Summary: I've had this computer for almost 3 years and finally will be able to get a new one in about a month. I didn't even know if this computer was still for sale considering it's getting rather old for the computer world. I've never had anything good to say about this laptop. The DAY after the 14-15 day return policy it died. I went through a month plus of b/s with Dell and then finally got it fixed.
Excerpt: We bought our Dell Inspiron 1564 laptop at Best Buy after it was highly recommend to us by the sales associste. I have owned Dells in the past so I am aware of their excellent customer service and this one has not let me down! It has an i3 core processor, windows 7, premium sound, cool colors (we went with the red) I could go on forever. It is fast and reliable. You wont be disappointed! Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Excerpt: This laptop had everything that I wanted according to the specs, but I have been less than pleased since taking it home and using it. My most frequent issue is with the touch pad. It sometimes gets "stuck" and doesn't move the cursor as quickly as I'd like it to. I have messed with the mouse settings, but it still has the same problems.
Excerpt: I purchsed my computer over the phone they set me up step by step with exactly what i wanted and needed for my computer. Any problem I have had they have fixed immediately. Hane only had 2 problems and one has been fixed over all I am satisfied with my purchase from dell.
Excerpt: I just got my new Dell Inspiron 1564 a week ago, and I definitely feel like I'm being pampered by the speed!! I can do more than one thing at a time without it locking up, which is what my old laptop was doing. I also love that it has Windows 7 on it, which is very user friendly and nothing even close to Vista. Thanks goodness!
My Dell Inspiron 1564 is the fastest,brightest laptop of all

Excerpt: The graphics on this laptop are the greatest, plus Window 7 is excellent. I cannot believe the speed and accuracy of this electronic wizard. The Cam is sharp, bright and the picture quality is just like real life. I am so glad I chose Dell.
Excerpt: This is the worst lappy I have ever bought. In first year of warranty, it used to never get on in the morning daily. I have to take out it's battery every time and put it on for 40 sec. Then turn it on. This has been advised by dell service centre. When I got bugged doing it daily they told me to update it's software. I updated that. Now it's just one year with this lappy. And it's become very very slow. Hangs up daily several times.
Summary: I've now owned this computer for six months. My hard drive has failed once already and I'm certain it is going to fail again. It overheats whenever you run more than one program at a time. It has downright stupid fan placement. The touchpad is complete garbage and skips all over the screen while you are trying to type an email or a letter, often erasing all your work. Customer service has awful English skills and is nearly useless.
Summary: I purchased this laptop at Worst Buy (WB) around June 2010 and started having problems of course after the 14 day return period. WB had no idea what was wrong with it (I will never buy the Geeksquad plan again) so I dealt directly with Dell. I experienced blue screens with a USB error code. Dell replaced HD and motherboard (twice) to no avail. Now I have a refurbished of the same model and it has the exact same problems. Blue screens many times a day, USB error message.
Summary: I bought this computer in college for my Majors in Network Administration and Information Systems Management. its been a beauty since the day I bought it. the hardware can takes the abuse of hardcore gaming, and the built in Keyboard is wonderful for typing notes and writing papers (Larger Keys are better for me at least). Pros: Wonderful Hardware for what I need, Big screen for what i have experienced in Laptops, Nice Gloss Finish, Gets the job done!
