Advantages: Value for money, play's popular games such as GTA and Sims 2 - Lasts a good amount of time
Disadvantages: Hard to keep clean & overheats at times
Three year's old and it's still going strong although these past three years have not been trouble free. As with any machine, parts over time can break and indeed it has! One USB port is no longer working, sometimes the mouse USB port quits working at random and the cooling fan isn't up to scratch. Although I believe most laptops have problems with fans due to lack of space and where the vents are located.
Processor - 4.4
Memory (RAM) - 5.2
Graphics - 4.1
Gaming - 3.4
Primary hard disk - 5.9
The performance aspects are pretty decent for the price that you can buy an Inspiron for and although it was never made with gaming souly in mind, it has done a decent job! Came with windows 7, 64 bit operating system & 2 GB of RAM. The battery lasts around about 2 to 3 hours for me yet in it's younger year's 4 hours was the range. As mentioned above the fan does get pretty hot at times - Heres a tip for you though! (Keep it raised so the vents can breathe) I have IE & google chrome which both work fast enough for general purpose (Watching videos, social networking, online gaming ect...) although as of recently the laptop has become a little sluggish. All in all, read the rest of the reviews and make your own mind up about this value for money laptop by Dell. It's well worth a look!
Summary: If your on a budget and want a laptop for gaming and general internetting, give the Inspiron a try!
