Dell has unveiled the 9200 multimedia notebook, the first device in its Inspiron range to offer users a 17-inch wide-screen display. The Centrino-enabled 9200 is designed firmly with movies, games and presentations in mind. Its 17-inch WUXGA display offers users a 26% greater viewing area than Dell’s traditional 15.4-inch notebooks, with a default ‘WXGA’ resolution of 1440 x 900. Gamers will appreciate the built-in audio subwoofer and the notebook’s on-board graphics, based upon ATi’s Mobility Radeon 9700 chipset with 128MB of DDR video memory. Designers meanwhile may find favour with the notebook’s sleek artic silver and white design. “Not only is this the first ever 17-inch multimedia notebook for the Inspiron product range,” said Michael Collins, general manager, Dell Middle East, “but it incorporates powerful processing capabilities, advanced graphics, enhanced battery life, wireless access capability as well as an eye-catching design refresh.” The Inspiron 9200 supports 802.11a/b/g wireless networking and Bluetooth for use with Personal Area Networks (PANs). In addition to being Dell’s first wide-screen Inspiron, the 9200 is also the first such model to incorporate ‘+/-‘ (‘plus’ and ‘minus’ standard) optical drives with double-layer writing capabilities. According to Dell, the Inspiron 9200 will be available in the region in time for the Dubai Shopping Festival in January. The firm has yet to confirm final retail pricing.
