Anybody considering a MacBook Pro should consider taking a look at the XPS 1640 that Dell quietly released yesterday. In a rather non Apple fashion they decided to be low key about it. It is available with the same 1920 x 1200 resolution as the new Macbook Pro 17 and takes the display quality a step further with not only just a 60% color gamut but a 100% color gamut. This is possible because instead of just a LED backlight, the Dell can be configured to use an even more advanced technology called RGB LED, the first I've heard of on a laptop. The kicker is it starts at $1199 dollars versus the $2799 of the Macbook Pro 17. Definitely worth a look at least. Google search is your friend here, but this is what it looks like (these are pics of the smaller 1340 model as I can't find high quality pics of the 1640 - but like the Macbook versus the Pro it's like a smaller version of the 1640). If we can keep the WINDOWS SUCKS!!!111!! and OSX RULES!!11 comments to a minimum, this notebook could be some decent competition.
