Dell :: 1366x768 Vs 1920x1080
Would all of you suggest how much much difference 1920x1080 will make over 1366x768 on Studio 15 i.e. 15.6'' screen?

One thing I know is that the font size will be small for more resolution.

Would you list the pros. & cons. of the higher resolution?

Is it worth to pay the difference .....

Dell :: All The Small Things About The SXPS 16
Standard English (not bilingual) keyboard, so full-size left Shift and normal Enter key

Arrow keys fully integrated into the keyboard so the bottom 3 arrows don't stick out and none are 1/2 size of regular keysWhite backlights and hinge lights,

which I think represent simplicityFlush screen (plastic cover) that hides the cam light and stuff,

so it seems all integrated and stealthy-lookinI actually like the fact that there is only 1 plate to remove on the bottom of the laptop, makes it seem more organized

Dell :: 1920x1080 In The Studio 1555?
they are selling a 1920x1080 screen in a 15.6" screen, isnt that really hard to see?
i found the 1080p in my studio xps crap.

i think 720p is perfect for that screen.

in the uk you can only pick the two, something in the middle would be nice.

Dell :: Vostro Latops Just For Small Businesses?
With Vostro models, from what Ive read they are designed for small businesses. Does this mean I cannot buy it as an individual consumer?Im a student,

and prefer the look and options available in Vostro, and the prices seem more reasonable.

But is this because they are offered to small businesses and you must show evidence of this on purchase? Im also still a little uneasy with purchasing a Dell, so any advice would be great

Dell :: Small Series Of Vertical Lines
I have vertical lines on my m1330 but not the same kind that I keep finding in my searches.

My computer doesn't crash, it just has a few lines up and down the screen when I boot and they stay there.

A bit of history, the computer was dropped by the previous owner (one of my coworkers) and the screen was broken so I bought a replacement LCD for it and swapped it out.

Worked great for two weeks until I got the lines. Its still functional, the lines are just annoying and I'm worried about a burn in. I tried taking the screen apart again and checking my connections but the lines are still there

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 1920x1080 DPI
Following up on some discussion of how small the text is on the RGBLED (pronounced R G Bleed?) in standard DPI, it's just too small for me. I would have preferred a resolution around the 1680x1050 range on a notebook this size.

The other standard definitions that are available are not 16:9 so they don't work well, and using other resolutions than the native LCD resolution generally results in a loss of sharpness.

It also occurs that using non-standard DPI settings result in skewing or lowering quality of images and page layouts in browsers and some desktop applications as well. Someone else can probably give a technical reason as to why this is. All I know is I see it. I see text running over into other text on web pages and text out of place on desktop applications (rarely), especially dialog boxes (more often). I'm sure this is due to the fact that the rendering program is expecting smaller text. What is happening, I think, is that the DPI setting is just changing the rendered size of the text, but the rest of the rendering (images, graphics, borders, window edges, etc.) is using standard dimensions/resolution .....

Dell :: D830 Screen (a Very Small Black Speck)
I have owned a 10-month-old Latitude D830 (w/1680x1050 screen) for about 8 months now. It's a great machine, but I've decided to sell it in favour of something smaller.

Since I bought it, it has had a very small black speck on the screen that does not wipe away when cleaning it. To me it looks like dust behind the LCD surface rather than a dead pixel .....

Acer :: 4810TZ & A Small Review
The design looks simply beautiful. The silver lid and the gun metal color inside is awsome. The dark colors inside will help in not causing any strain for your eyes even after working for long time.

The touchpad too has a matte finish, making it easy to use. It is very responsive. The scroll and zoom gestures helps a lot in reducing the effort though am not convinced with the third gesture, would be good if this gesture could be used for something better.

Option to turn off/on the bluetooth and wifi via the buttons/touch buttons is really good, I had trouble with some other laptops trying to find out how to do this.

The option to turnoff the screen helps conserve energy, while listening to music or doing some activity which do not need any human intervention. The screen is bright enough. I keep it at the lowest brightness while working, without any issues...............

