There's already been a bit of news about this on other sites -- mostly the announcement of the secret project and some cool wallpapers -- but today Dell officially unleashed a beast of a gaming notebook tailored to World of Warcraft players.
The notebook is only available in 17" form and comes complete with a World of Warcraft backpack to carry it in. On the back of the LCD screen you'll find special Dell and World of Warcraft engraving, as well as a speaker marked with your choice of Honor badges -- either Alliance or Horde.
You'll also be able to track your stats with the world's first built-in Logitech GamePanel LCD to be found on a notebook, and ultimately have the opportunity to get a custom FigurePrint of your in-game World of Warcraft character with your actual armor and weapons.
It also comes with both World of Warcraft and The Burning Crusade pre-loaded and fully patched to the current World of Warcraft patch, so no installing or patching needed -- take it out of the box and go to town. On top of all that, there is also a Beta Club Key Card that will grant access to future WoW betas, Collector's Edition upgrades for both the original game and The Burning Crusade, and a whole slew of memorabilia.
System specs for the notebook are as follows:
- 17inch UltraSharp TrueLife Wide-screen WUXGA
- 512MB Dual NVIDIA® GeForce® 8700M GT with NVIDIA® SLI®
- Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T7500 (2.2GHz/800Mhz FSB, 4MB Cache)
