Dell Canada prices the XPS m1330 at CDN$1499

The hottest Dell laptop we've seen in a while just got an equally hot price -- a reader at the NotebookReview forums posted a scanned-in Dell Canada ad that lists the 4-pound XPS m1330 at CDN$1499 (that's about $1399 USD). It doesn't look like you'll be getting an LED backlight for that price, but you will score a T7100 Core 2 Duo, Vista Home Premium, 2GB of RAM, a 120GB disk, and a dual-layer DVD±RW drive, in your choice of three colors: Candy Red, Tuxedo Black, or Pearl White. No word on when these might start shipping, but it's obvious we're getting close.

Update: The m1330 just popped online for Canadian retail.

Update 2: US site now updated. Giddy up!
