    Ok, then "Studio XPS"? And there are countless of others "gorgeous/superb" and so on words to add with characters "XPS" or without. But not just XPS, especially when supposedly new Inspiron line is now successor of old XPS (Bill, isnt it a little bit too messy?:confused:). And so rename the new Inspiron then "Inspiron XPS"? I have seen old Inspirons in e-shops called "Inspiron XPS":D ...
    About Adamo - it wasnt a bad laptop, especially for "average user", who arent interested in gameing and similar activities and are atracted moustly with look and pricecheck (same with new XPS!). And they are majority of consumers. Look at Adamos score on notebookcheck.net (13" 86% and 15" 83%; for comparison L502X 84%). Why it was "flop" then? One of the reasons for certain price...

    i was tempted too, but then I saw a display model in store and even that one was hot. Reviews I've read say the same thing, it gets pretty warm it was much hotter than my XPS 15

    If you really wanted to reuse previous name, that's defninitely the name that crossed my mind... But maybe they felt it was too soon to revive this name? Studio XPS would have made more sense to me! A new name could have been a good idea too, specially when launching a new kind of product. I would have given it the name of a fruit, like "guava" maybe :rolleyes:.
    I would have loved "orange", because then we could have said : "Stop comparing apples and oranges" hahaha

    Yeah.. I remember seing Inspiron XPS..... Maybe that's the name they should have aimed for, with the new Inspirons SE...

    Adamo... you got it right... the price made no sense, which is why I call it a flop. And it's also the "dangerous" game Dell is playing with the new XPS... Another parrallel between the two I guess. Although I believe this time the price is better justified (not completely) then it was with Adamo.

    True, and I absolutely agree with you on that!

    As long as you remember that "properly" dosen't mean what's expected, historically, of a "XPS" laptop! It's confusing a lot of people outside of here!

    Again, like there already someone stated - "throw away" ODD and add second fan for better cooling (and add option for external ODD on Dell site). Its year 2012, physical discs are "history". Or mayby not, yet...:D . But online services are future and without physical medium...
    I too was thinking of upgrading, but now its on "freezed" state, at least till rev.2

    Guys...it's a multimedia laptop....how can a laptop be "multimedia" if it doesn't have a blu-ray drive...and as I said before, one does not buy a <1 inch laptop to carry a bag of stuff with it...

    This is one long whine-fest. One of the few threads on here that has to be constantly moderated due to poster reports. Enough is enough, don't you agree? Sure you do.

    And don't think to bring this whine-fest to the owner's thread. Any complaints from owners about non-owners in that thread will result in infractions and bans. :)


    BTW: There's no such thing as free speech anywhere on the planet. Look into it. All laws regarding speech have boundaries. Freedom of speech is a misnomer.

    ...And for those conspiracy theorists out there who think NBR's mod team takes directives from Dell, you've got another thing coming. You couldn't be more wrong. Every rep or reseller here knows that we won't protect their image nor censor posts on their behalf that they may deem as unfavorable to their respective company's image. They participate on these forums at their own risk.
