Dell :: HP Mini 311 Or Latitude Z11

Oct 31, 2009

I am not sure if I am in the exact location to post a thread but I need an advice since I am getting a 11.6 netbook.

I am debating whether I should get HP Mini 311 or Dell Inspiron 11z. I am located in Canada so we don't have all the models that they sell in United States.

Feb 5, 2010

The D610 comes with an 11G Mini PCI card with 2 antenna connections. 11N cards have 3 antenna connections. Can I replace the 11G card with an 11N and just connect the 2 antenna wires that are present?

Dell :: Mini 9 And Mini 12 Prices Lowered

Jan 16, 2009

For anyone waiting to buy a Mini 9 or Mini 12, the price of the Mini 9 is now $299 and the Mini 12 is $399.

I think this is going to make the Mini 12 a much better offering for those that might need a little bit more screen and hard drive.

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini 2140 Vs Mini 1000 (10" Model)

Jan 21, 2009

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?

Dell :: Why 's Mini 9 Seems Cooler Than Mini 12

Jan 31, 2009

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.

Mini 9 uses SSD. SSD drive replaceable with even larger faster SSD drives.
Mini 12 has 4200 rpm hard drive.

Dell :: Latitude D630 Vs Latitude E6400

Jun 19, 2009

The price of 2nd user Latitude D630's seems to be holding up quite well in the UK. Does this indicate that it is still a popular machine and favoured over the E6400?

I briefly checked out an E6400 the other day and for a choice between machines of approximately similar spec I would opt for the D630 rather than the newer E6400.

I would be interested in opinions from users who have experience with both models.

Dell :: Latitude On ECM As Compared To Latitude On FLASH

May 27, 2010

We are looking at getting some Latitude E4310 systems. Since fast boot up to access the web is important, we see that the Latitude On FLASH option is required.

The downside is that Dell will not install this along with the WiMax card option. They have a combo WiFi and WiMax card, but it can not be installed with the FLASH option.

They also list Latitude On ECM as an option instead of On FLASH. The ECM runs $149 more. With ECM, the system can then have the WiMax card which would be nice.

The people at Dell have not been able to provide a good explanation on what the ECM option does. There is a write up on the FLASH option, but not a good one on ECM. Does anyone know what the ECM does differently than the FLASH?

Key points of the FLASH option are (we need these functions):
Boot Fast, 8-10 seconds
Wi-Fi and LAN 10/100/1000
Web access via browser Firefox Browser
Supports Java and Adobe Flash
Read Microsoft Office
Edit Microsoft Office 2000

Dell :: Latitude D630/ Latitude E6500

Jun 21, 2009

I've got a choice at the moment between two latitudes:

1) Dell Latitude D630: 2.2ghz C2D, 3Gb RAM, 120gb HDD, dvd/cdrw drive, vista, nvidia Quaddro GFX

2) Dell Latitude E6500: 2.26ghz C2D, 3Gb RAM, 80gb HDD, DVDRW, Vista,

Which do you reckon i ought to go for between the two?

The laptop will be used primarily between home and university, so will be taken between the two places in my shoulder messenger bag, so will probably take a few bumps

Dell :: Mini 9 What Do You Use Yours For?

Mar 18, 2009

I've been eyeing the Mini 9 for a while, but really can't find a good justification for pulling the trigger on one.

I was wondering what other people use theirs for? Can it handle a Power Point presentation? Does it have enough entertainment value to keep you from getting bored on a long flight?

Dell :: Mini 10v PCI-E

Oct 19, 2009

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.

Dell :: Mini 9 Stuttering

Apr 12, 2009

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)

Dell :: Mini 9 Dead?

May 29, 2009

I just went on the Dell website and I think that they stopped producing the Mini 9. I suppose that the Mini 10v has replaced it now...

If I'm not mistaken, that's the first netbook to die. (apart from the never good cloudbook and first gen eee's)

I always thought that system was a cute little one. I was attracted to it for some reason. I'm sorry to see it go. I wish they offered more HDD / SSD space though.

Dell :: Inspiron Mini 9

Mar 19, 2009

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.

Dell :: Cannot Charge My Mini 9...

Sep 28, 2009

I received a new in box (sealed) Dell Mini 9 as part of a promotion. I get home and plug the beast in to find that it does not charge the battery at all,

I have tried reseating the battery but to no avail. Also if I plug the computer in a certain way it does not power on, I have to remove the plug and then plug it back in.

So to recap, the battery does not charge, the light does not come on and sometimes I have to plug the power plug in several times to get it to turn on.

Before I call Dell support should I mention anything about receiving this Mini 9 for free or does it not matter?

According to the website I have around 187 days left on the 1 year warranty.

I'd love to throw Windows 7 on there somehow (torrent it onto a thumbdrive maybe).
