well i have a dell latitude e6400 from the outlet and all of a sudden a ton of xps 1340s came in stock and i got a good one and im debating on whether i should keep i buy it or not and return my e6400.
so i was wondering how do u guys like it? how long does the 6 cell last and does it overheat alot? and do u personally think its durable and will last as long as my e6400?
I just talked to dell via a chat and they said that I cannot upgrade to anymore then 4GB of ram which I currently have. I looked at the specs on the build site and the Ram are all SDRAM at the same 1067 MHz. Am I missing something?
I was wondering if anyone has tried out any games on the V13...
I am considering getting the V13 (and you gotta admit, it's one sleek looking laptop); but would really want to be able to play Starcraft 2 on it. I simply want to play it on all low settings and have playable frame rates..
I would be getting the Core 2 Dual 1.3Ghz config...
And of course, the only video card choice, the famous GMA 4500MHD..
I just bought this new laptop and it froze on me during inital set up and dell had to reimage it on the phone with me. Now that I have it where I can use the machine after about an hour of web surfing it seems like the bottom is pretty hot and near the vent is so hot you could not hold your hand there. I was thinking of calling dell back and talking to them about it. Are other people experiencing a lot of heat with this computer?
I think I have decided to purchase a Dell Studio XPS 1340, as I require a new laptop before the end of June and I'm not sure anything better in this class will be available before then.
I will be using it for a bit of everything, including work, portability, hooking it up for presentations, general surfing on the couch and some minor game playing. I have a few questions about purchasing it.
1. CPU. At the moment both the P9500 (2.53GHz) and the P9600 (2.66GHz) cost an extra $388.30. Shouldn't the P9600 cost more than the P9500? Am I missing something here?
2. Screen. I get a lot of glare on my current laptop at work. Does the XPS 1340 have a glossy or matte screen? Does choosing WLED or CCFL have any effect on this?
3. Deals. There is currently a $150 cash off deal which ends tomorrow (Thursday). This seems like a pretty good deal to me.
Should I take this or is there a high likelihood a better deal will be available soon? I will also be using the EPP code as I'm a full-time student.
Are there any other coupons I could use? In addition to being a full-time student, I am also a small business owner (strange combo I know), and have bought Dell desktops for employees in the past. Would I be able to get a better deal going through a small business sales channel .....
I have owned my XPS 1530 for about 8 months now. It has been quite some time since i took my original temperatures, but i remember running games like warhammer online, call of duty, etc, at a temperature of 45c idle status , and like GPU 71c under hours of gaming. I think the hottest it got was GPU 79 degrees. 8 months later i decided to try gaming again and to my surprise my laptop is getting SO hot that it burns my hands and my speedfan shows the GPU at like GPU 64 idle ( 69 when the batter adapter is in) and up to 91-95 when on a game. I used to have a zalman laptop cooler which kept my comp a bit cooler, but i only noticed it effecting my temp. by about 2-3 degrees. I am going to undervolt and get my broken zalman replaced but I need to know one thing:
Do I have defective hardware? Is it normal to see an increase in temperatures as laptops get older? I am very afraid that something is damaged. Also, is there a specific driver that i should be running which can help my graphics card cool down, or am i one of the unlucky few who have been given a bugged 8600gt.
I realize that many people here have an m1710 and i figured this could be a place to get some answers. So im playing Oblivion on my m1710 and i noticed when i have it at the highest resolution with no AA it gets really shitty fps so i turned it down to the second highest with no AA and i still got shity fps when in battle and such. I then proceeded to turn it down even lower. After all of this I still get shitty fps (down to like 8 in battle) even when its at like 1280 by 1024 so this is all with antialiasing off and when i turn it on not much happens except like 3 less fps. So i was just wondering if anyone knew what the hell my problem was because its annoying me. Even when i overclock my graphics card it doesnt really help but maybe 3 to 4 fps better.
my specifications are: m1710/ 2gigs of ram / t7400 dual core processor 2.16ghz/ nvidia go 7950gtx ?
I have a new XPS 1340, That seems to be having issues with starting up in the wee hours. Monday morning 4:30am I woke up for work, looked over at the Laptop sitting on the desk and the side hinge lights were on.opened screen and saw the login page. I always shut my computer down completely I don't use the hibernate feature.
Several Times last week I noticed when I came home from work and powered up the laptop instead of "starting Windows" it said "resuming Windows". I really don't know if this just started or has been this way since day one. I do know that the battery level always indicates 100% when I shut down and when I start up it's down to about 92% from just sitting turned off? Again I don't use hibernate I "Shut down". using windows 7.
Are their scheduled tasks that can start my machine I have noticed about 34 scheduled tasks in the scheduler can't quite undertsand why so many tasks come pre loaded. Anyway, most have never executed can I just delete them?any help, suggestions, greatly appreciated.
Spent the past 45 min trying to talk to Dell, been on hold guess lunch time is a bad idea.
Could I have a Progrram that is trying to "auto run once" ?
The 1640/45/47 owners and the m1330 owners have their respective replacements threads. There has also been a concern about getting Alienware instead of XPS thread. So I created this thread because the Studio XPS 1340 has reached EOL and is no longer offered as a replacement. Thus, I would like 1340 owners' help in tracking and monitoring replacements.
Please specify experiences regarding:What are the specs of your current XPS 1340?What system was received in lieu of the SXPS 1340? Specs? New or Refurb?At what point were you aware of the system you were going to receive?How long did the systems' exchange process take?Did you attempt escalation or any form of negotiation?Are you happy with your replacement? .........
