| Laptops News | Posted: Oct 21, 2010 4:04 pm

For many years before Dell bought Voodoo, its gaming line of computers was the XPS series. After the purchase of Voodoo PC, Dell migrated the XPS line of notebooks and desktops towards machines that were more focused on media than pure gaming. Dell has unveiled a few new notebooks for the XPS family this week that include some thin and well equipped machines that are aimed directly at the thin and sexy HP Envy line of notebooks.
