Dell Studio 15 Or Macbook Pro 15

Which laptop is better for an interior design student? Dell studio 15 or macbook pro 15? I will be starting university next year and will be doing a course in interior design and need to know which laptop is best suited for me. The ideal notebook would have to cater for my interests which include word processing, web surfing, watching movies, music, photoshop, editing/producing films, playing basic games (such as wow) and on-the-go portability. After much searching i've narrowed it down to two much disputed laptops; the dell studio 15 and the macbook pro 15. Which laptop would be best suited for my tastes?

Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, Or Imac?

There is a site that i have been using for a while where you can redeem points for prizes. I've been saving for a while and now i can afford almost everything. They have apple products as prizes and i was interested in getting one, but i'm not sure which. Should i go for a 21. 5 inch imac desktop a 13 inch macbook air or a 13 inch macbook pro? My family already has an imac, but my sisters or dad are usually on it, so i can't use it very often. I like the mobility of the macbooks which allows me to use it anywhere around the house, but i would probably be able to put the imac in my room as a private computer which would still be nice. I don't really know the differences between the macbook air or pro, so i'm not sure which one out of those two. The imac and macbook air are both 2500 points while the macbook pro is 1750, but the price doesn't really matter because i have enough for either, and i probably won't use the site after this. Which one is the best?

Macbook Or Macbook Pro Or Windows Pc?

Im going into year 11 in high school and i want a laptop for my birthday. Here are my options:

1. Get a macbook- because its the cheapest and i like the colour

2. Get a macbook pro 15- because of the bigger screen, better performance, better memory etc. But i'd have to pay the extra 650 from my own money

3. Wait until i go to university to get a macbook (even though i can't wait for 3 years)

4. Forget about the whole macbook idea and get a pc

Confusion!

I really don't know what to do because i have my heart set on getting a macbook but i don't know if i need one and even if i do get one id want the pro which means spending my money (650 is a lot extra to spend on a laptop). I would be using it for schoolwork, internet browsing, music, watching films and general entertainment for holidays/traveling. What do you think i should do?

If you think i should get a pc, can you recommend any that are just like macbooks please?

Dell Studio Laptop - The Battery Is Not Recognized By Dell

My dell studio laptop says "the battery is not recognized by dell" and will not charge. ? Can you help me and tell me if there is something wrong with this brand of laptop or is it just a problem with my laptop. If so is there any way to fix it? Also: the charger i am using currently is not the one that came with the laptop, it is a universal charger. But the original charger does not work either.

Which Laptop Is Better Hp Or Dell ?

Which laptop is better dell or hp?

Answer:- they both suck- hp consistently ranks last in customer satisfaction and laptop reliability, and dell just got in big trouble over knowingly selling faulty computers. Between the two, i'd say dell is better- they're at least a bit more reliable and i can't stand hps trackpads. Hp has basically turned to selling cheap apple knockoffs. If you can afford it, you're better off getting a mac and installing windows on it. Or get an asus or a toshiba.

No Power To Dell Laptop

My daughter has a dell inspiron 2600 laptop. She used it and everything was fine, but she let it set for a couple of weeks and when she went to use it again, there was no power. The power cord is plugged in, but no lights and nothing happens when you push the power button. I put a different battery and power cord on, that i know is good and still nothing happens. It is just as if the battery is dead and it is not hooked up to ac at all. What could have caused this problem, and what can be done about it?

Dell Laptop Crashing

Anyways, here's the problem. My sister has a laptop that she uses for college, she's not exactly tech savvy, so she waited until she got home to tell me that she has a problem. I'm not sure how or when it started, only that it didn't do this when she first bought it. What happens is at various random times when not plugged in, the comp shuts down. No blue screen, nothing like that. When you reboot there's no *did not shut down properly*, it just loads up like normal. Now, this doesn't necessarily happen after long use, it doesn't even have to be "hot" for this to happen. Now, none of this happens when it is plugged in, but similarly, sometimes when it is plugged in, and you unplug it, it will shutdown and be unable to turn back on until you plug it back in. Any clue? Is this just a faulty battery?

