Dell Studio 15
Advantages: Fast, reliable, great features, good Dell support
Disadvantages: Base gets very hot.
Had my Dell Studio 15 since September last year and have been very impressed by its overall performance and also by the high quality of Dell's service.
I got the Studio 15 in a deep purple almost metallic colour (which I love), but on to how the laptop actually works.
I got this laptop for university in the hope that it will last me for the whole three years of my degree. I was originally considering the Inspiron but thought that paying the extra would pay off in the long run.
So far I have been very impressed, the computer is very fast and I have had no trouble with programs taking too long to load or running slowly. The cd/dvd drive is great and burns my cds/dvds quickly and without any problems. The monitor quality is very good with high quality photos and films displaying very well on the screen.
I was also very pleased with the service I received from Dell, who provided me with a free Windows 7 update (I bought the laptop shortly before the release of Windows 7). The update installed perfectly and there was also Dell support for ensuring all my programs were Windows 7 compatible.
The only slight problem I have is that the back of the keyboard area and the mouse pad gets very very hot, sometimes too hot to touch, this happens more so if i am streaming videos/films, and sometimes results in the laptop overheating and turning itself off.
All in all, a brilliant laptop that I have no doubt in thinking will last my throughout University.
Summary: Overall a very good laptop
