Dell Inspiron 1525
Advantages: Very powerful machines
Disadvantages: heavy and bulky
We have been using several Dell inspirons at work for the past year or so.
Overall I find them to be rather good computers. The build quality seems to be stable, and they seem to be able to handle tough "field work." (We send ours out on marine survey ships throughout the world, to process sound gathered from Marine mammals.)
They are generally reasonably priced, (between £4-500 pounds.)
They come with a standard Microsoft operating system. (Either windows XP Or Vista.)
We then have to install other software, which seems to work really well with these laptops. They appear to be compatible with most outside pieces of software.
The laptop itself feels rather bulky, and is quite on the heavy side! I would not want to have to carry this around too much, it would soon make me rather tiered, having said this, once they are in place, they are capable of completing difficult computing tasks, and so therefore I would recommend them if you needed something with a bit more "juice!"
Summary: good for specific jobs but not necessarily an all rounder.
