Dell announced Dec. 11 that its XPS M1710 consumer notebook will now feature Blu-ray Disc technology, offering users more storage space and an array of DVD features.

Blu-ray Disc is an optical disc format that was developed by the BDA (Blu-ray Disc Association) to allow storage of large amounts of data and the recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video features.

Blu-ray technology supports up to 50GB of data and up to 4GB of 667 MHz DDR2 (double data rate 2) memory.

Marc Spier, senior manager of Peripherals Marketing at Dell, based in Round Rock, Texas, said, "Blu-ray Disc technology will give small and medium-sized businesses a storage tool that will allow them to back up and archive their data for 10 or more years while also enabling them to back up [an] entire hard drive onto a single medium. It gives them a capacity advantage in the corporate space."
