Dell XPS M1530 Laptop


  1. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  2. I’ve owned the 1530 for about 5 months now after having my previous HP Pavilion dv6000 blow up a little after 14 months of use. Two years ago I thought the Pavilion was much better than anything Dell had to offer. But it appears Dell’s are more reliable than HP. I owned a HP desktop and had a good experience (I suppose you can call it that) after 2 years with it. So HP was the obvious choice. The morons sold me a defective product with the HP Dv6000. Weeks of back and forth with HP customer support and the wireless motherboard was faulty in addition to other problems. It was a freaking nightmare and this happened on Halloween 2009. I kid you not! As is such, I will never buy another HP product again. Absolutely horrible!

    Anyway back to the XPS 1530. My major quibble is with the keyboard and the touchpad which sometimes can be non-responive. This is a gaming computer but my room setup is such that its completely pointless to try and play any games plus I’m sure a high end games that require special, expensive graphic cards and bandwidth speed sucking for online gameplay would not work either. The keyboard is flimsy compared to anything I’ve used before but overall it loads quickly compared to previous, lower end Dell PCs. No problems with it YET. But I’m backing everything up as I move along and not installing any taxing programs or games that require tons of memory.

  3. I purchased an XPS M1530 and it has been a complete nightmare. The first one was defective and this was discovered two weeks after receiving it. Dell figured out something was very wrong. They tried to pawn a refurbished on me which did not wash.
    My case was mishandled and when I received the second one, I also had problems with a nonresponsive touchpad which continues.
    The programs I bought were never on the second XPS and even after they were downloaded, they never worked. Neither did the cash credit!! DO NOT BUY DELL!!
    I have for years but now I must admit that they have outsourced their product and service.

  4. I recently ordered a Dell XPS M1530 fully configured in Tuxedo Black, but they switched my order to Pink and won’t let me cancel the order. I have screenshots to prove it shouldn’t be black but they’re shipping me the pink one anyway.

    This doesn’t seem right, and now you can’t even order a Tuxedo Black, it’s either midnight blue or pink. What’s going on here? Very frustrating.

  5. My Dell XPS M1530 video card died on me 3 weeks ago. Got it replaced 10 days ago and now is dead again and have to send it in for replacement 2nd time. Dell has a separate service line just for XPS. That makes wonder…
