Washington, D.C. (December 11, 2006) -- Dell today introduced a notebook computer that can play Blu-ray HDTV DVDs in 1080p.

The laptop, which is priced at $3,700, joins similar notebook/HDTV DVD playing devices from Sony (Blu-ray) and Toshiba (HD-DVD).

The companies are hoping that laptop owners will use their machines for entertainment as well as work.

The Dell XPSTM M1710 notebook computer supports read/write capabilities including CD, DVD and Blu-ray. Users can burn up to 50GB of data or Blu-ray video on a single disc as well as watch pre-recorded Blu-ray movies.

“Blu-ray optical drive technology has gained broad industry support and we believe it will become the optical drive standard of the future,” said Alex Gruzen, senior vice president of the Dell Product Group. “We continue to see PCs – both desktops and notebooks – functioning as the entertainment and productivity hub in the home and on the road."

Dell has been a supporter of the Sony-backed Blu-ray format since it launched last year while Microsoft has endorsed Toshiba's HD-DVD.
