Dell Inspiron 1520
Advantages: nice design, bright screen, good value for money
Disadvantages: battery life, bulkiness
I bought my dell inspiron 1520 about 4 years ago. It was aroung £400 which was very reasonable at the time. Four years on, it is not in the best condition but is still going.
The design of the laptop is good, it's all silver but the top of the lid is black. You can get the same laptop with a variety of different coloured lids.
The screen is very bright and has great resolutions and the sound is also brilliant on this laptop.
Vista is very good and I haven't had any problems with it. The laptop is brilliant for word, presentations, excel, windows media play
The laptop was very reasonably price and is good value for money.
The DVD writer is brilliant and has never caused me any problems. I have used it to watch dvds and also to write cds and it is very quick.
The laptop is quite heavy, weghing at about six and a half pounds. I have took this laptop abroad before and despite being manageable it was heavy to carry around and not the most portable.
I have had a few problems with the keyboard and am missing a few keys but they have been easy to replace.
Since purchasing this laptop 4 years ago, I have had about 3 problems with the charger and have had to replace it. These were easy to purchase on ebay and cost me about £15.
The laptop can be a bit slow but I think this is more to do with how old the laptop is.
It's quite slow when starting up and has a habit of freezing at times which is very frustrating.
Battery life isn't brilliant and only lasts a couple of hours.
Summary: great for a first laptop but does have a few problems
