Great Laptop For Every Use
Dell Studio 17
Member Name: APR91
Dell Studio 17
Advantages: Great processing power and will last you well
Disadvantages: quite expensive and more difficult to find a good bag to carry them in.
I bought my Studio 17 over five years ago when i first started my A-Levels and ever since it has been great, i have had to reset it all once a year or so ago to get the running speed up on it again, but it has never let me down on programs or processing power. even when i put my university 3d modeling software on it. (Solidworks)
I have the 4GB Ram model running Windows Vista and its actually very user friendly, i also have the 8 hour battery, that sticks out a little at the bottom, still conserves energy very well and helps cool the laptop because only the front touches the desk etc. I have heard the chargers are prone to breaking but i have never had this problem.
I also chose two hard drives, both 500GB, i have filled these up multiple times, and never actually experienced much slowing, which is great.
Another excellent thing with Dell is their support line, i have rang them up several time regarding the laptop and they have always been extremely quick and helpful.
My Studio 17 goes everywhere with me and is still in one piece which means it's definitely sturdy.
Overall i would say it is expensive but as long as you take reasonable care of it, it will last a long time.
Only thing i will say is to turn off the Wireless card when your not using it, i burned through my first one after about three years, and although they are not overly expensive to replace it can be quite an inconvenience when they go wrong!
Summary: Best laptop i ever bought.
