Fresh from the introduction of its XPS One all-in-one system, Dell has rolled out a new 15" notebook. Like the One, this new portable is part of the XPS lineup, and it appears to have been designed with style in mind.
The XPS M1530 starts at $999, delivering a 15.4" 1280 x 800 display, Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 128MB Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS graphics with HDMI output, a 120GB hard drive, a slot-loading DVD burner, 802.11g Wi-Fi, a built-in webcam, a fingerprint reader, and touch-sensitive multi-media buttons. Pricier versions add faster CPUs, more RAM, faster graphics, and 802.11n Wi-Fi. XPS M1530 notebooks have a starting weight of 5.78 lbs (2.62 kg) and are just 0.93-1.38" (2.37-3.51 cm) thick.
