Summary: Great laptop for surfing the web, word processing, imaging processing, playing music and videos through the likes of iTunes, Pandora, VLC, Netflix, Hulu, etc. With its install of a running MS Office, both business professionals and students alike should find something useful to do with this machine. With 4GB ram and a 500GB hard drive, its got a quality build feel to it, more so than most other Dell laptops I have encountered.
Summary: I had this pc since Nov 2009 when I was in college. This laptop have survive at least 7 moving after that and is great 4 years later I still don't complain. How many laptops you see that 4 years later are still working..
Summary: I don't know why people are dissing this laptop. I've had it for 3 years and the battery is still great. I even use this for gaming and it still runs smoothly. I had problems with it when I first bought it. The charging circuit wouldn't work and they had to replace it. But after that, it ran smoothly. The laptop can run Adobe Photoshop CS5 but lags a little. It's good enough for a student like me. 3 years ago, laptops were pricey and this fit my budget.
Summary: I purchased the Dell Inspiron 1440 for college about 3 years ago and I must say that I have nothing but good things to say. I used for writing essays, paying bills, powerpoints, streaming videos, etc. You name it, Dell did it! One negative thing I could say about Dell is about the lengthy time it takes to get in touch and get a question resolved but as far as the computer. I am still well pleased. Three years and still going strong.
Summary: I've had this laptop for almost two and a half years. I'm pretty okay with it. I don't do anything high tech, so it works well for my needs. There have been a couple of small problems. Sometimes when I turn my computer on, the mouse doesn't work, so I have to turn my computer off and then back on again. I have a couple of dead pixels I can't get rid of. I sometimes get this random whir-click sound on the left side of the computer (not sure what that's about).
Summary: This laptop is a nightmare. It is the second one I have purchased that won't hold a charge. There is a design flaw that requires the motherboard to be replaced in order to get my 2-month old computer to hold a charge. The first one I bought was 14 months old before the exact same thing happened. Dell was useless...said it was the battery, the power cord. I replaced both at my own expense and neither fixed it.
Excerpt: My family pulled together and got our daughter the Dell Inspiron 14 1440 Laptop for Christmas. The neat thing about Dell is that you can customize your own laptop. We chose to add the Intel Pentium Dual Core T-4300 Processer because of it's reputation, reviews, and speed. The 14" HD screen is really bright and you can contol the brightness by the touch of a button on the keyboard. The high definition audio is really great, as my daughter does love music.
Excerpt: I just started graduate school and needed a new laptop - so I bought a refurbished dell (and it's pink! gotta love that. I feel a little bit like Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde). I paid $350 for it. There's nothing fancy about it - I just need a computer with enough memory and speed to keep up with graduate school...and this has turned out to be a great option. I love buying things refurbished. I love the idea of reusing something.
Excerpt: I bought this computer mainly for school - I HATE writing notes and when you're in a science college class (Anatomy and Physiology for me) you have A LOT of notes to write. I wanted a laptop that was small and light but also had decent specs (CD writer driver, decent processor, expandable RAM, etc.) in case I needed to use it for something else. All-in-all this computer is the perfect choice for that. It's lightweight and fairly small.
