Looking For A New Laptop? And A Media Device? Dell Studio 14 & 15

I’ve actually always liked the Dell Studio series of laptops every since they launched, they look good, have high quality screens and great multi-media capabilities.

These things are highly important to me! Being a photographer I need the ample CPU power and RAM to run Photoshop, I need a high quality screen to ensure I can process my RAW shots correctly and of course plenty of space to make sure the pics are kept safely.

The second set of advantages to me for the new Studio series is the multi-media abilities! I’m a HUGE media consumer, and nowadays mostly hi-def stuff so these laptops are great as they come with an option of having a Blu-ray drives and a sharp 720p resolution screen (1366×768 pixels).

They also pack some pretty solid graphics power so you don’t get laggy playback (ATI Mobility Radeon HD5470 or ATI Mobility Radeon HD5450 – both 1GB versions). Combine that with the HDMI-out port and you can play back media directly to your Full-HD 50″ Plasma TV!

And well the last is the Studio series just looks good! With a choice of both colour and design you can really have it exactly how you want.

The price of both Studio 14 (T510401MY) and Studio 15 (T510446MY) will be RM3,999 starting from 30th July 2010. These are the two β€œbest” pre-configured Studio laptops Dell is offering that comes with a Blu-ray drive. These two bundles will come with

  • Core i7 – 7400QM
  • Genuine Windows Premium
  • 6GB memory
  • 640GB hdd
  • 1GB video card

However these are not the starting price of Studio 14 and Studio 15. If you are a bit more price conscious, the Studio 14 actually starts from RM 2,899 (T510141MY) and the Studio 15 price starts from RM2,999 (T510144MY) with an i5 processor, less RAM and smaller HDD.

These deals are only available on dell.com.my and not at PIKOM PC Fair retailer booth. Customers have to either buy it online or call Dell directly at 1800-88-0301.

    I have been using Dell machines for a very long time already, so far none of them have really let me down, just bought a desktop version recently as well for home basic use.

    I don’t know..I can be a pretty heavy duty user, and though I like the look of Dell, they really never lasted long. Bloody hell, every year replaced a new one, for 4 years. And they weren’t just getting slow, keys would be falling off, screen flickering, all kinds of weird noises.

    I don’t think I can ever trust Dell again.

    andymervingeorge: Yah some pretty high end stuff.

    KY: Yah awesome!

    Mark: Yah generally quite solid.

    Lainie: Yah they’ve had ups and downs but honestly since they bought Alienware outright I truly believe they have the know-how to make higher end laptops now.

    My Inspiron is still alive and kicking after 4 years. No hiccups at all. Amazingly. I trust Dell more than any other brands out there. My Vaio is having “heat” problem and its not even a year old. Bugger.

    @Lainie : I had an XPS 1210 before my current XPS16 and I can tell you, it was solid…but thats my experience.

    Best thing about Dell is the after sales support πŸ˜€ Got a problem, they come to your door!

    LeiF: That’s good to hear! Yah Vaio can be a bit unreliable, expensive too!

    G: Yah they do repairs real fast.
