Excerpt: Well this laptop was an upgrade for us from a previous Dell laptop we owned. The new camera it has is nice, an upgrade form our previus which didn't have one. The software is super easy to use with the webcam and works well with SKype. Since we have family all over this was one of the primary functions we were looking for.
Excerpt: I did quit a bit of looking around before I chose a computer. I also took the time to save my money so it was important to me that I got the features that I wanted and that it performed well. I liked what I saw in the Inspirons - my biggest debate was the 15" or the 17". I liked the lighter weight of the 15 but as an accountant by trade, I really wanted the larger key board with the 10-key calculator. I decided to go with the 17" and am glad I did.
Excerpt: I've never owned a laptop computer until middle of 2009. It's worth the investiment because it's easy to transport and use in other locations like a library if you do not have Internet access. I'm a photographyer. It's also great to have along in your car while taking photographs, to download quickly. I recommend the Dell Studio 17" because it has the 10-key pad and it's a great sized screen.
Summary: I have been very happy with this laptop. I have had the laptop for a year now, and it is a great laptop. I paid the extra to get more memory and a good CPU and I haven't regretted it. It is a good laptop with many great features. The Pros: It is a fast laptop with a very good picture. The sound is pretty good for built in speakers. Good battery life (although I upgraded to a 9-cell to get even more life). It will run a good many processes at a time.
Excerpt: Before deciding on what equipment to buy, I checked with my friends, asking them to recommend the brand and had the most positive experience for their use. The answer came to me the most important is that Dell was the most trusted brand, and the Dell Inspiron 1750 has become my new computer, I `m very happy so far. However, I `m very happy with this laptop in almost every way, a great fall that I agree that battery life is very poor!
Summary: I recently upgraded from a Dell Inspiron 1525 to this 1750 model. The differences.... I defiantly like the BIGGER screen. (getting older I guess) The Volume control / speaker improvement with greater volume capacity is totally awesome. I was pleasantly surprised by the weight of this unit being so much bigger....it doesn't feel much heavier then the last one I had OR I am simply comfortable with the weight of this one.
Summary: I purchased the Dell 4 years ago and had the extra memory included to 3 Gb. It's a great laptop for typing and the screen is excellent. The 3 gig memory allows many windows to be open at once, many more than on my PC which has a similar memory size. The screen is clear and is very good for watching movies etc. As with most laptops one would like the battery to last longer, from full the laptop lasts only about one and a half hours before the battery needs recharging.
