Dell is announcing the XPS M1730 World of Warcraft Edition. However, this isn’t just any XPS M1730 series notebook with a WoW Edition badge slapped on. Dell, in collaboration with Blizzard, took a loaded XPS M1730 and gave it a serious makeover. Two different lid designs are available for Horde and Alliance players.

In addition to the redesigned chassis, the World of Warcraft Edition XPS M1730 also comes with a World of Warcraft backpack full of goodies including retail copies of both WoW and the Burning Crusade, the official WoW audio soundtrack, World of Warcraft and Burning Crusade paperback novels, strategy guides, and a behind the scenes DVD titled “The Making of WoW”.
If that isn’t enough WoW for you, customers will also receive a Quest Envelope in the mail which ships separately from the system. Inside you’ll find an upgrade certificate that allows you to upgrade your account to a “Collectors Edition Account” giving you the same privileges as owners of the Collectors Edition version of WoW, including the special in-game pet. The Quest Envelope also contains a Golden Ticket from FigurePrints that allows your in-game WoW character to be made into a custom figurine for free. That’s not all, the last item included in the Quest Envelope will surely make all of your guild members turn green with envy. You will receive an official Blizzard key card with five keys that can be used to gain access to beta tests for future WoW games!
All of this doesn’t come cheaply and the XPS M1730 World of Warcraft Edition will set you back $4,499. Of course, with all of this exclusive WoW content, it’s easy to forget that you also get a high-end gaming notebook packed with the latest hardware. Not familiar with the XPS M1730?
