Dell :: Studio XPS 13/16 Standard Obsidian Finish, No Leather?

Jul 24, 2009

This was just pointed out as a side note in another thread...the Studio XPS series laptops now have an additional lid option:

Obsidian Black High Gloss finish, which is a separate option from the Obsidian Black with Leather Accent, and the Merlot Red with Leather Accent.

Is Dell actually selling this model without the leather now? If so, that's great news .....

Sony :: Skin To Preserve Finish On The Vaio's, Particularly On The Mouse Buttons So The Silver Stippled Paint Finish Wears Away

Apr 5, 2010

Is there any way to preserve finish of the Sony Vaio FW, particularly on the mouse buttons and where the palm-rest is, I hear the silver stippled paint finish wears away leaving bare white plastic underneath.

Is there a skin or plastic screen cover that you guys use or recommend to prevent this or hide defects?

I recently picked up this bad boy for just $744 (after 12.3% bing cashback (Google it if you don't know what it is)).


Has anyone heard any other issues with this laptop?

It has the 1600x900 screen which I've heard some criticism of (I heard something about it having a one-lamp "eco" screen) but I don't know if that applies to the model I bought or how good the eco screen is.

If I can get a skin that is precut for that laptop's dimensions in particular (nothing fancy, just black would be good), that would be awesome.

I'm considering this skin, but it's not precut, and I don't know how good it is...

Dell :: Studio: Matte Vs Glossy Finish

Jan 16, 2009

Is anyone here familiar with the "finish" option on the Studio? I was told over the phone that if I get black or white, it will come in a glossy finish, and if I get one of the colors, it will come in a textured matte finish. I prefer the matte finish, because glossy plastic finishes are a big problem---my palms stick to the plastic.

Dell :: Is The Leather Piece On The Xps 16 Removable?

Jun 29, 2009

Seems that if it was it would be easy to fabricate a replacement piece with holds/vents for DIY or to have Dell swap in a new vent friendly design. I haven't got my xps 16 yet- Is the consensus that with undervolting and a pad its fine?

Sony :: Vaio Z11, Extended Batteries And Leather Case

May 11, 2010

I'm about to purchase a Vaio Z (sweeet!), with a config from the Sony website. They advertise the extended battery, but is that the VGP-BPL11 / S11 or X11?

here are the batteries.

I would think it's the middle ground battery, the X11 being some kind of special James Bond-type add on, but I'd like a confirmation if anyone is able to provide. I tried to contact their support but it's just not getting through.

Furthermore, are these all compatible with the VGPCKZ2.AE case? Looks perfect for my needs.

Dell :: Has Anyone Received An RGBLED NON-Covet M6400- Is It Matte Finish

Dec 8, 2008

Dell is finally starting to help me out as far as the screen glossiness and some other issues I've been having.

Before I tell them what parts I need in a replacement, I need to know if the M6400 RGBLED screen (not the Covet) is matte finish?

I'd really appreciate it - I can't trust their sales staff to actually know. My gut instinct would be that the E2E RGBLED screen is glossy, while the other is matte... but I don't want to replace my glossy with another glossy!

HP/Compaq :: HP Imprint Finish Durability

Jul 22, 2009

I was curious about the durability of the HP imprint finish. I did a search and didn't run across anything.

Anyway, I recently ordered an HP HDX16t (which shipped today!). This is my first HP computer. I'm concerned with the high gloss case scratching over time. The last laptop I had was an ASUS G1S which was also glossy. Even with my constant attention, and careful placement into a neoprene sleeve every time it was not in use, still became scratched and looked very dull in the 2 years of it's service.

HP/Compaq :: HP's Mirror Finish Touchpad

Jan 29, 2010

from most reviews you see people complaining that it's the worst trackpad they've ever used, but then there are some people who get used to how it works and find it not so bothersome... after owning my dm3 for 2 weeks, i realized that i naturally learned how to "glide" over the trackpad instead of pressing against it (like you would with a normal trackpad). when i've kept his in mind, navigating around windows becomes much easier for me.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Start Up Repair Not Working - Click Finish To Exit

Apr 25, 2011

My computer was being used by my girlfriend to watch some show.  During her use, my computer "freaked up" and she had to manually shut it down.  Now whenever I turn on my computer, it goes to my normal log-in page but instead of my password boz coming up, a gray window comes up.  It reads:

"Start Up Repair. Windows cannot repair this computer automatically.If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer.  If you continue to see this message, contact you system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance, Click Finish to exit and shut down your computer.

HP/Compaq :: Can't Finish Windows Vista Install Using Recovery DVDs

Jul 25, 2009

I bought a new MacBook Pro and am going to give my folks my 2 year old HP dv6500t. I backed up all my stuff and using the System Recovery DVDs from HP wiped out and reformatted the drive.

Unfortunately now when I try to turn on the system I get a message about there being an error in c:windowspantherunattend.xml at line 6 column 169 (I think) and it can't process the answer file.

I tried to boot into safe mode to see if I could see what is in the unattend.xml file and of course Windows Install can't run in Safe Mode.

Is there any way I can get the dv6500 to be useable again?

Dell Vostro 3500 :: Can Use A Standard USB Keyboard And Mouse With Such A Laptop

Jul 1, 2010

I have never used a laptop before (I prefer to work on a server machine) but am considering one at present.I'm looking at a Vostro 3500 but that could change.

1)  Can I use a standard USB keyboard and mouse with such a laptop?  (No need for special devices!)

2)  Are there any problems with PS-2 to USB adaptors connecting keyboard and mouse to a USB port?  (Yes I have a few keyboards and mice in storage!)

3)  Can I install a standard out of the box version of Windows 7 Ultimate (already licensed) on the Vostro 3500?

4)  I saw reference somewhere to touch screen control in Win 7 coming sometime.  What are the release plans for such capabilities in Dell laptops?

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Upgrading Keyboard - Standard To Backlit

Mar 2, 2013

I was recently given a Latitude E6530 and I wish to upgrade the standard keyboard to a backlit one after coming from a MacBook Air. I was wondering, does E6530 (or it's similar models) requires an additional cable to power the backlight or does it just feed off the single cable? I've scoured YouTube and Google to try find out if an extra cable is required for this model however wasn't able to.

Sony :: Has Anyone Actually Replaced A Standard HDD In A Vaio VGN-Z With SSD

May 10, 2010

So Im getting ready to buy an intel X25-M SSD drive, but I was on the phone with sony support about my VGN-Z26GN (last year model Z not current one)

Which has a normal HDD drive, and I asked him if I can install a 2.5" SSD drive. He said it wouldnt fit.. I was thinkin ? Ain't it the same size? He said nah it wouldnt fit and even if you did put it in, you'd have to recode the motherboard or something...

I'm almost certain I have read people on this forum replacing their HDD's in the Vaio Z with SSD's.....
