Dell :: Question About The Upcoming Laptop Releases From

Sep 6, 2009

Just to give a little bit of background: I'm planning on working in a foreign country as early as beginning of November, as late as mid December.

I'm looking to buy a pretty beefy 15-16 inch laptop with top of the line processor but mediocre video card to keep the notebook somewhat cooler. I personally don't mind integrated as long as it's able to play full screen video (1440x900, i would prefer not to have 1900x1080 or 1900x1200) without any issues.

So here's my question to you experts:

1) Are there any upcoming releases of Dell latitude, precision or studio xps laptops that I should be keeping eyes on .....

Dell :: Releases New ATI 4570 Drivers!!! And Fail!

Oct 16, 2009

i couldn't believe that dell has finally released new drivers for our Ati Mobility Radeon 4570!!

Driver 8.631

Release Date: 12 October 2009

I didn't see any benefit really in installing the the mobility modder drivers(was on 9.9). My COD4 was dropping to 20fps on occasions and I only play in 1280x720 with modest settings! I thought that game ran really well even on the Nvidia 8600Ms according to so many people. But COD4 runs pretty badly on my PC, gets my GPU to hit 88C even when I'm letting it breathe and all and makes me kind of depressed.

I uninstalled everything and installed these new Dell drivers. The drivers installed, but the CCC is messed up. See attached picture for the error I get when I try opening it. Clicking on "Advanced View" gets me nothing.. Nothing shows up at all. I reinstalled the 9.9 CCC ONLY, still the same error message.

Anyone else having the same problem? Could you atleast help me with why my 4570 is performing so poorly?

Dell :: Studio 1536 - Upcoming Model Or One That Exists Already Outside Of U.S.

Sep 25, 2008

My new Studio 15 (1535, technically) came with a manual that references a Studio 1536 model in addition to the 1535 and 1735. The Dell Support site also lists three Studio models- 1535, 1536 and 1735.

Based on Dell's model numbering, the 1536 is an AMD-based Studio 15. The manual also noted that one of the graphics options for this model is the ATI Radeon Mobilty HD 3200 which is the integrated graphics processor available with AMD's newest "Puma" processors.

So, I'm trying to figure out if we're going to see a Studio 1536 introduced in the very near future, based on the AMD Puma platform. OR is this a model sold outside of the U.S. market?

It seems logical that Dell would offer an AMD-based Studio 15 to compete against HP's dv5z and Toshiba's A305D models.

Dell :: Scratch On Laptop And Best Laptop Sleeve

Sep 17, 2008

my new dell E6400 just got a small scratch on the lid. It really bothers me because I can see it in most lighting even though it's not a big scratch. Part of the reason why I decided to buy a business line laptop is that it's suppose to be more durable. I have been careful with my laptop and it still got scratched. Does anybody know anything I can do to remove the scratch? Also, what is the most protective laptop sleeve for a 14.1 laptop with a 9 cell battery?

Dell :: New Laptop, What Do I Need To Do?

Dec 24, 2008

I just bought a refurbished Studio 15. Is there anything that anyone of you recommend me doing? I already did a burn in test with "BurnInTest". Actually, everything passed except the DVD drive. I'm going to retest it tonight to see if it fails again. I already ran the battery down to 5%, then charged it back up. Is there anything else I need or should do? This is my first new laptop in 5 years, I want this one to last.

Dell :: Which Laptop To Keep

May 12, 2010

I recently ordered a Dell Studio 1558, thinking I got a good deal after taking about 3 days and talking to several reps, got the order done and all, it is now In-Production.

I went ahead and ordered the Latitude E6510, but since the Studio 15 is in production, I can't cancel, so I'll be getting both laptops, and I can return before 30 days off course.

Can't make up my mind on which one to keep, here's the specs of both:

Studio 1558
i7 720q | 4GB RAM | 500gb 7200rpm HDD | ATI 5470 1GB
15.6 True Life 1080p Screen | 8x DVD-RW | Back-Lit Keyboard | Soundblaster
3yr Advanced Complete Care Warranty | 9 Cell | Win 7 Home Premium X64

Latitude E6510
i5 540m | 4GB RAM | 500gb 7200rpm HDD | Nvidia 3100m 512mb
15.6 Anti-Glare RGB LED 900p Screen | 8x DVD-RW | Back-Lite Keyboard
3yr Basic Warranty (included) + 3yr Complete Care | 9 Cell Battery
Win 7 Pro x64 w/ XP Mode

Dell :: Using Laptop 24/7

Feb 8, 2009

I have never owned a laptop before buying my 1530 and I have to ask this, if I use it every day for work, school, and gaming - will this cause any problems? laptop life shortens?

do you use it all the time? I am thinking of buying a desktop to replace this for everyday use. The vents being placed on the bottom of this laptop don't help much..

