Yeah I've been trying to figure out when this notebook is gonna hit the market. I'm glad that I started this thread so I can see what everyone else is thinking and doing (thanks for the details whackamac) and hints (thanks Vanilla Jedi). I like NVidia's video solutions better right now, with pixel shader 3.0 support and the nice video processor on board that finally became useful, among other things. Interesting that another guy who called several weeks ago was told the new XPS was Pentium M. I've also read over at the inquirer that Dell intends to have its entire notebook line powered by Pentium M's by sometime next year, I think it was May. Intel is planning to make dual core Pentium M's sometime, but it's not on their roadmap for this year (according to the processor roadmap at Anandtech). I was also told that the XPS Gen2 would be available by Christmas, but I heard that back in September. I think that they would have released a P4 XPS Gen2 by now, so maybe they are holding out for the 915PM? According to Anandtech's roadmap, dual core pentium 4's are due Q3 next year. Long time to wait for a new XPS. Count me out for waiting.
