someone please help me understand this i7-6560u configuration...

Q: someone please help me understand this i7-6560u configuration...

I have the xps 13 9350, and I'm trying to understand what this configuration of specs really means and what it does..i honestly have spent hours researching, and all I can come up with is that this laptop is fast for certain programs that require power and speed..but I cant grasp a general idea on how I should be using it based on my usage.

I use this computer to surf the web, download applications and programs (very rarely, only if they are awesome and I feel like I need them/or use them daily), watching YouTube videos in high-def, and doing re-search. I don't do anything demanding, like there is no video-editing, no gaming, no large file-transfers, nothing like that - so I don't see the need for anything to be working super-hard, or cpu/gpu/hardward-consuming. unless I need these things for what I've listed above? I do like to multi-task, and have multiple tabs in edge open, and other programs open/running like fb messenger, etc.

is there a way that I could tweak the system settings to not be running like a Lamborghini all the time, and instead maybe just like a corvette ?? does that make sense ? lol!
and is it normal for a laptop of this size to stay relatively cool all day long, and then towards 9-10, or 11 hours in of continual use to be running hotter temps? I mean, I'm only using it for browsing the web, research, and youtube video watching - I would like the best possible experience while doing those things of course, but if I'm using system resources that I don't even need (like having them on standby incase I want to use them) id like to know, and maybe have knowledge on how to turn them down, or even turn them off!

I want this laptop to last me as long as possible, and would like to increase its life-span wherever possible - so if anybody has any advice or insight for me on this super-awesome to use & sexy laptop, please please please! help me out here, there seems to just be TOO MUCH information spread out throughout the web for me to possibly sort-through in time, I'm really trying but I feel like there are some very important basics I'm missing, if your reading this and your that person with that knowledge, or insiders information, I'm begging that you please comment and help this kid out - I received this laptop in a trade, and I only knew that it was a fast laptop and that the hardware was superior - idk what ive gotten myself into so-to-speak. (however, I love it!)

xps13 9350
intel core i7-6560u
16GB Ram
512GB NVMe PCIe SSD (Toshiba)
QHD+ Touch Screen (3200x1800)
Intel iris 540 graphics
(as you can see, I have done my research on the hardware and know about their names, and have an idea generally speaking, on what they do and are about - that's about it though, lol)

thank you so very much for taking the time to read this,


Kind Regards

Preferred Solution: someone please help me understand this i7-6560u configuration...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: someone please help me understand this i7-6560u configuration...

Hey Brian,
Modern PCs are pretty good about not running faster than they need to be in order to satisfy demand. The CPU and GPU (and their fans) only raise their clock speeds when you need them to, and the SSD doesn't really do anything when you're not actively reading/writing data. You don't really have to do anything to "optimize" your components for longevity. I keep laptops running 24/7 and they still run just fine 5-6 years later. The only possible exception is that there are some BIOS-level settings you can tweak to prolong your BATTERY'S long-term lifespan if you'd like, but that involves limiting the maximum charge, so you're basically trading away some battery capacity for long-term battery life, essentially. However, even there the default is an "Adaptive" mode that's supposed to monitor your usage patterns and adjust accordingly.
In terms of heat generation, there are too many variables to say whether that's normal. It wouldn't happen just because you've had the system running for 9-10 hours (again, I keep mine on 24/7 and they're not constantly warm), but since you use a lot of tabs, understand that not all tabs are created equal. A simple webpage with static content is going to use a lot less system resources than even Gmail (which is basically an entire live application in a webpage) or something that's constantly streaming video/audio. Also, there are some webpages you wouldn't expect that place an inordinate load on the system because they pull from roughly 3,715 different advertising and tracking sites, not all of which even manifest themselves visually. I visit some regular sites I visit that look simple enough, but every time I visit them, my system slows down a bit and my fans pop on. Drives me nuts, but I personally believe that ad blockers are unethical, and I'd rather see the content than not.
Anyway, all that to say, you've got a sweet system there that should serve you well for years, so don't fret. :)

Hi there, I've been trying my best to find the ideapad 710s-13ISK with the i7 processor and iris 540 graphics. However this has not been easy at all. I live in Belgium and I have not found a single (web)shop that has this product. In the Netherlands (close to Belgium) I can only find this product on the Lenovo website, nowhere else. I've been told I can't purchase it from the NL website, so do I have any way of getting this specific laptop? (http://shop.lenovo.com/nl/nl/laptops/ideapad/700-series/710s/) I know it's not really a good question to put on the forums, but I have been struggling to reach Lenovo (both BE and NL). Thanks in advance, Sam

