Dell XPS M1530 laptop

AdvantagesGreat feature set, fast, GFX card, HDMI out

Disadvantageskeyboard/touchpad could be better

"...motherboard failure on my existing Dell Inspiron laptop and given its age, repair looked a bad move as one could buy a new laptop for less. However, once I decided to see what was available and given my two main criteria - a higher than usual resolution screen and three year warranty, I suddenly found the price spiraling upwards. After much searching I settled on an XPS M1530. The price on the Dell web site was around £1000 but a phone call to ..." Read review

Ding Dong Dell

AdvantagesCompact, lightweight, thin, looks great, fast, built in web cam

DisadvantagesA shame it doesn't have more than 2 USB ports

"...to have a contract with Dell at work, so I've been given several Dell laptops for my use. To be honest I liked the Fujitsu Siemens I had before much better than the last three Dells I was given, but I gave my last one back when I went on maternity leave. having gone back to work part-time now, I have been issued with a new one. And it's this: the Dell XPS M1330. As soon as it arrived on my desk it was obvious that it wasn't just another boring ..." Read review

Gaming experience again

AdvantagesGood graphics performance, Beautiful looking with colour option

Disadvantagesdisplay problen in bright and daylight condition

"...21st century experience. '''Hard Drive''' Here again Dell has put better capacity hard disk of 250GB 25400RPM SATA Hard Drive. And there are option of upgradation are available that is 320GB and the excellent quality 64GB solid state hard drive. Solid State drive is more reliable but due to latest technology it is expensive so that we can only get less storage capacity and have to pay more. So wait for some time to drop price and increase ..." Read review

Modern laptop with excellent features

AdvantagesFast, looks good; nice screen

DisadvantagesDim screen in power-saving mode

"...on the market - the Dell 1520/1525/1720 range are cheaper but don't look quite as good - though I'm sure they would have done a pretty good job too! The main attractions of the M1530: Fast processor - mine has the T5450 (1.66GHz) but better are available 2GB of RAM as standard 250GB storage - very handy but sure that won't seem like much in a couple of years! Very nice screen - high resolution Good graphics card (NVidia GeForce 8600M GT) Good ..." Read review

Dell XPS M1530

AdvantagesFast, user friendly, great memory

DisadvantagesBattery power runs low quick.

"Performance The Sheer performance of this machine is able to match anything i have been able to throw at it (including Crysis.) The memory and processing power alone put this laptop above the average performance of a desktop computer but the graphics package on top of that (especially with the 256mb version) puts this computer on another scale altogether when it comes to gaming, I have managed to run a comprehensive list of games on this beast ..."
