Dell XPS M1330

YES! was my first reaction when I walked into the house finding the box containing the laptop.

And even though it's been several hours since that moment, I'm still thrilled to finally receive it.  Oh and it's a Dell XPS M1330.

It normally sells around £700/£800 mark (or more in some instances) but I managed to get it for £425.  Yes, you heard that right.  It's a long story.  My uncle works in the electronics business (he's a electronics wholesaler or something) and he nabbed 6 of these bad boys when a company went bankrupt and had to sell all it's stock.  Kaching!

So far, my experience with the laptop has been great.  The camera is good, and boasts a multitude of features.  The keyboard is great, with a good feel and good feedback.  There's a HDMI output and 2 USB ports.  Two headphone jacks and a microphone input slot.  The whole appearance with the clash of futuristic silver and black makes for a very swish and stylish look and feel.

For some reason, I also managed to get Windows Vista Business version on it.  *shrugs* Ah well, it's not like there's any major difference.  Everything came installed (including the OS, Microsoft Office, sound drivers etc.) and all I had to do was take it out of it's (gigantic) box and press the power button.  Real convenient.

And the amount of stuff I got that came with it was a nice touch too.  Here's a list of the top of my head:

  • The laptop (obviously)
  • Noise-reduction headphones (with a pouch)
  • A remote control (that actually works)
  • A laptop case
  • A laptop bag
  • A bunch of CDs (including office and drivers)
  • A manual folder thing
  • Several cardboard boxes and bubble-wrap/polystyrene

You got to agree with me on this:  I got one helluva sweet deal.

Here are some pictures I took using my webcam.  Sorry for the low picture quality, I've still yet to get a proper camera; I'm skint now after splashing out on the laptop.

The remote control doo-hickey (propped against my clock.


The manual.

What about the actual laptop?  I hear you ask.

Well... let's just say... I did a video instead!  Also with the webcam.  Enjoy.

I'm taking it to college with me tomorrow to do two things:

  1. See if college has an wireless internet connection I could abuse
  2. Show off

To be honest, it's mainly number 2.  lulz


Anyway, I don't have time for any more typing.  I've got homework to do.  *sigh*

Dude, even after putting that through the translator (Portugese to English); I still have no idea what the hell you're on about.
Your english seems fine, judging by the final few sentences, so I don't understand why you didn't write it in english.
