    Edit:
    Edit to the above (as requested by Ibrahim) 10/15/09...Peep's this really should clear up any confusion.!! Thanks Ibrahim :
    "Dell is having some issues with their invoices, particularly with monitor choice. If you ordered the RGBLED and it says WLED, don't worry: you still have the RGBLED, it is just marked incorrectly. Some users who ordered the RGBLED have these part numbers:

    320-8335
    320-8341
    320-8332




    **Please PM me..if you want anything updated to this post..Thanks.


    ***PLEASE*** Keep discussion in this thread to ownership of the 1645....Questions, Benchmarks, testing, Updates, Noted issues, etc...

    My Studio XPS 16 was delivered to me at 12:05 Eastern Time. I am in the process of doing a clean install of Windows 7 RC as my laptop was installed with Vista. I will have to wait for the Windows 7 Upgrade when I can register the service tag for the free upgrade.

    Cin, thanks for the congrats! :)

    Please install coretemp.exe and let us know what the temps are like. That is all I want to know before I order one.

    - heat
    - battery life

    Pictures of the internals (removed as much as you want), temperatures, and performance measurements would be great!

    I too would love to see it with the back cover off if you are comfortable doing so.

    But give us your first impressions so far!

    Yes, to rehash my post:

    Screw the photos, review it and tell us about heat, battery life, and weight. I know it's fast, I don't care about benchmarks and the rest of the components are the same. I know cosmetically it hasn't changed much, even if they revamped the cooling - but is it good enough to cool it and has it added any extra weight (hope you have an accurate scale)? And if possible, try any undervolting software to see if it works!
