Look in Notebookcheck ! They will have the official fps !

I am not having any problem in gaming at my XPS and finished with COD Black ops and Modern warfare 2 . Time to buy and play battlefield .

i own a 6 year old dell inspiron 1501, do i even qualify ? :razz:

Yes it does :p . Well done for keeping that laptop in such a good condition ;)
 
at what setting did you play cod black ops and modern warfare. . . ..
Please specify your laptop's configuration. .. . .

no upgrades at all.
battery life = 9 mins :lol:

Awesome. Keep it running till it's last breath. Ubuntu is worthy candidate for such inspiron. Windows might have killed it already.
Btw guys, is there much difference between i5-2410M and i7-2630QM performance wise. I'm customizing XPS for a friend at the moment. Haven't looked at benchmarks etc yet.

i installed ubuntu in april, before that i had been using windows. i like both the operating systems and the life of my pc has in no way been affected by the OS.
 
regarding xps 15 . . . .Is it good to buy a oversized battery or not ???


BTW which battery did you(xps owners) opt for ????

Bought a Inspiron 15R two weeks ago. It lags a lot with 2GB of RAM and a i3 proccy. I did all i can to optimize the startup and speed but no use. Can adding 2 more GB of RAM will solve this?

BTW, It is not my choice, it is given by my company.

All company laptops in general lag a lot more than they should. If you have a windows disk, do a clean install. Dont install anything you wont be using, anything. Thats my mantra, and it works like a charm :grin:

Install only the absolutely required things. An office suite(custom install), a pdf reader(Anything BUT ADOBE, i like foxit), a fast browser like opera, and some other stuff you cant do without.

A size of around 40GB for the C drive (And set all programs to install on a different partition), disabling windows update (my PERSONAL OPINION), disabling windows indexing utility (use a search program like Ava find) helps a lot.

I have been pretty radical so far, but here's the biggest of them all :twisted:
Dont, repeat dont use an antivirus. Forget the manufacturers claims, none of them are half as useful as they claim to be (unless you are into professional soft. development or net banking)
And dont look for "much" improvement by using those tune up utilities.

I have not installed either the factory supplied audio driver or the bluetooth driver for my lap. and i'm not facing any problems whatsoever..
NB: my personal opinions. you are free to disagree :smile:
