The Dell XPS M1330 is an ultraportable performance laptop that's part of the XPS line of notebooks which focus on power and features. The 13.3" screen is LED backlit based which allows for a slimmer profile. Similar to other laptops in this price range, the M1330 is built on Intel's Santa Rosa platform which includes the Core 2 Duo processor, integrated B/G/N wireless, and Bluetooth. A separate video card, the nVidia GeForce 8400M GS, is available as a configuration option as an upgrade over the standard integrated graphics.
Whether a separate video card is used Dell is including an HDMI output port for connecting the computer to various display units. While no Blu-Ray or HD-DVD configuration exists, with HDMI protected content playback will be supported. Other ports include two USB, one mini-FireWire, and a multicard reader.
