Dell Inspiron 9100: $4,800 Pentium 4 Laptop from 2004

Wetenschap en technologie

Among mid-2000s Windows XP notebook computers, the Inspiron 9100 was thoroughly into desktop replacement territory. Dell gave it a full desktop Pentium 4 CPU, a 16:10 HD display, and even a built-in subwoofer! What a hot and heavy beast of a gaming laptop, portable workstation, and media center all in one.

    Its hard to think that in 2008 my brother bought an extreme i7 3.33ghz with 8gb of 1333 DDR3 RAM and two GTX 285m graphics cards. Was still a dell in a fancy case. But it holds 2 Graphics cards in SLI....... It now has 16gb of ram, Usb 3.0 in the 200MB/s ExpressCard 54mm slot & x2 2gb GTX 765m's running in SLI with a SSD running in SATA 2 at 384 MB/s So it runs win 10 well and I see no reason to upgrade to anything other than the 18 version that runs 32gb ram, 2 GPUs & a 4ghz i7 with a1600 mhz FSB and sata 3.

    Pretty sure I had to fix one of these for a friend who was getting severe thermal throttling, by sandwiching some folded aluminum foil between the CPU and heatsink assembly. Not enough clamping force on the heatsink caused these to overheat when the TIM gradually dried out over time due to the design flaw.

    10:26 In 2004 we students watched lots of youtube videos in university. If WinXP, Flash player and Firefox are up and running for few minutes, surfing the web was rather fluent. Bottleneck were the harddrives. As soon as every important processes has been loaded in caches and RAM, notebooks got good responsetime even in 2004.

I just tried to upgrade the ram to 2g, it didn't work but it's stable at 1.5g. I think I'm gonna keep it and use it for music media.

I wish I never sold it, I bought an XPS version but the Inspiron 9100 in that spec is a wolf in sheeps clothing. Runs Fallout 3 and Oblivion pretty well!

    I had the lesser model of this that came along also with the desktop CPU on the motherboard and yes it ran very hot. I only got it so I could play HALO and it ran so hot that it bent the memory chips! When the memory chips cooled off they would not ever bend back straight. So had to buy new memory...... Also would over heat the hard drive like crazy as well. Lovely machine if you just run MS office on it and thats it

    That pentium 4 chip being 32-bit is what made it so much worse compared to even a mobile AMD Athlon 64, being a 64bit cpu and all. As long as you fed the athlon 64 with updated applications that took advantage of it, it would beat the Pentium 4 any day even at lower clock speeds. Might have been a better focus when comparing those during your benchmark section of the video.
