Dell Inspiron 1545
Advantages: Looks lovely, sleek, great quality of picture and colour, fast speeds
Disadvantages: THE BATTERY
I've had this laptop for about 2 years now after replacing my big desktop type computer that just completely packed in (it was an old, old PREHISTORIC system!) This is a lovely looking laptop, I have the one with the white lid so it's very sleek looking and has a glossy surface. Its quite slim and fits into an ordinary laptop bag so it is quite easy to transport around (I took mine on a cruise with me and it was just like carrying around another handbag so it really wasn't too bad to carry extra).
However the glossy surface has become a bit of a problem, especially for OCD people like myself, as it becomes really streaky and dirty and it's virtually impossible to clean!
Anyway, the actual laptop system is pretty simple and quick. All the buttons are simple and load up really fast. One thing that threw me was that it doesn't come with a Microsoft Office so I did have to pay for that extra (which was like £70!!!) However this is ideal for teens such as myself. I wouldn't recommend it for like businessmen or anything because it just seems more available for the young ones!
There are 3 USB ports for all your gadgets, great quality screen and colour, SD card port for your camera transfers, and all the other usual things such as headphone slots and webcam.
Actually I have one BIG BOOBOO! The battery life is rubbish! Well actually it lasts like when you unplug it for ages but after 18 months of having this laptop the battery DIED! It cost me £30 to replace which was a bit depressing because it's a great product. But apart from that this USA great laptop for teens doing school work or just young people in general this would be a great first laptop.
Summary: This is a wonderful product, a great first laptop for any teen or anything for school work etc
