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. The larger...
Excerpt: I've never owned a laptop computer until middle of 2009.

Excerpt: In fact, I recommend this laptop to my grandmother because she wanted to buy a laptop for the first time and looks like this is very easy to use and be organized, I thought the Dell Inspiron may really work well for her, the more I could help when she needs advice or assistance on how to understand things.
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 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.
