NEW DELL STUDIO 14z LAPTOP PERFECT POWERHOUSE FOR ONLINE GENERATION
· Thin, cool design for those who download media from online
· Powerful, mobile entertainment system combines HD resolution screen with great audio and 500GB1 hard drive option
ROUND ROCK, Texas, May 28, 2009 – For the generation that has grown up with the Internet and can find just about anything online, the new Dell Studio 14z laptop makes it easy to carry their digital world with them. Designed for students and others on the go who demand the perfect balance of mobility and performance, the Studio 14z is a homework-busting system by day and an entertainment powerhouse by night.
It features a svelte design and a huge 500GB1 hard drive option that can store up to 125,000 songs, 142,000 photos or 133 DVD quality movies2. The Studio 14z allows people to watch their favorite movies and TV shows, listen to streaming music with friends, store a vast MP3 collection and socially network from just about anywhere3.
The Studio 14z is the industry's first consumer laptop available with FailSafe™ theft prevention. This option helps protect personal data should the laptop go missing or be stolen. With Failsafe engaged, owners can track network information and the ISP location of the laptop when it connects to the Internet, and get help to remotely erase selected files and render the laptop unusable until the rightful owner unlocks it.
"Young people have grown up with the Internet and can find almost everything they need online." said Michael Tatelman, vice president of Dell's global consumer sales and marketing. "They want a slim, easy-to-carry laptop and like the choice of a larger hard drive over an optical drive. The Studio 14z has the storage and speed that most people need, and it comes with color options that let them truly express who they are."
The Studio 14z comes in six colors: Black Chain Link, Midnight Blue, Spring Green, Plum Purple, Ruby Red and Promise Pink (U.S. only). Dell will donate $5 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® from the purchase of each Promise Pink laptop.
The new laptop also comes with Dell Remote Access4; the optional premium version allows people to access content via their home network of personal computing devices including desktops, laptops, ultra-mobile devices, smart phones and web cameras.
Priced from $649 U.S., the Studio 14z is available now online and over the phone in the U.S. and Canada.

I got my E6500 a few days ago. I played it around for a few days. Now, I try to start this thread another way. Instaed of writing a post giving my own mpressions, please ask questions and I try to answer. Like this I guess it will be more helpful to you guys. I list the main spec here:

I found that we don't have an owner's thread for Acer's latest Gemstone Blue notebook, the 8930G! I got the laptop today and it is a beaut! I got the 6243 model with BluRay.
If anyone here has tweaked it or has some useful tips, post it here! I'm pretty novice in regards to notebooks so it would help me just as much as other members! A quick guide to what to install and uninstall would be greatly appreciated. Also appropriate drivers would be beneficial.
If I'm too new to this board to post an owner's lounge, my apologies.

Just thought I'd try and get a thread going specifically for the Unibody 15". Currently there is only the late 2008 Unibody edition, but I guess in the future we can compile information on newer releases.
I'm hoping we can share all kinds of information regarding this wonderful machine, and that this is a place to ask specific questions, compare feedback, or give tips to users and prospective buyers alike. Feel free to post your questions and/or advice, or failing that, just give a shout out if you're a proud owner...
I was wondering who else out there has a dv6, which model and what you think of it!
I've had my dv6 for a day now, specs in my sig. I've not had a lot of brand new laptops, actually only one before this and few powerful ones, but so far I am very impressed.
I have a couple of things in my device manager that are unknown devices since i installed RC, I have installed the card reader, it's not bluetooth or a tv tuner, does anyone have any idea what it could be? Everything I can think of is installed and working.
I love the design, the white lights, touchpad button and the other buttons, I love the keyboard and touchpad and the lit up HP logo on the top of the lid. The only thing I don't like so far is the headphone/mic jacks are on the front. Otherwise top marks to HP! I can't believe how solid it feels

