The Dell XPS M1530, a Short Review The Dell XPS M1530 laptop represents the high end range of laptop computers that are sold by Dell. This range of laptop cater to those users who need a high performance laptop PC that can run graphics programming applications, play 3D games or run any other form of resource demanding computer program without compromising on the weight of the laptop. It provides a superb combination of outstanding performance, great design and aesthetics and the mobility of a much smaller and less powerful laptop. The Dell XPS M1530 is the larger version of the best selling Dell XPS M1330 but adds a larger display but with the options to customize the insides with much more powerful components. Let me give you an idea of some of the typical components you get in a standard Dell XPSM150: Intel CORE 2 Duo 2GHz Processor T5750 (2.0GHz /2MB Cache, 667MHz FSB) The dual-core processor technology of the Intel Core 2 Duo processor delivers optimized power and efficient computing at an amazingly low power consumption. This processor is optimized for mult-threaded applications and programs which means you can run multiple demanding programs simultaneously. 4 GB Dual Channel DDR2 RAM, 667MHz It is a known fact that the more RAM in a computer, the more powerful it is and the faster it runs. The Dell XPS M1530 has a maximum RAM capacity of 4GB, providing the best solution to the demands of Windows Vista and other power hungry applications. 256MB Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT Graphic Card The 8600M GT from Nvidia is a dedicated graphics card, meaning that it has a dedicated 256MB of video memory solely with the purpose of generating and processing all the graphical requirements your laptop may require. A dedicated graphics card is always a better choice than a shared memory graphics card, as it does not put such a heavy strain on the overall system by processing graphical data using it's own memory. Connectivity Besides built in Wi-Fi, the Dell XPS has all the connectivity options you could ever need, from HDMI, Firewire, VGA, S-Video and 10/100 Ethernet ports, meaning that plugging your laptop into the company projector will no longer be a problem. There are also plenty of USB ports for any devices you may need to connect to the laptop. An interesting function is the 2 headphone jacks, meaning that you can use the laptop to watch a movie yet shared the sound privately between yourself and a friend. Warranty A 2-year dell warranty should cover any problems you face with your Dell XPS M1530 system as Dell customer service is great. With color variations of Tuxedo Black, Midnight Blue and Flamingo Pink, you will not regret getting your hands on this stylish and powerful gem that is the Dell XPS M1530.
