Dell XPS M1530: 15.4

According to NotebookCheck.com (that’s where the cool image is from) the Dell XPS M1530 gets an average score of 83.69% (Good) with workmanship getting a really high 93% rating. The M1530 has a 15.4″ TFT LCD sporting a decent 1440 x 900 pixel format. At the $1099 price the 15.4″ LCD has a CCFL backlight but if you want to save the world from mercury poisoning you can opt for the LED backlight version for just $25 extra. There is also the option of getting a 1920 x 1200 LCD for an additional $150 but that gets you back to a CCFL backlight. The graphics is powered by NVIDIA’s GeForce 8600M GT with 256MB of RAM. The M1530 in this configuration is not the fastest in the land but it is plenty fast for most folks out there and for this price is a real bargain. Grab this deal while you can because it’s ending on December 7.
