Re: Dell XPS model difference
Well I did some research and I found that the M1530 has a faster processing speed and a bigger monitor than the x1530. The m1530 has a 15 inch and the x1530 has a 14 and the price is different other than that basically they are the same set up just 2 slightly different versions hope this helps.

Dell XPS M1530 Drivers for Windows XP are available at the following sites http://www.notebook-driver.com/dell/dell-xps-m1530-laptop-windows-xp-drivers/ http://www.getpcmemory.com/drivers/download-dell-xps-m1530-notebook-windows-xp-drivers/ http://forum.notebookreview.com/dell-xps-studio-xps/254815-xps-m1530-windows-xp-driver-pack-final-udi.html
specced a Studio 15 for $1457 on the Dell site (the official starting
price is currently $1,149), to get it closer on paper to Dell's XPS M1530. We also specced an entry level XPS M1530 for $1798.
We're not entirely convinced the $300 step up to the XPS M1530 is a must.
differences are processor and graphics. On our Studio 15 we have
Intel's Core 2 Duo P8400, vs the T8300 on the XPS M1530. The P8400 has a
lower clock speed at 2.26GHz chip vs 2.4GHz for the T8300, and has 3MB
cache (same as the XPS). On the other hand, the P8400 is a 25watt chip,
vs 35W for the T series, so in theory it's more battery efficient.
The Studio 15 is also on the new Centrino 2 platform, and has a 1066MHz FSB, vs 800MHz for the XPs.
other major difference is graphics. The entry level Studio 15 gives you
the choice of either Intel's integrated graphics (4500MHD), the better
choice for battery life, or 256MB Ati Mobility Radeon HD 3450. The XPS
eschews integrated graphics in favour of 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT.
notebooks come with internal DVD combo drives, though there is a
Blu-Ray option on the entry level XPS. The XPS also has an integrated
mobile broadband option, which wasn't mentioned on our Studio 15.
Studio 15's Centrino 2 platform and solid spec stack up well against
the entry level XPS M1530. It seems the XPS' advantages here are mostly
in terms of its sleeker design, and slightly lighter weight (2.62Kg vs
2.77Kg for the Studio 15).
Studio 15 vs Inspiron 1525 We
also configured a top end Inspiron 1525 for comparison. Our spec
included Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 (same as the XPS), the same 1440x900
scren as the XPS, 3GB RAM (same as Studio 15), and 320GB HDD (same as
Studio 15). Bluetooth and wireless n were add-on modules, and there was
no dedicated graphics option, only Intel's older generation X3100.
the older Centrino platform, older graphics, and without the LED
screen, our Inspiron 1525 spec came to $1527 - actually more than the
In this comparison, the Studio 15 stacks up as the
better buy, and it's also solid value against the more expensive XPS. If
you're looking for a solid mid-range laptop, we recommend you place the
Studio 15 on your shopping list.
thsi guy is **** he put this info on my question too, he only got master rank by putting the same solution on 101 different laptop questions and the websites are all the same. sorry its not an answer but he is annoying
contact Customer support first and have them help you diagnose it. If you just bought it, you shouldn't try to do anything too drastic. You might want to back up your files right now though because it might get worse or you might have to send it to Dell and they may send you a completely different laptop. Back up, call Dell.
