I have a Studio XPS 13 with the 256GB SSD option and absolutely love it.
My wife uses a Mac... one of the new 13" Macbook Pro's. It came with a 160GB 5400RPM drive but she needs more room and after seeing my XPS fly with the SSD she has decided that she just has to have an SSD.
Looking out on the Dell website I see that they sell the 256GB Dell branded SSD for under $500 which seems like a really good deal but I'm not sure if it will work in the MBP .....
Just got it and installed it - still playing around.
Steps to installation - existing HD WD 320GB 7200 (a truely good and silent drive) New SSD - G.Skill 256GB SSD
1.Sell one small offspring to come up with the cash. 2.I cleaned up my HD - took all the stuff I did not use out 3.CCleaned it 4.Did the last defrag I should ever do 5.Installed the SSD in my Roswill USB case and connected to my M1330 6.Initialized the drive 7.Formated the drive 8.Downloaded the latest build of Acronis 2009 9.Cloned the HD to the SSD 10.Booted up quickly with no issues. Works great. Boots fast.Everything "pops". I will miss little Bobby but he kept touching my stuff. By the way 8 months and no Nvidia issues.
I have an E4300 coming today with a 256GB Encrypted Mobility SSD in it.
I had always thought that the encryption was totally SSD-based. But in thinking about it, if that was the case, then I could move the SSD to another notebook and it would still work, since the encryption is IN the SSD.
So, there must be something (TPM, etc) that ties the encrypted SSD to the notebook.
Just picked up a (seemingly) great deal on an E4300 from the Outlet with a 256GB Encrypted Mobility SSD for about $1100, and wondered which SSD actually comes with it? I'm hoping it's at least a 2nd Generation Samsung and not some old 1st Gen Samsung that's slow as molasses!
I'm about to order the Studio XPS 16 but don't know which hard drive option to pick. Can someone please tell me the pros and cons of each?! Also how hot does the laptop get compared to a Macbook Pro (which I currently own)? Thanks!
does anybody know what model of SSD hard drives apple offer on their website for macbook pros? for example is it intel,samsung etc... I just would like to know the model so I can compare it to other models out there.
what I can safely do with my new 17rse? I'd like to do something along the lines of putting¬†a 32gb mSata (no option pre-purchase) as cache for my HDD but does this become pointless if I'd also like to add a larger 256gb SSD as a primary drive with OS on it?
This laptop just went out of warranty when the lcd started growing vertical lines(have had 4 screens replaced under warranty for the same thing ) Should i fix it with a new screen and sell it or just part it out?
What is/are the part number(s) for the 16" 1080p RGBLED screen? My Dell order keeps getting some 1080p 15.6" WLED screen ... I'd like to use the part # and get the manager to fix it quickly. Also what is the part # for Bluetooth?
Dell just upgraded my faulty 9500m mother board to the latest rev with the G 210M. Problem is the old heatsink and fan combo (part number U943D) will no longer fit as the screw post location has changed.
Images below reflect the changes. 1st 1340 w/9500m with dell part #U943D 2nd 1340 w/G210m (just cant read Part#) 3rd My mainbaord and fan the tech said would work (without a heatsink on gpu. Yeah I know.. )
If you look close the heatsink right under the fan (and fan is different too) is different on the right side as the screw moves up.
Can anyone with the G210m give me the part number of the fan and heatsink? Dell for the life of them cant figure it out and have sent the wrong parts 4 times already. Its really getting frustrating. Any and all part numbers or High detailed readable pictures would be greatly apreciated!!!
-= The part has been identified!! Dell Part#C755T =-. See post #11 for more info
Anyone, by chance, know the part number for the HDD bracket and plastic cap assembly for the M1330? This is bascially the assembly that goes around your HDD with the 'cap' on the end that mates up to the laptop case.
I've been looking on Dell's site for a bit (and ebay) and can't seem to find the part. I'd like to pick up a spare for my Win7 Drive I've been playing with, rather than swapping the HDD in and out of my existing frame.
