If you're interested in this product, bet you've already seen the design-focused blog entry and vlog on the XPS M1330. A few performance-related things that this sub-4 pound notebook supports are:
In this vlog, Matt Jorgensen provides a good overview of the features that the XPS M1330 offers.

Lydia: There's plenty of room for an internal tuner. There's lots of options... Here's a TV tuner card search from our Electronics & Accessories site.
I personally run a VBOX 150 HDTV tuner in my XPS 700 and over-the-air HD content looks pristine. If you're going to record HD though, you need some hard drive space... in my experience, a 1-hr HD program takes about 6 - 7GB.
Kudos to Dell for this laptop. It seems to be one of the better consumer laptops offered by Dell. Lets work on getting the price of the Solid State drive down. $600 to add that on is far too high for consumers, and not necessarily a good decision for businesses.
Can something like this laptop be expected in the Latitude line in the near future?
Craig: Awesome.... glad you like the M1330 design. Can't talk about any future Latitude roadmap details at this point, but will blog about any new developments.
To your comment about SSD drives, you're right. They're still expensive. Like a lot of new technologies, it will take time for the prices to come down. The first step in that process though is to make them available on more systems, and we're trying to do that. If our competition does the same, that will also help bring prices down.
SSD drives are a technology I'm interested in as well. I'll try to include more details about them in future posts.
Eric: Jayayess1190 is right on the mark with his comment. The LED screen is thinner. That's why we could only fit a VGA resolution camera in there.
In addition to being thinner, the LED screen is brighter and it's more energy-efficient. It also costs a bit more ($150 premium) and like you mentioned, only accommodates a VGA camera.
It really boils down to what's more important to you.
Having seen both side-by-side, my personal opinion is that it's hard to pass up the LED display. :)
Above, it states: "Intel Core 2 Duo processors up to 2.4GHz" When will the T7700 be available. Currently, the max is the T7500 (2.2G). I WANT this machine and I will order, but I want the T7700.
One would think that gigE would be the norm nowadays. When/will gigE NIC be available??
I would order an m1330 immediatly, but for the above.
I was wondering if you could provide insight on this. I would like to inquire about which specific Dell Truemobile bluetooth module the XPS m1330 shipped with. I have spoken to XPS chat all day and have received various answers, ranging from unreasonable to reasonable. Please provide a solid answer if possible.
I agree with RichardN's comments above. You have created a beautiful combination of form and function, and I would be sending you money right now, if it weren't for:
This is the achilles heel of the m1330, and I can't put this into my network.
Can you please tell us when 10/100/1000 will be available?
Thank you, Dell ROCKS!Michael
I also would like a clarification on the T7700 (2.4G) question.
If/when will this CPU be available in the 1330??
Hey, I just ordered an xps m1330 yesterday, but I still haven't recieved my "order confirm" email with my order number etc. I am going abroad at the end of July. Will I be able to get my system by then? Thanks!
I was hoping that someone from Dell actually reads these posts - and answers them. I guess not? It's been 2 days with no response.
1. T7700??? (2.4G CPU)
2. Gig Ethernet NIC.
When/if on both??
... and, just found out that the m1330 doesn't have Firewire 800?
Dell, please -- complete the m1330. Give it Gigabit and Firewire 800.
And let me know when you do, so I can send you money.
I'm thinking of getting a m1330 to drive a 1080p projector through the hdmi port. Does the m1330 generate 1080p resolution? Will the windows desktop resize to 1080x1920 on the projector when connected?
