    Just tested the screen replacement I bought for my XPS M1210 and it seems like the old screen isn't the problem. I ordered a new inverter to see if it will help (only 15$) but the next step is to bake the motherboard. If that doesn't work, I'll order a new one.

    New laptops are just too expensive, big and underwhelming (performance wise). It's just not worth spending 1500$

    I've been itching to get a new laptop for a couple years, but I agree with you, they just aren't worth the price premium.

    Get a used laptop of eBay. Preferably one of the Lenovo or HP business series. They are built like tanks and if you get ones that's just a year old it's got plenty of life left in it. My current one is a HP 2710p which was used for 11 months and cost me 300£'s. That's a 65% discount compared to a new one with the same specs.

    My XPS is a 12". I just don't understand why you can't get a high performance, small factor laptop anymore.

    Or maybe I haven't looked hard enough.... Doesn't matter though, I don't have the money :-/

    At that money you'd be daft not to !

    I wasn't prepared to pay full price for one, but at £89 notes if I don't like it I can either sell it on again or give it to my old man for travelling.

    It's cheap because it's a B Grade, usually means customer returns under distance selling, ordered mine on my credit card, get paid on Friday so I can pay it off right away. That and I'm calling it an early birthday present :)

    Fixed, ergo inherited/own a HP Pavillion ZD8000 laptop from 2005 or so - POS but runs Linux Mint like a charm, so I'll be happy until the day it rolls over and dies on me - only problem is a niggly power jack - no battery life, so if the lead accidentally gets unplugged, dead laptop - so next payday will see me ordering a new battery for the lappy, and maybe a bigger hard drive... Hey ho...

    Also bought 5 Space Marine Terminators, and a load of bitz for Black Templars
