Summary: Good laptop, perform as expected! Easy to use, with many shortcut buttons. Very reliable as compared to the new commercial laptop nowadays. Excellent for the everyday tasks such as email, web browsing and to watch online video. HDMI allows for great versatility.
Summary: This laptop is really very good. The brand is recognized, it has the guarantee of the DELL Company which has many years providing excellent products and that gives some security. The abilities of this computer are pretty good.In short, Advantages: Good value, good design, very comfortable and convenient keyboard, easy to use, large screen (good to watch videos), HDMI port, SD memory card reader, camera and mic built-in, no makes big noises.
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: Hmmm. Mine works fine, running win 7 pro. Does get hot, I use a fan underneath when running intensive. I don't see more probs with this computer than with any I've owned, about 6 so far, 3 laptops. This is the best of the 3 laptops - have a toshiba, compaq and this. I upgraded the hard drive to 500 and also installed a bluetooth. Has a nice pci slot on the side so I installed usb 3.0. Too bad a lot of the computers now aren't coming with pci which is pretty handy.
Summary: I've had this computer for about four years now, and am relatively satisfied with it. It's a bit flimsy, but it holds up. I've had a few issues that I've had to deal with--initially the DVD-RW drive didn't work, so I had to replace it, and ended up replacing the replacement drive, and most notably, the display started to fail on me, so I had to replace that also.
Summary: I only feel compelled to write a review about this computer because of all the bad ones on here. I have had this laptop for a little over two years, and it has survived with few problems. My laptop has a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo in it, and only 2Gb of ram. When it comes to multitasking, this computer does not shine, but for everyday paper writing and web surfing and the like, its just fine as long as you don't have a million tabs open in your browser.
Summary: This laptop is not bad and actually would be a good starter laptop for any teen. Most teens do not need a high end computer/laptop because they most likely would only want to use the internet. This should be a good laptop for them!
