Dell XPS L501x
Advantages: Solid build, fast and reliable
Disadvantages: Expensive and weighs a lot
This Dell is my second laptop and was bought for me to use in university. Firstly, it is very good looking, the metallic finish gives it a solid feel. The 15.6 inch LCD display has 1080p full HD which makes it crisp when watching movies or browsing the web. The 750 GB hard drive is more than enough to house your pictures, videos and music as well as important documents.
The Dell has two JBL stereo speakers and a subwoofer built in which provide decent bass and dynamics when listening to music. There are two headphone jacks, one of which is capable of 5.1 digital output. With two USB ports, an optical drive, a microphone port and an ethernet port the laptop is well equiped for other hardware to be introduced. Included is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit which is as reliable as Windows can possibly be. At 6lbs this is not the lightest laptop so I would recommend this as a desktop replacement rather than a laptop you can travel around with. The £700-£800 price tag is a lot but you get a lot for it. Battery life can vary depending on what the laptop is doing but on average it lasts around 5 hours between charges.
The processor is a Intel Core i5-460M which makes processes quick if you are using the laptop for everyday things; but is not suitable if you are using this for activities which require more power. I have only had good experiences with this laptop and it has been very reliable.
Summary: Wouldvdefinately recommend this to anyone.
