Dissapointment as critical flaws about product was deliberately left out

chumbzy, Ebay
9 October 2013
  • Summary: The laptop is as stated by seller, however, critical information about the state of this laptop was deliberately left out. The battery is no good and there is a clear warning by the system of a need to replace the battery yet seller made no mention of that. Key "E" is not responding which is another clear information not mentioned in the add. I will have to buy a keyboard and battery to make this unit worth it.

heswefner, Amazon
9 June 2013
  • Summary: Windows was ok except the update system for windows wouldn't work I called Microsoft and had a guy do everything he could to fix it however that didn't work. So I had to download a new version of windows which now works well for me!! Seller isn't selling real MICROSOFT OS because it won't update also sends replacement AC adapter that won't register with system or charge laptop!

Do not buy USED

Marcos, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this computer because it is just like my brother's, but i made the mistake of buying it used.This was because in the condition statement it said "Like new" but when i got it it was anything but. The computer was full of viruses, there was damage to the plastic holding the screen,it overheated, the logo was falling apart, and the mouse buttons broke today.

Bad track pad placement

Brian B, Amazon
25 September 2010
  • Summary: I feel I need to write this review to warn people. I haven't experienced any major problems with this laptop as far as the way it runs. It hasn't died on me or anything. However there is one really frustrating issue I have: The track pad is off center just enough that when you're typing, the palm of your left hand slightly rests on the edge of it if you're not careful.

  • Summary: This is definatly a good buy if your a student. I returned it because the 15.6" monitor seemed smaller than that I instead returned it and bought a 17" HP which I am much happier with.

Walmart
20 July 2010
  • Summary: We bought this laptop for our daughter in her favorite color green and almost right out of the box we had system failure problems. Windows would not load due to missing / corrupt files. I used the Dell factory restore, Windows restore, and a complete Windows reload, and nothing fixed the problem. I contacted Dell with a complete description of the problem(s) and a service tech was sent out and replaced the HDD and gave us new Windows CD and driver CD's.

Battery Scam!

Amira J. Sayler, Amazon
9 July 2010
  • Summary: This laptop is OK, nothing spectacular. I also noticed the problem with the USB port being too close to the power jack, however, my largest issue with this computer is the battery. The battery life was never amazing, but after about a year the computer alerted me that the battery might need to be replaced sometime in the future. Approximately a week or two later the batter stopped holding more than twenty minutes of charge before shutting down without notice.

I'm sure there are worse laptops out there

I., Amazon
2 August 2014
  • Summary: I'm sure there are worse laptops out there, but I won't be buying an inspiron again. My last 2 laptops were inspirons, I had a 1525 which eventually got replaced with this 1545. Inspiron has gone WAY downhill in this model. The nice strong, sturdy frame and cover of the 1525 was replaced with this horrible shiny, squeaky plastic. It looks very cheap and nasty and feels even nastier. Also quite a few less details on this one.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy **Update below**

malaysianninja, Amazon
21 November 2012
  • Summary: I was delighted that I was able to get this so cheaply online, I only needed to replace two buttons and it was more cost effective to replace the entire keyboard. After reading a very helpful review I saw on here that I could change this myself with an online tutorial. It was a cinch, literally took me less than 5 minutes. My laptop looks like new! The reason I have given is 4 out of 5 stars is that the letters themselves are not as clear and bright as on my original.

Wouldnt pay £300 for this

Mr. Paul Norman, Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: I've had this laptop for around 2-3 years, and over the last year it has began to deteriorate. It has become very slow, and over heats after about 20-30mins of usage. This slows it down even more, and becomes increasingly frustrating. The design of the laptop is pretty poor too. The speakers in front of the keyboard pick up dust and crumbs and begin to look dirty and unprofessional very quickly.
