Dell Studio 15

Dell Studio 15
Advantages: Great speakers, great HD screen.
Disadvantages: Still heavy. Long to start up.
I got my Dell Studio 15 a good 3 years ago (so on Vista) and it is incredibly fast and brilliant even now. At 4GB RAM she processes very quickly even now and is very good for playing games and watching films.
On the Dell Website you can get one customised to practically every specification that you want, from the size of hard disk to the anti-viral software to the optional backlit keyboard and even coloured covers. However the higher spec that you order with all the optional extras, obviously it will get increasingly more expensive and set you back about £500 when the basic package is about £300.
However if you do what I did, you can go to the Dell outlet website where you can purchase returned and refurbished goods which are still like new and my version of the laptop has a pink cover and a larger 320gb hard drive instead of the standard 250gb for £315. The delivery was very quick too and the laptop was packaged like new and setting up was new as well- you would never know that it was refurbished in the first place.
One thing I noticed was that the screen adores anything in HD and is very clear, so if you want a blu-ray player instead of a standard DVD-ROM player in your laptop, the screen will definitely do it justice. Another thing that I loved to fiddle about with was the "hot keys" at the top that double up as the Function keys and which you can use as controls for music players such as Winamp and Windows Media Player and iTunes apparently (but I haven't figured out how to set that up yet)
The only drawback in my opinion is how long it takes to start up but with most windows computers, its not Dells fault, its Windows.
Great student companion for uni as it is built to last. Multi-purpose for film watching, doing essays with ease and even having a mini party as the speakers on the keyboard are quite powerful.
Summary: The student desktop convertible!
