The Dell XPS M1210 computer PC is powered by current 1.66 GHz Intel Pentium Dual-Core Central Processor T2300 and it features 2-MB L2 Cache,dell laptop Battery, 667 MHz FSB, Intel Alviso 915GM / ICH6-M Chipset, 512-MB DDR2-533 SDRAM (667 MHz), 60 GB SATA 5400 rpm hard drive and a general 24X DVD/CD-RW Combo Optical Drive.
The Core Duo processor family has proven itself as a important performer in many past reviews on this internet site, Dell Precision m90 Battery and Dell is providing the higher end Core Duo CPU options in the M1210. Core Solo is not even an option for the M1210 -- it's higher octane gas just for this machine. The hard drive offerings are impressive, with the option of a 100GB 7200RPM hard drive available -- that's right at the cutting edge of notebook hard drives on the market today. If you're a fan of lots of system RAM, the max RAM of 4.0GB should make you smile. The system under review has 1.0GB of memory, which should be ample for most users, but if you consider you need more then there's plenty of room to add it.

Instead of running battery bench mark tests I used a real world battery drain test. At 100% charge I set the screen to half-brightness and pulled the plug on the XPS M1210. I then performed several projects such as downloading and setting up Half Life 2 and playing it for a bit, surfboarding the web,Dell Vostro 1500 Battery downloading and installing 3DMark05, watching 10 minutes of a DVD, edited some photos for this review and also turned off wireless and just let the M1210 idle for many time. In setting all of this the 9-cell battery ran down to 5% charge and Windows shut the notebook down at 2h 58 mins of usage. Since the M1210 here is configured with a dedicated graphics card and faster CPU and I left wi-fi on, that time isn't bad. If you had embedded graphics, wi-fi off and set your screen smartness lower you could easily attain 4.5 hours. My test was pretty abusive in terms of applying demanding programs while on battery power.
Price and Availability
Our test unit, processed with a 2-GHz Core 2 Duo T7200 C.P.U. and 1GB of DDR2-667 SDRAM, created a WorldBench 5 score of 102, a Dell Latitude d820 Battery result that's 5 percent better than the mark of 97 earned by the average XP Media Center Edition notebook with the same-speed equivalent of the earlier generation Core Duo CPU. And our test machine's solid battery life should present you ample time to spend an afternoon telecommuting at the local chocolate shop or watching an in-flight DVD: The M1210 lasted 4 hours, 23 minutes on a nine-cell battery.
I get to play with a lot of computer with the work I do, and believe it or not that can actually get tedious when you see one laptop after the other that's just kind of the same. The M1210 is various though, it's a 12.1" notebook that's designed to be powerful and fun. You can game on it, comfortably watch and listen to movies on it, use it to record video,Dell Latitude d620 Battery be highly mobile and connected with the EVDO option and to top it all off the look is actually good. I love the black lid and blue accent lights. It's surely one of the thicker 12.1" notebooks out there, but the goal was not to be the thinnest and lightest in the category, but rather the most functional and well equipped. I consider Dell accomplished that, the XPS M1210 offers the most fun and most possibilities in a 12.1" screen form factor of any such notebook computer on the market.
