Dell Unveils the Inspiron 8200 Notebooks With Advanced Mobile Technology

Dell today introduced two new notebook computers powered by Intel’s Mobile PentiumĀ® 4 processors-M, bringing desktop-like performance to consumers and business mobile users alike.

The wireless-ready InspironTM 8200 and LatitudeTM C840 notebooks come with Intel’s new Mobile Pentium 4 processors-M, NVIDIA’s new GeForce4 440 Go graphics controllers, large 15-inch high-resolution displays and multiple high-speed optical drives. The combination delivers performance levels in excess of many desktops found in homes and offices today.

“These notebooks deliver mobile Pentium 4 performance while shattering previous mobile graphics benchmarks,” said John Medica, vice president of Dell’s client product group. “Dell understands the mobile customer’s appreciation for compelling mobile technologies like advanced power management and wireless connectivity and these notebooks will not compromise a mobile user’s experience, avoiding such pitfalls as shorter battery life and diminished processor performance.”

The combination of the new processor and powerful mobile video technology provides up to twice the performance of other Inspiron and Latitude notebook computers. The improved performance is notable in the displaying of instant real-time previews during digital content creation and the running of graphics-intensive 2-D applications like Adobe Photoshop and QuarkXPress. The new products also meet the 3-D performance demands of today’s most robust games and engineering applications.

Other leading-edge technologies in the notebooks include:

An enhanced Ultra Extended Graphics Array (UXGA) display on the Inspiron 8200 that delivers 80 percent faster refresh rates, a 33 percent better contrast ratio and a 20 percent brighter screen than a standard UXGA display. This translates to smoother movement and more rich and more vibrant colors in DVDs, digital images and games.
Faster optical drives for higher reading and writing speeds. This means less time spent copying, transferring or backing up large data or digital image files.
Intel’s 845MP chipset. It has a faster processor bus speed (400MHz) and faster system memory (266MHz) for better performance on processor-intensive activities like database manipulation.

Inspiron notebooks are designed for the value conscious to those seeking cutting-edge performance. Prices and configurations for the new Inspiron 8200 begin at $1,6991. Examples of a base and high performance configuration include:
