Summary: Well when I received this model computer, it was set to all it's "factory default settings" (mentioned in the auction's description), which caused it not to be able to even be connected to the internet without programming it? I needed to bring it to a local computer repair shop, and after spending an additional $125.00 with them, now have a computer that works fine. It's been about 2-months now and I can say "all is well". Hope this was useful ...
Wish we had been informed that the not Eng, but still happy!

Summary: I purchased this for my mother as she missed her WindowsXP system and making stationary using Outlook Express. I have to admit that the keys are not in English and she is still struggling to get used to them, but she loves the computer and seems very happy to have all of her old stuff back.
Excerpt: I was so happy when i first purchased my Dell laptop, besides the fact it was my first laptop in general. I had had a dell desktop before years ago and it lasted forever and ever. I have now had my laptop 2 years and i is sill going strong. The only issue ive had with it has been software related, and you obviously cant blame that on the laptop iself. So all in all I would def tell ohers to buy a dell laptop.
Excerpt: I could almost love my computer, but I have a few problems with it:1. It's a wee-bit heavy2. The backspace key popped off3. My DVDs don't have sound when I put them in4. Sometimes the programs don't function properly But other than that I love it! I have not had a problem with Vista, it has so many functions it's unreal (!), perfect for school and a home business, and it's a pretty color!
Excerpt: I have ablolutly fallen in love with my inspiron 1721. It has so many features. One of my favorites is the wireless that is built right inside. Another is that I do so much work for my Tupperware business on this computer that the side number pad is very helpful. Anytime I have hed a problem which has not been much other than me not understanding much about computer stuff, I have just called dell and they have been nice enough to walk me through anything I have needed.

Excerpt: While I did enjoyed my Dell Laptop, overall what in my opinion what this Laptop need to improve was to increased the quality of the pixs on the screen monitor. Other then this, I fould very useable specially with the built in router it was easy to find and open network to link to net. This came in handy for me as a student sometimes I had to take my to school or libraury or Start Buck's Coffee and worked on homework.
Excerpt: I just purchased the Dell Inspiron 1721 Notebook and I absolutely love it! The keyboard is set up with the numerical keypad to the right of the main keyboard which comes in handy being a travel agent who takes a lot of credit card numbers over the telephone. The mouse area is very convenient for moving up and down as well as over the whole screen area. The optional color of the notebook also adds a personal touch to this home office necessity!
Excerpt: This has been the 2nd Dell laptop that we've owned and we are pleased with this one just as we were with the first one. I would recommend this computer and would definitely buy another Dell. We have not had any problems with this computer since our purchase in December 2008.
Excerpt: My husband bought me the Dell 1721 as a gift; he consulted with an IT engineer at work to find the best deal for his money, with my needs/wants in mind. Since receiving it, I have had the best performance, oddles of storage, and no problems! What more can I say - I just said it all!
Excerpt: I received this as a christmas present last year, and i must say, it has been one of the most useful things i have ever owned. It's easy to transport around, although not the lightest laptop i have come across, and i can use it wherever i go. The screen is large and i don't think you would want it any larger, in fact it's the perfect size for a laptop.
