Hardware configuration details can be found under Specifications on the product information page. If Bluetooth is not listed, it is not included. This computer is not Bluetooth enabled. You may add Bluetooth functionality as an accessory; please see included product for an example.

answer 2
Hello,

The AC Adapter (Power block and cord) for this laptop is designed for worldwide usage. It can automatically switch between 110-240 Volts, so it can handle international power. The cable itself actually consists of 2 parts, the part that contains the power block and connects to the laptop and the detachable cable that plugs into the wall outlet. You might need an adapter to change this tip to match the specific pinout of your nation's outlet type.

Hope this helps,

Question

Is the 17.3" Inspiron the same as the 17R Inspiron?

I am looking at switch lids and it says the maximum size is 17" though the DELL website says the laptop (17R) has a 17.3 screen...to make this simpler, Can i use the 17R Inspiron switch lids on my 17.3" Inspiron? Are they the same thing?

Hello,

I am sure that most laptops will run Ableton Live. Here are the requirements for the software to run:

Windows: 2 GHz Pentium® 4 or Celeron® compatible CPU or faster (multicore CPU recommended), 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended on Windows Vista and Windows 7), Windows XP (home or Pro), Windows Vista or Windows 7, sound card (ASIO driver support recommended), DVD-ROM drive, QuickTime recommended

I have heard that many DJs use the Alienware M11x laptop due to its small size (portability), powerful processors, Realtek ALC665 audio chipset and Audio-Out port that can be remapped to provide 5.1 audio out as well.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

This system meets the basic requirements and I'm sure will play Diablo III fine on low settings.

http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/diablo-iii-system-requirements

That said, if you want to play the newest games like D3, I would recommend purchasing a system that has a discrete video card, like the Radeon HD 6450M or GeForce GT 550M. Getting these extra cards will really allow you to play games at higher graphic settings and get high frame rates.
This system comes with a great processor (2nd Gen i5), 6GB memory (might want to max out to 8GB) and integrated Intel HD 3000 video controller. Some Inspiron laptops have the optional video cards like the Radeon HD 6450M.
Dell also offers an XPS 15/17 lineup that does feature discrete cards like the GeForce GT 555m and is designed for graphic designers and gamers in mind.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

Minecraft is a great game in the fact that it does not require high end hardware to play it. It plays within Java and this laptop exceeds the minimum requirements to play it. Naturally, depending on the map size and graphic detail, you might have to adjust some settings to get optimal framerates.
Here is a handy link of many different hardware configs and their respective framerates:

Hello,

The integrated video processor in this Inspiron 17R is the Intel HD 3000. It will use between 64 and 1.7GB of system memory as video memory, depending on what the application demands at the time. It is a very capable integrated video controller but it is not as powerful as discrete video cards like the GeForce GT 550m video cards found on some systems. The HD 3000 cannot be upgraded after purchase. Here are some basic specs:

Intel HD 3000
Pipelines 12
Core Speed 350-1350 MHz
Shader Speed 350-1350 MHz
Shared Memory Yes
DirectX DirectX 10.1, Shader 4.1

Hope this helps!

MO 2010 64 bit comes preinstalled in a trial version. You will probably need to uninstall the trial first. After that, you should be able to successfully install 2003.

If the Office 2003 is compatible with Vista it will be compatible with W7. IF it's a XP program you could run it if your version of Windows 7 is Professional. My recommendation is a newer version of Office just for its newer compatability features. Cheers.

Hello,

Microsoft says that all versions of Microsoft Office 2003 are compatible with Windows 7 64-bit, so I do not think you will have problems like that. You will need to read the Office 2003 product license to determine how many machines you are allowed to install that Office 2003 CD on.
