integrated subwoofer sound. Dell also introduces its "MAXPerformance" design, a new

Delivering some of the highest levels of performance available worldwide in a
portable computer, Dell today launched the Inspiron(tm) 9100 notebook aimed at
providing a mobile solution to demanding on-the-go enthusiasts who wish to
unwire from their desktop without sacrificing performance. Customers now can
choose a multimedia notebook computer that makes digital content creation, video
editing and gaming possible at desktop system-performance levels.

"Our customers tell us that they want a high-performance notebook capable of
handling intense applications and complex multimedia functions,
including graphics-demanding digital content manipulating capability," said
David Schmoock, director of marketing for Dell Asia/Pacific and Japan. "The
Inspiron 9100 is that system."

With prices starting at S$ 3,199(1), the Inspiron 9100 is powered by Intel’s
Pentium 4 3.0GHz processor(2) with Hyper-Threading capabilities to
improve the execution of large workloads, enable faster response times for
Internet and e-Business applications and enhance the customer experience. For
example, a customer can now convert a video clip from one format to another
while watching a DVD without interruption. Or, users can convert their CD
collection to a digital format while enjoying a CPU-intensive game without
sacrificing frame rate. Advanced graphics performance is powered by the ATI
MOBILITY(tm) RADEON(tm) 9700 graphics (64MB or optional 128MB) and an
eye-opening 15.4-inch wide-screen display. The Inspiron 9100 also features
integrated subwoofer sound.

A host of software is standard on the Inspiron 9100, including Microsoft XP
Home, Microsoft Work 7.0, and Dell Media Experience.

With the Inspiron 9100, Dell also introduces its "MAXPerformance" design, a new
notebook design providing a spacious, accommodating form factor that is
optimized for performance, enabling mobile users to custom-configure a notebook
with high-performance processing capability, large capacity, high-speed hard
drives, up to 128MB leading-edge video graphics and up to 2GB of 400MHz DDR dual
channel memory.

Personalization of the Inspiron 9100 is easy thanks to Dell’s QuickSnap(tm)
color kits, with five exclusive color options. Customers will have the
choice to "color up" with a Red Lava, Graphite Swirl, Bamboo, Burlwood or Venice
