Pictures of the Dell XPS m1330

Right after unpacking this nice laptop computer I started to take some pictures of the machine that I wanted to share with you.

The pictures cover the latop from all kinds of angles, and I tried to focus on the details of the m1330, like the headphones, give you an idea how the batterys stick out of the case or the extra sleeve that Dell delivers with the m1330 or the multimedia playback buttons including the remote control to control Windows Media Player and others and the biometric fingerprint reader for all security fans.

Listen to music on the XPS m1330

Right on the front the m1330 has two (!) audio jacks, so it is really convenient to listen to music or watch a movie together. Right next to the audio output you can see the card reader

Battery indicator on the m1330

Each of the batteries that are available (6 and 9 cell) come with a power indicator on the outside. If you press the little button underneath the battery the LEDs light up to show you how much power is left.

And the larger 9 cell battery:

With the larger 9 batttery, the bottom of the laptop is risen a bit. This makes it look more bulkier but it is also better to write on of the keyboard is not totally flat.

M1330 remote control

The Dell m1330 comes with a remote control for your multi media application. Like controlling videos or your music.

To store it away when you don’t need it Dell came up with the idea of putting it into the card slot, which works quite well:

Sleeve for the m1330

When opening my Dell m1330 I was surprised to see that Dell put in an extra sleeve for this notebook. It is made out of plastic with a magnetic lid that holds on pretty well. You can even get den m1330 in the sleeve with the big battery.

After some hassle with Vista and some older softwarre versions that I had that did not work I decided to install the good old Windows XP. It took some time, but it worked out pretty well, everything is up and running:
