Dell :: Studio XPS 16 @ Bestbuy
Quick question, does anybody know what is the screen resolution of the Studio XPS 16 from BestBuy?

If its the old xps 16 it can be 1366x768. If not it can be either 1680x900 or 1920x1080.

This specification is not displayed in their website, it only says it has a 15.6'' HD LED-backlit screen..

It really looks like a great deal. Anyone get to see it in store? How is the 1600x900 display? Decent colors and PQ? Going to check it out tomorrow night, but just wondering if anyone has seen this yet.

Sony :: CW Bestbuy
My girlfriend wants me to pick a laptop for her for school next year and I think I've decided on the Vaio CW series, but I'm a little confused about what I've heard.

I understand that the CW's on Bestbuy.com have a higher resolution screen and the 330 graphics card,

making it much better than the CW on the sonystyle website. Will Sony be updating their CW series soon to match Bestbuy's?

HP/Compaq :: Bestbuy Vs HP
So getting the Envy 15 @ BB and off HP is pretty much the exact same right? Except from HP you get to customize it.

But BB might have the credit card special of no payment for 12 months and at the BB reward points at the same time..

Dell :: Question About Bestbuy's Studio XPS From Non-American!
I'm going to get someone to pick up a laptop for me in the US on a trip from Europe but this means that I'm limited to whatever is in stores with no scope for customisation.

Would anyone be able to answer the following questions about the Studio XPS laptops that Bestbuy sell?

-Screen - as far as I can tell they sell the basic model so I'm assuming this is a CCFL rather than an LED on the 13 and the 16? Anyone have this screen? Is it really that much worse than the WLED version? .....

Dell :: Inpiron 1764Review (bought At BestBuy)
After spending months, I finally talked the woman into buying a laptop. I am a decent power user, use Macs,

Windows and Linux. First computer (Atari 800) had a cassette tape as storage. I've used DOS, Windows 3.1, Win 95, Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7. I build my own desktops, and have since they ran at 266MHz. My first Mac was a 7100/66. Yes, that's 66MHz, lol.

As you can well imagine, it was my azz on the line for anything that did not pan out. I really had to make sure we got her what SHE wanted and not what I wanted.

First, I have to review the online shopping experience. Pretty awful. The HP website is a pure train wreck. I hated the website enough that I could not bring myself to even consider an HP. One major manufacturer down .....

HP/Compaq :: DV9535nr- BestBuy-made Recovery Discs And Crapware
I have a DV9535nr and I want to do a clean install to get rid of crapware. BestBuy furnished me a set of discs (at no cost unlike some I have read about) but will these contain the crap I want to eliminate? When I try to run the recovery disc feature and make my own from my hard drive it tells me a set has been made (yeah, yeah, ok ok MS/HP) so it looks like BestBuy beat me to it.

I ordered a set from HP to be on the safe(r) side but have read in this forum that these might not be such a good idea, either... bugs etc...

Dell :: Square Trade Warranty Or Warranty?
I just recently placed an order for a Studio 1737 (replacing an Inspiron E1705). It comes with a 1 year warranty.

I'm debating whether it's worth spending $200+ to upgrade to a Dell 3 year warranty or should I get a 3 year Square Trade Warranty for less than $150 (I can get one for around $120 after a coupon)?

I have a Dell XPS1330 and have a problem with it and I dont know if my laptop is still under warranty.

Dell :: Should Buy Warranty And Replacement?
I read lots of people getting replacements for their 2-4 yr old laptops with Dell warranty. I've been using my e1505 since June 2007 and just ordered 1558 last weekend, but with only 1-yr basic warranty.

Which warranties are those people using? Premium or Advanced? Which is comparable to "Complete Care"? Also, would it be cheaper to buy more expensive warranty at the checkout or buy extension once I receive the system?

Warranties cost only a few hundred dollars and people just seem to be getting amazing replacement laptops, like e1505 to SXPS 16.

Dell :: What Warranty For Studio 16 XPS
my question is, what's the best value with these warranties? I know I should probably be protected, but should I assume that after 1 year I'd be in the clear anyway? Also, I think the 1645 doesn't come with 2 year warranties (for some reason) so those would be out of the question.

Dell :: Transferred The Warranty
The reseller transferred the warranty and this was evident by tech support provided in the first few months of ownership. I recently contacted Dell due to my Nvidia Geforce 8800M graphics card not being disabled by Windows. I assume I have a physical problem with my card..

Dell now says I do not have a warranty, that it was never transferred. I pointed out the early tech support and the fact that I know for a fact the warranty was transferred by the reseller. Dell tells me to recontact the reseller and again have the warranty transferred. The reseller is out of business..

Am I up a creek without a paddle or is Dell sandbagging due to the onslaught of video problems with XPS M1730's..

Dell :: Warranty Extension
To keep is short I was trying to extend the warrant for my xps m1530.The online systems doesnít seem to be working after hitting purchase options the page just keeps reloading with Firefox or IE so itís off to the phone.

My first call I get a quote of $169 for a 1 year or $255 plus a $50 rebate for 2 years. Can you imagine I get disconnected? I call back now I get a quote of $179 for a one year and $254 with no rebate available for 2 years. I ask to speak to a supervisor and of course get disconnect again.

