The Dell weekend continues!

We started the Dell Weekend here with coverage of the discussions of the new BluRay-powered Dell Inspiron laptops via the various high tech gadget blogs. Then we spotlighted a series of XPS specials, aka the XPS Fan Club :)

We continue today with two more specials, first up the lovely XPS M1730 laptop for only $2149 after $606 of instant savings. The M1730 as the name suggests features a 17" widescreen display! As with all things Dell, you can have it your way!

Next up we have the XPS M1530 laptop for only $1399 after instant savings of $619. As tne model name hints, the M1530 bares its soul to the world via a 15.4" widescreen display :) You can also customize it, given the available options.
