Dell :: How Long Have You Had/will You Keep Your Laptop? (POLL)

Aug 16, 2009

I'm just starting my 5th year with my Inspiron 6000. Bought it in August 2005 for just under $800 out the door.

I was planning on buying a new one but I realized that everything in that price range these days isn't really a huge improvement over what I already have, and since the thing still works, there's really no need to upgrade.

I have had to make a few fixes over the years (upgraded HD, RAM, new keyboard, screen/inverter, battery, top bezel, power jack, power adapter) but at this point it's almost a matter of pride to be able to fix something for $15 or $20 by just buying the part on eBay and maybe spending 30-60 minutes with a screwdriver.

Dell :: POLL: Vista Or XP

Feb 27, 2008

Since vista has come out, I have installed it three times to give it a chance, and all three times I was upset about how slow it seemed, but my new M1710 came with a license for vista ultimate and I just received the install DVD from Dell and was wondering. As of today, a clean install of vista with ALL updates and some tweaking, would it affect my FPS in games enough to notice? Would it help if I upgraded to 4gb? (3.2gb addressable)

Dell :: Poll: GPU Max Temperature

Nov 2, 2008

There was a poll for idle temps, but I am more interested in your values for max temp for the GPU.

Setting: 8 mins of running Rthdribl on a M1330; HWMonitor read-out for max. GPU temp in Celsius.

Mine would be 104C. After another 2mins the GPU clocked down, resulting in "only" 98C.

Dell :: Warranty Poll On Laptops Preliminary

Mar 16, 2008

I took statistics and numerical analysis a LONG time ago in college, and I'm afraid my poll questions will not be as relevant as they could be, or could cross over from one group to another. Who out there has some expert advise? You can either post here or PM me. I will make a thread for each generation (i9300/xpsg2/m170, i9400/m1710, xps 1730, etc). Maybe having the XPS's on their own? I don't want to thin the numbers out too much. These are the poll questions I postulate:

-it's worked fine! (regardless of if you have an active warranty or not)
-some parts are broken but I don't trust dell warranty, prob. end up on ebay searching for some.
-i've returned bad parts and gotten good ones, and now it works
-the computer died and I got a replacement which was better
-the computer died and I got a replacement which was worse
-the computer died and I have yet to get a replacement confirmation (not necessarily in your hands yet)
-i'm out of warranty and SOL

Voices from others will be heard, of course. Like Galileo said, "In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual."

Sony :: Poll: Problems With The TT's Touchpad?

Jun 14, 2009

There have been quite a few posts regarding the TT's touchpad. It would appear that most of the TT owners on the forums have not had an issue with it (myself included), though there are some people who have had problems -- so I thought a poll would hopefully shed light on how widespread the problem is or isn't.

Dell :: How Long For An Exchange From?

Aug 23, 2009

For those of you who have had a faulty laptop and had it exchanged could you let me know how long it takes?

I purchased a Dell Mini 10v from the outlet well over a month ago. It arrived July 14 and was faulty straight out of the box (crackling, hissing noise). It was sent to the depot, returned several days later,

and when I turned it on the same problem was still there. It's some problem with the speakers not working properly. I call Dell again. The laptop was sent to the depot a second time--it just got returned a couple days ago .....

Jan 1, 2010

"Work In Progress" What does this mean & how long will it take?

Dell says:
Work In Progress
If you personalized your computer, it's being prepared for production.If you ordered an accessory, software or ink, your order is being prepared for packing.

Does this mean they are making it? Or does it mean its getting all the stuff (e.g hard drive) to make it?

Dell :: XPS M1530How Long Have You Had It And Has Your 8600M GPU Died Yet

Dec 14, 2009

For all you M1530 owners, how long have you had it for and is the 'defective' GPU still working fine?

For those that had the M1530 or had it replaced, how long did the GPU last before it died?

Also, please mention whether you undervolt/undervolted your CPU and use/used a notebook cooler as I think this would affect the life of it.

Had mine since April '08 and the current motherboard since December '08. Undervolted CPU and notebook cooler. Still working perfectly.

These questions are relevant to my big question here:

XPS M1530 - Keep or Sell?

The poll is just for summaries sake but an actual response with the details would be appreciated. Also, the poll is only for M1530's you bought new. i.e. not refurbished, second hand.
