Rumored Dell Widescreen 14.1″ Notebook Coming by Year End

According to a report by Taiwanese computer manufacturer Wistron will begin manufacturing a 14.1-inch widescreen notebook to compete with the newly released HP dv1000 and Compaq Presario v2000 notebooks recently released by Hewlett Packard.  This notebook will likely not be released until near year-end though, possibly the holiday season.  Wistron is rumored to have been asked to ship 30,000 – 40,000 of the new Inspiron per month.

Wistron currently makes the Inspiron 700m for Dell that was released in July.

Microsoft XBox 2 Peripherals to work With Desktops and Laptops?

According to a recent interview with Dean Lester, the Microsoft Windows Gaming General Manager, Microsoft plans to make all perpherals for the XBox 2 compatible with todays windows machines.  This can be interpreted to mean that the XBox 2 will likely use USB 2.0 as the port for add-ons such as controllers.  This would be a good move on Microsoft’s part and a boon to consumers as we could then buy a controller or steering wheel and use it for games on both our video game system and PC.  Wow, what a concept, not having so many controllers in the house you could rope their cords together and stretch them to the moon.
