Advantages: Fast, Reliable, A bang for your buck, Rarely lags
Disadvantages: Random crashes, Touch pad isn't great
I have had this computer for close to a month now, and feel it was a great choice. It only cost me 850 dollars for the1TB hard-drive version and so far i have not had many problems. And compared to other computers such as the MacBook and Alien it is a bargain. Saying that though there a couple of things that have annoyed me about the computer. For one the right mouse pad button has started to make a really load clicking noise that really did my head in for a while but i got used to it. I probably just got unlucky now i think about it. Another problem i have had is that at random times it has just decided to shut down on me for no apparent reason, and a blue screen pops up saying its crashed. But other than that there hasn't been many problems. It works at a fast speed almost all of the time, and i rarely find myself waiting for it to load which is a big improvement to my previous computer. It is a pretty good computer for computer games as I didn't experience any problems playing Football Manager 12 and XIII. The webcam and speakers work very well, which i know from using Skype, didn't experience much lagging and am very clear to the other person. One tip when buying a dell computer is to make sure to do it online, as they generally have offers and you can find promotion codes on the internet or their website to decrease the price of your purchase. One last thing, the battery life; its lasts around 2 and a half hours when fully charged was expecting more but then again it is a 17 inch computer. It charges very fast which makes the battery life a small problem.
Summary: Great computer for its price range
