The 1520 was better, IMO. I have a 1520 configured like this:

1280x800 Glossy Screen
160GB 5400RPM Hard Drive (Free at the time)
Intel Core 2 Duo T7300
2GB of RAM (Free at the time)
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
Plus a $250 coupon brought it to around $1300.

I have to say it's the best deal I ever made. All the games I play, like UT3, BF2, Guitar Hero, all run at maximum settings. The only game I tone down is Crysis, and I set that to medium. An 8600M GT in this would make it far more interesting. Now it's not even an option. You have to go up to the 1720 or even the 15.4'' XPS.
