Dell’s Uber-Laptop May Be The Real Deal

Engadget got a tip that Dell plans to release its 18-pound, 20-inch widescreen laptop that it showed off as a concept PC at CES, possibly as early as next month. Called the XPS M2010, besides the mammoth screen and weight, and the carrying handle for when the case is closed, it would have a detachable full-size Bluetooth keyboard, 8 speakers, an Intel Core Duo processor, ATI’s Mobility Radeon X1800, support for 4 gig of SDRAM, ExpressCard, and a 1.3 megapixel videocam.

Damn, that’s some sweetness.

Of course, at 18 pounds and with a 18.5×15.0 inch footprint, you won’t just need a larger laptop bag, you’ll need to hit the gym. Seriously. If you want to avoid back problems, some serious weightlifting is the only way this’ll work.

Still, I want it so badly, it hurts. I won’t buy it until it comes with Windows Vista and a detachable SideShow device (you know, for when I don’t want to take the 18-pound laptop out of the bag) and it had better have a large-ass battery, but when it does, if it does, this is my laptop of the future.

Someone show me something better.

  2. No it doesn’t:

    http://www.apple.com/imac/whatsinside.html

    Size and weight (20-inch)
    Height: 18.6 inches (47.2 cm)
    Width: 19.4 inches (49.3 cm)
    Depth: 7.4 inches (18.9 cm)
    Weight: 22 pounds (10 kg)4

    The 17-inch iMac weighs less.

    And the iMac doesn’t include a mouse, keyboard and eight speakers in that weight. Let alone a battery.

    But, you still make a good point. The Dell has desktop weight. It isn’t for most people. But for someone who really wants it, its far more portable than an iMac, and just as (if not more) powerful.
