Dell :: About Up-coming Arrandale (Core I3/i5) Laptops?

Jan 6, 2010

I want something like this:

(These are the must-haves)
15" chassis class
Core i5 CPU
1920x1200 or 1920x1080 resolution
8GB of ram
Preferably an SSD, but I can wiggle on this one
Upgraded battery
Don't care too much about graphics, and since the i3/i5's have a built in video I'd go with that, it looks to be fast enough for me.

Budget is about $1500-2000

Right now there is the Alienware m15x with the mobile core i7, but I don't REALLY need a quadcore, or the faster graphics, or the power consumption of either. I am hoping that there is an inspiron or Studio coming out (tomorrow?!) that can be made to meet my above specs... Anyone have any info?

Acer :: Dual Core SU2300 Benchmarks Vs Single Core SU3500 - 1410

Nov 3, 2009

I bought the Acer 1410 with the single core SU3500 Core 2 Solo CPU. It looks like Acer decided to release them with the SU2300 now, which is dual core at 1.2GHz (compared with 1.4GHz of SU3500).

Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing the two, and/or if they have a solid understanding how much better it would perform compared with the SU3500? I also see that the single core AS1410 with Celeron M @ 1.3GHz sells at the same price as the dual core.

Acer :: Upgraded Core Solo T1350 To Core 2 Duo T7200 On Aspire 5570 Guide

Jan 23, 2009

(UPDATES: DIY Bluetooth module guide added below)

upgrading my Aspire 5570 notebook more than a year ago. This time, Iím feeling lucky to share some of my experiences about how I finally upgraded my CPU from a Core Solo T1350Core 2 Duo T7200.

Again, thanks to everybody here in Notebookreview forum especially adinu, hoggie, Mack1982, TehSuigi, krazyphire and bigozone for their insights and knowledge that helps me a lot throughout the whole process. So, letís get started!

Pre-upgrading

Please refer to these post before you start. It'll save you a lot of time and trouble later on.
Upgraded Acer 3680 Celeron CPU to a T5300!
Aspire 5315 CPU Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide

What youíll need :Your new CPU (make sure it's compatible with your system ie; socket, FSB)Latest BIOS from Acer (upgraded to 1.3505 or latest)A good thermal paste (I would recommend Tuniq TX-2 or Arctic Silver 5 as well)Basic tools (screwdrivers, forceps, kitchen paper)Body static discharger (I would definitely recommend this as a precaution)Some alcohol, ear buds, sand paper grid 600,1200 & 2000 (optional for heat sink lapping)Lastly TIME and PATIENCE (youíll be needing these a lot definitely!)When youíre ready, lets get our hands dirty.

How to disassemble your notebook?
I found out a very good video tutorial on how to disassemble my Aspire notebook on YouTube. So please take your time to view it and follow step by step as shown to help you to go through the process.

Lapping your heat sink (optional)
Although itís not necessary, but I would recommend this process as another way to improve heat dissipation on your newly installed CPU. Refer to this page for detailed instructions.

The simple process:Clean your heat sink from old thermal paste residues with alcohol or equivalent of it using ear buds and kitchen papers.Apply a 600-grid sandpaper to smoothen the heat sink surface which comes into contact with your CPU.Repeat the process again with a 1200-gid sand paper until youíre satisfied.Finally, finish up by applying a 2000-grid sand paper to give you an almost mirror-finished surface. Wipe clean any dirt and residues left.....................................

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16dual Core Or The HDX 18quad Core For Video

Mar 2, 2009

I want to upgrade my old laptop to something nice, and am torn between to systems.

An HDX 16 with:

2.40 Ghz dual core duo ( P8600 chip )
6 gigs of ram

OR...

An HXD 18 with
2.0 Ghz QUAD core ( QX9000 chip )
4 gigs of ram

both systems have the same video card ( Nvidia with 512megs of ram ) 500 gig hard drive.

What would be the faster machine for doing video ? and what would be the overall faster machine ?

I realize that not all applications will take advantage of a quad-core chip like the QX900, so this is why I"m asking. if the dual-core P8600 chip @ 2.40 Ghz in the HP HDX 16 with that 6 gigs of ram will actually be faster overall than the quad core would be, and perhaps even be faster at rendering video ?

what the performance difference is between the Intel Core i7-620M and the . Intel Core i7-820QM. I always thought the quad core 820QM was faster, but on the hp website the dual core 620M is more expensive.

Is the 620M faster? And is it faster for specific things only?

Dell XPS 15Z :: Not Coming Out Of Hibernation

Dec 29, 2011

I've just purchased an XPS 15Z (highest category with the 256 SSD) and face a few  issues

1- the computer often does not come out of hibernation, the system cannot be restored after it goes in hibernation mode.

on several occasion I have put my laptop in hibernation mode and when I turn it back on it prompts me with a black screen and an error message giving me 2 options (1 - either try to restore files or 2- exit safe mode and cancel restore) if I chose the first option of trying to restore the files it gives me another error message which says:

"windows boot manager, your computer can't come out of hibernation - status 0xc0000411
info: a fatal error occurred processing the restoration data
file: hiberfil.sys
Any info that was not saved before the computer went into hibernation will be lost"

Therefore when I turn my computer back on, all windows and programs I had previously opened are closed and not saved

I have had to deal with this issue for over 10 times since I've had my computer (less than 5 days)...

2-  overall memory problem, with approx 50 Gb missing (might be linked to my first issue)...

I haven't installed anything on my laptop except for some photos that I transferred from my old computer (accounting for 40 Gb of memory) however I have 99 Gb of used space on my SSD.... this is weird since every time I switched on my laptop there's less and less space available even though I haven't installed anything new...

I've had the computer for less than a week but both these issues keep happening...

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 With HD 4670 Coming

May 28, 2009

I just noticed on the most recent bios update page for the Studio XPS 16 under the the Fixes and Enhancements tab it says "support new configuration with Gfx ATI Mobility Radeon?HD 4670".

This is probably an indication that the HD 3670 is going to be replaced with the newer HD 4670 sometime soon. If you are thinking about buying a Studio XPS 16 anytime soon you might want to wait.

Dell :: XPS 16 Sound Coming Out Of Subwoofer

Feb 24, 2009

I just got a Dell Studio XPS 1640 today and I am having a major issue with the speakers. It sounds as if the person who put the laptop together wired them incorrectly, the top speakers near the keyboard sounds very faint and tinny like a surround speaker on a home theater system, but the volume is very low and cannot hear it unless you put your ear up to the speakers.

Dell :: Computer Noise Coming Through Firewire

Jul 13, 2007

I have got a Dell 9300 that I've been using for recording for a while. I've recently gotten a new external audio interface, a Presonus Firestudio that I connect to the Firewire port on the 9300. I'm getting digital noise coming through the Firestudio from the 9300 through the Firewire port. The noise, ie. chirping, clicking and popping, happens when you move your mouse or resize a window.

I've tried running the interface into the computer using a PCMCIA to FW adapter and running it into the cardbus slot. That has reduced the noise some, but has not eliminated it.

I don't remember getting this noise always, but I certainly have been dealing with it for a while. The noise isn't recorded so I can record just fine, it's just noisy when I'm monitoring.
