you can change what that switch turn's on and off, you can turn bluetooth of in windows by right clicking the bluetooth icon in the system tray and select turn of bluetooth. oh and the media direct partition is only about 4 gig, but you could make it bigger if you wanted to install XP on it
thanks for that. but what i want to know is how to change what that button turns on and off.
Well it may not be possible. I assume the button is coded in the BIOS to boot to a selected partition when you press it. So your only option might be to mess with your hard drive partitions. See what makes the Media Direct partition special and make windows look like that.
Personally I do not think it is worth the hassle. You just have to select it from a boot selection list, it only takes a second.
you can put the instal disk in and when it asks you were you want to instal it at select the media direct partition. (it's like 01000mediadirect), but it's only 4 gig so you will have to resize the partition.
Do you believe the recent reports that Dell will soon release a 15" version, the XPS M1530? Allegedly it will be lighter than the M1330, despite the larger screen.
Sure, I think it's fairly likely (there's a gaping hole in the "mobile" 15" segment in Dell's lineup), but I'm not sure where you get the info that it'll be lighter. I don't think it's even theoretically possible - the LED display that the M1330 has is already about as light as they can get, and adding 2" will definitely be higher. The rumours I heard were in the low 2.xx kg range, or approx 4lbs WITHOUT a battery.
