    Dell's mobile machine packs a 1.6 GHz Core i5-2467M or a 1.7 GHz Core i7-2637M processor, 4 GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 3000, a 128 GB or 256 GB solid state drive, two 1.5 W speakers, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, a mini DisplayPort output, and two USB ports (one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0).

    I have been waiting for the AMD Llano or Trinity version of it. I like ultrabooks, but good graphics performance is necessary.

    I thought XPS branding is for gamers, I pretty much surprised when I read 'XPS' and 'Ultrabook' in a sentence and thought they would somehow crammed a dedicated GPU for gaming. Looks like it isn't

    XPS is for nice looks stylish, they bought Alienware for gaming.
