Dell XPS M1530

24 June 2008
  • 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.
