Re: Looking for a completely silent laptop ...

Hi both, Thanks for your comments ... And @mike: I guess there's probably some/more ways to get to a silent PC or laptop - yet what pleases me with the solution that "fell into my lap" (courtesy help from people here) is that besides being completely silent in all the uses I've put it through (excep...

Hi All, ... so I'm pleased to be able to say that I've now found a laptop that appears to be completely silent in all the normal uses that I have put it through: the Dell E6420 (i3 2.1 GHz processor; 8 GB RAM, 120 GB Samsung SSD, win7 prof. 64 bits, 1600*900 screen). Price can be £180-£200 on ebay. ...

Re: Looking for a completely silent laptop ...

Hi Abula, Thanks for your feedback - it looks like an interesting combination yet it is somewhat outside of the economic scope I have for this purchase... Basically I would have been quite satisfied with the Sony Vaio speed-wise & feature-wise had it not been for its noise level. This is why I'm loo...

Re: Looking for a completely silent laptop ...

Hi All, So ... now I've sold my Sony Vaio VGN-Z laptop and although I found it to be utterly reliable and pleasant to work with the fan just was not useful for my purposes ... However, this also means that I'm in the market for another 13.3 - 14" laptop - completely silent - and would aim for a Dell...

Re: Seek advice for completely silent small size PC ...

Hi all,

I've decided to go the "stationary PC" path. Will buy an Intel DQ77FB card and a low power processor with SSD harddisk. This way it can be completely silent no matter what ...

Thanks for your various inputs ;-)

Re: Seek advice for completely silent small size PC ...

A P.S. to Mike: Might you have any experience with re-installing WIN 7 & minimum drivers on the X220? On my Vaio I only made it because there was a helpful thread on the internet describing the sequence in which to install the drivers ... Otherwise it basically only works partly ... Also do you reme...

Re: Seek advice for completely silent small size PC ...

Hi all, Back again from a somewhat recreative weekend ... :) And now have more energy to consider your replies - thanks again! First: The reason why I need a quite fast computer is that in time I'll be recording bit rates of up to 300-400 Mbps altogether. I reckon that for this to work without losin...

Seek advice for completely silent small size PC ...

Hi All, I hope you can help with this :wink: I'm looking for a completely silent PC (no moving parts) and hope one or more of you here may be able to guide me as to what to look for. I intend to put it together and assemble it myself. My use for the PC is audio recording which means that it also has...

Hi Pet - thanks for your tips. I'll look into it one of these days and see if I can make it work better ... should be possible since you have the same computer ;-)

Re: Looking for a completely silent laptop ...

Hi bonestonne, Thanks again for replying. Reading what you write I wonder if Sony has done something to prevent undervolting/underclocking programs to get access to the system/software that controls the fan ... My laptop is a VGN-Z21 (2.54 MHz duo-core, 4 GB RAM, i5 processor) - quite a fast machine...

Hi again bonestonne. Now there's a bit more room to look into your mail - if you're still around I'd like to clarify something in what you wrote ... Hope that's ok ... NEC chipsets are the most stable for USB audio interfaces that I've seen. This is interesting as the person who was in charge of the...

Re: Looking for a completely silent laptop ...

Hi - and thanks again for replying. My head is going elsewhere right now (preparing for the next couple of days) so this is just a brief message to say that I've read your post and will get back with any thoughts & comments I may have probably sometime next week. Be well wherever you are :wink: Jesper

Re: Looking for a completely silent laptop ...

Hi bonestonne, - thanks for replying & also thanks for asking the questions you ask ;-) I'm currently in the process of developing the recording system I'll be using and the A/D and D/A converter units most likely will be transferring data via one of these cards: http://www.cesys.com/en/products/kat...

Re: List of fanless laptops

Hi Pappnaas, & thanks for replying :wink: I currently have a Sony Vaio from their professional series and besides being a superb computer - as such - it's like being close to a "machine" most of the time. The fan is on most of the time and compared with other laptops it's actually noisy IMHO. So I'm...

Re: List of fanless laptops

Hi :D Just wonder if there are any news on completely silent notebooks/ultrabooks (~13-14 inch screen) with an Intel chipset, good performance (need not be state of the art), good battery time, USB2 and Win7/Win8 software? For my purposes it needs be an Intel chipset as they appear to be more reliab...

The external soundcard is an idea I'm currently looking into myself, however, I'm looking for the very best and also what is most important is that I can record - not necessarily play back - with the card in superb quality.

Re: Looking for a completely silent laptop ...

Hi Mike - yes, I might record "silence" ... can be a singer that pauses for so long that everything silences & I need to have the laptop close to the recording venue as long cables - even digital - in my experience affects the sound (used to work with high-end audio)... So the silent laptop is the w...

Looking for a completely silent laptop ...

Hello :-) I'm looking for a completely silent laptop (i.e. without a fan and with an SSD harddisk) and although the SPCR seems to be most about stationary PCs maybe somebody here knows about silent laptops as well? I currently have a Sony Vaio with a 2.54 GHz duocore processor which I'm otherwise ve...
