To all WoW-aholics: Behold! The Dell XPS M1730 World of Warcraft Edition notebook computer!
OK, you can resume breathing now.
This 17-inch HD widescreen notebook becomes available on Tuesday December 11th on Dell.com/gaming. But if you're a WoW gamer and pre-registered for early access during the "It Begins" quest, then you can buy it today. Dell partnered with Blizzard Entertainment to create this notebook, which includes the following:
- World of Warcraft and World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade
- Quest envelope with access to exclusive items and opportunities
- Desktop background art and screensavers
It also comes with a WoW-themed backpack that includes:
- Warcraft Battle Chest (which has Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: Frozen Throne)
- Brady Games strategy guides for World of Warcraft, The Burning Crusade, Warcraft III and The Frozen Throne
- DVD with "The Making of WoW"
This serious WoW package starts at $4,499. As far as the specs go, Dell says the system includes NVIDIA SLI graphics power and 512 MB of dedicated video RAM with DirectX 10 realism. But if you want Dell's top-of-the-line gaming processors and hard drives, you'll have to pay for an upgrade.
Here's a video about the computer from Dell's vlog:
