Advantages: Easy to use, battery life high
Disadvantages: laptop sometimes doesn't charge
Last year I was looking for a laptop that would be perfect to be able to do Uni work from and that was easy to use and one that would be able to contain all of the work.
I came across the decision to buy a Dell from the opinions of shop assistants from various stores that suggested that this would be the one that I would benefit most from as it had everything that I wanted and was within my price range.
The screen is a perfect size and the keyboard is really easy to use. The laptop contains a webcam which produces a really clear picture.
Although there are a range of colours that can be purchased for the front of the laptop, I stuck with the traditional black as I believed that after I had purchased it in a specific colour, I would change my mind and my opinion would have changed and would not have liked it anymore. Also, after finishing Uni soon, the black is more professional for when I proceed onto a future job.
There have been a few occasions when the laptop has stopped working but these were partly down to my own fault. I accidentally last year, soon after purchasing the laptop, spilt a glass of water over the keyboard and the laptop stopped turning on. However, after taking it to a repair shop, it came back to life and works perfectly again.
One negative that I do have about the product is that you have to replace the charger quite often. Recently the laptop stopped charging and would only work if it was plugged into the wall. Therefore, I bought a new charger and since has still persisted to not fully work. When the charger does work properly, the battery life is good, normally about 3 hours until it needs charged again.
The sound from the speakers is really well especially if you are watching a movie. My friend has a laptop from a different company and the sound is nowhere near as good as a Dell when watching a movie.
Overall - this laptop is really good for meeting the needs of a Uni student but there are a few flaws i.e. referring to the poor quality of the inability of the laptop to work without the charger.
Summary: easy laptop with clear webcam but a few flaws
