    Sorry if it's tagged somewhere and I've missed it. But does anyone know the model of 2933mhz ram that works for the area 51m and where I could get it? Everything I've seen so far makes it seem like it's machine specific.

    Yes it is hardcoded so that only specific model is supported, you either:1. Stick with 2400 speed. 2. Buy a 3000/3200 kit and flash it to 2933 kit. 3. Buy it pre-flashed from someone

    I know it has been recommended before but can I have an update on HOW to change the battery settings to charge to 80/90%.
    Do I then use off AC power until down below 80% after changing settings and then plug in AC power again?
    What is recommended battery saving wear settings?
    (My old Sony just went from excellent to good and always had it 100% on AC power.... just changed to 50% on AC power to hopefully keep it going)

    So how good is dell with their warranty/damage insurance? I got 3 years left on mine......
    Had a bit of a mishap, and it seems my 4 year old managed to crush the top right corner, cracking my screen in a small spiderweb. Bent the corner a bit too. Thinking he knocked it off the table when he was home with mom and she says she doesn’t know.

    All you need to do is change the battery mode from Adaptive to Custom, touch nothing else, it is set to stop charging at 90% by default and start charging at 50%

    You can order from dell the specific A-Data modules for your machine (for a lot of money). Or try your luck and modify your own memory module's SPD data and use them. There is no big improvement in practice but it is a good feeling when you maxed out your machine. If you are interested in this mod, then first read back in this forum, we have a couple of description here and if you have more question just feel free to ask us.

    Here you can find the changes in memory speed: http://forum.notebookreview.com/attachments/aidacachemem_compare-jpg.188449/
