Geek Gift Ideas – Dec 13 (For The Horde!)

Dell XPS M1730 World of Warcraft EditionThe Dell XPS M1730 World of Warcraft Edition is the ultimate notebook for serious Warcraft players. With exclusives like next-gen SLI technology and the custom Warcraft case design, this M1730 has the power to play and the style to impress. Did you catch the post on the World of Warcraft Figure Prints yesterday? This complete package comes with a Golden Ticket for one… free of charge! But that’s not all it comes with; this package is absolutely loaded and targeted at the ultimate World of Warcraft geeks.

This baby has Dual NVIDIA SLI graphics AND an AGEIA PhysX Accelerator. What’s that all mean? No lag… period. This thing will handle any graphics intensive task that you can currently throw at it. In fact it is probably a bit overpowered for playing WoW, but you won’t hear me complaining. To handle all of that graphics processing power the machine comes with a staggering 17-inch widescreen UltraSharp WUXGA display with high resolution (1920×1200) and full HD 1080p support.

That’s just the beginning! Dell partnered with Logitech to be able to give you a built-in realtime game stats display. The keyboard is illuminated so you can see what you are doing at night.
