I have had numerous problems with my E1705 since the day I bought it in April '06. I had my 7800 Go 3 times before they swapped it out with a 7900gs. A couple months after getting my 7900gs the motherboard died and the system would no turn on. I had to send my system in and they swapped the mobo. upon return I noticed they sent me a 6 cell battery and not a 9 cell battery. The wireless card then started to randomly go out and they only way to get it to work again was to restart the computer. Restarting the computer also presented its own problem, they system will not restart or shut down. I have to hold the power button to do so. Then I noticed that while I am using the system the screen will randomly go black for a few mins and then come back on. I ended up getting sick with all the problems and called Dell again. I demanded a system exchange as I am sick of my E1705 and all the problems I have been having. They finally agreed to do a system exchange but said they no longer make the E1705 and would be sending me something else but did not state what that would be. I also told them that I must have a computer that has DVI out as I need it for school. I cant wait to see what they will send me. I hope I get as lucky as Rickybronco did and get a M1730 =). Anyone have any ideas on what they might send me?
