Summary: This one is for my daughter,I love the computer, I have three of them. Couple of issues with older version pre-2008 the video card by nvida stinks so if you buy a new mother board and can change it yourself that's great all parts are still available right here on EBAY!!!
Keep it in good shape, with free updates but also $$

Summary: Purchased in 2007, it is back to being a good computer. I have an Apple laptop as my main computer now. But, that was after this Dell had a Trojan experience. Since then, I do not email from this Dell, but, I do have iTunes on it. I updated everything: battery, OS, Ram. That and the security updates are keeping this a good computer .... at least for the Internet and iTunes. I was not keen on the Ancestry software and switched to MacFamily on the iMac.
Summary: Super fast processor. Much much faster than the old - Fans are very quiet and this machine almost never feels warm even after watching a movie. - Fantastic keyboard. - Very nice sound quality. Sound is better in my headphones than my iPod. - Perfect size.
Summary: I never liked Dell, I thought they were just cheap computers, now I know it's true. My husband convinced me that they were of better quality than before, forget it. I hate this computer, it is so slow. I think I will never buy Dell again. I hope this helps people from some miserable computer. Don't waste your precious tinme. (My Dell just rebooted for no reason and I wrote this review on my IPad,which I love, in the mean time.).
Summary: This is a middle-of-the-road laptop. If you're looking for functionality and something to just get by, such as with an Office program, this will work fine. If you need a laptop for graphic or memory-intensive programs (or for gaming), the Dell Inspiron 1420 should not be looked upon as a solution. The touchpad lacked a great response time and my unit came with a rattling processor fan, which was integrated on the motherboard and therefore not fixable.
Summary: I have had this laptop for almost 6 years and it still runs almost as smoothly as when I got it. I rarely turn it off, carry it with me everywhere, and am using it almost constantly. The battery life is not so great anymore, but I really can't complain. I love my computer. It's a simple machine but it works well and it is sturdy!
Summary: The laptop i bought is Dell inspiron 1420 is a good laptop according it's condition it is better than what i thought everything is good with it, it runs good and i hope i can keep it the way i received it.
