A history of Dell XPS laptops from 2007 to present
« am: April 14, 2019, 08:23:45 »
The Dell XPS series has been an excellent proposition for those desiring powerful computing on the go. The evolution of the XPS line is quite a journey, but all along it always underscored the need for keeping pace with the ever evolving technology landscape and computing needs of users, making the XPS lineup one of the most sought after Windows laptops. In this article, we will have a bird's eye view of how the XPS lineup evolved from the humble XPS 466V desktop in 1993 to the high-performant XPS 13 and XPS 15 ultrabooks of today.

Ha, a few years ago second hand Adamos were of pretty good value at a discount of over 80% off sticker price. The design was special and build was impeccable.

The first Dell XPS laptop wasn't in 2007 and didn't have a Core 2 Duo. The first XPS laptop (at least the first one I recall as it was my first laptop) was in 2006 had a Core Duo (the 32 bit dual core laptop processor) and a GeForce Go 7900GTX (later the 7950 GTX).

It was called the XPS M1710. I had the black one but you could also get it in red (which I believe is what Sheldon used to have on the Big Bang Theory). It also had LEDs on the lid and, IIRC, in the speaker grilles, which were completely customizable (and totally unnecessary but kinda cool at the time). It was an amazing laptop at the time and was the closest thing you could get to desktop graphics.

Get your facts right. My Dell XPS M1210 is still running fine from 2005. No idea how you came to the conclusion they started laptops in 2007.

Also still have XPS M1330 working; however, mainboard was changed three times: twice for infamous Nvigia 8th mobile series and once for failing power circuit. Also changed AC adapter a dozen times (those who invented this ever-breaking needle, should burn in hell).

missing most of the early laptop history, the first XPS laptop came out in 2004, based on the inspiron 9100 they called it the inspiron XPS, basically had to have the highest end Pentium 4 and has better gpu options then the 9100 (mobility radeon 9700 standard, 9800 upgrade in late 2004) and had better networking by default.  In all your missing around 7 models from the XPS line and don't even mention the studio XPS line which was the origin of today's XPS models.

Good old Wikipedia to the rescue: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dell_XPS#Gen_1

Hard to believe Dell put in a housefire-tier Pentium 4 Extreme Edition in the Gen1!
