Dell XPS M1530

  • Excerpt: We wondered if Dell was making a passive-aggressive statement when it shipped us its new XPS M1530 in flamingo pink. Perhaps the boys in Austin think the MacBook Pro is a bit effete, so the pink is fitting. Or perhaps someone on the reviews team just finished watching Reservoir Dogs and was channeling Steve Buscemi’s Mr. Pink. Whatever the reason, the XPS M1530—be it pink, blue, or brown—is a worthy contender to Apple’s vaunted MacBook Pro.
  • Pros: Feature-packed and full of muscle; beautiful screen; built-in EVDO.
  • Cons: We don't really like the finish, aesthetically; some weird usability choices; some bloatware remains.

  • Excerpt: The Dell XPS M1530 picks up from the popular portable XPS M1330 notebook and carries on the tradition of a nicely designed and excellent performing notebook. The one main difference being that the M1530 is a 15.4″ screen notebook while the M1330 is a smaller 13.3″ screen notebook.

  • Summary: Dell takes the superb M1330 chassis and expands it to a 15.4in frame. Is this a stroke of genius or has it missed the mark?

Dell XPS M1530 review

expertreviews.co.uk
15 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Dell's XPS brand is associated with gaming laptops, but the M1530 excels in a wide variety of tasks. This model has been generously upgraded over the M1530 we reviewed in Shopper 243 but costs just £20 more. The chassis is in a class of its own. The brushed-aluminium palm rest, slot-loading DVD drive and touch-sensitive multimedia buttons exude style, and there's a choice of black, blue, pink or red lids.
