Dell upgrades its XPS M1710 multimedia notebook and adds a Blu-ray optical drive. Other features include an Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 (2.16GHz) or T7600G (2.33GHz) processor, 2GB of DDR2-667 memory, 100GB SATA hard drive, 512MB GeForce Go 7900 GTX graphics, and a vibrant TrueLife 17-inch widescreen UXGA display. Prices start $3699.
