Mine is too....

edit: Just got off of the phone with alienware and that is normal. They use a magnet on that side to detect when the lid is closed.

sounds good.
I'm surprised this hasnt been brought up before. A google search for "M11X magnet" shows no results at all that are valid.

G'day everyone!

Just wondering if anyone else from Australia has succeeded in getting the Dell 5530 WWAN card to work on their M11x R1??

I am having major trouble. Managed to get drivers installed manually but the only software I can get to actually detect and work with the modem is the Vodafone Mobile Connect... which doesn't work for other networks. It detects the sim for other networks and the network signal comes up, but it never allows me to connect except when I have a Vodafone sim. Infact it doesn't even show the connect button for other networks.

This is a pain in the arse coz i'd much rather use Virgin or Telstra than Vodafone.

Suggestions please anyone?

Or perhaps even instructions on how to change config files for VMC so that it allows other networks to connect? or how to use Win 7 connection manager to connect etc.

Really would appreciate any help anyone can give me on this topic! =)

Thanks heaps!

My wife ordered me one for my birthday using a 20% off refurbs coupon. 668.30 shipped for a SU4100, 250gb hdd, 4gb ram. Only missing the bluetooth, but that's okay. It should be here Monday, I can't wait!

Hello Everyone.

I just wanted to see if anyone was able to connect dual monitors to the m11x, for playing games. I did a lot of searching and the only thing I came up with was single monitor capability.

Also, is anyone using an aftermarket SSD, if so which one and how do you like it? The smaller ones are okay on price, but I don't know how well an 80gig or 100gig SSD would work for the only drive on this computer. And the 500gig SSD drives are just a bit to expensive for my taste right now.

Got a link for that cooling pad?
I've finally made my laptop/desktop table so I might need some additional cooling power eventually for some gaming with my girlfriend!

I'm using an SSD/HDD Hybrid (the Momentus XT 500GB from Seagate); I got it pretty cheap; 150$ CAD with taxes/shipping, it's as fast as my OCZ Vertex Turbo in my desktop at booting and doing most everyday tasks; highly recommended!

just got this laptop and I love it. I have one problem though, not sure if this happens with anyone else though. I always have to increase the brightness on it because after a while of not using it and then moving the cursor, the brightness always sets to the lowest. This happens on either battery or when its plugged in.

Can anyone help me with this?

thanks.
