Dell :: Upgrade A M1210 (2ghz C2D T7200) To A Vostro 1320 (T9550) 2.6ghz? Worth The Upgrade?

Jan 11, 2010

I have an aging M1210 with 2 gigs of ran, a OCZ SSD & the C2D 2ghz T7200 processor.

I wasnt really planning on an upgrade but the pricing looks pretty good.

I am not sure if its worth it though. My M1210 with SSD is amazing.

I just dont know if going from a 2.0 T7200 to a 2.66 T9550 is worth it or if i should wait longer for an I7 system in this size?

Dell :: XPS 1640 W/4670...is It Worth The Upgrade?

Jul 28, 2009

I currently have an ASUS G50V-A2 and am looking to sell it to get a new Dell XPS 1640 with the new graphics chipset.

I have only had the ASUS since last October, but I am always wanting a new laptop every 6 - 12 months and this Dell has caught my eye.

Looking at the specs they are similiar, but the Dell does have a few upgrades to what I have:

2.66GHz processor (Asus - 2.53)
Vista Upgrade to Windows 7 (Asus - no upgrade)
1920x1080 (Asus - 1680x1050)
ATI 4760 (Asus - Geforce 9700GT) .....

Dell :: Vostro 1320, Worth To Upgrade Webcam And HD?

Apr 15, 2009

I got a good deal on Vostro 1320 base model and just got confirmation from Dell Canada. Now can any one share your opionion whether it is worthwhile to add the integrated 1.3M webcam for $40 and upgrade HD from 160G 5400rpm HD to 250G 7200rpm HD with free fall sensor for $50 (all before tax)?

I might call them to see if they can manually upgrade for me.

I know I can upgrade the HD afterward, and I usually can find a good deal on 320G 7200rpm Hitachi HD for $70 or so if I can wait.

But my question is how difficult and how much hassle is to upgrade HD myself, and does that invalid the warranty, also what does the free fall sensor mean? Worth to have it?

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7, Is It Worth The Upgrade

Nov 10, 2009

Some people may remember me as not liking Vista too much, and going out of my way to keep XP or installing XP in place of Vista.

I have used Vista for some time though, and familiarized myself to it. I used it for about a year if anyone is interested (still have XP on my main laptop though).

I have been out of the loop regarding technology and software, and last week, I found out that Windows 7 came out. I remember reading about Windows 7 and heard its supposed to be this "GREAT AWESOME NEW OS YO" and "waaayyyy better than Vista... cant wait for it to come out". So I got excited, made plans to buy a new HDD and install it on my ancient but still running dv9500t. Before I actually make that sort of investment and commitment, I went to Best Buy to try it on their laptops...

To me, its just like Vista. It looks and acts just like Vista. Am I missing something here?

Are there supposed to be great improvements? If so, then what? And how true are these claims?

A quick look at the new Windows 7 site by Microsoft showed me that they are comparing the Windows XP from the stone age to Windows 7, rather than compare Vista and Win7... that makes me laugh and wonder. The things that they list about Windows 7, I noticed that Vista had them too, with the exception of "shake the window and only focus on it". Whats going on here?

Dell :: Is It Worth It To Upgrade My Inspiron 1545 From It's T4200 To A P8700?

Feb 23, 2010

I'm in love with the computer but it seems to be lacking a bit in speed. I usually use my desktop that has a Q6600 along with 4 GB of RAM. I do use this frequently though while on the road and while it's fairly quick I notice that it gets a bit bogged down at times. It currently has a T4200 along with 2 GB of RAM. As with all of my new computers I formatted it it upon delivery with Windows XP Pro SP3 so it's not a matter of bloatware and such. Is it worth it to upgrade the processor? Would bit be a significant difference in speed? If so could you please suggest a processor that would be the best bang of the buck? I stated the P8700 because it's the fastest processor that Dell offers but if there's something better please don't hesitate to offer a suggestion.

Apple :: HD Upgrade Worth It On Unibody Macbook Pro

Jul 13, 2009

I just picked up a new unibody macbook pro. The last rev, 2.4ghz, 200gb, 2gb ram. I couldnt pass up the $1439 clearance price at my local best buy.

Im definitely upgrading to 4gb ram, but wavering on the HD. Is there a significant performance gain from the 7200rpm drives?

Dell :: Xps 13 :: Would The SSD Be Worth

Jul 14, 2009

Would the SSD be worth the extra money on this? Can the GPU handle games coming out like Diablo3 and Starcraft2?

Is the heat issue fixed on this model? How is the battery life? Is there anything else I should recommend or take away from this let?

Any help or tips would be appreciated. He plans on buying next week. I'm still looking but this sleek design looks WAY better than the HP..

Dell :: SSD In A M1710, Is It Worth It ?

Feb 21, 2010

I've searched the forum but could not find a definite answer.

My wife is using my old m1710 mainly for photoshop and i have noticed that it's very very hdd intensive. She complains that it would freeze sometimes when working with a lot of files or with large files.

I decided to upgrade the HDD to SSD, but after reading here and there i saw different opinions.

Some say i will not see any increase in performance because the bottleneck is the SATA support of m1710 mobo, some say still there will be increase in performance.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Worth Getting Now?

Mar 8, 2009

A Dell Studio 1737 OR the Dell Studio XPS 1640? The Studio 1737 has been out longer for any problems to be fixed and whatnot and comes at a lower price. The Studio XPS 1640 has been out for just a couple of months and there are dozens of reports of BSOD's, heating issues, etc...

I would like to get the Studio XPS 1640, but generally I wait about 4-6 months after the product has been released before buying. There are talks about a built-in TV Tuner, but I haven't seen that on the Dell website. People are also saying Dell is going to upgrade the video card .....

Dell :: I Really Want The XPS16 But Is It Really Worth It If It Heats Up Exorbintantly

Jul 4, 2009

I will be using my future laptop as a desktop replacement, meaning I will be using it a lot(games and movies especially). If it heats up a lot, not only is it uncomfortable, but it can also be deleterious to the machine and can even be dangerous. Plus, I want to customize it to almost its maximum power.

So if it heats up as much as people say it does, is it worth it?
