Some sites already published a review of Dell's new ultraportable XPS m1330 notebook. This notebook is very thin and starts at a weight of only 4 pounds (1.8kg). The pricing of the XPS m1330 starts at $1,299 but for that price you don't get the parts you really want like an LCD display with LED backlight, 2GB memory (or more), a faster processor and a GeForce Go 8400M GS and some other fancy parts.

The guys from CNET took a look at the Dell XPS m1330 and gave the machine a 7.9/10.
Rounding out the laptop's external features are a Webcam on top of the display and a small, credit-card-size remote control that pops into PC card slot on the side.

The LED-backlit display, also seen in the new 15-inch MacBook Pro, helps to make the system's lid thinner (less than a quarter-inch thick) while also extending battery life, although users should not expect the display to look any different than a traditional LCD laptop screen. With a native resolution of 1,280x800--the same as on the 13-inch MacBook--you get the best mix of screen real estate and readability.
They praise the m1330 for its sexy design, good performance and LED-backlit display but are a bit annoyed by the small touchpad and the lack of SSD and Blu-ray.
