Can anyone tell me in what ways is the inspiron 15r special edition better than the normal inspiron 15r....on similar config ..i.e...i5, 4gb ram, win 7 home premium, 1TB (5400rpm) hard disk, 15.6" display(1366X768).
will be using laptop for programming(may use MATLAP,GIMP, Fireworks) , light gaming (FIFA12,NFS Carbon,CS source), movies (occasionally)
the inspiron 15r cost 50K and the special edition 55K...is it worth the xtra 5K??:confused:

can any one here confirm if dell still uses its "special recharging mechanism" or not?those who don't know dell used an id chip in mobo near charging jack which receives an identification signal from an identical chip in power adapter confirming that adapter is of dell.if for some reason this signal is not received or processed correctly either due to technical problems in mobo recharge circuit or adapter or trying to use a non-dell adapter the laptop battery will not be charged giving error message "unrecognized adapter".

playing crysis2. Damn. Okay the 7730m may not be mighty but it is certainly better than my desktop gpu. Game is looking amazing and frame rates are silk smooth. Maybe its the new drivers too.

Were you playing on battery?Bcos theres an option of High Performance vs Better Power Saving which chooses HD4000 in power saving mode!!
Even if a game(exe) is set to high performance , if on battery(in default settings) it will use only HD4000!!Do check this..

Having a great time. Crysis 2 gaming after 2 hours on maximum settings. Temps were between 72C to 78C :)

Thats great!!
Are you using any cooling pads??Or is it AC room??How/where do you place your lap ...can you post a snap of it?:)