New Dell Laptop Problems

So i bought a dell inspiron 1545 on black friday last year and it is having some problems already. It isn't even a year old :/ but it has a one year warranty so that's good?

The problems are:

- Sometimes, i can hear the bottom 'crackling'
- The dvd drive doesn't work very well
- It restarts itself
- Occasionally, it will say (a file name) corrupted when i start it up
- The flash slows things down a lot
- It will freeze
- The mouse pad's left side button is bent down?
- This one is hard to explain but it acts like i am pressing the 'ctrl' button when i am not. For example, when you press crtl+t it opens a new tab, so sometimes when i am typing a letter 't', it will open a new tab or when i am typing an 's' it opens the save thing and etc. I am probably going to call the dell support thing tomorrow morning. Do they give you money back, a new laptop, or something else if it is in fact not working properly? And also, when do you think is wrong with it?

Dell, Toshiba, Or Hp Laptop?

I'm in the market for a laptop (my first) to last me at least 5 years with no problems or need for repair. I'm interested in purchasing either a dell, toshiba, or an hp (originally i wanted a macbook, but i've heard that that's not the best choice for a biology major-the compatible software is not as good?), But i don't know which one is best. I'm willing to pay up to $1200 as long as it has the following specifications:

-Built-in webcam
-Long-lasting battery (at least 5 hours)
-Best processor (fast with good performance)
-4gb memory
-At least 16" screen
-It must be quiet
-Must last me at least 5 years
-Dvd/cd drive (no blu-ray necessary)

Also, i'm not a big gamer (i like sims and nancy drew games, but other than that i really am not big into computer games). Please let me know if this request is even possible or if i need to lower my expectations! But please help me figure out which laptop to purchase!

Dell Laptop Wont Turn On

I have an old dell inspiron 7000 that just stopped turning on a while back. When i plug the adapter into the wall (not connected to the computer) the green light comes on and everything seems fine. However, as soon as i plug it into the computer the green light goes out and begins to blink every few seconds. Of course the computer wont charge or turn on or anything. I called dell and they just said it was a motherboard problem which seems to be too programed of an answer. I was kinda hoping that its just the adapter and i can just go get another one. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks for any help on this one.

Dell Laptop Hdd Upgrade

Ok, so my dell laptop came with a 7200rpm 120gb hdd which is fine and dandy. But it's been getting a little cluttered lately (at one point i had 16mb free, now i'm out to 23gb). So i'm looking into expanding. I see that newegg has a 320gb seagate 5400rpm drive for only $100 and it's quite enticing. So here's my question. If i upgrade, i'll probably dual boot vista/ubuntu, and possibly triple boot throwing in os x leopard for funsies. My question is, for convenience sake, instead of having to mess with weird cloning methods (weird because i'd need an external enclosure for the new drive to clone) could i instead just install vista fresh on the new hdd and then use the full system restore i've created in vista to then restore it back as if nothing changed?

After that's set, i'd go on with the multi-boot fun.

How To Unlock A Dell Inspiron Laptop ?

Answer:-

Which system do you use?

On windows xp, try this:

Boot computer and press ctrl+alt+delete twice when you see windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press enter and you should be able to login windows. Now you can reset your account password from "control panel -> user accounts". If that doesn't or you use windows 7 or vista, try this:

1. Enter a computer that can link to internet. Download windows password recovery tool 3. 0 and install the software on that computer. 2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions. 3. Eject the created cd/dvd and insert it into the locked computer. 4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's bios setting to make it boot from cd drive) and then follow the instructions to reset your password. 5. Now login windows and set a new password.

How Long Dell Take To Deliver Laptop ?

I've found lots of other questions/answers where people said it could take a week for dell to deliver a laptop, and some where it said 2-3 weeks. I'm wondering if anybody recently - this month preferably - ordered a dell laptop or if you know their current production times. I ordered a customized studio xps 16 laptop on august 12th, and the estimated delivery date is august 25th with next day shipping. The problem is my college orientation starts august 26th, and i'd like to have the laptop before i leave for college. Anybody have an idea if august 25th is accurate or if it will come sooner or later?