I was planning on purchasing the Spectre x360 - 15t with the higher end processor, the i7 - 6560U with the Iris graphics. A little over a week ago I checked and this was still an option. When I checked this week you can no longer select this processor. Under the Features -> Additional Features  -> Graphics section it lists the 15-inch model as having the Iris graphics. However, only the 6560U has the Iris graphics. Now the highest grade processor that you can select is the 6500U which only has the 520 HD graphics.  Does anyone know why the 6560U was removed from the options? Will it be returning and if so, when? Are they planning on releasing an even higher end processor? I tried to ask HP sales about this but they didn't help at all. All that they can look at is the same information that I can see on the configuration screen. So any help would be greatly appreciated. 

A:Spectre x360 - 15t no longer available with the 6560U proces...

I am interested in this as well. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/hp-news/press-release.html?id=2151247#.Vv_zadC2eZM says the 15" version will be available with Iris graphics but the highest option I see is Intel HD 520. I talked to a sales rep who told me the 520 is Iris but looking at http://ark.intel.com/products/family/88392/6th-Generation-Intel-Core-i7-Processors#@All shows the 540 found in the 6560 is the Iris equipped model.That same press release also mentions an OLED equipped 13" model which I also am unable to find on the website. I would like some clarification if these two models are forthcoming or have been cancelled. EDIT: Looking further it looks like the model with the 6560u is the HP Spectre x360 15-ap007nd which is listed on the HP Netherlands store http://store.hp.com/NetherlandsStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=V4P02EA&opt=ABH&sel=NTB

hello, I was wondering if its going to have a direct impact temperatures of my laptop based on my processor, and how the CPU usage affects my laptop both over time, and in performance how this works?
for an example, my computer CPU will run between .77~3.0ghz+ depends on what I'm doing, switching between YouTube and other browser tabs causes it to fluctuate - is that normal? I'm not doing anything else, just browsing and watching videos every now and then - the temperatures of my laptop gets kind of  hot, I used to use a temp monitor app to watch it, and it usually stayed between 40~70c, long-term usage caused the temps to reach 70ish~ with just YouTube and web browsing - no gaming or anything else, so I am just trying to understand this all and also learn how to adjust the settings in power plan/fine tune for my system

I own the Dell XPS 13 9350/2016 model with the iris 540 graphics card, I purchased this laptop in march of this year (2017). So I've only had this thing for about 3 1/2 months now, just short of the 4 month difference between then and now and I've had my ups and downs with this machine already, only until just yesterday did I decide on a clean-install of windows 10 home (I had previously been using the laptop and its OS as it came directly from dell with all of the dell apps/programs/services it came installed with). its working much better now!

my laptops specs:
Dell XPS 13 9350/2016
/Iris 540 Graphics
/512GB NVMe SSD(m.2) Toshiba THNSN5512GPUK
/16GB Ram
/QHD+ Touchscreen
/Windows 10 Home (clean-install, no dell software)
/Norton 360
so I am trying to understand how the CPU % and GHz (processor power) works, and what real world usages affect these numbers and how they would apply to me and how I use this specific laptop. I honestly don't use anything too demanding, I only use this device to browse the web, surf net/read articles, YouTubevideos, photo/video storage/sharing, social media, Netflix, some small/minor demanding programs/applications - and absolutely no video-editing, gaming, or anything else processor demanding. I got this laptop from a cousin who bought it band new and ended up needing a desktop instead so sold it to me, and is only 3-almost-4 months old now.

I need to set up three user accounts on two computers the accounts on each computer is going to be monitored.
Each user will be assigned access for certain folder or files and certain applications, like internet explorer.
And all usb ports and dvd drive will be blocked. Only the admin will be allow to have full access.

So i need to do something that allow ( managers) to monitor employees activity on the system during working hours.

On one pc is windows xp pro on the other os windows 7 home premium.

Any idea how i can acomplish this task?

I.was thinking of group policy on both computers but on home premium there is not group policy.

Also the users will be using almost all the same programs and files just the with different information.

Thank you in advance.

But for Windows 7 Home Premium you will not have the
Local Security Policy so you may need to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro for that.

This is easier to control with a server like Windows Server 2003 or 2008.

