Dell Latitude D410!
I got this in pink for christmas and was so HAPPY!
It's small and compact so was very easy to take away with me. You may want to get a larger laptop if you use it for business or work, this was only for personnel use so it suited me perfectly. It is very straight forward to use and i had it personalised to suit me with 3 weeks.
Then the problems started! First it crashed all the time! and the battery would die after only using it for about 20 minutes. The final straw came when the charger blew up! After about 6 weeks of different people attempting to fix it they managed.
I was NOT offered a new laptop or charger!
It finally began working again but it has not been the same since. It is very slow and freezes all the time
Overall not happy with this product!
Ive found this is a great laptop for surfing the internet and its compact size means that it can be tucked away at home when not in use or taken on trips away from home. The size still provides a big enough screen to view movies or your favourite programmes on BBC iplayer
The only real disadvantage I have found is the battery life. Mine seems to only last 30mins at the most, but as my laptop was second hand ti may simply be that it needs a new one! Another thing that bothers me is the waste of space near the mouse. Does it really need two sets of buttons for the mouse?
Other than that, great basic laptop with all the features needed for a first time buyer. The sound and picture quality are good and it lasts a good while on your lap without heating up too much and burning your legs off.
