Apple :: How Long-term Durable Is A MBP Relative To Other Business Class Laptops

Jan 9, 2010

How long-term durable is a MBP relative to other business class laptops like Thinkpads/Latitudes/Elitebooks?

I'm concerned that Apple's extremely short definition of (planned) obsolescence might be reflected in their product design and manufacturing... I mean, it's not uncommon to expect to get 5 years of use out of a Thinkpad, but I think I'd get weird stares if I told people I expected to use an MBP for 5 years

Dell :: Declined My Credit Card- Difficulties Buying From Business When Not Actually Registered As A Business

Nov 27, 2008

I was attempting to buy a Dell Vostro 1510 yesterday, but Dell sent me an email saying they have declined my debit card due to incorrect details. Apparently this is something they've done to quite a few people.

It may be due to my having to supply a company name because I was buying through Dell business, and them expecting the company name I gave to be part of my official debit card address, which it is obviously not. I don't have an officially registered business.

In any case they are not being very helpful about it. I updated my details on my account on the website and removed my 'company' name and have asked them to try and redo the payment, but so far getting no response. I'm considering phoning them but I doubt that they will understand what I'm talking about and of course I will have to deal with the tricky aspect of my not really being a business, but ordering through dell business.

I'm concerned that they will ask me to repeat my order now that the special offer on the laptop is expired.

Dell :: Next Business Day Delivery

May 26, 2009

So my Dell XPS M1730 finally got shipped this morning! (Yay). The thing is the dell person expedited my order and gave me free next business day delivery.

Since it got shipped today, shouldn't it come tomorrow (Hence the name next business day)? The dell estimated delivery date says the 29th ( Which I won't be home on )

Dell :: Getting Out Of The High End Business

Sep 24, 2009

i have noticed on the dell site that they have replaced their high end systems with alienware...what a laughter for such a large company...cannot dell make there own systems anymore...even the high end desktops are being replaced with

alienware...its like chevy replacing there impala with a buick...bad move. lot of things dell had been doing lately that is non -consumer....sort of got to the point where i don,t look at the dells anymore...

so many notebooks that are non- amd,s cpu anymore, no doubt intels are a bit faster in the desktop., but amds would be a nice second choice,,,,and they are not that much slower.

lot of bad decisions by the top brass at dell...when i buy a system,,,i want some configuration a notebook, i usually want nivida, because i like to mess with linux...doens,t dell understand things like this...i don,t think they even think about it.

Dell :: E6500: Vista Business 64-bit

Feb 10, 2009

I asked Dell Tech Support to send me the install media for Vista Business 64-bit for my E6500. They said that since my System Type is "X86-based PC," I won't be able to run 64-bit. Is there no workaround? Is that really true? My refurb laptop came with XP Pro installed as a downgrade from Vista Business 32-bit. It has a T9600 processor. Does anyone have experience installing Vista Business 64-bit on a laptop like mine?

Dell :: E6400 And Business Support

Feb 16, 2009

i wanted to buy a refurbished e6400 from the outlet and wanted to know how does the dedicated graphics card on it run? the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M With PC-Card. also how is the customer service and do they charge a restocking fee for the business side and do they pay for the shipping back to them?

also how is the build quality of them? are they that great compared to a lenovo y530/550, cuz i like the design of the ideapads but there not as reliable as the thinkpads.

also does dell usually have like free shipping or discounts for the business outlet cuz i know they did for home.

and the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD With Express Card or like the ones WITH PC-CARD are they much different from the regular 4500mhd or x4500?

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Battery Business

Nov 6, 2009

But all the batteries I find online say they are only 11.1v?? So is there a wrong battery in here or are battery sellers just faking buyers out by upping their advertised Wh/Ah by listing a lower than actual voltage?

This is a common practice one sees all the time in RV battery manufacturer ratings - but a 3.7 volt difference is a lot if the system requires 14.8 to operate and it's only getting 11.1.

It certainly isn't a bargain to get "higher Wh/Ah" by starving the system's voltage because then all your getting is sluggish/strained performance for a longer period of time, and if they put out the required voltage than sellers are lying about the actual caqpacity...

Dell :: E1705 + Next Business Day / Nights And Weekends

Mar 14, 2008

About a month after I purchased my E1705 I received a call from Dell trying to sell me an extended warranty. I gave my normal 'not interested' response and they came back with a really good deal for a 4-year Next Business Day + Nights and Weekends extended warranty. I'm now covered until 2010, assuming I'm still using the NB by then.

I ran into a problem with the NB on Wednesday AM (Eastern US) and called them around 10:30. The system would briefly light the power and disk leds and then immediately shut off (about 1/3 second of time total). I went through about 45 minutes of troubleshooting before they decided that they need to dispatch a tech. During the troubleshooting they had me remove HD, memory, WiFi and CD-ROM and went through various combinations along with a 'hold the power button down for 30 seconds'.

