Laptop power supply

  cactusjack 18:17 02 Oct 04


I've finally decided that I'll buy a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop. However, on their website, Dell offers two options for the power supply: "AC Adapter D-Series 65W Power Cord" and "AC Adapter D-Series 90W Power Cord". There is no difference between the two in price.

90W is higher than 60W - so it initially seems to make sense to go for the 90W. Buy why isn't the 90W priced higher? Does anyone have any advice on whether to go for the 90W or 60W? - the only reason why the 90W may not seem attractive is because it is heavier.

Sorry, it should be 65W not 60W.

well, can't explain why it's not dearer but i personally would get the 90w for obvious reasons. Better power supply, faster charging, higher wattage for when the machine needs to go full pelt (plugged in of course, otherwise the battery saving feature will throttle back)