Dell :: Choosing A Laptop

Apr 30, 2010

I'm trying to choose a laptop at the moment and I'm finding it hard to do. I primarily want it for gaming and want it to play all the latest and greatest games.

Originally, I wanted an Alienware but I can't justify the price to be honest. Maybe the M11X but I'm not too sure if thats very good for gaming.

These are the laptops I'm looking at:

DELL Studio 17
DELL Studio XPS 16
Alienware M11X

The studio 17 has a 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 560v

The XPS 16 has a 1GB ATI® Radeon™ HD 4670 graphics card
The Alienware M11X has a 1GB GDDR3 NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 335M

Which is the best graphics card out of these? I know theres more to it than just a graphics card but I thought that would be a good place to start. Also, the i7 processor would be best I think so does that cancel out the M11X? Which laptop would you get for gaming? Personally, I'd like the 17 inch screen size as I'm out of college and don't really need the portability anymore - I use my iPhone for most of my web browsing nowadays. Basically, I'm looking for a really powerful gaming laptop for around €1,200.

Dell :: New Laptop En Route, But What Needs To Be Done When It Gets Here?

May 5, 2010

With my Dell XPS Gen 2 on the way out, I've bitten the bullet and ordered a Studio XPS 16:

Intel i7 820QM CPU
Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit
500GB Hard Drive
4GB 1333Mhz RAM
15.6 inch Full HD 1080p LED Edge to Edge Screen
1GB Ati Radeon HD 4670 Graphics

The question is, once I receive it, what's good practice to get the best out of it? I'm guessing reinstalling Windows 7 is a gimmie, but what else?

Dell :: 18.4" Laptop

May 3, 2009

I'm looking for a desktop replacement when I graduate college. I've loved my 17" Inspiron 9300 for the past 4 years, but it's time for an upgrade. My family and I have only ever bought Dells, and we've always been happy with them. Because I'm mostly going to be using the laptop at home, with minimal travel, I'm thinking of an 18.4" laptop. HP has one that looks very reasonably priced, the Sony one is more expensive, but I'm still hoping Dell comes out with one soon. Is there any word that this will be happening? And if not, do you recommend Sony or HP?

Dell :: (Latitude) Laptop

Dec 19, 2008

I need to select a new laptop for work. My company allows Dell only.

Currently, I have a Dell Latitude D610. (yes time to upgrade).

I travel often. Therefore, weight is a factor. I'm not sure if I should go with the 14" or 15" screen. My current 14" seems OK. I need a laptop where I can use a port replicator. I believe that this limits my choices. Some of the models I like from a design standpoint don't seem to offer this.

So, I ended up with:
Latitude E6400
Latitude E6500
Latitude E5500
Latitude E5400

I couldn't really figure out what the difference is between the E5x and E6x.

Dell :: Connecting Laptop To TV

Jan 18, 2009

I have a Dell Xps 1530 with a 1920 x 1080 display. I connected it to my 40" Samsung LCD 720p using an HDMI cable, but its not as crisp as I have seen such connections be at stores. For example the text isn't crisp at all.

Also, I heard that if I connect through an HDMI cable that sound should also be transferred, but when I play something from the laptop the sound comes from the xps rather than the TV.

Dell :: Lojack For Laptop

Mar 26, 2009

On March 13th, I started to go to work and found my back window of my Silverado broken and my xps m1530, missing along with my camera and ipod.

I immediately called the police, then lojack to report the theft. On March 25th, I got call from the police, informing me they had my laptop in their possesion. No camera or ipod though. Police said person bought it "on the open market", and no charges were filed, until further investigation.

Upon receiving the laptop back, I went to the Internet Explorer history and found where the person had went to the manufacturers website for accessories for the digital camera, like charger, docking station, etc. It just so happens, not very many Kodak V610 bluetooth cameras were sold in our area. I called the detective in charge of the case and informed him of this.

He called the suspect and was given a line, about checking kodak for his sister. At 4:00 pm today he called me and informed me he was in posession of my camera and a bunch of other stuff, and the subject was under arrest.
