Hirens and some other "Ultimate Boot" were favs of mine. Havent needed them in a while but they were quite handy. Moving forward I think it better to have those on bootable USB
I also am unable to help the OP though.
but i7? Really?
There is some debate about which processor exactly will be used and what that will mean in terms of performance. I suspect the biggest gains might be in non game applications.
Good news is that I doubt they made...
Do some reading on what the gains are with those processors. By waiting you might be able to get the i-series at the same cost as current model. I doubt it but possible.
Current models might keep dropping in price too - bonus!
Thanks! I have a theory about the KBs that is the kb frame gets warped or bent. I should have taken a closer look at it when apart to see how it was made.
Anyway what little bit I see in the KB is very minor. If it bothers me later...
Non paid version of 3dmark06 to test with. No optimizing or sweating over details and driver versions
Windows Performance Index = 3.2
Nothing done, no OC or even finished with Win7 config. integrated video
I mentioned there were issues... yes! Its true! Lets tell the whole story though:
The Dell store (authorized reseller) had a friendly sales staff so things went quite smooth.
Nearly anything is negotiated in Malaysia and laptops...
