>> Hi I'm Dan Ackerman, senior editor at CNET.com. And I'm very excited to be here with the Dell XPS M1330. Now this is a new addition to Dell's XPS line, and one of the thinnest and lightest thirteen inch laptops that we've ever seen. It's even thinner and lighter than the fabled thirteen inch Apple Macbook. Now Dell's not exactly known for their innovative design. They make a lot of very workmanlike functional laptops and desktops, don't get me wrong, but they have pulled out the stops on this one. It's got a nice brushed metal keyboard tray, you've got this LED backlit display that is barely a quarter of an inch thick, and it comes in some cool colors. This guy is red right here, you can also get it in black and white. It's got a bunch of really cool features, like an HDMI input on this slide, and a slot loading DVD burner. And these touch sensitive compasitive [assumed spelling] media controls right here. It's also got standard stuff, like a fingerprint reader and a webcam. It's even got a pretty nice video card, so you can do some reasonable gaming on here. It's also got a little credit card size remote control that pops out of the slot hidden on the side of the laptop. We really like the thin taper design. If you look at it from the side, it's a little bit less than an inch in the front, and goes up to a little bit more than an inch in the back. It's super light and easy to handle, but all this design business does not come cheap. This is definitely a premium product, but it is the flagship of Dell's new laptop lineup. I'm Dan Ackerman, and that's the Dell XPS M1330. ^M00:01:22 [ music ]
Unless you're looking for a laptop to go with your red sports car, there are better-performing thin-and-lights than the Ferrari 3200.
With very good performance and battery life and even better design and features for its price, the Fit 14 is an exemplary thin-and-light.
At CES 2010, Scott Stein checks out the M11X, a thin-and-light gaming laptop from Alienware.
Between Netbooks and thin-and-light laptops lies the elusive ultraportable category. What's the best model you can buy right now? The MacBook Air and Acer TimelineX AS1830T step into the Prizefight ring to battle it out.
The Sentia's decent set of features can't make up for its subpar performance and high price; we recommend looking at a different thin-and-light laptop.
If looks could kill, the Acer Ferrari 3000LMi would be wanted for murder. But unless you're a fashionista first and foremost, look elsewhere for a better-performing thin-and-light laptop.
Starting at $549, the HP Pavilion dm3 aims to be an affordable Windows 7 thin-and-light laptop for those who don't want a thicker (and more tricked-out) machine, yet still want to accomplish tasks without feeling limited to Netbook-style performance.
The thin-and-light Sony VAIO VGN-S470P delivers an ideal combination of performance and features in a perfectly portable package.
A boom box, such as this Philips AZ1330D, can have all the features in the world, but if it's hard to carry, and it doesn't go boom, what's the point?
Dell's turn towards a 'design-first' philosophy continues to pay off with the XPS M1530, easily the best-looking 15-inch laptop in recent memory.
