You have to pull the drivers from Dell's website. At this point, the latest drivers are 197.72 A01... Pretty old stuff
That's why I'm hoping that the rep didn't just say random things when he told me I'd get a Rev2 with Optimus tech. That allows you to pull drivers from nVidia directly without having to wait for Dell to do something.

EDIT: Although there are some special driver packages, I'll have to dig up for the link, but I think some guy at notebookreviews.com made a compiler to install the newest drivers.

Yep to install the latest nVidia drivers you need to have the modded INF file.
post #167 of 309
Just a small heads up/update on my M11x experience thus far.
The laptop itself, is amazing, opening it up and seeing that the battery is larger than the entire motherboard is mind boggling.
The build quality, however is lacking. I have the dreaded hinge issue (see here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/alie...opened-17.html
There is another mile-long thread on the issue there, as well as about a hundred random threads in the dell customer forums.
Supposedly in late june, and with the m11x r2 the issue is no longer existant. I have thus-far been unable to get my laptop repaired, I am awaiting an RMA request since there are no technicians currently in my area, I'm hoping I can request an upgrade to the r2 since my issue is one of the more severe cases (both hinges are completely opened, and the plastic clips holding the bezel together are pretty horrid, the inside of my screen bezel is coated with little black flakes of plastic, I'll update this post with some pictures later)

I would still reccomend the laptop for its form factor to performance ratio, as well as its price, but unless the build quality has improved, and the hinge issue resolved, I'd say stay away - wait for FalconNW, Sager or Factor to make a competing laptop in this size.

Funny enough, my left hinge broke a month ago, I would never have noticed if Dell didn't put my already on-going RMA on hold for 3 months lol
Now I'm hopefully going to get a R2 and no depend on them for the drivers...

Hope you both manage to get an R2. Im loving mine. So glad I bought it, I used it a lot on my vacation to England for two weeks. Ran through BC2 and ME2 in that time.

I have the R2 and installed the newst driver version from dell support page... so, right now I have "v257.30 A01" installed and the most games works better... like Left 4 Dead 2... around ~70-80fps but it isn't funny to play SC2 in a 4on4 match with ~7-10fps :-(

btw. Battlefild BC2 run with ~35fps...
