Acer :: Keep AA1 Or Return For A HP Mini 2140

Feb 26, 2009

I have until Monday to return my AA1 to walmart. So far I do like it and find the netbook really useful. I'm debating whether to return it and spend 170 bucks more for the hp minii 2140. The AA1's keyboard IS a little cramped, but I can still type good on it.

As biased AA1 owners, what do you think and what made you choose the AA1 over others?

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini 2140 Vs Mini 1000 (10" Model)

Jan 21, 2009

I'm trying to figure out the difference between the two other than the casing (one's metal and one's plastic). The 2140 uses a SATA connector vs a PATA connector. So for $25 extra(lowest config 2140 vs highest config 1000) you get a metal case and SATA connector?

Why would anyone buy the 1000? Am I missing something? Oh and the 2140 has a higher volatage adapter for 'fast charging'...what's left for the 1000?

HP/Compaq :: 6730s And Mini 2140

Jul 19, 2009

Basically I'm interested to buy an HP Compaq 6730s and a Mini 2140 netbook.

What I'd like to know is if these things will play HD content?

I have a few Matroska encoded videos of which my PIV desktop refuses to play back smoothly. The sound and video are totally out of sync and on my Centrino based laptop I don't even get sound, all be it I am trying to stream these things off an NFS mount via 54Mbps wireless. I am guessing not enough bandwidth is my issue as the connection tops out at round 1.36MB/s x 8 gives round 11Mbps which minus the overhead on the half duplex wireless connection doesn't leave one with much even though the AP is a Cisco ISR based router!

Well that said I'd also like to know why the netbook, the Mini 2140 has not been released in HD guise in the UK? This is so weird that HP would release this everywhere around the world but here!

As a network and UNIX engineer I am generally consoled into things all the time, meaning SSH sessions and serial tty lines, and I am a bit concerned that the 1024x576 res of the Mini isn't going to be enough. Also for use with the odd video and lots of web stuff browsing/email. No no YouTube :-P

The thing is that the Mini would make a great compact tool in the field so I can take it around to different sites, connect up and use it for my purposes, as mentioned but also network sniffing and scanning to identify and debug faults.

On top of that I would like to know finally about the heat dissipated by these machines.

How much or little it is?? In the past I have had 2 Acer Ferrari laptops and a Hi-Grade Notino 12" which all seem to overheat. Currently my laptop is running at 200 degrees F and although I haven't checked the vent of this system I did check one of the Ferraris and very little dust had collected in between the vent and fan area. That's why if these machines run cooler it would be great, baring in mind that they will be running Sun Solaris and Linux as a dual boot which usually tend to take up more cycles then MS and Apple based OS's.

HP/Compaq :: When Will The 1366x768 Display Be Availabile On Mini 2140

Feb 7, 2009

One of the features that attracts me to the HP Mini 2140 is the availability of a 1366x768 display (rather than 1024x576, which is standard- on the 2140 and on almost every other netbook available). But the higher resolution display just shows (Coming Soon) when I click on the Specs for the Mini 2140....

when the high-resolution display will actually be available for ordering on it?

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini 2140 Resolution And 6 Cell Battery

Apr 5, 2009

On the HP site the 2140 is listed to have a higher resolution screen coming soon. Does anyone know when this is? I thought it was supposed to be sometime in February, then March and now the last I read was April 1 but it looks like it's still coming soon.

Also does anyone have the extended 6 cell battery? From pictures it looks like it sticks out at a 90 degree angle to the body. When I saw it I thought it was incredibly dumb. That seems like it would affect portability a lot.

HP/Compaq :: Installing Own SSD In 2140

Feb 12, 2009

Does anyone know if it's relatively easy to install your own SSD into a 2140...I like everything about it except the $575 charge for upgrading the drive to an 80GB SSD.

Having said that I don't need anywhere close to that much storage, even a 16GB would probably be enough for me and Newegg has them for

Dell :: Return ...

May 8, 2009

I just requested refund for my laptop and booked an appointment for the collection on 12-May-09.

I have looked many threads in this forum and everyone said the label of return authorization code has to be printed off and stick it on the box.

But I asked for that thing on the phone and they said I do not need to do this, they told me what all I have to do is just put everything back to the original box and wait for someone to collect it, and then the system will check it for me to give me back the money.

I have made another call to confirm this and she told me the same thing

Dell :: Return Policy

Mar 14, 2010

It seems as if they only refund products that are within the 21 days after the order. But my laptop, specifically the studio 1558, had to be delayed, and I received it after the 21 days. Now I've had this laptop for 5 days and there was at least one random shutdown a day, which seems to be a very common problem to many people with this particular laptop.

Is there a way to refund this laptop?

Or are there exceptions?

