Advantages: Large screen, easy to use
Disadvantages: battery life
This is a great little laptop, I bought it to replace my dell desktop, I thought I would go with another dell product and I choose this laptop. It is very easy to set up, when I received the laptop, I was advised to fully charge it before using it, which I did. When you are first setting the laptop up you will be asked a few basic questions, and then you are ready to go.
The 17 inch screen on the laptop is great, it is perfect for watching videos and movies on. It is crisp and displays pictures very well. The laptop does not only look great but is also strong. If you set the laptop on hibernate mode, the laptop will start up again once you lift the screen, instead of having to start it up again manually. The brightness of the screen can be adjusted in the power settings.
There are a good range of features with this laptop and you can personalise it to your style. The sound on the laptop is also good, I listen to music on it quite a lot and watch videos and it is nice to be able to have it at just the right sound. I have not known the laptop to over heat, however if the charger is plugged in for a long time, this can become quite hot.
There are games on the computer when you receive it, and it is also able to run games at a fast speed. I usually have a few applications open and it does not slow down. The keyboard on the laptop is sleek and the touch pad is easy to use, some pads can be annoying, but this one is perfect. There is a built in modem to the laptop, so if you have access to wireless internet, this is a bonus.
The only negative thing I would have to say is that the battery on this laptop isn't great, it usually lasts about two hours max. Apart from that I would recommend this laptop.
Summary: Great laptop
