    I wish that I would have gotten the 13. Carrying this 15 around campus sucks and it doesn't fit in some of my old laptop cases :(

    Through the headphones, it emits background noise when there is no audio... and when there is sound, it will emit small pops and crackles on ocassion. This problem doesn't really bother me, though.

    I just ordered the S15 myself. Got 4GB of RAM and the 320G HDD. I was in the same boat as you with trying to decide but I went with the S15. Just seems to be like a better computer. And the screen is perfect! I have an inspiron 1501 that im on now and its perfect for me. Windows Vista runs great and I just put 2GB of Ram on it. I cant wait to see what the quickness of 4GB has to offer. Go with the Studio! Its an awesome looking laptop!

    Does anyone know about "endorphin"? Its a 3D animation program. Do you think that the dedicated graphics that come with the studio could run that program?

    woot, now I'm a notebook enthusiast!:spinny::laugh:lol

    I've never owned one of the Studio models, so I can't speak to those, specifically. I have owned machines in that size range before, though. The most obvious difference between these machines is the size. To me, 13 inch is the sweet spot for notebook computers. It's large enough to get work done, but small enough to carry around daily.

    I've owned an Inspiron 13 for a little over a month. So far, it seems like an excellent notebook. It's quick, small and seems durable enough. So far, it hasn't given me any problems.

    Admittedly, I'm not someone who really pushes a laptop to its limits, though. So, as long as it handles the basics (web, mail, music, light video encoding), I'm good. I wouldn't expect to do any heavy gaming on this machine.

    I think it really depends... if you have another pc that is in the 15+ range get the 13 if you want one nb i would get the 15
