Dell fills out XPS laptop line

Debuts 15in model

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Dell has rolled out its latest XPS laptop, a model that builds on the m1330, launched last May, with a bigger, 15.4in widescreen display and available with an optional slot-load Blu-ray Disc drive.

The XPS m1530 can be configured with a range of Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processors, up to 4GB of 667MHz DDR 2 memory and a number of hard drive options, including a 64GB solid-state disk. Graphics come courtesy of either an Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS with 128MB of video memory, or a 256MB GeForce 8600M GT.

Bu despite having a 15.4in diagonal size, the screen's resolution is just 1280 x 800 - a ratio more common with smaller displays.

The laptop has the usual array of USB, Firewire, Ethernet (10/100Mb/s) and VGA ports, but it also features an HDMI connector to allow it to drive HD TVs. There's an eight-in-one memory card reader and an ExpressCard 54 slot too.

Other refinements include a two-megapixel webcam mounted above the display, Bluetooth 2.0 if you want it, a variety of Wi-Fi options, including 802.11n, and WAN cards too.

UK prices start at £699, US prices at $999. Available now, the m1530 comes in a choice of red, black and white colour schemes.