Dell :: Ireland10% Price Increase On Small Business Site
I may be wrong but it looks like dell ireland have increased all the prices in their small business site by 10%! The base prices are the same but upgrading anything is now 10% more expensive.

Just from looking at precision laptops.

Upgrade to 64bit os was 50 euro, now 55 euro.

Component example, yesterday it cost 440 euro to update the graphics card on a m6400 from a FX2700M to a FX3700M, today it costs 490 for the same upgrade

HP/Compaq :: Super Small Resolution (Pavilion Ze4420us)
A friend of mine has an HP Pavilion ze4420us laptop and seems to have a problem. When his computer starts up the screen is reduced in size so that all you can see is a 6"x6" area that's using the screen. Everything is displayed normally inside this "box". Once windows loads it's fine though.

some manufactures have a "Fn+key" or "shift+key" type of shortcut that will change an internal setting and enlarge or reduce the picture being displayed.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000- Spilled Only A Small Amount Of Tea On The Keyboard
My son spilled only a small amount of tea on the keyboard. knowing what could come out of it, I turned it off right away. After cleaning and drying for a few hours, i turned it on, and managed to a couple of times. The next day I tried to turn it on again, and as it was displaying Bios info, I saw one of the flat cables under the keyboard melt slightly. I turned it of right away. This cable is one of the two coming out of the panel over the keyboard, to be exact the left one, from the on/off button to the motherboard.

Bought the cable online, and still does not work. I CAN hear the computer turn on, the lights are all as usual, and boot and even go into windows, but I cant see anything on the screen. I have seen a really really dark and dim shadow of the boot, even the windows logo, but its almost invisible.

Acer :: Can A 1920x1080 Resolution Be Reduced To 1366x768 In 6930/6920
all available screen resolutions on the full hd version (1920x1080) of their 6930/6920? I'd like to know if it can be reduced to 1366x768 before I buy the notebook so I can have a true pixel for pixel reproduction when connected to my HD ready plasma. I know I could just buy the lower resolution version of this notebook but I've read that 768 vertical pixels is not enough for this 16" display, too much scrolling it seems and one review even said that graphics on the screen look almost jagged when compared side by side to a notebook with a higher resolution.

Sony :: Approved: Z11's 1920x1080 Screen Is Inferior Compared To 1600x900 One
I had the chance to review two configurations side by side in Saturn Vienna.

I assure you, the one with the 1600x900 is noticeably brighter and more saturated than the 1920x1080 one. Both are TN panels, but the colors in FHD panel have a tendency to distort sooner relative to the viewing angles. I can't say that the FHD isn't crisper than the other one because resolution does have its obvious advantage in terms of crispiness. But an uneducated eye won't be able to distinguish crispness difference between the panels when the fonts are scaled to be equal on both screens. Although both panels are LED back-lit, the FHD one looks like a fluorescent back-lit panel when compared to the 1600x900 one side-by-side.

I was both disappointed and relieved to have seen the difference. I was about to order the FHD panel, however because of some problems with the supplier, it kept on delaying. I guess there is always good in bad. Now I canceled my order entirely. I will opt for 1600x900, no matter how much I crave for the highest resolution.

In summary, the US guys who were muttering about the lack of FHD option in, don't have to anymore I would go for the 1600x900 panel every time. But this doesn't mean that the FHD is a bad panel. It just isn't AS good as the 1600x900. I wouldn't regret to have chosen it. But now that I have the choice not to, I won't. So long for the Sony Euroasia envy

Dell :: My Reason Why XPS M1330 Has A "small" Touch Pad.
I just recently realized why Dell's M1330 laptop has small touch pad. (sorry if this was already talked about in another thread).

I've read reviews complaining about the small touch pad on this laptop. I was using it the other day and looked down at my hands while typing. My palms were about 1/4 of an inch away from the touch pad.

