Dell packs Wireless USB into Inspiron, XPS notebooks

updated 03:55 pm EST, Mon February 11, 2008

Dell Wireless USB

Dell today quietly slipped in one of the first widely available Wireless USB options into its portables. Both the Inspiron 1525 as well as the entire XPS gaming notebook line can now fit an internal adapter that supports the new standard. The technology uses ultra wideband to connect a system to a wireless USB hub or directly to the newest mix of external hard drives, printers, and other peripherals. The short-range technology is claimed to be as fast as wired USB 2.0.

Adding Wireless USB lifts the price of any given Dell system by about $150 versus its base price but does not affect the ship date. It also adds a Belkin four-port Wireless USB hub to the system bundle. Dell has not said if or when it will offer the Wireless USB option separately from the hub.

    Hmmmm,

    Funny how making a Dell more like a Mac, makes the price rise even more. ?????

    Could Apples actually be cheaper than a similar model???

    Will Apple ever make a low cost, bottom of the box model? (I think not. :-) )

    Just a thought.
