Summary: The cooling system for the CPU is a new design that had not been well tested. The CPU overheats and shuts the computer down, especially when the computer is used while charging or when connected to an HDMI screen. This is a problem reported by many users. This laptop should have been recalled.
Summary: My screen is being held up by yellow duck-tape. The battery is crap, it stopped charging 4 months after having it. It still runs, but it's super slow. I'm really looking forward to getting a new laptop, I'll NEVER buy DELL again.
Summary: I've had two Dell laptops. On both of them the mousepad stopped working within months. (Why I bought the second laptop I dont know.) On the 1525, everything seems to have fallen apart. Even worse, it didn't come with driver disks or any of the oem software on disks.
Summary: You would be an idiot if you bought anything Dell. Any company that won't warranty obvious design screw-ups should not be in business. I bought a Dell Inspiron 1525 from Best Buy, mistakes on both counts. I was suckered into buying Best Buys warranty program.
Summary: I have owned this computer for 3 years with nothing but problems. Dell has a terrible support team that tries to rip you off by selling you warranties you don't need and have a huge communication problem.
Summary: First of all, it's pretty hard to get the laptop you want when the manufacturer only gives you very few options for components. I'd rather they gave the buyer an option to build their own laptop with the expectation that the buyer did their homework and knows which components are compatible with...
Summary: Horrible, just horrible. Itd take half the page to explain all the problems ive had with this. I got this computer for free through a scholarship, but honestly, I wish I had just spent the money on a better computer.
Summary: This Dell computer has a big problem. Dell knows about it and has done nothing to own up to it. The plug in that is connected to the main board easily cracks making it impossible to charge your computer. It is poor engineering from the get go and quite costly to repair($145 to install a $5 part).
Summary: I bought an Inspiron 1525 brand new in January 2009 and within 5-6 months the HDD crapped out. After spending an hour with telephone diagnostics they actually told me I had to go buy a 3mm Phillips screwdriver to continue the diagnostics (Despite purchasing warranty and 3yr support that includes...
Summary: This laptop is total crap. I wouldn't have even given it 1 star! I think I had it for 3 months before the hard drive died taking all of my files with it. Luckily I still had a warranty so they replaced it for me after a few hours on the phone and them making me try a bunch of stupid things that...
