Default Dell XPS m1530 + Penryn

Hey guys, I am really interested in buying a Dell XPS m1530, especially which some of their sales that are currently running, but I have been trying to hold out for Intel's Penryn 9000s to hit the m1530s. This is REALLY frustrating as the penryn chips went into the m1330s, as of Feb 4th, and as of Feb 14th they hit the m1730s. What the **** happened to m1530 line? Does anyone know they are gonna start putting these chips into the 15.4 inch models? I dont know how much longer I can wait! Thanks in advance!

Electronista | Dell quiet on XPS notebook shock issue

from the M1330 i wouldnt trust XPS anymore..... unless you like getting painfully shocked.

knowing dell they probably wont fix it even in the M1530's because their lazy and a bad company.

oh BTW i hate dell.

Difolo: Assuming you're in the US, I don't think you need to worry about the shock issue. I, too, am interested in the m1530, and it seems that the only computers with the shocking issues are European models without the grounding wire. All the US models have cables with the third grounding plug and thus the shocking/tingling doesn't exist. I'm pretty sure that I've read a statement of Dell's stating that all new laptops don't have this problem, but that's neither here nor there for us anyway.

As per your original question, I don't know about the Penryn. I hope they come soon, too, and I also hope we might have the option of an 8800 GT in the laptop, but that's just a pipe dream haha. I'll live with the 8600 GT.

take care

Yea, this is really ****ing me off. You can now purchase inspirion 14' and 17' with penryn's, just like the XPS. Is dell having some kind of complications with the 15' line as both XPS and inspirion will be the last to carry it.
