Advantages: Hardware Specification
Disadvantages: Chargers and warrenty
I have had this laptop for about 2 years now, I got it in my final year at university because my old one broke. It was my first Dell and I was impressed with what it had to offer. Since then my girlfriend and friends have all got this laptop and it has been a great laptop for us all. I really like the range of colours you can get and the specification of the data hardware. For a laptop it was a huge step up from my old one, I think this is because laptops are improving rapidly. My old laptop seemed pefect to me until it broke but after recieving this new Dell i realised how old and out of date my old one really was. This new dell was fast, efficient and easy to use for any laptop user.
The only issue I have come across with this laptop is chargining issues, my girlfriend got her laptop after I did and it was all going ok untill she kept getting a charging error. It kept saying that it could not recognise a dell charger and therefor would not charge the battery. After researching about this issue, it seems to be a common fault with the laptop that costs a considerable amount to fix for such a tiny part. As my girlfriends laptop was out of warrenty, she still has the issue years later that her charge refuses to charge her battery. Some times taking the battery and unplugging it and replugging it gets the battery to work properly but then next time you plug it in, it says it cannot recognise. We have tried other chargers but they say the same.
So I would say this laptop is a very good Laptop at what it can do and achieve powerwise but i would recommend getting extra warrnety or insurance out, incase anything like this happens again.
Summary: Very good laptop but let down by cost of repairs
