Dell Enhances Viewing, Graphics Capability In Inspiron Notebooks

 Dell now delivers the ultimate in visual performance with its new Inspiron 700m. Dell's Inspiron 700m offers the company's first 12.1-inch Wide-Screen display on a notebook and includes the power and portability prized by consumers who want a unique viewing experience on the smallest chassis in the Inspiron family of notebooks.

Offered for the first time on a Dell notebook is the 700m's crystal clear LCD screen which has a smooth finish and provides rich and vibrant colors with sharp and crisp images. Users will find this screen's output resolution different from traditional LCD screens, similar to the difference between a glossy photo versus a matte finish. Coupled with the Wide-Screen format, the two-spindle 700m delivers impressive DVD viewing and allows for additional screen area to increase productivity. Included with each 700m notebook, customers will receive an LCD care kit to help safely clean, protect and preserve the screen from dust, dirt and fingerprints accumulated with everyday use.

Another never before seen feature on a Dell notebook is the 700m's Artic silver with Alpine white trim color scheme. Starting at $1,499 USD and 4.1lbs.1, the 700m makes the perfect travel companion and offers Intel's latest Dothan processors, the Intel Pentium M 725 (1.6 GHz) and 745 (1.8 GHz) without sacrificing optical capabilities. Choices of integrated opticals include DVD/CD-RW or DVD+RW2. The 700m includes internal wireless capabilities and memory can be configured from 256MB to 2GB.
