Dell :: Get An XPS16 With An I7 AND BluRay?

Dec 19, 2009

It looks like you can build an XPS16 in any of ten million ways, but this is one combination I haven't found.

Does it exist?

And to those with experience with the XPS16 and the XPS13, is the added size and weight of the 16 noticeable?

Dell :: XPS16 SLot-load Bluray CA10N

Jun 26, 2009

Does anyone have any information or updated drivers for this drive. The only Blueray drive listed on Dells driver page is the BC-5600S.

The laptop is only 2 months old. Is this a newer drive or is the 5600 the replacement.

I am not happy with the performance of the drive so far, blueray movies sometimes stop while it searches the disk, and I am yet to successfully burn a Dual-layer disk (verbatim).

Dell :: Is XPS16 Right For Me?

Apr 23, 2010

In the next couple of months, I'm considering buying a xps16 (hopefully one with a radeon 5xxx by then). It's purpose is to play Starcraft II at high settings and Diablo III (if it ever comes out) + as my main pc replacement. I just have a few questions.

1) How is the build quality of the XPS16?
I want a laptop that can last at least 5 years (not gaming-wise, obviously). I haven't seen it in person yet but I've seen the Studio 15 and it seems kind of solid.

2) Is there a heat issue?
The xps16 will be an i5 and I do plan to get a notebook cooler. I skim through the forum and on the net, my impression is that some people seem to say it's hot ( but not too hot? ) and the lcd screen turns yellow from the vents?

3) How is the RGBled screen? Is it worth getting?
I read about the throttle issues and that you need to configure the settings. My current monitor is 17" and 1280x1024 and I"m slightly worried that I might have to squint a little to see 1080p on a smaller screen. Also, I'm worried if the laptop's heat output might ruin the screen. Then again, I read that it is really the best thing since sliced bread.

Thank you all for your input. I'm also considering the Asus G51, if the xps doesn't work out.

Dell :: Can I Upgrade The RAM On The Xps16 By Myself

Jul 7, 2009

I know it is extremely superfluous but I want 8gb ram! However, it cost $765 more to go from 4GB to 8GB on the Dell website. I heard it is cheaper to just buy RAM yourself and to do it yourself. If possible to do, I am planning on buying 4GB RAM installed on the XPS16 when I customize, and separately buy 4GB RAM separately install myself. This is doable correct?

questions:

1) Is it easy to do?

2) If I finally end up adding the extra 4 GB, will it work just the same as if I originally bought 8GB from dell.

3) Can you link me to some cheap 4GB RAM that is 100% compatible with the XPS16.

Dell :: Clean Under The Keyboard On An XPS16?

Mar 3, 2010

I've been wanting to clean any residue that's built up under the keyboard the past few months: dust, hair, crumbs, whatever else that may have slipped by despite how careful I try to be with letting debris in. A friend that cleaned my old Toshiba would 'pop' the keys out, but that ended up breaking/loosening some hinges later on, and I would prefer not to have send his laptop to Dell for such a silly reason.

Is there any 'easy' way to this? I'm assuming the safest way would be to unscrew the back and locate the area beneath the keyboard?

Dell :: Why Does My XPS16 Have Two Headphone Jacks?

Apr 28, 2010

When only one works at a time?

I tried to watch a movie with a friend yesterday, and we had to share a single pair of headphones.

Why have two headphone jacks? Am I missing something?

How do I get both headphone jacks to be active at once?

With the track record of this computer, I wouldn't be surprised if it was something wrong. 1 screen, two keyboards, a palm rest, and a DVD drive have been replaced already... all within a month.

Dell :: My Studio XPS16 Review

Sep 23, 2009

So I got it and let me tell you, what a machine. couldn't be any happier. seriously fast and very nice and stable so far.


a few positive and negative points to those shopping for one.

A. RGB LED screen is unfreaking real, colors like I've never seen before from a computer. well worth the premium but there are 2 drawbacks.

