    What have Dell done to the XPS range

    No funky lights anymore!

    Finally I get my hands on a budget, and an agreement for an uber laptop - and they don't do flashy lights on the XPS series anymore!

    That was a great meeting with my Head :

    Me: "Erm, I hate to be cheeky..."
    Head: "I like cheeky, go ahead!"
    Me: "Well I had a chat with the old DH and he said I could look into a superdooper laptop at the end of the financial year along with getting me a budget sorted to streamline operations... so too cheeky?!"
    Head: "Why do you need one better than <STANDARD TEACHER TOSHIBA BOUGHT BY MY LEA PREDECESSOR>?"
    Me: "Blah Blah Blah, Virtual Machines, Blah, Work from home, Blah"
    Head: "OK, how much?"
    Me: "Around £600/£700"
    Head "Oh, that little? Go for a better one that'll last"
    Me: <IN HEAD - WIN!>

    The downside is I now have to buy all the bloody photocopier paper as well.

    Alienware happened to the XPS range which means generally they look rubbish without the lights

    Anyone remember the Dell M2010 (which I think was an XPS model) "laptop"? Was nearer a modern version of the old luggables and I was so close to building one from parts but was missing a working optical drive (Had a BluRay drive for it but it didn't work :| )





    Ahhh, they don't make them like they used to

    I used to have the M1730, it used to be great for late night gaming - no other light source needed. I now have the L502x and it looks like a business user laptop, like a Vostro
