      Good standing, high quality laptop, My fave piece of technology.

      I had the dell inspiron brought for me two Christamas's ago, and i'm still very pleased.

      As someone who knows very little about computers and what all the fancy words mean, as well as the size of its memory and capacity etc etc...This suits me down to the ground.

      The size is perfect, to type, watch tv and dvds on, as well as browse web pages.
      The keyboards comfortable to type, and the mouse pad is very response, and you can alter in the setting whay you wish different touches to do.

      The quality of the screens detail and brightness is magnificent. And my capacity must be pretty good, as i have lots loaded on, and its still remarkably fast for a laptop thats getting on a bit now.

      I have always been impressed with dell products so possibly may be a bit bias, but it has honestly been a very reliable easy to use well priced laptop.

      I dont think its as fancy and has the extras as many do, has the capability to do so....But after reading reviews myself, many have reported significant problems with the key board which i haven't experience.

      Mine is heavily used being a university student and not very well looked after, but its still powering though. The only problem now, is it spends alot of its time plugged in charging, as the battery isn't what it used to be. but i wouldn't say this is a fault or reason not to buy, its just what comes with age.

      I think its important to add, i recently spilt a drink all over the key board, and after a few problems with some keys sticking, i left it to dry out, and its survived without a sign, so really a very indestructible laptop in my eyes.

      Nice laptop for everyday use

      I have been using my dell 1564 from couple of months now. The looks of the laptop are fine (not really my deal) but the full keyboard (some complain about) has been a wondeful addition and something I have had no problem using. the screen is bright and clear and windows 7 runs like a champ with the i3 processor and 4 gigs of ram. I like the 15.6 inch screen size a bit better than the 17 inch displays and the weight of the laptop is nothing compared to my IBM think pad R60 Im replacing it with. Wonderful multimedia and video quality, and fast responce when running multiple programs. This laptop has guts for sure. The batter life is a little less than I expected and Im not fond the the plugin being on the right side. The touch pd works ok but can be a bit overly sensetive. The glossy look is sharp but is prone to finger prints, but than that gose with the territory.

        stores a vast amount of pictures , music and audio for an affordable price

        I bought this laptop last week from pc world last week for £529.99 (included Norton 360 antivirus). I am no computer genious but I knew the hard drive capacity on this laptop was great for the price . The good thing about this dell laptop is that is available in a range of colours , ranging from black to ice blue , purple and green so theres a colour for everyone !

        First of all it runs very fast and the keyboard is quite comfortable to use . I have read reviews on this laptop before and many have complained about the "cramming in" of the number keys at the side of the keyboard but if you are a lazy typer like me , you will love the ease of access of the keyboard.
        The laptop also has the new windows 7 operating system installed and it is just fantastic , it is so incredibly fast .
        The sound quality of the speakers are first class and the laptop not only does good but it looks good . It almost resembles the apple mac from the front and looks very classy. All of my friends have commented on how aesthetically pleasing it is .
        I am a keen photographer and I have stored over 1500 photos already and it still has plenty of space on the hard drive .
        If you are a gamer , this laptop has great graphics and sound quality and even if your games take up a lot of memory theres still loads to spare on this machine . The actual specification of the laptop is 4GB memory and a hard drive storage capacity of 500GB.

        The only downsides of this laptop are its battery life and how easily it gets dirty with finger prints . It seems I am forever plugging the thing into a power socket and wiping it with a cloth to preserve its appearance .

        Overall , this laptop is great value for money and perfect for home use and a light gamer.
