I should think that a rollback would work. If not just remove the drivers and get the Dell drivers. Also note that Dell's drivers are way behind Nvidia's at the moment since they have to be created specifically for the m11x r1. Not the best solution I know, but if you search around either here, or notebookreview.com's forum you should be able to find some info on how to shoehorn newer drivers on to your system.

Yeah there are ways to shove special drivers into the r1... it's very annoying and sometimes doesn't work (when I tried it) but it's worth your time if you use it a lot.... because God their driver's are behind!

I'm going to be ordering one of these babies around Christmas, stock other than 4gb of ram. It's going to replace my ubuntu'd vaio vgn-320e as my new primary computer. Plus with the black Friday sale it'll be $200 off regular price. I'm hope it lives up to all the hype!

Is it worth the extra $160 to upgrade to the i7 from the i5? I'm probably going to order in the next day or so.
post #205 of 309
No, they are the same chips, just 1MB cache extra, and a bit faster, but you can overclock the i5 anyways

Sweet! Where did you get the Anti-Glare screen protector? I'm kind of becoming annoyed with my uber-reflective screen...
Can you take pictures with the same light/camera/location with and without it please? I'd love you for that

I'll take some pictures. It will be a few more days before I get the screen protector, as they are out of stock.

Not available in Canada
I'll be waiting for the pics!

I'm pretty sure the reviews on that said that it gives the screen a grainy look. I have a similar type of screen protector on my Archos, and it definitely adds a grain to the display. It isn't a deal breaker on a 5 inch screen that I primarily use for music, but I'm not so sure I would like it on my m11x which I use for hours a day and watch a fair bit of TV on. I haven't had any trouble with reflections on my screen, but the glossy finish highlights all the fingerprints and dust. I keep a bottle of anti-glare safe cleaner and a microfiber cloth nearby to keep that in check. However, it would be nice to clean it less often.
