should I buy the Dell XPS 1640 (P8600, ATI 3670). I intend to use the Dell XPS 1640 for web surfing, watching movies, and play some light games online. Would my Dell XPS 1640 with ATI 3670 will have these problems like overheating and throttling?
After reading those horrible stories about XPS 1640 like overheatinga and throttling). I am not so sure about buying them.
Image you're using your notebook for things like 3D CAD, photo and video editing and of course for travelling. For my purpose I think the M2400 with its 14,1" monitor should fit perfectly. The perfect combination between mobility and performance.
Now I have to decide between 2 processors. As you know the P8600 isn't available and even Dell couldn't tell me if it will be available in the next weeks.
As you know the M2400 can only be ordered with the following processors:P8600 (2,4 GHz, 25W, 3MB Cache)T9400 (2,53 GHz, 35W, 6MB Cache)
So which one would you choose and why? The price difference is about 100$ (71,4 EUR).
Since the P8600 is a fairly common CPU on the XPS Studio 13/16 I thought this would be worth posting.
Stability was confirmed at each FID with Orthos for 60 minutes. I chose to disable SuperLFM and IDA. Under 100% load, at 2.4GHz the reported CPU temp dropped almost 12 degrees C. Obviously the difference was less at reduced speeds, but still worthwhile.
I do not notice any difference in the way the computer responds or performs, so as far as I am concerned this is free cooling. I was able to get 4hr 15min on the 9-cell battery with screen brightness @ 30% and low CPU demand (IE8 with wifi) so it probably modestly improves battery life too.
how to overclock the P8600 processor but had no good luck, I know I can't overlclock through the BIOS, but I've heard of using programs such as SETFSB, but I don't know how exactly how I can use this program for my processor specifically. Does anyone know how to overclock my processor P8600 (1006 Mhz)
Here is some additional information:
DELL STUDIO XPS 16 Intel Core 2 Duo Processor P8600 : 2.4GHz/1066MHz FSB/3MB Cache 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 Video Card 4GB OF DDR3 RAM
If there is any other information that you need please ask, I would really like to overclock make it to 2.8 Ghz or
In looking to pick up a laptop and have it in my hands by late next week, I found that I had to go with the 2.26 GHz processor from the P-series. I was hoping for 2.4 GHz or better.
The reason I was willing to do so was that the notebook is coming equipped with an OCZ Vertex SSD at 120 GB.
My take is that the hard drive is still the bottleneck, so a mere 140 MHz difference in the presence of an SSD isn't going to be felt, and that a 2.4 GHz processor + SSD isn't going to really be snappier compared to a 2.26 GHz one with an SSD for most things.

I have Inspiron 15R 5520 running windows 7 my webcam works fine with skype and msn but i cant access it to take photos and videos who i can do this do i need a special software or my laptop can do it just fine ....
Whenever I play HD videos in youtube, they lag a lot on my dv5t. The lagging is even more obvious when it's full screen. I noticed that everytime I play a HD video from youtube, my CPU usage shoots up to more than 90%. Does anyone else have this problem? My brand new dv5t has a 526 MB GPU, 2.4GHz CPU and 3 gig of RAM. I do have quite a slow internet connection though. But I let the video load completely every time before I play it, I don't see the internet connection is the reason for my problem. And why such high CPU usage?
I tried to go to iMovie tonight to edit some videos, but when I went to import the video, it wouldn't import them. All it did was say "importing video," then it would say "processing video," and then just quit. It only attempts to import a video for about 15 seconds, then stops.
As i am interested in getting the Envy maybe like other people? i was wondering if some of you lucky people that already have the Envy, would mind sharing some Screens (with FPS) as well as some videos of some of the games, it would be nice to know what the settings are as well
I know there are benchmarks for it but i want in GAME screens and videos benchies like 3d Marks and the like dont interest me - ONLY actual in game performance does