They did in fact asked me whether I still wanted to resume the order the laptop, as they were waiting for a piece of hardware about 2-3 weeks after i placed the order; however, this seems like a coincidence or an extremely poor business tactic, as they probably have known about this flaw.

Dell :: Studio Return ?

Apr 30, 2009

I have posted this before, but I am getting really tired of Dell's customer service (after 2 non working units!) and this one was my screw up

The Studio 17 is too bulky and heavy; I wouldnt mind getting a 15 with the same specs or even an inspiron or Vostro-

There are several good deals with Vostros- are there any advantages to the Vostro line?

So How would I go about getting Dell to accept a return of the studio w/o a restocking fee---

Could I just tell them that the bottom and top of the computer get exceedingly hot and the machine randomly turns on and off?

Dell :: Studio 17, 21 Day Return, And HP

Mar 14, 2009

I have been using my new studio 17 for the last three days had several questions that I would appreciate input on. First my MO: Most of my laptop computing is word processing, net surfing, picture stuff, occasional spreadsheet, occasional movie, no gaming. Most of my laptop use is sitting up in bed with the machine on my lap, balanced on my right leg, or set down on the bed to my right side, or sitting in the recliner with the unit on my lap, or on the back deck with unit on my lap. Only travel with the laptop 1-3 times per year (car travel).

I'm coming from a 2001 dell latitude 14" machine which has been stone cold reliable but of course severely outdated. I'm old and not concerned with the style or look of a computer, I have old eyes and need easy to read screens and font sizes. I tend to buy more computer than I need initially and keep it for many years past when people would normally upgrade. I tend to be more concerned with ergonomics, user friendliness, and robustness of design than I am with processor speed, video cards, memory etc. The one exception here is I really like/need a bright clear display.

My studio 17 is configured with the T6400, 4gb ram, backlite keyboard, wled 1440x900 display, ATI HD 3650 etc.

Initial impressions
Good: It is of course much faster than my 2001 dell, especially on boot up and shut down. The clarity and brightness of the display is a beautiful thing and the viewing angles are good as well. I pulled up an instant movie from netflix and it is very impressive, although the movie didn't play fullscreen as there was about an inch of unused screen on either side of the movie. The backlite keyboard is nice.

Uncertain:
- Maybe it is my imagination but the keyboard on this thing seems squishy. Almost like it is uneven and set too low in the chassis. The keys have very little tactile feedback. A number of times now I've been flying along wordprocessing and find that even though I pressed the key the entry was never made.

- There is quite a bit of flex in the screen it seems. I learned real quick to make sure to grasp the screen right in the middle when closing/opening the lid. It's a bit disconcerting to see the dell symbol on the back of the lid distort when the screen flexes as you close the lid if you don't grasp it right in the middle.

- There are no standoffs at the top of the screen to keep it from contacting the palm rests when the lid is closed. Picking the machine up with one hand in the center front as I normally do results in the lid flexing and touching the palm rest in the camera/mic area at the top of the display.

- While there is a boatload of screen real estate, the icons/text are small which is not good at all. Can these be increased in size without loosing any clarity? I need all aspects of the display - icons, text, menus, etc bumped up in size a bit.

- While I like the 17" screen, and I thought the number pad would be nice to have, I really dislike that the it causes the alpha keyboard and corresponding touch pad to be offset to the left of the chassis. The touch pad obviously has to be centered relative to the alpha keyboard for proper word processing and data entry. This is not that big of an issue when the machine is used on the desk but it causes an imbalance when used on the lap. In order to use the machine with keyboard/touchpad centered the whole machine has to be shifted to the right which causes the right side to tip over to the right. In short it makes it very awkward to use this machine on anything other than a desk. In addition, I think compounding this lap unfriendly nature is the whole gigantic hinge design and how deep this laptop is.

I fully understand that this machine is marketed as a "desktop replacement" and maybe I would be better served with a 15" model. What would be really nice though is to have the 17" screen, lose the number pad, and center the alpha keyboard and touchpad in the center of the chassis. This would make laptop computer more user friendly.

Dell :: Return Policy?

Jun 2, 2009

I just got the M1730 last week, but I found a few detects such as lighting problems on my screen when it is pitch black.

The bottom and top parts have light leaking ( I'm guessing thats what you call it ). Also when I move my laptop, i see two circles appearing on my screen (Same effect as if you touched the screen)..

They disappear after like 5 seconds, but it gets annoying seeing them whenever you move your laptop.

Dell :: Possible To Return A PC Just Because Of Poor CS?

Aug 28, 2009

I am aware this is Notebook review but I figure Dell is Dell and it could apply to all Dell branded products.

