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.
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.
Summary: Don't let the slim design and relatively light heft fool you. This XPS is one powerful gaming portable with an impressive feature set for work and play.
Pros: Excellent gaming performance, Touch-sensitive buttons, Slim and light for a midsize machine, Good feature set which includes a fingerprint sensor, Mini-remote control stored in the ExpressCard slot