Edit to the above (as requested by Ibrahim) 10/15/09...Peep's this really should clear up any confusion.!! Thanks Ibrahim : "Dell is having some issues with their invoices, particularly with monitor choice. If you ordered the RGBLED and it says WLED, don't worry: you still have the RGBLED, it is just marked incorrectly. Some users who ordered the RGBLED have these part numbers:
I made this thread for the future release of HP's new diagonally one inch HD 320x180 screen notebook. Being smaller than an IPod Nano, HP will have accomplished nothing. Well, it would be a high tech paper weight. what do you all think about the various sizes of the newer HP notebooks? Are they all really necessary?
I am from Belgium and since yesterday a proud owner of a m1730 After weeks of surfing the net to get the best bang for buck I got myself a brand new m1730 with sli 9800m gt, 6gb ram, a 2,5Ghz duo, blu ray, etc... for just 1839€. Believe me this is very cheap for this laptop in Belgium.
I also game on my Imac (which I bought to do mostly Lightwave and 3d coat) from 2008 with a 8800gs (in reality a 8800m gt) and 3,06 ghz core2duo .....
I have a new Dell M4400 Precision running Windows Vista 64bit. Th only function that works with the fingerprint reader is pre boot and windows log on.
I am not able to log onto web pages or applications. The fingerprint reader (in my case the FIPS unit but both are effected) is not attached to the system and will not detect as a biometric device. The fingerprint reader is connected to a unit called a Broadcom USH (Unified Security Hub). Since the unit is not detected as a biometric device you cannot use it with any fingerprint software such as PSQL (Upek's Protector Suite QL) or the built in software with Windows 7. The only software that it works with is ETS (Wave's Embassy trust Suit) which officially from Wave does not support and will not support 64bits OS. The ETS software however does not work even when a 32bit OS is used, Well at least not work in a practical manner.
I AM IN CONTACT WITH DELL LEVEL 2 SUPPORT AND ENGINEERING. BUT NEED HELP FROM OTHER DELL OWNERS TO FORCE DELLS HAND TO RESOLVE THIS POOR DESIGN FLOOR WHICH ONLY EFFECTS THE NEW DELL LAPTOPS.
FACTS KNOWN SO FAR
1. The Fingerprint readers used are standard USB readers 2. The port on the USH is a standard USB port. 3. The fingerprints are stored in the fingerprint unit. 4. The fingerprint reader will still work with the TPM disabled 5. The FIPS and HSPD security is part of the UPEK reader and has no bearing on the broadcom USH. 6. It is the USH that is blocking the fingerprint from Windows. 7. Up until approx 10 days ago Dell did not see this as an issue. But now see it as a high priority to resolve and are talking about developing a 64bit ETS. 8. Being able to use PQSL with the FIPS reader would resolve issues. Allowing webpage logon and application logon as all previous Dell units did. 9. The FIPS reader is supported by PSQL 2009 confirmed by UPEK. 10. Not confirmed only commented by a UPEK Tech that they are trying to resolve the broadcom compatibility issue that effects Dell. 11. The Broadcom USH controls the Smartcard and Contactless smartcard readers. The fingerprint reader is only connected to a USB port on this device which is restricted from the system. Like a locked port on a USB hub. 12. Which with out Dell owners speaking up as a whole Dell engineering will not listen to the Dell Pro support.
HOW WE CAN FIX IT
After speaking with UPEK and Dell pro support is is confirmed that this solution will resolve the issue of the fingerprint reader not being a biometric device and all of the problem associated with this simple fact.
If Dell engineering was to update the firmware on the Broadcom USH allowing the USB port that the fingerprint reader is attached to be seen by the system then all would be resolved and windows would see the fingerprint reader as a biometric device instead of Broadcom USH w/ fingerprint touch sensor. This would work the same way a USB port on a hub sees a device. For example a memory stick on a USB hub intergrated into a keyboard is not seen as a "Keyboard w/memory stick".
Dell pro support has already requested the update from Engineering and was told they are looking into a 64bit ETS. This does not add inbuilt support for windows 7. Unless Dell owners speak up together and in numbers ENGINEERING WILL NOT LISTEN. So please reply to this post if you are not able to use your new fingerprint unit in the practical way that a HP, Acer, Toshiba or owner of another brand laptop can.
I just purchased a tt290yab with 1.4ghz blueray and all the trimmings. So I though I would post and introduce my self...
After owning a vaio P as my sole machine for a year this thing flys even with vista installed and untweaked.
I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice, things I could tweak... Best video playing software etc.. ?
Also my laptop came refurbished and has the noise cancelling capability but I don't have the headphones. Anyone know where I can get some? Or the part number for them so I could call sony? I tried the ones from my vaio P but they dont work.
