Summary: It is a versatile laptop, easy to maintain and upgrade.I recommend this model because of the initial design and the simplicity to do the maintenance of this computer, cleaning the fan and CPU Heatsink assembly. I have purchased 2 of this particular model, and the Intel Version is reliable, and it boots relatively fast. I have changed CPU twice from 32 bit to 64 bit, and each version of the dual core chip has been a rewarding experience.
Summary: Very good computer. Fast bootup. Easily connects to internet.I have not had any problems with this computer. This is the second 1525 I have bought and the fifth dell. I would recommend this computer to anyone looking for a laptop.

Summary: This turned out to be a good deal...a much tighter computer than my old one of the same model. This will make a nice loaner computer for our digital publishing class with Glorybound Christian Writer's Assn in Nevada.
