  • 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.

I hate this thing

  • Summary: I wish I could've stopped my boyfriend from buying this thing for me a few years ago. I really have never liked Dell; I've had a lot of Dell computers at work and they've always been screwy. So, I didn't really want the Dell in the first place, but since he bought it and was enthusiastic I thought I'd give it another shot. It worked well enough . . .at first. But then. . .the issues came up: 1.

Not a Good Computer

savedbygrace, Amazon
11 December 2011
  • Summary: I've had this computer for a few years now and all it has given me is trouble. Vista isn't great, but that's not what makes this computer so bad. After having it a few months, the hard drive crashed and I lost everything. They replaced the hard drive, but it wasn't a good one. It made my computer run really slow. After that, I kept getting the blue screen and various errors. I had to take my computer to get it worked on and had to buy another hard drive of good quality.

Never again

L. D. Brown, Amazon

  • 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. Funny thing is, Dell advertises this as a benefit. Huh? Now it's impossible to reinstall the os system because you can't get it online anymore. I will not buy a Dell again.

Dell should be put out of business.

Dell Paper Weight, Amazon
5 October 2011
  • 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. In one way is was good because the left hinge came apart 18 months after purchase and again 15 months later, both covered by the expensive Best Buy warranty.

Terrible Laptop, never buying from Dell again

J.Taber, Amazon
14 July 2011
  • Summary: This computer is far more hassle than it is worth. It is a hot, loud, problematic mess. And I am not alone in this. -The computer gets very hot after only a half hour, to the point it actually is painful to have on your lap. The fan, which is supposed to keep the laptop cool does not do a very good job at it. Additionally the fan is very loud.

Throw $800 in the trash and avoid the middleman

R. Hochberg, Amazon
26 May 2011
  • Summary: I've had this computer for less than 3 years and it is ready for the garbage. I've had to put in 3 hard drives and now the screen is flickering to the point where I can't use it anymore. I refuse to put more money into it so it will go in the trash. What a waste! DON'T BUY DELL!!!!!!

Piece of junk

Just another avid reader, Amazon
29 January 2011
  • 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 which. Second, this lousy laptop gave me headaches from the 7th day I had it.