I have an old P3 system that I let my son use for internet browsing, email, etc. It has been rock solid for 6+ years until lately and I think the issue of not booting properly is that the master CD-ROM gave up the ghost. And so I took that out hoping that is all it will take.

Here is my question (and I feel so much like a noob; I did try to google but I got nothing): Where do I place the tab to take it from slave to single configuration? As slave the tab was placed on the far left in the verticle position. Am I correct in that to make it singular I need to place it horizontally on the bottom two prongs center-right?

I hope I am making myself clear. This is an old system and it has been years since setting it up and I don't have my manuals anywhere. I couldn't even access Buslink's website.

Thanks for your help.

A:CD-RW Configuration - from slave to single configuration?

The jumper will fit on the pins, based on what is imprinted or embossed on the drive. It is usually very difficult to see... but if you use a flashlight or other device you can place at different angles, you can see how the jumper choices are stamped into the metal. Most often the center two are Slave, the right is Master, and the left is Cable Select.
I suggest you jumper it as master.
If it is a known brand, you can find a drawing on the website of the optical drive manufacturer.

Hey, I was cleaning out my cookies from Ccleaner and I check them by googling them just to see what they are and found this from googles safe browsing page adnxs.com explanation it says on the one hand its harmless and on the other its a site that links to malware or trojans!I have not a clue where it came from and I know cookies are harmless it just seems that the site is sending mixed messages with it.

According to a whois query adnxs.com belongs to 1&1.com a web hosting provider. When I added www to that domain name I get a log in page for something called ADNEXUS appnexus. Hope that helps you get a handle on what that cookie is. And since it's a log in page I'd be willing to bet those might be false postives.

Ok I understand the following:The internet is made up of networks of computers all linked together. there is no spicific location the internet is hosted geographically but its all the computers linked together. What I dont understand:~if no one ownes the internet or it is not hosted in any one place or few places, how can companies charge you to use it? Why do you have to be routed through them? Computers are linked together and that forms the internet.~What is Web 2.0?~Whats RSS?~I guess basically whats the detailed infrastructure of the internet!? is it just computers all linked together? it has to be more than that!?!?!?

A:Please Me Understand...

~if no one ownes the internet or it is not hosted in any one place or few places, how can companies charge you to use it? Why do you have to be routed through them? Computers are linked together and that forms the internet.It's not simply different computers hooked together. In every network situation, there will be a primary computer. The computers cost money, the wire that connects the computers cost money, the electricity to run the computers cost money, the people who work to maintain the networks like to earn a living - so they get paid. All that data on the internet is housed somewhere on a computer: usually a large one.This site may give you a better idea of how this works: http://newsinfo.iu.edu/news/page/normal/3660.htmlIf the main computers get fried the whole network goes down. Consider the fact that just a short while ago, BleepingComputer was off-line. The website is hosted on a, or perhaps a few, main computers. Something malfunctioned on the main computer, so the whole website went down.Edit: You might be interested in looking through the networking forum.Orange Blossom

A:Please Help Me Understand

Some form of Linux will run on any PC above a 286 and at least on all other major computer architectures from 1990 to pesent.

No base needed.

To a beginner I would recommend Mandrake or SuSE or maybe Fedora (Those need a machine from this century though).
Knoppix and the SuSE CD version run off a single bootable CD so you can try them out without needing to install anything.

All major Linux distributions will do everything a normal person would ever want a computer to do.

Dear Anyone who reads this.

I'm trying to add a menu to a video, so I can point at it with the remote, when it's in the TV DVD player, and click on Scenes, Play Video, just like a shop bought DVD player.

Everything's been legally purchased here.

So I set up the video footage as per the Help Screen instructions. Divided it into chapters, got the menu up and running. Dummy-compiled it - without the real video being included, that lets you test the menu without having to wait for ages - and the menu works like a dream. Put the real video back in and got 'Pre-Verification Error - Video Type does not match.' Picked the process to pieces and discovered what 'demuxing' meant.

Well, I demuxed the video, went through the whole process with that and EXACTLY the same thing happened. With one difference.

DVD Lab Pro has got 2 progress bars - I call them 'b/sh bars' because they're eye candy basically, those sort of things - but anyway. One fills up rapidly and every time it hits the end the other one fills up a tiny bit. This time round it DID seem to get a lot farther before booting the video out, but maybe that's just because it was demuxed, I honestly have no idea. Anyway.

