    Replacement fo XPS M1530

    Those who saw my other thread will know why I need to replace my beloved M1530. So short of getting another one, anyone suggest a better replacement?

    Will be used for Lightroom / Photoshop / Illustrator

    Cheers guys

    If only i hadn't sold my Dell Studio 17 Seem's it would of came in handy ay? I would recommend maybe looking at one of those mate or maybe the studio 15 if you want something a tad smaller.

    Yea spec that up on the dell website though and you are looking at nearly 4k though! Makes the macbook pro look cheap,they are doing the studio 15 with a core i7 mobile 6gb of ram a 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HP 4570, 500gb hard drive and a 15.6inch 1920 x 1080 HD screen for only £999 which i thought was pretty good.

    All of Dell's consumer laptops seem to force you to have horrible glossy screens :X Great if you want a mirror I guess.

    The latitudes don't seem to have been refreshed for this year yet, none of them have an option for blu-ray or core i7 (tho to be fair, they are business machines) They also seem to be stuck at 1440x900 nowadays instead of the 1680x1050 my D830 allows