Now I try the chat system here is what I got from them.
05/27/2010 02:33:26PMAgent (E&A_RR_Rep_Rick): "for one year, it would be $279, and for two years it's $418.69"
05/27/2010 02:33:48PMAgent (E&A_RR_Rep_Rick): "i could offer a $75 giftcard on either one, but that's the only price i have"


While Iím chatting a supervisor calls me and we agree on a deal for $254 for 2 years. I didnít have a credit card with me so said she would call me at 1pm to make the purchase. She calls gets all the information goes off to process it. Comes back no saying it would be $279 for 1 and $418 for 2 with no gift card available.

I asked to speak to her supervisor and of course disconnected again if you can imagine that. Well thanks for letting me vent.Dell has just lost a long time customer.

Dell :: Latitude OS And Warranty
Going to purchase an E6500 and am wondering which OS to go with. This laptop will need to play well with the other machines on our home intranet in terms of file/printer sharing and such. Two of these machines have vista home and two with xp home.

The options are:
vista home basic - included in price
vista business - +$50

1. What are main differences between vista home and vista business?

2. Are both the vista home and vista business 64 bit? If not, how important is the whole 32 bit, 64 bit deal?

In addition, some clarification on the warranty options would be appreciated. I did read the description but am still a little confused.

The options are:

3 year limited + 3 year mail in - included in price
So this means 3 year warranty total, possibly no understandable English speaking phone support, and you must mail in the machine for repair .....

Dell :: Need Warranty With An M4400?
I'm about to purchase an M4400 as a mobile editing station but I've only got one reservation. Basically, I can buy one with a dell 3 year warranty or I can buy a better speced one for 20% less that doesn't have a warranty as it's from a liquidation of assets sale.

Now, I'm pretty handy with computers/laptop and in the past I've taken apart laptops to replace CPU's, motherboards, hard drives, etc. so I'm fairly comfortable with fixing things when they go wrong. But my question is whether I should expect things to go wrong. I'm especially concerned about the screen and the occurrence of dead pixels. Is this commonplace and how many dead pixels does it take for dell to accept a returns anyway?

At home I have a Dell 2407WFP-HC and I've never had any problems with it. I built my desktop computer myself and I'm not concerned with parts of it going wrong as it's easy to find replacement parts, but the same can't be said for laptops, and there is a significant cost differential!

So, is it worth paying a 25% premium to have the dell warranty? I'm a frugal man, and a penny saved is always a good thing in my book, but not at the expense of having to shell out in 6 months when something goes wrong .....

Dell :: Warranty Concern
Well, let me start off by saying that I received by M1530 at the beginning of this year as an exchange for a Vostro 1500 I had a bunch of little issues with.

To be honest, there was nothing truly wrong with the Vostro 1500, but I'm a sly-talking-Computer-Science-major that was sick of dell support giving me the run-around dozens of times, so I bullied them and got a $1400 system to replace my original $800 purchase

Now the dreaded heat issues related to the 8600m gt are starting to rear their ugly heads. Dell covers this issue a year past the regular warranty, so I have until February or something for the card to die or warrant a replacement.

So my issue is that I originally did not want to deal with dell support so I went ahead and put some AS-5 on the GPU and CPU. Previously I was experiences system shut down during heavy gaming.

The AS-5 only lowered the temperature a couple of degrees average (celsius) and it's been over 200 hours for the curing ......

Dell :: Replacement With New Warranty
I have read a lot of posts which refer to faulty laptop replacement within the first 21 days of ownership. I am in the UK and recall that when I bought a Dell 20" monitor a few years back there was a limitation of 30 days for replacement with a new item.

Following that period, any replacement would be a re-furbished unit. During the 30 day period Dell sent me 3 replacement monitors before I got one with acceptable backlight bleed. They kept sending them without picking up the previous ones. Eventually they arranged a time to collect all the less than perfect monitors.

Can someone post a link to this policy of replacement with new for the first 21 or 30 days only? I have read the Customer Master Service Agreement, the Basic Hardware Support and the XPS NBD Warranty, but I can still find no reference to this policy.

Unfortunately, my 3 year warranty on the old M1710 is due to expire in three days, and the cost to add an additional year on is $360...more than I paid for the three year warranty initially. With Dell replacement computers are covered under the old warranty, and not considered as new units

He called back on Weds to tell me that the other items arrived but no speakers. He called Dell back and called me back last night saying Dell wanted to ask me about depot service. I have a newborn so I didn't get a chance to call till today. They said they would resend the speakers that they failed to send 2 times in a row.

Dell :: XPS M1730 Warranty Scam?
It's been a while since I last posted on these forums - simply because I haven't had any issues in a while. However, my 'R' key broke off my keyboard, which as you can guess is VERY annoying.

I extended my warranty for 3 years - £160, assuming everything was covered. I called up Dell, after waiting 20 minutes on hold in their 'Premium Warranty' Queue, I got through. After reciting my service tag I was told that my warranty had expired.

I told them my order number, and after another five minutes on hold they finally pulled it up. They then told me my battery and keyboard weren't covered by my warranty - it was only covered for my first year.

I was lead to believe that the warranty I was purchasing was exactly what I had last year - which clearly it isn't. Also, here is a quote from the email that the representative sent me to try and get me to buy the warranty .....
