hey guys i bought my dell studio 15 laptop recently and i'm quite happy with it. though i would like to know if it's possible to go for minor upgrades like changing the panel to maybe an artist edition(it wasn't available when i purchased my lappie) or going for the creative x-fi onboard soundcard.. there is a dell exclusive showroom in my city and it is also a service center(i think?) for dell products.. just wanted to know if any of you have done anything like this before.. sounds like a n00b question but then again it's my first on the community!
i guess no support from dell is fine, but wil i get the upgrades at the same price as is in the "build my dell" customise option? i might not opt for upgrading the sound card but i would definitely like an artist edition panel!!
No -- you'll pay full retail price for the parts, which will be refurbished and carry at best a 90-day parts warranty (i.e., your panel warranty is void if you change the screen).
