NEW DELL STUDIO 14z LAPTOP PERFECT POWERHOUSE FOR ONLINE GENERATION
· Thin, cool design for those who download media from online
· Powerful, mobile entertainment system combines HD resolution screen with great audio and 500GB1 hard drive option
ROUND ROCK, Texas, May 28, 2009 – For the generation that has grown up with the Internet and can find just about anything online, the new Dell Studio 14z laptop makes it easy to carry their digital world with them. Designed for students and others on the go who demand the perfect balance of mobility and performance, the Studio 14z is a homework-busting system by day and an entertainment powerhouse by night.
It features a svelte design and a huge 500GB1 hard drive option that can store up to 125,000 songs, 142,000 photos or 133 DVD quality movies2. The Studio 14z allows people to watch their favorite movies and TV shows, listen to streaming music with friends, store a vast MP3 collection and socially network from just about anywhere3.
The Studio 14z is the industry's first consumer laptop available with FailSafe™ theft prevention. This option helps protect personal data should the laptop go missing or be stolen. With Failsafe engaged, owners can track network information and the ISP location of the laptop when it connects to the Internet, and get help to remotely erase selected files and render the laptop unusable until the rightful owner unlocks it.
"Young people have grown up with the Internet and can find almost everything they need online." said Michael Tatelman, vice president of Dell's global consumer sales and marketing. "They want a slim, easy-to-carry laptop and like the choice of a larger hard drive over an optical drive. The Studio 14z has the storage and speed that most people need, and it comes with color options that let them truly express who they are."
The Studio 14z comes in six colors: Black Chain Link, Midnight Blue, Spring Green, Plum Purple, Ruby Red and Promise Pink (U.S. only). Dell will donate $5 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® from the purchase of each Promise Pink laptop.
The new laptop also comes with Dell Remote Access4; the optional premium version allows people to access content via their home network of personal computing devices including desktops, laptops, ultra-mobile devices, smart phones and web cameras.
Priced from $649 U.S., the Studio 14z is available now online and over the phone in the U.S. and Canada.

Edit to the above (as requested by Ibrahim) 10/15/09...Peep's this really should clear up any confusion.!! Thanks Ibrahim : "Dell is having some issues with their invoices, particularly with monitor choice. If you ordered the RGBLED and it says WLED, don't worry: you still have the RGBLED, it is just marked incorrectly. Some users who ordered the RGBLED have these part numbers:
Do not post in this thread until you ACTUALLY take deliver of XPS 1645 I7. Since the other thread has been destroyed by the production fiasco, we will reserve this thread for reviews, questions, etc about the ACTUAL machine...
I got my E6500 a few days ago. I played it around for a few days. Now, I try to start this thread another way. Instaed of writing a post giving my own mpressions, please ask questions and I try to answer. Like this I guess it will be more helpful to you guys. I list the main spec here:

I found that we don't have an owner's thread for Acer's latest Gemstone Blue notebook, the 8930G! I got the laptop today and it is a beaut! I got the 6243 model with BluRay.
If anyone here has tweaked it or has some useful tips, post it here! I'm pretty novice in regards to notebooks so it would help me just as much as other members! A quick guide to what to install and uninstall would be greatly appreciated. Also appropriate drivers would be beneficial.
If I'm too new to this board to post an owner's lounge, my apologies.

