Dell has just launched a new 13.3-inch XPS notebook, which will be available in one of three colours, red, black or white. Well, the lid will be at least, since the rest of the system is either grey, silver or black, depending on what part of it you're looking at.

It's rather nice looking for a Dell design tough and it packs quite a lot of features. It will come with a choice of Core 2 Duo processors up to 2.2GHz, all but one at 800MHz bus, up to 4GB of DDR2 667MHz memory, a choice of integrated Intel GMA X3100 graphics or a GeForce Go 8400M with 128MB of GDDR3.

The screen has a native resolution of 1,280x800 and it's available with LED backlight as an option. Oddly enough, if you chose this option, the integrated web camera gets downgraded from a 2Mega pixel version to a 0.3Mega pixel one.

It has a built in slot loaded DVD writer and you have the option of fitting it with up to 200GB of traditional hard drive technology or a 32GB SSD drive, if you can afford the US$600 premium. It also has 2 USB ports, a FireWire connector, built in 10/100Mbit Ethernet, a D-Sub and HDMI connector, an ExpressCard 54 slot, a removable 8 in 1 memory card reader and finally a mic and headphone jack.

The XPS M1330 starts at US$1,299, but it will get very expensive from there on up. You can find out more here