1.whites are not really that pure in comparison to other screens (you get used to it, as the trade off is well worth it)

2.the resolution is a little high for 16". Catch myself squinting a little from a slight distance. (the 2 finger pinch zoom gesture completely fixes this slight nuisance)

Dell :: Studio XPS16 RAM Upgrade

Jun 27, 2009

I am planning to buy S XPS 16 next week, wanted your suggestion/comments on the below:

The base model comes with 4 GB RAM. Upgrading to 6 GB costs around $360.

I was planning to add more RAM later but couldn't find cheap 3GB RAM stick pair. I am not sure whether this laptop has more than 2 RAM slots, so thought that I would need two 3 GB sticks to make 6 GB RAM.

Do any of you know how I can upgrade the RAM to 6 GB myself? Any links for cheap RAM compatible with this laptop?

Dell :: Studio XPS16 With DDR3

Jun 12, 2009

what advantages would I have going with the Dell Studio XPS16 with DDR3 ram over an HP with DDR2 ram? I have read a bunch of very technical stuff on here which unfortunately I don't really understand.

I plan on having this computer for about 4 years hopefully. If I get DDR2 will it be outdated in the very near future? Will I benefit myself by getting the DDR3?

Dell :: Safest Cooling Pad/fan/whatever For The XPS16

Jul 12, 2009

I am waiting for my XPS to come and I want to know what is the best cooling device I can get on it. The reason I mentioned "safest" is because one person I know said sometimes it can be harmful to the laptop(I have no idea how true that is).

Dell :: Something Is Very Wrong With My Xps16. How Do I Restore?

Oct 14, 2009

I was in the middle of watching a show on hulu when the computer suddenly got really slow for no apparent reason. I tried closing apps but it didn't help. Being very impatient I held the power button down to turn it off.

When I turned it back on the hard drive instantly started working non stop (HDD light on solid. not blinking) and it took forever to load windows. The HDD is on constantly now and the performance is terrible

Dell :: I Know XPS16 Isn't A 'gaming' Laptop, But How Bad/good Is It?

Jul 3, 2009

Can it still play all the new games and the games that will come out in the next few years at a good resolution and framerate? What about 3d?

Also, this might be a stupid question, but hey, you never know until you ask: the XPS16 excels as a "media" laptop, what does that exactly mean?

Also, XPS has the best available screen on a laptop currently right? If so, doesn't/should that help it out in the gaming category?

Finally, I am considering the XPS16, or the Macbook Pro 17'. Which has better display and can someone list the pros and cons of each?

Dell :: I Really Want The XPS16 But Is It Really Worth It If It Heats Up Exorbintantly

Jul 4, 2009

I will be using my future laptop as a desktop replacement, meaning I will be using it a lot(games and movies especially). If it heats up a lot, not only is it uncomfortable, but it can also be deleterious to the machine and can even be dangerous. Plus, I want to customize it to almost its maximum power.

So if it heats up as much as people say it does, is it worth it?

Dell :: XPS 16 (Bluray And Memory)...

Apr 10, 2010

I have been hearing that the read/playback performance of the bluray drive on this laptop is terrible. Some say that it stutters all the way through an entire movie and it is very loud. Is this true? My second question is about the $375 charge for upgrading from 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM. Is it overpriced? Also, how easy is it to upgrade the RAM on the XPS 16?

Dell :: Hitch Pitch Nosing Emitting From XPS16

So far I've eliminated the possibilities of it being AC/battery, screen brightness, sound or fan(i think) related.

Dell :: UJ-225b Bluray In M1710

Apr 11, 2008

Was looking at Panasonic UJ-225B as a blu-ray writer drive for an upgrade of the DVD writer in my xps m1710. It is a slot loading drive and runs at x2 BD-R writing speeds.

Ridiculously expensive at the moment here in the UK (325+VAT), so I have to be sure that it would fit/work OK in the Dell notebook before I shell out for it.

Has anyone got this drive fitted in the xps m1710?

I bought my M1530 a year ago with the DVD/CD drive... and I would like to change the DVD for an BluRay drive... but READ only... is that possible ?; I know about the BD Burner one but it's too expensive for me...

I would like to pay around 200$ only not 500$ lol, I don't need a burner right now... the blank BD are still too expensive.

Could I take 1 BluRay slot drive on eBay (or order 1 somehow at Dell ?) and put it in ?
