This 13.3" high end laptop, released on June 26, 2007, features the Santa Rosa platform. It features a 13.3" screen either with CCFL or WLED. The WLED-backlit version has a 0.3 MP camera, as opposed to the 2 MP camera with the CCFL screen.

Moreover, XPS 1330 can also feature a biometric fingerprint reader, usually found in business class laptops like the Latitude series.

XPS M1330 is no longer available for purchase on Dell's USA website as of early August 2009. It has been replaced by the M1340 (Studio XPS 13). The XPS M1330 is still available for purchase on Dell's UK website
