    Order confirmed for a Dell XPS L502X Direct Base laptop on 30/08/2011 in Mumbai, India. Following is the configuration:

    Intel Core i3 2310M processor 2.10 GHz
    15.6" (39.6cm) HD (1366x768) WLED display with TrueLife(TM)
    4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM (1 x 4GB)
    500GB 7200RPM Hard Drive
    1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 525M graphics with Optimus

    Am basically a student with average multimedia, office and gaming needs. I hope I have made the right choice.

    Any opinions?

    Can't believe my last post in here was around 5 years ago. All things need upgrading eventually so I've replaced my D630 with a E6420! :D

    Specs:

    1600x900 Screen
    Core i5 2540m
    4 GB of RAM
    250 GB HDD (7200 RPM of course!)
    Windows 7 Pro 32 bit....that'll be changed straight away
    NVIDIA NVS 4200M with Optimus switchable graphics
    Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, webcam, backlit keyboard, the whole shebang! :D

    Can't wait for it to arrive! Should be here on friday!

    1st posting on this forum!

    I bought my 1st laptop, a Dell Inspiron 14R (N4110), ard 3 mths back. Original specs were as follows:

    CPU: Intel 2nd Gen Core i5-2410M (2.3Ghz, 2.9Ghz turbo)
    RAM: 4GB Samsung DDR3-1333Mhz SODIMM RAM
    Mobo: Dell OEM Mobo (Intel HM67 Chipset)

    GFX: Intel HD Graphics (from Intel i5-2410M)
    AMD Radeon HD 6630M (1GB GDDR3 VRAM)

    ODD: Internal Slim SATA DVD Writer
    HDD: WD Scorpio Blue 640GB 2.5" SATA2 HDD
    WLAN: Intel Wireless-N 1030



    However, being a modder, i soon made modifications to the laptop. now it's tentatively as follows:

    CPU: Intel 2nd Gen Core i7-2720QM (quad-core, 2.2Ghz, 3.3Ghz turbo)
    RAM: 8GB Kingston DDR3-1333Mhz SODIMM RAM
    Mobo: Dell OEM Mobo (Intel HM67 Chipset)

    GFX: Intel HD Graphics (from Intel i7-2720QM)
    AMD Radeon HD 6630M (1GB GDDR3 VRAM)(overclocked to 680Mhz/880 Mhz, performance slightly exceeds that of the commonly seen Nvidia Geforce GT 540M)

    ODD: Internal Slim SATA DVD Writer
    HDD: 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 SATA3 SSD
    WLAN: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230

    what i like abt this laptop:
    1) CPU fan doesnt spin when CPU chip is cool enough. saves batt and is dead quiet. at idle, believe it or not, CPU temp (after mod) is at 48 deg. fan doesnt spin, so i can use the laptop for normal work with 0dB anytime. the cool temp is also because i reapplied thermal paste for the heatsink contacts.

    2) has 2 X USB3.0 ports for quick data transfer

    now i'm waiting for my secret stash of DDR3-1600Mhz SODIMM RAM to arrive for final build test. :cool:

    I just settled for the 15.6" 720p display because for the same price as upgrading to the B+RG 1080p ($150) I could buy a 23" FHD 1080p monitor. Now I'm realizing that the latter may not be B+RG LCD. Basically I'm asking what exactly does FHD refer to?

    Cheers,

    FHD (Full High Definition) refers to the screen resolution of 1920x1080. It allows for you to play 1080p movies without the black bars of 16:10 screens WUXGA (1920x1200).

    Well you can always buy a professional monitor with higher color gamut, they just cost $$$. They also offer features like a useful stand that can tilt/rotate, and IPS screens.

    I think the actual 1080p swap was 150 + the 1080p LVDS cable (20)

    It wasn't a swap, if by that you mean upgrade, it was the original online purchase. I just got confused and assumed that FHD referred the LED colour rather than just the pixels. Now it's in production and I can't change anything. Is it possible to buy a higher quality display? Everyone seems to agree that the 720p wled is garbage. I mean, at least I'll have a 1080p monitor but I was looking for something with good colour range specifically.