Just thought I'd try and get a thread going specifically for the Unibody 15". Currently there is only the late 2008 Unibody edition, but I guess in the future we can compile information on newer releases.
I'm hoping we can share all kinds of information regarding this wonderful machine, and that this is a place to ask specific questions, compare feedback, or give tips to users and prospective buyers alike. Feel free to post your questions and/or advice, or failing that, just give a shout out if you're a proud owner...
I was wondering who else out there has a dv6, which model and what you think of it!
I've had my dv6 for a day now, specs in my sig. I've not had a lot of brand new laptops, actually only one before this and few powerful ones, but so far I am very impressed.
I have a couple of things in my device manager that are unknown devices since i installed RC, I have installed the card reader, it's not bluetooth or a tv tuner, does anyone have any idea what it could be? Everything I can think of is installed and working.
I love the design, the white lights, touchpad button and the other buttons, I love the keyboard and touchpad and the lit up HP logo on the top of the lid. The only thing I don't like so far is the headphone/mic jacks are on the front. Otherwise top marks to HP! I can't believe how solid it feels
I made this thread for the future release of HP's new diagonally one inch HD 320x180 screen notebook. Being smaller than an IPod Nano, HP will have accomplished nothing. Well, it would be a high tech paper weight. what do you all think about the various sizes of the newer HP notebooks? Are they all really necessary?
I created this thread with the intention of grouping all who have, or in the process, or are planning to upgrade to Windows 7 x64 for the XPS M1330.
Personally I'm currently on Vista Ultimate x86 (because it's a Product Red) and I'm entitled to a free Windows 7 Professional x64 license from my school. I've read that it's not possible to upgrade directly from higher-to-lower (in terms of level of OS).
Like for mine I'd only be able to upgrade directly if I had a Windows 7 Ultimate license.
Hence for my case, I would like to seek the advice from the helpful fellas here on my upgrade (sequence) options.
Currently I have 2 partitions, as per default. C drive as OS and main partition of 285GB and D drive as RECOVERY of 9.99GB.
Questions: 1) If I were to install Windows 7 on a newly created partition, ie. F drive (as my DVDRW is on E drive now), would I be able to format my C drive (after backing up data from it) and turn it into a storage drive?
2) If 1) is possible, should I partition F drive to 20-25GB as the norm capacity for Windows 7 OS installation, or should I allocate more space? (I'm asking this because I've never done an OS-only partition + Data-only partition in any computer I own because I don't see the usefulness of it LAST TIME.
3) If I had an OS partition in F drive, 20-25GB, and the Data partition on C drive (after formatting Vista), would I be able to swap these 2 drive letters so C drive becomes my Windows 7 OS Drive and F drive becomes my Data drive?
4) If that's the case, would I still be needing D drive (RECOVERY), or can I format->delete it?
5) Having 20-25GB in C drive, assuming I've swapped F drive with C drive, where would I be installing my applications? Do I need to install applications into the OS drive or can I install it in the Data drive? Because if it were the case that applications NEED to be installed into the OS drive, I'd need to allocate a little more space in now-C drive, right?
This thread is for all sxps 1340 & 1640 owners that would like to share or make any modifications to their studio xps laptops, (internal mods, cosmetic mods, skins, paint, stickers, copper mods, performance, any mods!)
If you have any pictures to share of how unique your system looks now or how you applied any changes feel free to post.
The only mods I have done are: Copper mod overclock processor from 2.4 to 2.7 slighty overclocked 9400mg
I decided to make this thread because there are so many of us out there who have all had the same problems and have gone through he** and back with Dell customer/tech support and are wanting to get a replacement and/or already have. Our posts are scattered everywhere so I just thought we should all unify them and post here to help others who are in our situation.
State what you currently have or previously owned, ( ie the bad laptop), specs etc. and what the problems are/were. Then if you have already gotten a replacement, only the relevant specs (the ones that changed or upgrades you got) and any additional notes you want to add about the process, how long it took etc.
If anyone is on the fence about what to do with their situation please feel free to ask. This should be an informative and helpful thread for those looking into getting there laptop replaced or fixed by Dell, or just want some advice on what to do with their problematic 1640/45/47. This is by no means a thread to gloat or brag about your replacement upgrade, but rather a place for everyone to share their experiences and help others. Thanks!

So, this thread is for all the SXPS 1640 owner's to post when they ordered, status updates only, and when received etc.....Basically this is a thread is for Order Status (and all included w/in the thread title)
Please use this format, it's nice and easy for all to read: Ordered On: 2/4/09
I thought it was time to get an *Order Status* thread started on the Studio XPS 1340, since so many are ordering it!

Because the Studio XPS 1645 Intel Core i7 Owner's thread was getting pretty *thick* with *Order Status* Inquiries, etc... I thought it was time to get an *Order Status* thread started, since so many are ordering it! And, to lessen the *heavyness* felt with the Owner's thread.
Also, we really should keep Status Updates, Order Delays, Progress as such, separated in this section of the forum! It will make the other thread "easier on the eye" per se!
