High definition TV looks great full screen on this model with a USB tuner.

Regardless of of size, go with the model that has latest technology. It seems engineers reinvent the wheel with every new model. Port and DVD placement is important to me. Personally I hate models that put the DVD drive on the right side. It gets in the way of the mouse. The design of xps m1710 is perfect for my needs. The newer M1530 and the M1730 totally suck in comparison. But it all depends on how you are going to use it. By August there may be newer models to choose from.
