Dell Shows Off New Studio 14z Notebook
The new Studio 14z is hip, hop and stylishNetbooks might be the order of the day, but notebooks are still very much in and Dell’s new Studio14z notebook affirms this fact. The svelte 14in notebook is sexily slim and available in six different colours.
The Studio 14z comes with two CPU options in the form of a dual-core Intel Pentium or Core 2 Duo up to the T9550 processors. The big 500GB HDD provides loads of storage space, while NVIDIA’s GeForce 9400M GPU provides high quality graphics for the best gaming and movie experience.
The new notebook is also the first to feature the FailSafe theft prevent technology, which keeps data on the machine safe by allowing deletion via the internet even after it is lost or stolen. On the dimensions side, the 14in notebook is pretty slim, with thickness ranging from 0.79in to 1.2in. The LED-backlit display with a 720p/900p resolution provides excellent viewing without draining the battery.
Also included are a 1.3MP webcam and standard 6-cell battery; users also have the option to upgrade to an 8-cell battery for an extended run time of 6:46 hours. The Studio 4z comes with standard Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, eSATA connectivity and up to eight USB 2.0 ports. Entertainment comes through the 4W SRS 2.0 sound system with a woofer, which delivers thumping music and sound. To achieve the light 4.3 pounds weight, Dell has removed the optical drive and is offering it as an external option.
Dell has priced the hip and stylish notebook at an attractive $649 and will be donating $5 from the sale of each machine to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.

Never had the need to build a pc til the K7 age, cos I was a commodore boy. Soldering wize was audio stuff mostly and microprocessors in school.

1st bunch of AMD Athlon stuff I got with the help of a m8 of mine cos he'd used a pc about 6 months longer than me - he spilt coke over it after it was built. >.<

It didn't effect it tho - what effected it was the psu was duff. The 350W or so Hiper I got after that lasted aggggeeeessss.

Can't remember at what point oc'ing came into it. I mean I know the amiga went up by something like 12mhz thanks to some weird mod thing, sheesh.

I know OC3D egged me on a bit mind. Used to be more interested in programming and decent OSes b4 I got a pc.

Gonna be building my first gaming pc in about 2 or 3 day

My first system build was a Q6600 based system.
My first CPU overclock was a Q6600
My first GPU overclock was an 8800GTS G92
My first watercooling was using most of the same components from my first build (CPU, motherboard, ram, etc etc).

First system build was my current rig (added some upgrades though)
First overclock was my AMD Athlon 2400+ which I pushed to 2.8GHz (Found OC3D by doing it :D)
First GPU Geforce Ti 4200 something like that

First system I ever overclocked was a Compaq 486DX which iirc ran at 33mhz stock. By means of moving a jumper I managed to overclock it to 50mhz but it rapidly overheated and needed the lid off in order to stay stable

First system i built with my fairy soft hands was an AMD Athlon K6-2. I cant quite remember the specs now, but I think it had something along the lines of 512mb Ram, a Soundblaster 16, some SCSI HDD's + Plextor CD-RW and a pair of Voodoo2's in SLI. Was the mutts nuts for quite some time :)

Miss the old days a lot tbh.

My first system build was a P3 900MHZ, 1GB SDRAM and Geforce TI4800 <-- was kick arse at the time. :)
My first CPU overclock was the above Pentium 3.
My first GPU overclock was the above Geforce TI4800
My first watercooling was won from OC3D and installed on an AMD Athlon 64 3800+.

Loved overclocking the P3 system. Had to use Jumpers. :)

The first system I built was a P3
First overclock was on an Athlon 1800+
GPU overclock was on a 6800GT
First mod was Project: Shiny Destiny
First watercooling is still in progress as it has been for over a year now haha

Started with a Dragon 32 (cooling mod). Moved through A500 mods, A1200 mods. First PC was a 386SX16 which I did nothing to, but modded a 486DX2-66 cooling then started in anger on my P200MMX. My P3-450 was home-built but not strictly modded. Since then I've homebuilt and modded in various ways a 1.4 Thunderbird, 2400 Barton, X2-4400 and 7750Black.

Hopefully will move into watercooling in the spring instead of constantly modding air-cooling and cases.

The first pc I owned was an evesham vale prebuilt, with a Geforce 2 gpu, 256mb ram and 1.2GHz AMD and 40GB disks. First PC I built was its succesor, an AMD 3500+ (939) on an A8N-SLI motherboard and a 7800GTX (that was the best when I got it) and 1GB RAM.
My first mod was when the chipset fan failed and I replaced the cpu fan with a big copper zalman 9500 and the chipset fan with the old processor fan.
That was also the site of my first GPU and CPU overclock. I got that CPU upto 2.6GHz, then upgraded it days before I got my new pc, for the princely sum of £40 for 2GB RAM and a 4000+ cpu.

Nice Thread. :)

The first PC I ever owned was a Gateway 2000, housing a Pentium clocked at 100MHz, 16Mb of RAM (If I remember correctly), and a 1GB HD running Windows 3.1 and then Windows 95.

The first PC I built housed an AMD Sempron @ 1.6GHz, an Asus K8V-MX, 512MB DDR1, 160GB WD HD and an AGP Geforce 6200 running XP.
I recently put Ubuntu on this and gave it to the mother, and it's working away fine for her now at the moment.