I ordered a Dell PC 2 weeks ago. It has been 'In Production' for 2 weeks now. I phoned CS today and I was transferred a total 8 times due to no one being able to match my Name with my order number.

I finally get through and they tell me that a part was on back order (i never received any emails about this and no notification on my confirmed order page before I checked out) .....

Dell :: Complex Return?

May 19, 2010

I ordered it on May 10th and shipped May 16th. I was expecting it to take at least another week.

I was hoping that before it went into the shipping stage I could contact my sales rep and replace the single 5870 with crossfire 5870's when they came out.
Lo and behold, the day after my order is passed the line of return, the cards are released.

I ordered another M17x with crossfire cards later that Monday and now that order has an EDD of June 4th.

My predicament, can I open my first M17x and fiddle around with it for a few days to see if a single 5870 is all I need, and then return it if is not as much as i need, without having to pay a restocking fee?

how is HP with their return policy? Have any of you ever had any bad experiences with returning a laptop to them?

Change It :: HP Return Policy

Nov 8, 2009

I am trying to get some basic information on return policies from some different places that sell HP notebooks.

Since I live over three hours driving distance one way from any major electronics store that may carry the HP Envy 15 (such as Best Buy) I am left with the only alternative to see about purchasing a computer online. I'm not completely sure, however, that it will completely fit my needs exactly. So I am trying to find out where I might be able to order an Envy 15 but also have some reassurance that if I do wish to return it for a refund I can do so within a reasonable time.

Sometimes it's hard to tell what places have for their refund policy, especially online. Again, I'd have to be sure that the place offers return for refund and not just return for replacement.

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX16t: Return

Jul 23, 2009

i ordered an HDX16t for college recently, and I realized I didn't order it with the backlit keyboard I wanted.. yeah i was dumb but college is still a month away so when it arrives, would it be free for me to return it ?? i also used a coupon code NBZ2897 which gives $250 off.. so when the laptop comes the coupon will be expired. does that mean i have to pay that extra? or can i just return it and just pay the extra $50 for the backlit keyboard, whether a backlit keyboard is worth all this trouble are welcome too haha i mean i dont gota look at the keyboard when i type but i still think having 1 would be nice

Dell :: Want To Return My Vostro 1510

Apr 11, 2009

I received this dell laptop on 3rd of march 2009 and ever since I got this laptop, my life has been a living hell. I've written about my problems before:

Vostro 1510 - touchpad/keyboard problems

Basically, I've wasted plenty of time chatting with dell representatives and they have already replaced my touchpad (twice), heat sink, fan, motherboard, keyboard in such a short span.

I've tried switching to different operating systems and it hasn't helped me in any way. Now, when I try to contact dell representatives, they tell me that its not a hardware problem since the hardware has already been replaced and so they just give me the same software solutions (reinstall os, reinstall drivers) as before without even listening to my problems. One time this representative even cut off the line. Now what I want to ask is : can i return this laptop now ? I know that my 21 day period is over but my work is really suffering right now because of this laptop.

Dell :: Has .com Changed Return Policy

Apr 29, 2009

I keep reading in this thread about Dell's no questions asked 21 day return policy. Dell.com is stating returns will have a 15% restocking fee in addition to shipping charges.

I'm assuming this does not apply if there is a problem with the system. However, if it's under warranty, won't they just send a tech out instead of accepting the return?

Has anyone completed a return with the last month or so?
If so, can you let us know how it went?

Dell :: Return Policy For Employee

2. Does Dell give 100% money back in this case?

The reason why I want 2 return it is that the employee thru which the system was ordered messed up the upgrades and also cheated me. When I received the system, there were three missing upgrades out of the eight upgrades ordered:

1. I had ordered a Topo Black Colour. I got Jet Black.

2. I had ordered 7200 rpm drive. I got the 5400 one.

3. I had ordered 5300 Wifi Card. I got the 5100 one .....

I dont want or need this though, but he didn't realise that of course, an now i want to send it back for a refund without having to pay delivery & restocking?

if that's applicable. I did email my contact in dell who put the order through, before the 2 parcels were sent out but she didn't get back to me [still hasn't ]

but I am understanding that I can send back the bag no questions and have a full refund as long as it's before 7 days? that is in 2 days time.

Dell :: 1 Year Battery Return For XPS Laptops

Feb 12, 2009

I've had my laptop for under a year and my battery is much worse than when I first got it. I seem to recall reading about some feature of the xps laptops that I may return the battery within 1 year, no questions asked. When I called up they said I would need to call back when I'm in front of the computer. Is anyone aware of the battery return policy for xps laptops?

They told me if there's a defect I could exchange it within a year (afterwards no luck.) I'm a bit worried that they'll say this is just normal use, even though the dell website says battery decline is normal after a year.
