Dell, the XPS M170 is the first notebook to use nVidia’s GeForce Go 7800 PCI Express x16 chipset that is supported by 256MB of GDDR3 memory. The M170 features a 17” wide-screen display and a 2.13GHz Pentium M processor.

Dell has also included its new ‘TrueLife’ technology that it claims enhances LCD display contrast and offers gamers an immersive gaming experience.

The two-toned black and silver M170 is currently available in stores across the region for approximately $2,742. The notebook competes with other desktop replacement notebooks such as LG’s $2,582 LW70 Express, which also boasts a 2.13GHz Pentium M processor and a 17” wide-screen LCD.
