Re: Dell pc's

Hello Reed,
 
I have the Dell D600 laptop with the ATI Radion 9000 video adaptor
chipset (I think it is).  I don't want to panic you as it may be a
system specific configuration with my software but I have really
annoying problems with JAWS and focus issues on this laptop sometimes. 
It may not effect you and a re-build of my machine may solve the problem
but just wanted you to be aware.
 
Steve.

Howdy,


My employer is going to replace my existing notepad. The hope is that
the replacement will keep me going for the next 2 to 3 years. 



The Hardware/Software Procurement person states, 

"The current company standard for notebooks is the Dell D600 laptop
with the 1.4GHz Centrino mobile technology processor and the ATI
Mobility Radeon 9000 graphics chipset."



He goes on to state that,

"Intel has two processors for their laptops, the Mobile Pentium 4
processor and the Centrino mobile technology processor. It is the
Centrino processor that

we are using in our new Dell laptops. According to all the benchmarks I
have reviewed on this, the Centrino processor outperforms the Mobile P4
processor.

For an example, the Centrino 1.7GHz processor is faster than the Mobile
2.6GHz processor. The Centrino processor also uses less power,
therefore; battery

life is 1.25 to 1.5 times longer than with the Mobile P4 processor.".



I'm an old mainframe dog who supports telephone company prebilling
applications running on an IBM mainframe and a few pc Unix based
applications coded in JAVA.   

Our standard pc configuration makes use of the Office 2000 product. 
Word and Excell are used for creating and maintaining
requirements/design/system documentation.  We use Reflection For IBM
(which works very well with JAWS) for our terminal emulation.  For
email, we use Outlook 2000.  Mcafee is the security software.  All of
our human resources/payroll activities, time reporting, learning etc is
performed on the company intranet through a central LAN  .  The network
is also used to push  software upgrades to each of our pc's. 



All of the junk the network guys have running in the background has
been causing my pc to really drag from time to time; preventing me to
get real work done. The hope is that this new notepad will improve the
situation and keep me going for 2 to three years. Hmmm.  



I have been asked to advise if this Dell and chipset is compatible with
my voice software.

Do you know of any issues with this 1.4GHz Centrino processor or ATI
Mobility Radeon 9000 graphics chipset?

Would some other DELL notepad configuration work better with JAWS 5. 
Will the machine be fast enough?  Ya, ya, I know...What's fast enough? 



Thanks.



Reed
