HardwareZone reviews Dell XPS M1210 laptop with the configuration of a T2600 Core Duo processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 7200RPM hard drive and a GeForce Go7400 graphics card, and concludes that “while these specifications may be excessive for some, we feel users should really consider pumping in just that bit more money to get the most from the M1210 platform. For example, the base version only comes with an Intel GMA950 graphics, so gaming is effectively ruled out. Overall, the Dell XPS M1210 is a nicely crafted and designed package that’s favorably packed with features. If you are an executive who leads an exciting gaming life after 5pm, the Dell XPS M1210 is a fine notebook to indulge your money in. Even strict white-collar workers will find the portability, performance and value of a plainly configured M1210 too tempting to disregard.”
PC Magazine gives very good editors’ rating of 4 out of 5 and concludes that Dell’s latest XPS is a notebook for anyone who has a specific yearning for power, connectivity, and ultra-lightweight portability. The notebook is good for ultralight for flights, built-in EV-DO, discrete graphics, superior horsepower and vivid display. But it runs hot.

It can play games. Keyboard and mouse rock. Battery life of 6hrs+, good HD choices size/speed in build process. Fast DDR2 memory. However, M1210 lacks of good software pre-installed with the system, expensive, blue lights on front that may drains battery life and it’s been really hard to find anything bad to say about this notebook.
