As shown below, this XPS M 1530 has many quality components and high end features.
As described above, this is a very capable notebook PC even at the starting configuration. If you budget is just $849, then going with this base design will still give you a really nice computer that is good for games, multimedia, movies, Internet, etc. However, if you have a little more to spend, you can do a few upgrades that will turn this into an incredibly powerful portable computer.
You can step up the processor to a 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 (800Mhz FSB, 3MB Cache) for $125. For $100 you can improve the display to a high resolution 1440x900 pixel LED LCD. (Since this computer has the graphics card and Blu-Ray drive to support high definition movies, upgrading the resolution of the screen will be a visible improvement.
For just $35 you can step up the memory from 3GB to 4GB. Since this has the 64-bit version of Vista, you'll be able to make full use of the 4GB too!
For just $125 you can upgrade to the ultra performance 128GB solid state drive. This is an upgrade that makes everything so much faster, it is hard to believe. Boot time is dramatically improved, as is loading applications and pretty much doing anything. You'll notice that you don't have so many annoying pauses as you use programs, browse through web pages, etc. However, if you need a lot of storage space (and do not want an external hard drive), you are better off staying with the default hard drive, because at 500GB it gives you a lot more storage.
