      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Dependent on the price paid could be a bargain if bought secondhand

      Hmmm I have mixed feelings about this laptop. I bought it from Dell around 3 years ago and paid a fair bit for it, although I did upgrade the memory which didnt help. Its good points are that it comes with a fair bit of spec. Bluetooth is included which is great for transferring over pictures quickly from your camera without having to spend ages finding a cable and installing software. It is also very lovely to look at. Its silver and white and has a very large screen which is great for watching movies or Tv if that is your thing. However, it is very large and heavy so not really a very mobile laptop, if yours just stays at home then this would not be a problem. I also have had a problem with the battery life which seems to die after about 9/10 months. because I paid for accidental damage etc I have had these replaced but if you dont have that cover I think they are about £80 to replace from DEll. I also had to send it back to Dell as the disc drive broke after 10 months and then about a year later the whole system just crashed and never started again. This may however just be a one off.

      Disadvantages

      Nice laptop, excellent save for early reliabilty problems.

      Having managed to blow up my old Dell laptop 2 weeks outside warranty, I bought this one (with extended warranty). Things did not start well when, a month later, it decided to stop switching on altogether. Cue a visit from the Dell man to replace the motherboard. That said, since then (18 months later), it's been absolutely fine. I like the widescreen, which makes it good for movies on the go, and the keyboard and touchpad are comfortable to use (I have a trackerball plugged in, but that's just personal preference and I'd have that regardless). 4 USB sockets ensure I can do plenty at once, and it's certainly nippy enough for most day to day purposes. Battery life is reasonable, about 3-4 hours unless doing power-hungry tasks. It's even survived being dropped a couple of times with no obvious problem. Overall, I like it, and if it hadn't required that motherboard replacement early on I'd give it 5 stars.
