Dell Studio 15
Advantages: Fast, lots of memory, customisable and good looking.
Disadvantages: Heavy and slightly uncomfortable if used without a laptop cushion.
This was my first ever laptop and I was quite pleased with the purchase for many different reasons but the product itself has some disadvantages.
At first glance the laptop is very slick and stylish and because it is a Dell there is a certain quality about its design. The laptop boasts 3 USB slots, an SD card slot and HDMI connectivity so it does have all the bells and whistles. Opening up the laptop there is the usual touchpad and keyboard with added "media keys" in place of the normal function keys, these act as a pause and play for when listening to music and watching films; this is a very good feature. It boots up quickly in under a minute and runs either Windows Vista or 7 depending on what you purchase. The screen is very crisp and of a comfortable size and at 3kg this is not a light laptop, I would say it is more of a desktop replacement than something you can carry around and use on the train etc (if you need that, buy a netbook). At around £700 you get an Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 which makes it quick and the 4 GB of RAM is more than other manufacturers offer for the same price. The standard 4 hour battery life can vary depending on whether you buy a better battery or what you use the laptop for, obviously, activities which require more processing power also require more battery power. The actual battery pack petrudes out of the back of the laptop which does make it uncomofrtable if resting the product on your lap so I would recommend buying a laptop cushion as well.
The power of this machine is quite good, I have played PC games on it which require a lot of umph and the Studio 15 has delivered, albeit quite noisily. If you are looking for a desktop replacement which does not require much transportation and can effectively hold music, films and also your documents then this is definately for you. The Studio is also highly customisable if you buy through Dell, different colour and patterns can be bought as well as facial recognition via the webcam to login to your account. I can not stress enough that this is more than adequate to tackle day to day computing activities, obviously if you want gaming, buy a gaming PC but this is good enough for everything else.
Summary: Handles day to day internet browsing and leisure activities perfectly.
