Default Anyone here have a dell XPS m1530?

I just bought one off dell, with the core 2 t9300 procesor (2.5 gig, 6 meg cache, 800mhz FSB), the nvidia 256meg geforce 8600 m gt, the LED LCD screen (1440x950 I think res, the LED backlight should be cool), and the rest of the basic stuff. I got a deicent deal, buy one get one half off, so my dad got one too and we paied like $2800 total shipped.

If anyone has it, how do you like it? Ive read all good, and its going to be my college computer.

I've had mine for a couple of months now and I've only got a few complaints. It gets ridiculously hot sometimes, like it could burn you almost. The hard drive and disc drive are both pretty noisy when they're active and listening to anything on the speakers is like hearing it through a tin can telephone. The speakers are the worst part, it's unbearable most of the time. Otherwise great computer, haven't had any other problems hardware related.

Thats good to hear, I plan on using headphones if im listing to music or anything so I dont care much about the speakers.

Does it feel pretty solid? Hows the weight?
