Since the launching of the gaming laptop, XPS, from DELL, gamers have an option to buy a gaming laptop rather than the plain laptop with specs that can play games. Eventhough in Malaysia, there is not much demand yet, words are spreading around about the 'new kid' from DELL. This time, that particular 'kid' have received a total makeover. This is where Blizzard comes in.

The model selected for the makeover is none other than the XPS M1730. Rest assured that the specs is really that good, it can even be sold for twice its price (exaggerate). Some of the specs that are worthy to mention is the over-clockable[ii] Intel®Extreme Edition Core™ 2 Duo processor (up to 3.4GHz), NVIDIA SLI graphics power and 512MB of dedicated video RAM with DirectX® 10, AGEIA PhysX mobile processor and built-in Logitech® GamePanel LCD, full HD 17-inch widescreen, Blu-ray Disc™ (DELL loves Sony), built-in camera and digital array microphones, Mobile Broadband,[iv] Wireless-N, Bluetooth, and Dell's exclusive Wi-Fi Catcher™, dual headphone jacks, noise-isolating ear buds and last but not least, a portable ExpressCard media remote for you to swipe your credit card and pay your gaming bills (this one I'm not 100% sure). With all the specs, it is more than enough for you to play all those latest graphic-hungry games.

" The standard XPS M1730 "

So, what is exactly the makeover that was done to this 'kid' ? With the likes of Blizzard, I'm sure games like Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, and not forgetting World of Warcraft will pop up in your mind (Hint: MMORPG). Take a look below for the answer.

" I bet 70% of you have this in your mind first, World of Warcraft "

" The inside look "

Besides the specs, Blizzard is generous enough to include goodies together with the laptop. With around 9 million customers world-wide, I don't think they need any more reason to be kind. Some of the goodies are World of Warcraft and World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade™ pre-loaded on system with the latest patches and updates, A World of Warcraft-themed backpack that includes the retail box copies of World of Warcraft, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, and the Warcraft® Battle Chest , which includes with Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos™ and Warcraft III: Frozen Throne™.

" Box Concept for the laptop "

Thats not all, Blizzard also throw in together with the laptop a special Quest Envelope that ships separately with exclusive rare items for example, a Golden Ticket that allows the customers to receive a special custom FigurePrint based on the actual World of Warcraft character that they play and an Account Upgrade Certificate enabling the upgrade of a World of Warcraft account1 to receive the Collector's Edition pets from both the original World of Warcraft Collector's Edition and the World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Collector's Edition. Sounds nice huh ? With a mere tag of USD 4,499, this is really a good deal especially for gamers who wants to get started on WOW (or those who want a new laptop for Christmas).

    Dude, USD 4,499 is equal to around RM 15,000. Do you think it is really a good deal? I beg to differ :P

    For the US, it is really a good deal. I hope for the Malaysia market, they will lower the price and not the actual conversion rate.

    To be a good human being is to from a philanthropic of openness to the far-out, an gift to trusteeship undeterminable things beyond your own pilot, that can govern you to be shattered in uncommonly outermost circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something remarkably important thither the condition of the honest life: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a jewel, something kind of fragile, but whose very particular beauty is inseparable from that fragility.

    Advice in old age is foolish; for what can be more absurd than to increase our provisions for the road the nearer we approach to our journey's end.
