Ooohhhh, the box.

That’s the sleeve that Dell includes free of charge with all XPS M1330s.

As you can see, the power adapter’s no bigger than my Sony Ericsson K790.

The LED backlit panel that I got is a good 2.5mm thinner than the CCFL one.

Like the MacBook (Pro), the hinge design prevents the M1330 from opening 180 degrees.

The lid is finished in a manner that picks up a lot of fingerprints and makes them difficult to clean off.

Yep, brighter than my desktop LG 204WT.

It’s also one of the most uniform displays I’ve ever used.

  1. Hi

    I’ve read your review on NBR, good job!

    I’ve one question about the remote control, is it possible to use the it for powerpoint-presentations?

  2. Thanks!

    The remote works perfectly for PowerPoint. But because it’s IR, you have to have direct line of sight. I tested it up to around 10 feet and it was very responsive.

  3. The charger you picktured is that the standard charger that comes with the laptop or is it the thin one offered by Dell for $65 extra?

  4. I’m still waiting for mine to come but thanks for your review and the great pictures! Is that the 6cell and 9cell battery displayed in one of the pictures? Do you have any experiences regarding the battery live with these?

  5. All the photos shown here are with the 6 cell battery. Take a look at my review (linked in the post) for some very detailed battery life tests. Hopefully that helps.

  6. Yep, there’s a switch for WLAN as well as whatever other wireless cards you set up in the QuickSet application. The Wifi Catcher toggle’s there as well.

  7. I just received my m1300. I don’t think my wifi catcher is working properly. Sometimes, when I know that I am in a wifi hotspot, when I check my wifi catcher, it will only flash one blue led light momentarily. That’s it. It won’t do it anymore.
    Do you have any suggestions?

  8. I have a M1330 featuring T7300 and X1300. It seems that Intel Dynamic Acceleration never kicks in. From your pics I see that is not your case. In what circumstances you recorded that FSB rise? (it seems that even in spi considering your time for 2M)
