Dell :: M1730XPS/F22 RAPTOR Of Laptops!

Apr 25, 2009

I wanted to spend time on this unit before I gave it my review. In general this is a very impressive laptop both visually and electronically. Initially upon its arrival after pulling off the envelope cover all I could say was "WOW",

and being educated as an Engineer I was shocked that I could ever get this excited about a laptop! The speed is more than impressive!!!!

The smooth shinny surfaces resemble the carbon fibre of the F-22 Raptor fighter jet, as well as state of the art lighting, to go with.

It's like having the Las Vegas strip in a laptop with complete control of all the colors,intensity,as well as other lighting features like the backlit keyboard and strobe light feature for incoming e-mail.

Dell :: WD Raptor (10k RPM) Vs. Notebook Drives

Apr 17, 2009

I currently have a 74gig raptor in my desktop, and I'm going to switch to a notebook for college.

I was wondering how the 7200rpm drives on the m1330 and m1530 compare to this.

Dell :: Laptops = Junk

May 11, 2010

I'm so disgusted with Dell. I bought one of the Vostro 15" laptops when they first came out. Less than 2 years later the motherboard goes out. Last Christmas (2008), I bought my daughter a 13" XPS. It cost me about $1,000. 16 months later the mother board goes out on it and Dell wants $400 to fix it. Either I have the worst luck in the world when it comes to laptops or there is a problem with Dell's QC. My brother bought a cheap Toshiba 5 years ago and it still works fine. I'm not sure what to do about my daughter's laptop. Is it worth $400 to fix it?

Dell :: Duplicate Laptops Sent

Mar 5, 2009

Has anyone else had duplicate laptops for one order sent?

Now, this is the story. My old Inspirion died so I decided to buy a new one, 1525. I ordered it on the 12 February and was told it would be delivered by the 28 February.

On the 17th I am sent an email saying parts to my laptop aren't available - minor parts, the colour I wanted and the free bag colour. I check the online status and it has gone from Shipped from Factory to cancelled on the 19th.

I call Dell to ask why they cancelled my order without telling me, they tell me someone will call me back. No one does.

I get an email on 23rd February saying that my laptop has been upgraded due to parts not being available, 250GB hard drive from 160, Windows Office (never ordered it!), red instead of brown and it will be manufactored asap. A new order number is generated and everything.

On the 24th, my original laptop order is delivered to my work. With both the laptop colour and bag I ordered that apparenetly wasn't available.

On the 28th, I get an email saying the 2nd laptop is shipped. I am away so can't call them so I email them requesting they do not send it. However this second laptop was delivered on 2 March. I call Dell, they don't believe me and according to them the 1st laptop does not exist. They say they will call me back. They don't. However on 4 March, courier calls me to organise a date for the pickup.

I receive an email that day when I get home with a third order, I look at the order status, its the same as the second laptop. I get an email today, the 6th, saying its shipped from the factory.

Everyone I've talked to at Dell do not think my first laptop exists and I can't understand why they are sending me this third one. I don't know what to do, no one at customer service listens to me. There has been only one charge on my credit card.

Dell :: What Happens To RETURNED Laptops?

Feb 18, 2009

What if you sent it back because it was defective? Will they strip the working parts and use it in their next new laptop build, or will it go into their spare parts collection?

Dell :: Outlet Laptops

Nov 5, 2008

I'm curious to hear what experiences you all have had with laptops from Dell Outlet (looking at Latitude D630). Was it a scratch-and-dent, refurbished, previously ordered new, etc.?

I would upgrade to 3-year Pro Support and Warranty and buy additional accessories (docking station, router, etc.).

Is it worth the risk? Will they take it back no questions asked or do I have to pay 15% restocking fee? (Dell was ambiguous about this).

Dell :: Laptops With Linux Support?

Feb 28, 2009

I'm thinking of buying a laptop which is quite powerful and can run Linux (most of my work is in Linux). I'm an engineering student and frequently need to use computationally intensive applications,

which are also graphically intensive. Following a post on another subforum (, I was asked to confirm with Dell users here as to what their Linux experiences are.

