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.
  • 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.