If I wasn't careful I'd accidentally brush the touch pad and cause the mouse cursor to go flying across the screen .....

it says 16.4" H1080 WXGA++ (1920 x 1080) Widescreen X-black LCD screen with built-in "Motion Eye" Digital Camera, but is it a 1920x1080 dual lamp, multiple lamp(how many?) orr single lamp? make sure its the fw35v not the fw35x. the fw35v is the one that costs £60 to upgrade the screen. the fw35x says HD1080 (1920x1080) X-black LCD with multiple lamp, which im guessing is a dual lamp LCD right? also is the Dual lamp worth it for £60?
what does it do? give brighter?, sharper?, more deep and rich colours? or something else?

Has anyone clean installed Windows 7 on their new Inspiron laptops? I just bought a E1545 and it came with Windows 7. I'd like to clean install and I was wondering if it was as easy as popping in the Windows 7 DVD and waiting for it to install and then just dling the drivers online and installing.

And how about Windows XP? I know most people have gotten used to and accepted Windows 7... but has anyone installed WIndows XP on their laptop that came with Windows 7 originally? I mean a native install, not virtual...

If no one has done this yet, I am willing to create a guide if it is requested and if I succeed in doing so...

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 Accessing Windows XP's Files Wirelessly
with a new computer, hp dv6 on windows 7, i need to transfer windows xp files over.
so it's sort of like drag and drop, except wirelessly.

the windows xp is a desktop with a router configured and the laptop configured to use the router for wireless access...

ive been trying to understand how all this works, but i cannot simply manage to access windows xp, or using windows xp to access windows 7!

i have a cat5 cable if that is needed... but i dont know what to do with it..
Even if it's not wireless and with the CAT5 cable, i am willing as long as it gets transferred, i just prefer wireless

and i think i rea that Homegroup is not compatible with Windows XP so what do I use?

it's also confusing that in my Network Map on windows 7, it does not pick up the shared documents folder on my desktop.

Apple :: Bootcamp 3.0 - Windows XP Or Windows 7
So since Bootcamp 3.0 is out what's more sensible to use; XP or seven? I know originally, Bootcamp was written for Windows XP and everyone (Forumers) said Bootcamp will work best with Windows XP even after Vista came out. I've read Bootcamp 1.2 was released so that all the Apple hardware components would work with Vista (AKA driver updates).

Now since bootcamp 3.0 is out; Will it be worth while to upgrade to windows 7? In other terms, will Seven give me better battery power opposed to bootcamping in XP? Whether it's facts or speculation; Is Bootcamp 3.0 set better to work with windows 7? OR is is like the Bootcamp 1.2; Did Apple release 3.0 so that apple hardware will be compatible with Windows Seven (driver updates)? and I do know the final version of seven isn't out but I don't think it will differ much from the release candidate kernal (correct me if I am wrong). Thanks and sorry if my wording confuses you, been working all day.

Dell :: Windows 7 On M4400
When I got my M4400 last week, it had Vista Business installed - wasn't bad and unlike most people, I've NEVER had issues with Vista Anyway being a Microsoft Gold customer, I got my hands on the Windows 7 Ultimate RTM version and installed this on the laptop.

It has transformed the laptop just like it did my PCMUCH quicker, the graphics seem a lot happier in W7 too.

I've installed all my other tools such as SQL2008, Office 07, Virtual PC with VMs, VS 2008 etc etc but it doesnt even flinch under pressure.

If you are happy with M4400 and Vista, you will be even happier with W7 - small mini review but I thought I should give you my quick thoughts on it.

Dell :: E4300 + Windows 7
Windows 7 runs amazingly on this machine (specs in sig). Though, it ran fantastic with Vista as well.

Despite my overall good experience thus far, there are a few things to note:

1) The webcam. Yeah, it works fine with AIM and what not out of the box, but I'd like it if Dell released an official Win7 driver + Win7 Webcam Central to better support the Latitudes.

2) The Ambient Light Sensor. It's a bit wonky under Win7, so I've left it disabled for the time being and manually change the brightness when needed. Again, I'd like to see Dell release a Win7 version of the ALS Utility found under their Vista drivers.
