I'm having to buy a new laptop soon - looking at the XPS - but I don't know when this premium XPS customer service care will subside (which I expect to happen when Dell releases their new solution to getting consumers)
I have a macbook pro from last year Q4 2009, with 2.53 core 2 duo and the 9400M G. If I buy a motherboard of the newest macbook pro with the i5/i7 cores and gt330m, would it work? I mean basically buying the new macbook pro at a very low price?

I just bought a new sony vaio laptop. I wanted to install the newest 9.4 ATI drivers for the gpu. So heres what happened:
- Downloaded newest drivers from ati official site - Went to the uninstall programs section in control panel, closes thing I could find to ati drivers was "Ati catalyst install manager", so i uninstalled it and it uninstalled ati drivers within the process. - Then restarted the laptop - Then installed newest drivers with the catalyst control center. - Restarted laptop - After the restart the highest available resolution was 1400x1050, I couldn't find the ati control centre and can find no evidence of the laptop even recognizing the ATI GPU after the restart.
I've gone through this sequence twice now and each time the drivers haven't been updated properly and the same thing has happened.
I've restored the system so now I have the 8.4 drivers on my gpu but I really can't figure out how to update them,

I just got the new Macbook Pro and its awesome! I was a PC user earlier .However I was wondering whether the Macbook Pro 17 inch ( newest model) memory can be changed, I got the 4 GB RAM and want to upgrade to the 8 GB ram.
While I was almost a 100% certain my next laptop would be the asus ul30jc, I just saw the folowing laptop in a local advertisement and I must say i'm tempted (being a student, I use almost all of my free money on vacation, food and alcohol so every saved € counts):
Compaq Mini 311c Intel Atam N270 (1.6ghz) 1 GB RAM 160 GB HDD Nvidia ION LE (shared memory) Wifi b/g Windows XP home (service pack3) Battery info unknown, though most sites say it has a 6 cell battery. 359€
So I have a few questions. First and most importent of all, I need to know how long the battery will last, if its +7 hours i'm content.
Second, I have no idea what kind of wifi I need, I use that white Belgacom Digital TV Router so perhaps my fellow Belgians can help me on this? When I use system information it says my wifi in my current laptop is A/G/N.
Third, will I be able to install the newest microsoft office programs (I have 2003, 2007 and will most likely buy 2010 aswell) on windows xp home?
Last but not least, will I see a big difference if I upgrade from 1gb of 2gb of ram? I noticed a big difference on my current laptop when I upgraded my ram, but since that hp compac has a very weak processor, it might be pointless since that cpu might bottleneck the effect?
Both me and a friend of mine have Lenovo W540s.Â Everything was working perfectly fine with all of our hardware, until today.Â A BIOS update came out and installed correctly on both of our machines.Â After this update both of our UltraNAV features on the trackpad are all dead.Â After that first restart a message appeared "finding new hardware" and it found a generic mouse on the laptop.Â Now when I try to re-install the UltraNav drivers, it says no hardware found.Â I tried both the drivers on Lenovo.com and the manufacture's website all with no luck. Â How to fix our UltraNav pads?Â
I been working part time in computer service for 2 years now. Most notebook that come in are Dells, while Dell owns only 30% of Ukrainian laptop market. I have seen Dells that literally fall apart while under 3 years of usage. Most low to middle price boxes seem to be build from cheap plastic and 2nd grade parts.
Am I mistaken, is it a local phenomenon? What are your opinions of Dell notebooks?
So for the upcoming school year I purchased an 17' Inspiron notebook (upgraded some components such as graphics card, procceser etc) online on the first of august. I was very surprised when I recieved an email that said the est. ship date was the 17th of august, est. arrival date the 21st! I probably would have just bought a labtop retail at a store somewhere if I had known it would take three weeks for it to arrive!
My question (to those who have purchased dell notebooks in the past or recentely) is whether or not it really takes that long for the notebook to arrive at your doorstep or in fact its not as long. I figure because its summer, maybe they're backed up a bit?
Acer's aspirational laptops have a new Ethos to them now, and it clearly has something to do with entertainment. The newly revealed 18.4-inch 8943G sports a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a true 5.1 surround sound setup, meaning that somewhere within its shell reside five miniature speakers and a sub. Processor options range all the way up to the quad-core Core i7-820QM, which offers 8MB of built-in cache and a 1.73GHz clock speed that cranks all the way to 3.06GHz when required. ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 graphics and up to 1.28TB of storage (2x 640GB) complete the overkill recipe. The 5943G is basically a scaled down version, offering as it does 1366 x 768 resolution across a 15.6-inch display, a 2.1 internal speaker arrangement, and a merely adequate 640GB storage maximum. The rest of the specs are shared, including a 4,800mAh battery, which should perish quicker than you can say "desktop replacement." Pricing and availability have not yet been announced.
my notebook has the optiarc 5500S BD Rom and I've only had it for a couple days. I've tried a few blu rays using quickplay but the playback is a little stuttery, especially when skipping from scene to scene. Overall, playback is fairly smooth but my eyes are really picky and I can tell it's not as smooth and fluid as it would be if I were to watch it on my ps3.
I'm wondering if PowerDVD (blu ray version) would be smoother. What are your experiences with blu ray on your notebooks and what software do you use?
On nVidia's SLI zone, they list the m1730 as "featuring dual GeForce 8800M GTX". Whether or not it'll happen anytime soon is anyone's guess but at least it looks like it's going to happen.
Alienware, Dell, Sager, Eurocom, MALIBAL, Cybersystem, Multirama, Nexoc, and Rock have all worked with Nvidia to squeeze two GeForce 8800M GTX chips into their high-end gaming laptops, and the first systems should be available "soon"
I think Acer just hit a niche market with the Timeline series. No other manufacturer has touched this area before. The first time I saw the specs I knew I wanted one. The price/weight/performance/battery life ratio can not be matched by any notebook on the market. Or am I wrong? What other notebooks are there? Where can I buy a 13.3 inch Acer Timeline in Canada?
I know many people have said they upgraded their ram past the "2gb limit" to 3gb or some even 4gb on a Intel GL960 chipset...but has anyone successfully upgraded their ram above 2gb with the GL960 on a Sony Vaio, or even more specifically the VGN-NR140E, or any VGN model? I'm asking because I want to upgrade past the limit, but I don't want to waste my money if it won't work, and if someone can let me know if it worked on their Sony Vaio (should have similiar BIOS) then I will be a bit more confident on my purchase.
I have a SV Notebook PCG-7D1M which has completely died on me!! I heard somewhere that if a battery is dead or not inserted in a Vaio it will not work at all. Please can someone confirm this for me as at first i thought it was my power supply so bought a new adaptor but it still wont work with or without the battery in. I basically just want to know if it will work just running from the mains?
