Blizzard announced at Blizzcon this year that they were working with Dell to bring out a new WoW themed computer. Starting on Tuesday, Dec. 11, gamers were able to purchase a premium edition of the Dell XPS M1730 that is emblazoned with custom World of Warcraft artwork and includes a variety of extras.

Customers who buy this special-edition laptop will receive a special "Quest Envelope" that contains access to items such as a "Golden Ticket" from FigurePrints, a company that creates custom figurines of players' individual World of Warcraft players.

Other unique features include original art by Blizzard artists on the back of the LCD display, World of Warcraft itself and The Burning Crusade expansion pack pre-loaded on the system, original desktop background artwork and screensavers and a World of Warcraft-themed backpack that includes a strategy guide and other expansion packs.

The XPS M1730 is one of Dell's premier gaming notebooks. It's a 17-inch HD system with dual Nvidia SLI graphics (that is, 2 graphics cards running in tandem) and a special AEGEIA PhsyX accelerator chip. The WoW-themed edition will retail for $4,500, about an $1,800 premium over the base M1730.
