Thinking about getting the 14z and I know the 9400m isn't the best graphics card, but I noticed the memory is 1000mhz+ on the 14z which leads me to believe the 14z probably can handle games quite well since the 9400 uses that memory.
Can it handle Left 4 Dead or World in Conflict on medium well? Any users with experience or could tell me the frames per second they are getting would be awesome.
I really don't want to move up to the 15inch model and get the ATI 4570 which will suck up battery life and is bulkier.
so ive got a 1640xps, and it cant handle 1080p for .. im trying to watch Life E01 BluRay BBC 1080p x264 H@M i get nothing but lags/freezes this shouldnt be happening.. im using VLC to play it. nothing else is open when i play it, i have laptop set to high performance and its plugged in. all drivers are newest to my knowledge.
Pretty much the title. I know there are 4GB single laptop ram sticks out there. If the M1330 is running a 64 bit OS (such as Vista x64 or XP x64), can I put in two 4GB sticks and will they be recognised?
My alienware computer could handle any game no problem a week ago or so but now every game i play is extremely choppy and the frame rate is around 10 on most games. Is there any reason for this or anything i can do to fix it? I've tryed restoring my computer to its factory state and i have updated everything in windows update. I have also got rid of unwanted start programs in msconfig and I have also used task manager to clear any processes that i do not need running. It also seems that my computer usage is around 80% or more when playing a game now and maybe it gets to 100% and then lags?
A key ? for me in purchasing a new machine is how to arrange 2 accessories: DVD player and a 2nd drive (primary drive would be an SSD).
From what I understand, I cannot swap out a HDD and DVD in the ultrabay--if going with a second HDD, the HDD is permanently installed. This implies that you make the pre purchase decision to either have a HDD or DVD player connected by USB and the other in the ultrabay.
Would one opt to have the HDD in the ultrabay due to increased data throughput vs. a USB 3x port?
Im interested in purchasing a Vaio Y notebook, but considering its processor being only 1.3ghz, and having integrated graphics, im wondering if it will perform sluggish during heavy usage. I do not do any gaming, but i do Heavy web surfing (open lots of tabs at once), and watch HD video online (Hulu, Youtube etc). Also, i convert many video files for my iPod, and download many videos, and audio through the internet as well. could anyone comment on how would this perform during these types of uses?
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?
I've been looking a getting a Dell Mini 9 or 12 and reading as much as I can. One thing that comes through over and over again is that the Mini 9 is just about built to be hacked and upgraded while the Mini 12 is not.
RAM upgrade Mini 9 is easy bring to 2GB with inexpensive RAM Mini 12 has1 GB RAM soldered to the motherboard and is not upgradeable.
Drives Mini 9 uses SSD. SSD drive replaceable with even larger faster SSD drives. Mini 12 has 4200 rpm hard drive.
Has anyone actually tried to solder a PCI-E slot into a 10v? I know it can/has been done on the 9, but has anyone tried the 10v?
The reason i ask is because of the Broadcom Crystal HD Accelerator which helps play streaming hd,i am sure there probably isn't or one of you guys would have already tried this but it never hurts to ask.
Is it possible to install a 4gb module into the mini, i already know only 64 bit xp can recognize the total 4 gb but is it possible to just install a 4 gb stick and xp will only recognize 3 gb? also how about the bus speed, is it okay to use a 667 bus over the 533 and will the system recognize it if i use the 667 over the 533, i find the ram sticks are cheaper for the 667,
I got a 4gb Mini 9 with Ubuntu and love the thing to death, but right from the beginning it would always stutter when I was on the internet. It happened a lot more when I was looking at flash things (games, youtube, ect), but even when I was scrolling through a forum it would just stop... and then pick up again but scroll all the way down if I was scrolling (it would catch up).
Maybe it's the RAM since ojly had 512mb. So I ordered 2gb (which i wanted anyway), but this didn't help at all.
Then I though, hmm, maybe it's Ubuntu (Ive heard that Adobe has bad Linux support) so I installed XP and honestly I like it more than Ubuntu, but anyway... yeah it's still stuttering, although maybe less Ican't really tell though.
Is this just something I have to live with? Are all of yours doing this? Or is this a bad SSD or maybe a faulty laptop in general?
I really want to get this fixed as I LOVE the thing so much and just want to have this fixed.
Note: This is only happening with a browser open as far as I can tell. I ran Eclipse and was coding for a over 15 hours since I got it and it didn't stutter once when I was doing this. This is both when I am wired at school, using the school's wireless, or at home using our internet (wired and wireless)
I just ordered a Mini 9. It was $229 and I couldn't resist. Only thing is, it has Ubuntu.
I haven't a clue how to run Ubuntu. It was suggested to wipe the SSD drive and re-install Ubuntu fresh and get rid of the crapware. I checked Dells, driver and download page and all the drivers are for Windows XP. Nothing is listed for Ubuntu.
