Advantages: Small, durable, secure, workhorse .
Disadvantages: Too smal for me, after 3 Years the battery failed and does not hold charge as all
I have been using thi laptop from a couple of years now, although it is starting to show its age I have had very few problems. Although it is only a laptop I would suggest for the average user browsing the internet and using office products it is capable of more, as I have been using some quite demending things on it like Visual Studio and Photoshop.
This laptop looks good with its silver and black colours and it is comfortable to as use the keyboard is large enough even for someone with larger fingers and the screen is clear and has a good contrast making it easy to use for many hours in a row.
----- Features ------
This Laptop is fitted with a IntelŽ CoreTM2 Duo Processor which is a powerful processor and can run day to day tasks with ease the the dual processors mean multi-tasking and intensive programs are possible.
-- Graphics card
The NVIDIAŽ Quadro NVS 135M Graphics Card is good allowing for a large second monitor which can be used if the 15Inch display is a bit too small, provides nice crisp images and the main laptop screen can be expanded to a respectable 1440 x 900 resolution, the intergrated graphics card is according to official specs capable of 1280 x 800 which is also enough for most users.
-- Hard Drive
As with most Dell laptops you can get a variety of laptops mine contains a 60Gb Sata hard drive which is quiet according to some stats this would be able to store 15,000 mp3s, 150 movies, 30 games. Although windows takes its chunk of this. I have never had too much issue with the reading writing speed apart from when I am overloading the system anyway.
My system has 3Gb of 667MHz DDR2 Memory which is enough to power the system and all my programs the DDR2 memory chip is still good and the 667MHz bus is fast enough.
This laptop comes with many different connections, this includes Wireless, Lan, and a 56k Modem which makes it a well connected machine. There is also a slot for a mobile simcard in it which I have not yet explored as to its features. There are 4 USB ports which and the standard audio output and inputs.
With a range of Operating Systems, CD/DVD Drives, Hard Drives, Grapics Cards, Memory, batteries and Optional Security like finger print scanner, this laptop is many things to many people.
----- Overview ------
I am very happy with the machine and would recommend it to any day to day user and office professionals. It is not a gaming or software development machines although it will cope it is not quite up to that standard. It is robust, has enough power to run most things and the options mean this laptop can range from a basic to a good machine. The screen is good and the graphics card is suitable.
Summary: This is a great everyday and home user laptop providing everything they need in a stylish neat frame
