Core 2 Duo hits Dell, Alienware notebooks
Unlike some of its competitors, Dell seems to
be an enthusiastic early adopter of Intel's latest mobile screamers.
Core 2 Duo processors are now available
in Dell's XPS M2010, XPS M1710, XPS M1210, and
Inspiron E1705 notebooks, as well as the company's business-oriented
Inspiron 9400, Precision M90, and Precision M65 machines. Those
notebooks all feature Core 2 Duo processors with speeds of up to either
2.16GHz or 2.33GHz depending on the model. Alienware, which was acquired
by Dell earlier this year, is
also sporting Core
2 Duos galore
in its Area-51 m5750, Area-51 m5550, and Sentia m3450
machines. In contrast, a look through HP's, Toshiba's, and Acer's
websites revealed no notebooks with Core 2 Duos that we could see.
