Dell :: Buying An E4300

May 30, 2009

I'm interested in buying a good portable notebook and the E4300 is one of the main contenders because of the solid build, good batterly life and its weight and size

So I've been reading many mixed reviews about the latitude e4300 where many people thought it didn't live up to what you would expect from a premium business notebook with a premium price.

Dell :: Buying From Uk

Jan 11, 2009

I was trying to configure a very powerful system (Precision) but didn't want the crappy widescreen monitor, need ultrasharp as it's for graphics work, but there is no option to deselect or select ultrasharp.

Another annoyance was that for some reason it wouldn't let me select a second drive - no incompatibilty message, nothing.

Dell :: Help Buying The XPS 16

Aug 31, 2009

I'm thinking of buying the SXPS 16 from Dell Hong Kong as my bro lives there and he should be able to bring it down within the next two months. Unfortunately the only screen available is:

16.0" Edge to Edge High Definition (720p) LED Display with TrueLife(TM)
Does anyone know the exact resolution of this. I've heard amazing things about the screen but I think this is has less resolution and not RGB?

Is it still worth getting? Will be used primarily for graphics editing, light gaming and Word/Excel.
Thanks for any input.

Dell :: Buying A Monitor

Jul 23, 2007

So I have been looking into something bigger than a 17' (yes i know im getting greedy as far as size) However Im not sure of the quality, performance and other things and was wondering if you guys could fill in the gaps.

Will be used for
-Light gaming, but i definately want a low 'response time'
-Watching movies
-Browsing internet

My main questions are.
-what is a good 'response time'?

Ive seen 2ms, 5ms as the lowest times and im guessing these times are more than reasonable for playin a few games.

-Will a 7900GS be strong enough to handle displaying a resolution of say 1600x1200 or 1920x1200 and play a game or two w/o any issues?

Dell :: Buying A Vostro 3300, Memory And O

May 3, 2010

Im thinking on buying a Vostro 3300 from the Dell website.

Seems as a good lappy for editing text and watching some videos and movies.

How much ram can I add to it? Im planning on buying it with only 2GB and planning to upgrade it to its max. Which I don't know exactly what is.

Also it comes with Intel i3 350 M, any advice on this processor?
The default OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.

Considering the processor, should I upgrade the OS to 64 bit? Does that actually make a difference at all?

Dell :: Need Advice Buying Vostro 1320

Jun 24, 2009

I am intending to buy a Vostro 1320, I will use it for text editing, Internet surfing, occassional photoediting, so I don't have high hardware demands only that computer works smoothly.

There are some things which I dont understand:

1) they offer processors with fsb 800 Mhz and fsb 1066 Mhz, but the RAM memory works on 800 Mhz

I am prepared to pay for little bit better processor but do I have advantage of better CPU when I have slower Ram ?

2) they have also half-height and full-height wireless card,
is it some particular advantage with half-height ?

3) is it worth to buy 256 MB Nvidia instead of onboard Intel X4500MHD graphics card, and as I said my demands on graphics are not so high ?

May 10, 2009

Some guy is selling an E6400 for $750 with 3 year warranty left. It's $300 cheaper than a simliar configuration brand new.

What things should I check for? this will be my first laptop. Of course i'll check to make sure all the parts work, test everything out.

anyway to test if there are overheating issues? build quality issues? can i see if the seller exchanged any parts?

He says he has a service # that i can check with Dell, not sure what this is though.

Dell :: Am I Taking A Big Risk Buying A Used M1330?

Is the GPU meltdown inevitable? Would i be able to avoid this ever happening with the copper mod? It would be for music and multimedia so the cooling set up i read about here sounds like it would handicap the laptop too much.

Dell :: Buying A Inspiron 13" Or A Vostro

Sep 28, 2008

I'm trying to configure a laptop which has 14" 1440x900 display. Would like to get as much discounts as possible. How much is the employee discount? Is it stackable with the coupon codes found on the internet?

Also why isn't the Vostro 14" or inspiron 14" available anymore?

How is the screen on the Inspiron 13" ? I'm keen to buy the 13" but I think it'll be kinda small.

What is Dell's return policy? Just incase I dont like the laptop.

Dell :: Buying A Refurb Precision M4400

Dec 30, 2008

I'm planning on buying a refurb M4400 soon, and I'm wondering if the user community has any input for me. Are there any features I should make sure to get (backlit keyboard is good, I hear)? Are there any features I should be sure to avoid? Are there any problems commonly experienced that I should look out for once I get the system?

I haven't ordered it yet, but so far I think I'm looking at the T9400 cpu, 4GB RAM, FX770M gpu, CCFL WUXGA screen, ~250GB@7200RPM HD (could be 160GB or 320GB, depends on what's available). Up for debate still are 6 vs 9 cell battery, fingerprint reader (none, internal, FIPS), OS (if I can get 64-bit Vista Ultimate that'd be great, otherwise XP Pro w/ Vista Business license).

The intended usage here is software development (mostly Java, some C/C++) and gaming (Far Cry 2, CoD4/5, maybe Crysis?).

Dell :: Buying An XPS 15 Laptop NVidia V. ATI Graphics Card

Mar 13, 2009

I am starting to research 15/-16" laptops and looking at the XPS - for my wife who is a photographer. She currently has an Inspiron 1720 but it's not performing for her so she wants to upgrade.

Plus she still has the PITA issue with Vista where her screen color calibrations are continually lost. I on the other hand have an Inspiron 1520 with an nVidia graphics card and once calibrated, my screen doesn't lose the settings.

So I wanted to get her a laptop with an nVidia card - but looking at the XPSs they all seem to have the ATI graphics card - only the old stock still has the nVidia cards.

Is the ATI comparable or better than the nVidia? Will it retain the calibration settings like the nVidia does? Is dell no longer bundlingg nVidia cards because of the problems I have read about (never had any myself).

Dell :: Experiences Buying A Refurbished/dented Laptop From Outlet

May 19, 2009

I did not know about this Dell Outlet until I signed up here. The prices seem to be much lower than buying a new unit. I have my eye on a Dell M6400 unit..

So my question is, what are your experiences with a refurbished unit? By refurbished, are these units that have been rented out to businesses and returned? Will I be buying a 100% used unit? or does Dell replaces parts inside before selling them etc? Am I taking chances on these units or am I safe in terms of dependability?

Sony :: Buying Top-spec F Series In UK

Apr 28, 2010

I'm in the UK - what is the difference between the VPCF11Z1E/BI and VPCF11X5E? The first one is available on the Sony UK site, and the second the Sony Style site. If I spec up the X5E to the same spec, it's £70 cheaper!

i.e. - i7 720QM, 8GB RAM, 500GB Hard Disk

A few questions though:

I really want the best screen possible. Do these both have it? Is it Adobe RGB?

I need 8GB of RAM - is it cheaper to get it with 4GB and buy the extra 4GB seperately?

Is a 128GB SSD worth the £120 extra over the standard 500gb 7200rpm disk (currently included free)? Is the SSD that Sony include any good, or should I buy a 128GB or 256GB one seperately? Do they have a limited life span?

Finally - is it full of bloatware? Will I need to flatten it and reinstall Windows to get it running well, or is the VAIO stuff worth having? Are the disks for Windows 7 supplied, and are the drivers easy to find?