I'm enclosing the Report the program generated. Hopefully it'll mean something to you, because it doesn't mean a whole lot to me (no I wasn't born thick, I worked very hard at it and I've got the certificates to prove it!)

I got a new PC, it has 2GB of RAM and a AMD Sempron 145 processor with 2.80Ghz, also NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE integrated graphics,

What doesn't make sense to me is the specs are well capable enough to play games like Oblivion and others but yet I have to play in the lowest detail what must I do for it to actually play HD (the requirements are 1GB of ram and I have 2...)

A:I don't understand this..

The stated ram is always the minimum requirements, that does not mean that if your system meets the minimum requirements that it will pla the game at its highest detail. The PC you describe is actually a very low powered budget minded system, and not meant to be a serious gaming system.

I just switched to a wireless connection with my provider. The beauty of that, is my download speed jumped from about 24KB/s to well over 100Kb/s. While that may not seem like much to many, it is a WONDERFUL thing to me (I was running dual channel ISDN).

When I set my network up though, my system (WinXP Pro) originally configured a "Internet Connection". Now that connection won't connect.

The configuration also called for a static IP address, which I configured, but here again, I don't understand.

WinXP Pro caused the creation of:

1) 1394 Connection
2) 1394 Connection 2
3) Local Area Connection

I also configures a new "Internet Connection" each time I boot my system (I guess since it is an "always on" connection.

To make the whole thing work, I had to configure #2 above with my static IP information (including default gateway and DNS server IP addresses).

Now why was all this stuff configured? What purpose does it serve? Why won't #1 above go away when I try to delete it? Why do I need both #1 and #2? - These just start the questions. If anyone could explain this stuff, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you for your time.

A:A lot I don't understand

1 and 2 are firewire connections and appear (not sure why) I have several 4 on mine--then again I have 4 firewire ports. You need only be concerned with 3.

I really do not know where to post this question so perhaps it will be moved somewhere else. I have used a computer and laptop for several years and also a normal mobile phone (one of those without all the fancy bits)! I have no idea what an IPhone is or does (perhaps connects to the internet?) or what an IPlayer is and does. However watching TV last night my internet provider BT said that to use it's black box to access all programmes it had to be used with an IPlayer otherwise I could not look at programmes I had missed before etc.,

So really I would like to know if an old lady such as myself should learn about these latest developments or if I should be satisfied with what I can already do?

Thanks to anyone who can advise me......................regards Margaret

Hi experts, please help me by explaning this situation on me. Last month and a half I formatted my one and only 80gb HDD in two partition. So now i have two partition in only one HDD, which is called the drive C and drive D. The biggest partitioned is drive C the one where i installed my OS which is windows xp professional service pack 2. Then the drive D remain RAW, so i format it by right clicking drive D: then go to format with NTFS file system like on drive C but this time without installing another Operating System. So I thought I only have one Operating System Installed on my HDD.

And now my question is if i'm planning to Re-install my Operating System on Drive C: with deleting partitioned space, would it delete also the files that i put on my drive D: ?

Thank you very much, I hope u can help me...

A:Please help me to understand this, ASAP

Hi , I'm no expert but I try to help .<<...if i'm planning to Re-install my Operating System on Drive C: with deleting partitioned space, would it delete also the files that i put on my drive D: ?>>It depends...how's that for a non-answer? a. If you have a Microsoft XP install CD...and it is not a MS OEM/System Builder version...you should be able to do as you stated. I would go a step further and suggest that you delete the existing partition...and then use the XP CD to create a new partition/format same/install XP. b If you have a MS XP install Cd and it is a System Builder/OEM version (which is what I have), then I don't think that you will be able to do what you outlined. The reason...the SB/OEM versions of XP expect to be installed on a hard drive which does not have anything else on it, since the O/S is the first thing that should be installed. It differs from the retail/upgrade versions of XP in that regard, if I recall correctly. c. If you are using any recovery/restore disks from any computer manufacturer...those play by the rules of the system manufacturer, which are not necessarily rules that conform to the behavior documented for a MS XP install CD.System manufacturer and model?Louis

Well, me and hardwares have never like each other
Everything I know that RAM stands for Random Access Memory, which means that finding data is much faster on here since you don't go through the whole thing (or something like that). I also know that it has to do with the speed of your computer. I would pretty much like to know what kind of data is in a computers RAM, what is it good for in what way and what would happen if the RAM would be cleaned, everything removed.

Please excuse my English, it's far from my first language