I would appreciate inputs and suggestions about purchasing laptops from users of Dell laptops, especially the Latitide and Precision.

I understand that the appropriate subforum for this is different, but since this is now only a matter of deciding which Dell model to purchase

Dell :: Avoid Or At Least Gaming On Laptops

Dec 15, 2009

I recently had the pleasure of having a laptop (inspiron 1520) crap out on me after only just two years (i bought it November 2007). I had a laptop cooler and used the laptop for ocassional LAN parties, gaming and also to do my homework until I broke. I know some of you might say it's my fault for not buying the extended warrenty but come on, a $1300 dollar machine should last at least four years with normal care. That's the least I expect from a normal laptop. Is that too much to ask for? Anyway after that whole expierience I'll never get another laptop for gaming again, especially from Dell.

If you are considering buying a laptop for gaming consider other options unless you really need to game on the go.

Flame on Dell lovers and laptop gamers!

Dell :: Arctic Silver 5 In Laptops

Apr 19, 2009

i got a dell XPS M1710 Its been overheating lately (gpu kissing 90) and shutting down i blew out the air vents and got tons of dust out but its still running hot. I figure its got a lot of dust up on the heat sinks and the like. That seems to be the main problem i noticed cruising the threads here. Its under warranty still so i called dell to come out and dust it, ect. They said they'd do that and replace the fans/heatsink, ect. I guess that's fine, but when i asked if they use AS5, or if they would if i provided them with some, the guy said they dont because it can cause shorts in laptops or something ... is this true?

I asked what they use and he said thermal pads and some kinda paste combo.. thermal pads generally suck, if theyre replacing all this wouldn't AS5 be the best bet? or can it really cause problems. If its being taken apart and switched up id really prefer the guy slapping some AS5 on there even if i gotta buy it.

someone else sugested offering to use AS Ceramique since that should be non conductive, but ive never used that before. My main concern is that if theyre taking it all apart i dont want pads and their junk back on there, because i always thought pads suck.

can the silver really cause a short?

Also i was thinking that maybe i dont want them replacing the fans. Im pretty sure they use refurbished junk with the parts, wouldn't it be better to leave the old fans that worked fine in there, instead of risking some broken piece of junk being slapped in?

i called them over a week ago before going on vacation and they said i couldn't set up an apointment more than a week out so i had to wait till i got back. I just got home today and am waiting for some sugestions before i call them and set this up

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?

Dell :: How Can I Convince To Replace My Laptops Battery

Jul 21, 2009

I've had my 1737 since Dec 19th of 2008 so the battery is a month or so past being 6 months old.

And on the battery health meter, the LED's on the back when you hold it in for 4 seconds it shows 5 bad LED's meaning its significantly degraded.


this video will help show what I mean.

What words can I use what should I say to try and convince them?

Dell :: What Are UK Doing With Laptops With Faulty 8600 Cards?

Jan 9, 2009

I never knew about the nvidia and the stupid faulty 8600 cards until i accidently saw it today. It makes sense why my laptop freezes when it comes out from sleep mode.

Now the question is what are Dell UK doing? I know my laptop is failing now. Can you get your money back because i don't want mine replaced by another faulty 8600 card.

I have a inspiron 1520 with 8600m gt. Its 1 year and 2 or 3 weeks old now. Fortunately i got 3 year warranty.

Dell :: World Of Warcraft And Studio 1x Laptops

Nov 9, 2008

For all you WoW players out there who have purchased Studios with the ATI 3650 graphics chip, could you please give some feedback on gameplay / framerates.

My main concern is whether or not the laptop can handle the game at 1920x1200 resolutions, and failing that 1400x900, both being set at max settings.

I specifically ordered the 1400x900 screen so as not to overburden the video chipset, but if the 3650 is up to snuff, the full HD resolution would be a nice bonus and would easily warrant a re-order.
