More laptop queries- Dell XP media, laptop screens

  cactusjack 13:14 30 Sep 2004


I have a couple of questions regarding Dell laptops. When customising a laptop on the Dell website, for the Operating System options available, it mentions the following: "Microsoft Windows XP2 Home Edition (No Media)". Does 'No Media' mean that no disk of the OS is provided?

Secondly, does anyone know the differences between the following options for laptop screens, since there is no explanation on the Dell website about the differences:
WXGA LCD Screen,
I'm presuming that WS means wide-screen, but I'm not sure about the rest.

Thirdly (and I'm sorry if this sounds like an obvious question), I'll probably be using the laptop for conecting to data projectors to give presentations, and I need to make sure that the laptop has the relevant connections available before I buy it. Does anyone know what connections on the back of the laptop should be present for this purpose (I'm presuming that most laptops have the required connections as standard).


+ Thanks to everyone who responded to my previous threads!

to answer the first question, you get a XP restore disk, which for all intents is almost the same as an XP disk..the disk will partition and format the HDD if you want it to, then load the OS for you....just done my Dell Inspiron with it...............
