Dell Inspiron 15
Advantages: Lightweight - good for student
Disadvantages: Struggles with media storage.
Dell Inspiron 15 - purchased this earlier this year t a cost of £400 from a private/independent PC Shop. Although you can also purchase it from PC World for £349.
It comes with a a dual core intel premium P6200 processor as standard. Plus a good bundle of stuff - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, the memory is 3GB and a hard drive of 320GB - have found it has plenty of storage for all the media I need - have added 1000 photos so far. Also comes witha 0.3 mp webcam as standard. Has a 15" screen have been able to watch films on it with ease.
Has a USB connection and a card slot. Battery has on average lasted me about 4 hours which is not great in my opinion.
You can also purchase a switchable lid for the 15" laptop at a cost of £39.99 at PC World - should you wish to change up the colour. Currently they offer 8 various designs and styles I find think the Sangeet designed lid to be fairly stylish being beige with a curled motiff.
Having used this for several months can't rave about it. Yes on spec it has the full package but on usage over a short period of time it has become slow and clonky to use. Just adding the photos as slowed down the performance to about 30%.
Would I buy again = not this particular Dell - bit lightweight this one for my usage. Fine if your a student and just want to type up a few reports and light internet browsing. However if you are a hard core user and want it for stacks of storage this is not the one for you.
Tried to keep this review short and sweet and to the succintly to key points. As if your like me, I don't want to read a book before getting to the review.
Summary: Would not buy again
