Dell quietly rolls out 1340 and 1640 laptops

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Anyone waiting, and waiting for Dell to get their act together on incorporating new technology into laptops can stop waiting. Dell has covertly added the Studio XPS 1340 and Studio XPS 1640 to their line-up. The leather accented cover is going to keep me from getting one, but if you’re into that sort of thing, go for it. Never before seen in Dell laptop options include Nvidia 9xxx graphics options and more.

These notebooks do not seem to be linked on Dell.com (or at least they buried it, in an attempt to sell last years technology.) Hopefully with them failing steadily behind HP in the PC laptop segment (due to HPs amazing price, performance, and style) they will continue to release new versions of their laptops in less than a year this time. I’ll however stick with my XPS 1530 for a little longer, and see what shakes out of Dell and HP in the coming months.
