Reviews for the Dell XPS M1340

80% Dell Studio XPS M1340 from PC World Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
  Clearly Dell has rectified its issues with the Studio XPS M1340, which is a good thing. This retail system also delivers excellent performance and is slightly cheaper than the equivalent system from Dell, though it is held back by its 32-bit OS. However, while the CCFL backlit display is passable, knowing that the LED backlit version is so much better to view and is also lighter, makes it a near essential addition. This is still a great system, but if you're able to spend the extra, buying from Dell and getting the LED display is recommended.

Dell's new premium 13in notebook is a sight to behold. We investigate whether its "hybrid SLI" graphics make it the ultimate portable gaming rig. There’s no question this is a great notebook choice, especially if you need both power and portability, but don’t look at this as a portable gaming option. While it will play some games in lower settings, it’s going to be a bitter disappointment for desktop gamers looking for a notebook alternative.

NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GE: Combination from Nvidia GeForce 9400M (G) chipset and dedicated NB9M entry level graphics card (GeForce 9200M GS or 9300M GS) in GeForceBoost mode. For energy saving the laptop can run only with the 9400M chipset graphics core. In combination the 9500M GE has the disadvantages of SLI combos (micro stuttering e.g.).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


P9500:

The P9500 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and basically a Core 2 Duo T9400 with only 25 Watt TDP.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