The tech showed up Thursday PM and swapped the motherboard but the problem persisted. Because he only had the motherboard as a spare he had to call in and request a graphics card and processor sub-assembly. He told me he would be in on Friday by noon and that I would be his first appointment.

Today (Friday) I checked around 3:00 PM and the tech hadn't arrived. I called the dispatch number and they told me that the parts hadn't been shipped from Dell. I then called Dell and they told me that the graphics card (6800) was on backorder and that it would probably be another 2-3 business days but they couldn't confirm.

Am I incorrect in thinking that purchasing a 'Next Business Day / Nights and Weekends' warranty should get you a next day repair? Right now I'm looking at a next WEEK repair. After speaking with Dell it appears that next day applies to each individual step in the elimination process and that all bets are off if they don't have the part stocked.

Dell :: E6400 BSOD 0x00008086 Vista Business

Feb 10, 2009

I just got my e6400 and the first thing I see when I boot is this stoopid BSOD, "a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer"

I have vista ultimate. I went into the bios and everything seems ok. I fear a memory problem. I am running the diagnostic tests but I don't have much hope on them.

Dell :: Ireland10% Price Increase On Small Business Site

Jan 12, 2009

I may be wrong but it looks like dell ireland have increased all the prices in their small business site by 10%! The base prices are the same but upgrading anything is now 10% more expensive.

Just from looking at precision laptops.

Upgrade to 64bit os was 50 euro, now 55 euro.

Component example, yesterday it cost 440 euro to update the graphics card on a m6400 from a FX2700M to a FX3700M, today it costs 490 for the same upgrade

Sony :: Anyone Using Vaio FW Series In Business Environment

Mar 12, 2009

Have Vaio K23, P4 2.8GHz, .5 GB RAM, 40 GB HDD, 15.25" screen. Like it alot and it has served me well for many years. Time to upgrade due to speed and need for more memory. Will not give up screen size due to sight problems.

Have spec'd new FW 390 w/Core 2 Duo P8600 processor @ 2.4GHz, 2 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD and 16.5" screen, direct from Sony at $939. Seems reasonable given the pricing I see on Ebay for comparable FW's, both new and refurbs.

Does anyone use their FW for business app's? I am told this is primarily a MultiMedia box. I will use it only for business purposes and could care less about Blue Ray, gaming, video, etc.. I only occasioanlly require mobility so size/weight do not matter but I do not want clutter of a desktop all over my desk top!

Sony :: Installing Win 7 On Z With XP Business Using Vista Upgrade DVD

Apr 7, 2010

I have an Upgrade dvd Vista business to Win 7 that I received for my z790. Finally got around to install Win 7 and seems like I will need to install Vista first to be able to use the upgrade DVD. Any workaround?

My secondary objective is to install new SSD.The way I see it now:

1. Ghost XP on SSD

2. Install Vista on SSD

3. Install Win 7 on SSD

Is there an easier way to do it? Any more pitfalls to avaoid? Thanks!

the only Win 7 key that I have is the upgrade Vista to Win 7. Am I correct that retail/all versions install Win 7 disk will not let me use this key?

Acer :: Touchpad/Keyboard Dead After SP1 Update On Vista Business

Nov 19, 2008

I have an ACER Aspire 5670. Recently i installed windows vista business.

From the day i installed vista my battery appears to be broken.

Ok let's say battery cells were destroyed (Fedora installed on the same system report that battery may be dammaged)-So it may be destroyed in a couple of hours.

The second weird thing is that it persists not to recognize one device. In the device manager it has a hardware ID: ACPISMCB000

Third weird story. Today my notebook prompted that there was SP1 update available. I installed it (in 3 phases - 2together at shutdown and 1 after restart)

After SP update my keyboard stopped working - same thing with touchpad. I uninstalled SP1, uninstalled synaptics driver and re-installed it - same thing.

In a forum somewhere i read that battery causes these problems. I took battery off and now i am writing this message from my notebook's keybord ... touchpad still dead...

both keyboard and touchpad work perfectly in Fedora 9 and that usb mouse/keyboard work perfect too in Vista.

Sony :: NOISY Hard DriveVGN-BZ12XN With Vista Business

Mar 12, 2009

The Hard Drive LED light on my Sony Vaio keeps blinking EVERY SECOND. It's constantly writing. Half the time it's still totally silent, but every few minutes the hard drive will start spinning and writing like CRAZY. Like, I can't help but notice it and it disrupts my work. It's too noisy and the case is vibrating like I'm doing some heavy defrag process, even though I'm just reading online. My high-end new Vaio is noisier than my low-end 4 years old Toshiba. I mean, ?

I have read all the threads on the net and so far I've tried to disable:

Windows index
Windows defender
Windows search
Windows defrag
System Restore
I have uninstalled google desktop.
All Vista updates are installed.

I've checked the disk health, it's fine. Also no virus. No torrents running.

Nothing has helped.

Disabling Index and Superfetch seems to do the trick for most people having this problem but not for me.

This could be a specific Vista Business issue - maybe it has an extra "feature"?
