Summary: Dell 1525 laptop is a favorite of mine. The 15 inch screen is perfect. It does not have the new processors of today but the ones it does have work great, I like the 1525 so well that I do not even want a brand new laptop.
Summary: Have purchased two Dell inspiron 1525 laptops from ebay. I'm not sure which one I'm supposed to be referring to here. I will say that overall this particular laptop is nice. I actually already had one that I had been using for several months, which is why I bid on the two on ebay. I like that they're lighter in weight than some other brands. I have had a real nice toshiba, also an hp in the past, so I am familiar with laptops.

Summary: I have bought two of these Laptop's one for me and one for my wife. First thing I did was replace the LED Screens and the inverters , to improve the quality of the view of the Laptops. Then I replaced the fans and upgraded the 1.73 GHz Celeron to 2.0 GHz T7100 Intel Dual Core CPU's for my wife's and Intel T8100 Dual core 2,2GHz on my Dell and upgraded to 4 Gig of Ram on the Memory.
Summary: I've had this laptop since 2007 (or early 2008 - can't really remember). it's December 8th 2013 and this laptop is still alive!! I've used this laptop throughout college and it's helped me out A LOT. I mainly used it for productivity, ie MS Word and PowerPoint. I have also upgraded to Windows 8.1 -- although obviously it's non-touch computer. The only really problem is the fact that after a 2 years or so the battery just stopped charging.
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.
