This post will be the last update about my order of a Dell XPS M1330: last week I spoke with my assigned sales person and found that she had no ideas about the real shipping date of my already paid notebook (ESD was still September, 26th).
Since I need a notebook with Windows Vista, smaller and cooler than my current Windows laptop (a really hot 2.0Ghz Centrino with a 15″ display), I decided to cancel my order and use the previous payment to order a Latitude D630: same price, better features. The new order has been placed on August 23th, the notebook has shipped on August 31th, so it will be in my hands within few days 😉
This is my Latitude D630 configuration:
- CPU Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 2.2Ghz
- NVIDIA® Quadro NVS 135M
- 14.1 WXGA (unfortunately the high-resolution display was on backorder)
- 4 GB RAM DDR2 667 Mhz
- 160GB SATA 7200rpm
- WI-FI Intel 4965AGN
- 9 cell battery 85Wh
- nylon thin case
- 3 years warranty NBD
- Windows Vista Ultimate
