Summary: This was a fantastic purchase. It was more then I had expected. Great product. This is one great little Laptop and I have dowloaded all the information regarding this Computer from Dell with no problem. I highly recommend Dell Products.
Summary: Old but works. Got this for a drive that wasn't compatible with the XP migration. Might turn it into a Linux box though. In the recommendation there should be a "depends" instead of yes or no.
Summary: Piece of slow junk. Feels like you are on a computer from the 1990's. Not even useful for simple things like surfing the internet...unless you don't mind waiting long periods of time to accomplish anything you click on. Stay away!!
Summary: It was a great computer, real fast and powerful, plus it has DVD. But I stumbled over the power chord and it fell off my coffee table. I took it apart to see if I could fix it the operation was a failure. RIP.
Summary: My family bought a Dell Inspiron 5100 for my sister in 2003 (a decade ago), and made sure to get the best available at the time: 2.6Ghz CPU, 32MB video, 512MB RAM, 30GB hard drive, Windows XP. She loved it.
Summary: i bought the dell because of the price and i am very satisfied with it. It works great with room for upgrade. Dell has always made a good product and this dell inspiron 5100 is another good example of Dell quality. I would recommend this product to any one looking for a good stable computer.
