Dell set to release 2nd Gen Core laptops in six weeks

Sandy Bridge to come to Inspiron, XPS, Latitude, Alienware, Optiplex, Precision systems

Dell has just announced that it will be offering new 2nd Generation Core (formerly codenamed Sandy Bridge) laptops in six weeks. The technology will make use of the Series 6 chipset, and it will be featured in many of the company's most popular lines: Inspiron, XPS 15, XPS 17 and Alienware. Furthermore, Dell will introduce an ultra-slim laptop using the 2nd Generation Core chips.

Which Dell laptop is right for me?

In a press release, Sam Burd, vice-president of Dell's consumer and small/medium business product group said "Everyone from hard-core gamers to professional users and small-business owners can now choose Intel 6-equipped systems from Dell, delivering the ultimate performance they need to do more". He added "We are committed to the technology, and will be incorporating the architecture into additional products in the coming months, including our award-winning and popular Inspiron series and an innovative new form factor that will debut this spring."

Business users will also be getting 2nd Generation Core options in their products. We've already reviewed one such model, the Latitude E5520. The technology will also be featured in its Optiplex desktops and Precision workstations (both desktop and laptop options).

Details on the new systems will be announced next week, while the ultra-slim consumer notebook will be revealed in April.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
