XPS M1710 Gets Blu-ray

Today we announced that the XPS M1710 is available to order with a Blu-ray optical drive. It’s our first system that will ship with one of these drives.

All formats above are supported via software codecs and can be processed by the system and passed from the PC via the S/PDIF interface to an external amplifier/receiver. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the XPS M1710 notebook, this vlog is a good overview.
