Dell's website shows the Carbon cover to look really nice. However, when you get it, it's UUUUGLY. It's not a solid black color as shown in the pictures. It's actually a dark/light checkered pattern of blacks. I hated it.
Thanks for the benchmark link
Looks like the Go 1400 is faster than the X1400... should have bought the Latitude version of the E1505 after all... I like the Latitude's features more, but was worried about its gaming performance. Oh well.
The Inspiron and Latitude laptops, though similar systems, have different graphics cards.
So, I was wondering -- what is the difference between the Mobility Radeon and the Quadro? I know the latter is for more professional workstation work. However, what makes it more suited for "professional" work? How is it in terms of 3D gaming?
It expires July 2007. The same key code also works for the RC1 they'll be releasing in a few months or less.
Vista is sweet. I like it if you take the time to dig around deeply enough. Some of the features are still annoying as heck, but we'll have to see how MS balances it all out for the final version.
The only thing I can report at this point is that yes, it indeed does get pretty hot. I wouldn't be surprised if somebody sues Hitachi and/or Dell for providing a "dangerous product" that could potentially burn a victim.
In any case, my drive actually reached 62 Celsius the other day. I'm glad I'm not running the laptop on my lap... for now. My work-around solution is to use a laptop cooler between you and the system.
I don't think there'll be a solution to cool down...
