Is this the same technology and amazing screen as the XPS Studio 16? Anyone have this screen care to comment? I'm looking for a very bright and high quality screen and the Studio 17 seems like a perfect replacement for my Asus W2V.
I have an XPS 12 that I have a question about. When my computer is plugged in the power option is set to High Performance. When I unplug it it goes to Power Saver. How do I get the power option to permanently be on High Performance?
Just over a week ago there there was an option for WXGA+ display (1440x900) WLED. I was on the verge of buying but I held out for a coupon which I got next day. Problem was the next day the WXGA+ was no longer an option.
I am left with the choice of base WXGA WLED (1280 x 800), the CCFL version of that or WUXGA+ CCFL (1920x1200) @ £100 more. That is too high for me (resolution & maybe price). I really wanted the WXGA+ WLED and am pissed off it has gone
Anyone with knowledge of how dell works have any ideas why they would not be offering it any more or any ideas if it might come back?

I want to know if my laptop is capable of playing hd dvd's
I've recently bought a dell studio 15. It's got a tsstcorp dvd +-rw ts-t633a ata, Radeon hd3400 and high definition sound devices..... yet I tried to play a hd dvd and the dvd player just kept ejecting the dvd and couldn't play it.
Just purchased a 1555 with the radeon 4570 512mb GPU, Windows 7 64-bit, and performance is generally very good apart from one strange result. Windows experience index reports the following -
Processor - 5.7 Memory - 5.8 Graphics - 4.9 Gaming Graphics - 6.3 hard disk - 5.9
So the only low result is the desktop aero graphics performance at 4.9, which seems strange when the 3D businnes/gaming graphics score is 6.3. Other results i've seen posted on forums of the Windows 7 WEI scores are usually the same for desktop graphics and 3D graphics in Windows 7, which I would have expected as I understood that aero uses the GPU similarly to games. If anything, it looked like in most results the desktop graphics scores were slightly higher than the gaming graphics scores.
Does anyone know why I could be getting a lot lower desktop graphics score compared to gaming graphics?
I've checked the graphics drivers are up to date.
Can anybody else post their Windows 7 WEI scores from the 1555 with the 4570 512mb GPU?
So after installing the new 185 drivers a couple of weeks ago, I turned on SLI, restarted, and forgot about it.
Now I just checked the nvidia panel and there is no option to turn on SLI. I went to device manager and only one 8800m gtx is listed there when there used to be 2... seems like the computer doesn't even see the second GPU.
tried reinstalling the drivers but still only one gpu is showing up...
I'm going to buy a Dell Latitude E6400 to replace my old TP T42. I only have a doubt about what HD option to choose.
I'm pretty interested in having a encrypted hard disk option (80GB 5400rpm Encrypted Hard Drive) but I don't really know how does it work. On my thinkpad notebook you can choose if you want the hard drive protected with a master password or not. You configure this in the BIOS.
Could anyone say me if on the Dell Latitude E Series notebooks it works in the same way? Or maybe the disk is encrypted by a windows software or anything? I'm worried about this because I'm going to use more than one OS in the notebook and if I'm going to pay for a encrypted hard drive I want it to be OS independent.
Where do you configure this feature? Also in the BIOS or maybe in a hard drive controller?
If the encrypted hard drive is more expensive than other options, I suppose that if I one day I change the disk for another, this one must has encrypted data support? I can't simply change it for any kind of notebook HD?
I'm looking to get a notebook cooler for my E6400, as I am sure some other are considered or have taken advantage of. So, I want to find out one that is going to work the best.
I am considering the following:
- Zalman ZM-NC1000, said to be really quiet and effective. From what I gather blows air up at the notebook
- Antec notebook cooler, also supposed to be quite effective. This one I think sucks away the hot air from the notebook
Now the question is, what is going to be the better choice? I think the fan on the E6400/ E6500 blows hot air out of the notebook right? In which case the cooler that then helps in taking that away would be best?
*UPDATE* The design is on the inside aswell. See pictures below.
I just wanted to give everybody a headsup that may be thinking about purchasing a Dell laptop and choosing the black chainlink color.
A little backstory:
I'm starting college at the end of the month, and was looking at getting a laptop for my classes. I really liked the Studio 15, read quite a bit of reviews and finally built it all online and got it ordered.
What I DIDN'T know was that the color option, Black Chainlink, was actually a design .....
