I want to delete my system restore partition:

This is the tricky part (for me at least)
Partition 3 [NTFS] 12.9 GB (12.7 GB Free)
Partition 4 (FAT32) 4.7 GB (546 MB Free)
At first glance, it would make sense that Partition 3 is the backup/restore partition and 4 is the media direct partition. But if that was the case, why would a backup/restore partition only take...
Undervolting and Underclocking are two diffrent things. Underclocking is lowering the frequency while undervolting is lowering the amount of power sent to the motherboard.
I don't think you can undervolt these laptops (as it has to bee changed in the BIOS, and Dell would probably lock it out) and it could lead to crashes and possibly damage. Underclocking is completly safe, reversable, and simple.
I got this one:
I played with it at a local store and you can really feel the much improved quality difference of the materials in this guy and those in Samsonite and Targus cases.

don't feel too bad, this series as not really intended for gaming performance. Even though it is much better than integrated intel, the x1400 is a pretty mediocre video card. It won't run any current games on higher settings.

Any advantage that the Intel solution has in terms of memory bandwidth would come from where it is located (in the chipset) and probably be lost having to share...
Hi guys, I just ordered a 1505 with the stock 512 MB ram. I am considering and upgrade of either 1 GB of ram to bring it to 1.5 GB Single Channel or 2x 1 GB and removing the 512 stick to bring it to 2 GB Dual Channel. I know the performance difference between 1.5 and 2 GB isn't that great, but is the Dual Channel performance increase worth the extra expense? Also is it worth it to go with 667 Mhz Ram instead of 533? Thanks
I plan to used the laptop for web surfing,...
