Dell :: Experiences With Windows 7 64 Bit RTM

Jul 24, 2009

I have stuck it out with the RC 7100 RC. Got burned out by all the builds,although it was a hell of a lot of fun! I am looking to hear from fellow 1640 users experiences thus far with 7600.

I purchased a few 7's via pre order and am Debating just running the rc until Oct. 22. On the other hand I am very curious to have a go @ the RTM. Let me know how it is going for you.

Dell :: India Any Experiences With Replacement?

May 28, 2009

My Studio 1555 is being replaced because of an overheating issue.I would be glad if someone could post any experience with Dell India regarding replacement.Are they efficient and do they make sure that the new one is problem free?

Also,I read on some other forums about them offering freebies with replacements...like an extended complete cover n stuff...now,now I'm not being greedy but the way I got a screwed up laptop from Dell,it wouldn't hurt to strike a good bargain the second time around

Dell :: Customer Care Experiences ..

Dec 12, 2009

I have had my M1330 (yes the one with the NVIDIA 8400M chip) have had no major problems to date. However, two days ago I had some touchpad issues i.e. a sluggish, unresponsive touchpad so I decided to contact Dell. The experience was really good I go an agent by the name of Mr. Abdul Aleem who was really friendly and provided me with a form to transfer my ownership and then he fixed the issue.

Now earlier this year I contacted Dell about another machine and this wacko was telling me that since I bought the laptop at Best Buy I should go to Best Buy to deal with warranty issues despite the laptop having 1 year basic warranty from Dell.

So I was very pleased with the interaction with Mr. Aleem.

So this a thread to share your experiences with Dell's Customer Care.

Dell :: Any Experiences With The Vostro 1220?

Aug 1, 2009

I am thinking of buying a Vostro 1220 because I now need a portable computer to carry around with me all the time. However, I have only found one review and that wasn't very detailed.

I am particularly concerned about fan noise - I have a 17" Inspiron 9400 at the moment and it doesn't make any noise until it has been on for a long time, but I imagine that a smaller computer may have small heat sinks and therefore need to have the fan running at a higher speed all the time

Dell :: M1730 W/ 8700GT SLI Driver Experiences

Jul 10, 2008

I think it would be nice for us M1730 owners to share information as to wich dirvers you've tried, with what games and what your experiences have been with them?

I'm having a pretty bad headache getting a driver that runs all my games just as well. I'm playing DiRT, Gird, Race07, UT3, BioShock, CS: Source, Quake4, Quake Wars and so far I've tried 173.13's and 167.51's from DELL, 174.82, 174.90 and 177.35 from www.laptopvideo2go.com and I've had mixed results. Sometimes I'm getting games reset SLI mid-game and then reverting to low-power clocks without it returning back unless I either restart the machine or enable/disable SLI or one of the cards in device manager.

But when it's running a game smoothly its FRIGGIN AWESOME! I just want it to be stable.

For the recrod I always uinsintall drivers, install Standard VGA Adapter drivers, boot into safe mode and use driver sweaper to remove all traces of the previous driver before trying the next one.

So whats it gonna be? Anyone else sharing my driver pain?

Mar 25, 2010

So if you have followed my system you know what I have gone through, if not just know that it's in the UPS system making its way back to Dell.

Apple :: Macbook Pro Experiences

May 16, 2010

I'm very interested in the mbp 15 (i7) , mbp 13 and of course the Envy 14.
I've done quite some googling and asking around my macbook pro friends (they mainly used the 2008 or older generations) but I still have some questions that are keeping me away from buying a Macbook pro.

I'm mainly looking at the i7 Macbook pro 15 because of its power.
*and ps. I have read through some of the big threads here already.

You're experiences and insights with OSX and Macbook Pro's would be great.

*For background, I am a college student who will want (in order of importance):
1. Convenience (ease and slickness of use, like gestures to make life faster and easier on the laptop)

2. Game Power (ability to run most games on medium/high settings...like crysis and oblivion)

3. Stability (as a student I can't have the comp crashing especially if papers are due and etc.)..............

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?

Apple :: Review Of The Macbook/MBP - Experiences

Feb 4, 2009

3 defective MBPs and a MB that seemed to be fine but came with a loose latch that isn't sturdy at all, a physical dot on my screen, not a dead pixel and is now also making that weird clicking noise I had on 1-2 or two of my MBPs, I don't feel in the mood of getting it exchanged too, wasted too much time waiting by going through that procedure before without result anyways, I got a warantee and if it breaks down I'll just get it exchanged then.

The build quality of the unibody macbook/pros are really great, the first time I laid my hands on the MBP was a moment of joy, in comparison to the several other notebooks we have and had in my family, this kind of build quality is just unparalleled. The Macbook does not lack anything in build quality in comparison to the MBP, I even feel it may be more sturdy due to its size.

Both of the unibody models feel really portable, I never had any trouble taking them out with me to a friends house or anywhere generally. Though the 0,5kg and the size difference between the two makes the Macbook feel a tad bit more portable. Personally I'd go for the MBP if I needed the performance, and because the screen on the Macbook is just a joke in my point of view.

Performance wise both models perform pretty good, the MBP which is based on the 15" high end configuration obviously feels a lot snappier in graphics intensive applications, processor intensive applications such as fusion and multitasking when you got a great deal of applications running. Though during normal usage, where you use a word processor, listen to music, surf the web, I couldn't really notice much of a difference if at all. You don't really feel much boundaries when using the unibody models........

Sony :: Vaio SR Refurb Experiences & Config

Mar 22, 2009

I'm in the market for a new laptop with a 13-14" display. I've looked at some others (Dell XPS 13, HP DV3510nr, Macbook) but have not been too impressed either with features, aesthetics, or build quality. The XPS 13 has the features, but build quality seems so, so; and it seems that there is some concern over how hot it runs. So, I've now been looking at the Vaio SR. Specifically, an SR 290 refurb. It wasn't quite clear to me what the advantages of ordering the SR390 would be.

So a couple of questions:

1. How are the general experiences with the Sony Outlet Refurbs?

2. SR 290 vs SR 390? I'm not a gamer. Biggest processing challenge will most likely be running photoshop CS3.

3. Any other recommendations based on the specs below?

4. From reading multiple pages of this thread, it seems people are pretty pleased with this notebook.

Apple :: Windows On A Mac - Windows XP Pro SP3 V Windows Vista Ultimate SP2

May 30, 2009

For those that use Windows on your Mac's, which version do you recommend? I'm thinking, what's best for battery life, performance etc..

I have a copy of Windows XP Pro SP3 and Windows Vista Ultimate SP2. I'm tempted to go with XP for simplicity, and the fact that it has equal compatibility and a shed load less intrusive DRM.

Dell Vostro 5460 :: Downgrade From Preinstalled Windows 8 To Windows 7

i have recently purchased a vostro 5460 which comes with windows 8 and not windows 8 pro which appears to be a requirement if i wish to downgrade, as tabled here: [URL] .....

but if i do wish to downgrade, do i have any other options?

I am constantly losing wifi connectivity with this new laptop or having slowed down connectivity with 2 out of 5 bars even from 20 feet away; the pages i try to load constantly jump to loading pages previously loaded, etc. I have an inspiron desktop at home with windows 7 i have used for the past three years which have given me no such problems, so i am finding all this interruptions extremely frustrating.

Dell :: Clean Install Windows 7? Or Windows Xp?

Apr 13, 2010

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...
