Dell Inspiron 1525
Advantages: The colour
Where do I begin?
Someone bought this laptop for me because my other laptop was in desperate need of an upgrade, I even got a pretty pink colour, and the colour was the only great thing about it in the end.
At the start this laptop was perfect, it had everything I needed and wasn't too heavy to carry around. Then a few months in the problems started, the system kept shutting itself down for no reason, the laptop overheated after only 30 minutes of using the laptop, which really should not happen. I took the laptop back to the company it was bought from and they told me that Dell updates tend to ruin the computer. I found out that the update knocked a few on my drives off the computer including the disk drive, meaning I could not do a full system restore on my own and they refused to too. I had to take it to a repair shop to get it fixed which cost a lot as you can imagine.
This kept happening so in the end I had to get rid of it, maybe I just had a bad one, I hope so. The battery life was also terrible, I was lucky if I got 30 minutes from it, which is just stupid in laptop steaks. But just be warned just because it is a Dell does not mean it is a great laptop
Summary: Be careful of trusting big name brands
