Summary: I bought two Dell Inspirons 14" 2 and 1 for Christmas 2014. Each has been to repair multiple times for the same plus another defect. I received them back and one stopped working while i was initiaizing it. Dell Tech support ( Phillippines) are very nice.
My sister had bought it for school from best buy and it was a floor model

Summary: I have one of these Laptops and its honestly falling apart by its seams. My sister had bought it for school from best buy and it was a floor model. The only thing worng when she got it was that the mouse pad stoped working with in a week. Not a big deal she just bought a $5 mouse from walmart.
Summary: This laptop is good for todays programs and still has good specs. My problems with it is its battery gets EXTREMELY hot and can burn you, also the fan is not good at releasing heat. The battery life also sucks for any battery, and these batterys are in need of replacement almost every 2 years.
Summary: I've owned my Inspiron 1525 for about four years. This thing didn't work correctly right out of the box. Since I have owned the computer there has been an issue with the wireless card causing the computer to crash and restart if you try and shut down or hibernate with wifi connected.
Dell couldn't even supply this part but Amazon did!!

Summary: Normal wear and tear eventually wore out the plastic that the hinges are mounted to. Went around with Dell and they couldn't even supply this part anymore but have the ones with the designs which I didn't want. Ordered this from Amazon and arrived extremely fast and EXACTLY as described.
