Take it with Visa business and then use the downgrade rights from microsoft to instal XP Pro quite legally if you wish.
See my blog sidebar for a link to the MS site on downgrade rights.

And your point was what exactly?

That you could get Dell to put XP on it automatically for you :)
#9
I'd change the RAM configuration to single channel so that it's cheaper to upgrade in the future too

hi, how does this physically work? All it says is "End users must use a legally licensed version of the specifi ed previous version of the Windows desktop operating system to install the downgrade software. The downgrade software may be from the retail, OEM/System Builder, or volume licensing channels." Do dell supply it with the system or is it a phone call?
#12
as far as I know GeForce 8400M GS is 128 mb, not 256 mb, or mayby I'm wrong?
#13
Why don't you want Vista?
#14
LOL - it hardly gets the most favourable feedback as bloated and slow!

TBH, i havent used vista yet, but i would like to have the option of XP as i want to run Visual studio with sql 2005/2008. My colleague has been having problems on his new work laptop with VIsta home and sql2005 (though this will be my personal machine, not my work laptop) So 2gb probably isnt enough memory to start with - my current work laptop struggles with a C2D 1.6ghz and 2gb on xp, i doubt it will like vista

I've got Vista Ultimate 64 bit SP1 and it's fine.

The thing is, it's NOT bloated when you consider what your money buys in terms of spec:

In 2000 when I got a P3 800, RAM was £120 for 128MB. Hard drive was £115 for 15GB. Windows 98 used about 35% of RAM idling and about 500MB space for install (3.3%).

Today, for £120, you get 8GB RAM and for £120 (easily!), 1TB of hard disk. Vista Ultimate in Aero uses 950MB RAM and 14GB hard disk (12% RAM use and 1.3% hard drive space ... ).

Therefore, Vista is comparatively more efficient than Windows 98, when we compare like-for-like purchasing power in the hardware that runs it.

Good deal - voted hot.

Went for base spec plus better screen (£50), webcam, single mem chip, bluetooth

I dont think comparing 10 year old software/hardware with todays offerings is a realistic comparison. 10 years is several generations in terms of technology. For a more realistic comparison, you ought to compare whats available today i.e. Windows XP, OS X, Ubuntu etc and there's no doubt Vista is more resource hungry and takes up more disk space than all the other options available today.

However, back to the point. Great deal (Regardsless of XP or Vista install) and heat added!

Lol, that's funny :-D

Yes a great deal at a great price.

Though these new Vostro models look a little cheap build quality- & design-wise compared to the previous series. According to the info on Dells' website the chassis is apparently still made from the same magnesium-alloy material as the other series.

As MikeT pointed out to me there's only 1 speaker on these newer machines.

Still for the spec & price voted HOT.

I am a huge fan of Dell and have been buying notebooks from the for years, but the new range has got to be the single most ugly range of laptops I have ever seen. The Inspiron 1500 I bought 3 years ago looks sleeker and more appealing than these, and their shell doesn't come anywhere near the case used for the Vostro 1300, 1500 and 1700.

Just thought it might be of interest to those who rank looks quite highly when selecting a laptop.

Dual core processors are much better off with dual channel memory. You're actually downgrading it when changing it to single channel

tbh, i was considering the XPS which is sleeker, but its like a car - when your driving, and you want to go fast, , you can see the outside!!

Dual core processors are much better off with dual channel memory. You're actually downgrading it when changing it to single channel

as i understand it, its 667mhz memory and as the FSB is 800 i can upgrade to 1x2gb, 1x1gb all 800mhz. Will sell the memory on ebay

also http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/parallel-processing,1705-11.html - there is a few % performance difference single v dual
#24
Can someone please tell me what the difference is [other than looks] between the XPS M1530 and Vostro M1530? Looking for laptop which can play games. Thanks

LMAO. Who actually cares what the numbers say? All that matters is what happens in PRACTICE. Sadly, in practice, it feels bloated and slow. To use nearly a gig of RAM just for the ('ultimate') UI is retarded. Only 9 year-olds care about transparency and flashy animations when they open a folder. Also, retailers don't help the situation by supplying laptops with 1GB of RAM and Vista installed. It's just ridiculous. Microsoft knows that Vista is an EPIC FAILURE (at least so far). But its ego stands in the way of admission.

P.S. What you're basically saying is that components have become cheaper to make. As far as I am aware, this is not due to Vista :)

as good as the mispriced one :) rep & heat

No I think thats just the 1310 that has one speaker, they are all stereo via headphones.

I'm on a Dual Core T2060 and Vista runs like a beast on it. Not a single problem here for me, I could only imagine how fast it would run on C2D although I don't see the need in upgrading yet.

hey Mike, whats the diffence between

[FONT=arial][SIZE=1]Dell™ Wireless 360 Bluetooth® Module (Vista) and

[/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=arial][SIZE=1]Dell™ Wireless 360 Bluetooth® Module (xp)

Is that mean that if you buy the vista one and you downgrade your laptop than bluetooth won't work!!! ( or other way round). which s the best
thanks

Excellent deal, ordered one for my sister.

As far as I am aware the 360 module is just that and the only difference is the drivers for the OS.

See this page for some cheap delivered modules and read the sidebar as xp has an advantage with better drivers atm.

Well sounds like your computer is the problem. It's absolutely spot on for me and millions of others. Yeah, there are some problems, but XP has many itself. I still use XP more than Vista, for the simple reason that some of my software is not yet Vista compatible, but I have a dual boot to 64 bit and it's great.

As for the other person saying "don't compare older with current" etc ... why not? All I was doing was comparing what we had then with now.

People bitch about Vista because they don't like change. What I am saying, is that Vista does use a lot of resources. What I am also saying, is that it doesn't use comparitively as much in terms of resources as people think. Most of the idiots are trying to run it on 512MB and 1GB and wondering why Aero won't run smoothly.

Who's to blame? Tight arsed retailers then, eh?
#36
Thanks Mike. Great help on that. I think I will go ahead with that.
#37
Is this an online offer only, or do you reckon you could phone up and try to get a bit knocked off on the screen upgrade and web cam? Any thoughts on whether to go for the anti-glare screen or truelife one? (anti-glare 1440x900 is £30+vat, truelife is £50+vat)?

Yeah sorry obviously a slight misunderstanding there.

Specs for the 1510 can be found here :

http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/vostronb_1510?c=uk&cs=ukbsdt1&l=en&s=bsd&~ck=anavml

And it does say that there are 2 internal stereo speakers when you click on the 'tech specs' tab :thumbsup:

You could try phoning them & see what they say.

As for the screen isn't the anti-glare option just the same or similar to the non-glare matt finish you tend to get on LCD screens ?

If you don't mind relections on the screen & will be able to avoid these I think the TrueLife gives a nicer colour representation. You could always nip into your local Tesco Extra & have a look at what TrueLife looks like on the Inspiron models they have. I think Currys also stock Dell now so you could pop into there :thumbsup:

I,ve looked at the comparisons between Vista home premium & Vista business.
Why dont dell offer that you can change the OS to premium from business?
I want the media centre bits that are inc with Premium but not with business.
