Summary: This is the second Dell 9400 I have owned. The main reason I wanted another one is the wifi works better than most in this model. I have a building in my backyard over 120 feet from my house and this laptop picks up the signal well. I good screen with this one and it came with a 320gig hard drive. This is an excellent laptop and I wanted one to use xp pro on. I don't need another one so unless this one breaks, I won't need to buy another one.
Excerpt: My company uses and trusts Dell products a lot, it’s the most widely used brands in most companies in Japan. In our office, we have send our vendors volumes of documents for legaties and it’s too hassle if we have it attached to emails over and over again.
Excerpt: what a fantastic laptop, goes fast has all the latest equipment including bluetooth so no more phone leads to the computer just click and send. This computer really does have it all, great memory and a good processor for quick gameplay. Football manager works extremely well. Very easy to use and very very reliable, we have had ours for over 4 years now and it still works exactly the same as it did to start with, nothing has ever gone wrong with it and if we have had any...
Excerpt: I bought this laptop now a few years ago directly from dell.co.uk now and it has been great. However, recenetly it has started showing problems with it - the laptop it self & not the software or hardware inside it. I have the 17'' laptop and the size of it is great, the screen is really quite big and great for watching movies or photographs on.
Good Desktop Replacement, grows old slowly and is reliable.

Excerpt: I have owned a 9400 since Feb 2006, I use it as a replacement Desktop PC, primarily for photo manipulation, which is why I chose the upgraded screen at the time. I re-installed Windows XP earlier this year, but only because it was getting cluttered, (as it does over time), this was such an easy procedure that I wish I had done it earlier, as there is a hidden partition on the HD containing the System which virtually does it all for you at the touch of a button.
If you are on a low budget and need a great laptop, get this one

Excerpt: Got this laptop (with higher specs as I customized it on the Dell website) 2 years ago and it still runs like a charm, though with a few issues here and there. The difference in specs were: - Core Duo 2.16 GHz - 2GB of RAM - NVidia GeForce Go 7900 GS (256MB) To start off, its massive, huge screen, thus huge weight - not ideal to carry around, but I would say just as good as a desktop computer but taking less space.
Excerpt: My husband has had this computer for about 3 years now. He was very happy with it and it has not given him major problems overall. It gives a good performance and so he uses it as a desk top, especially as it is a 17" so not so easy to carry around. It came with intel T2400 processor, 1.83 GH, Windows XP Media center, 1 GB ram memory. 17" widescreen display. 6 input/output ports. eah pair stacked on top of each other, 1 pair to the side and 2 pairs at the back.
The Inspiron 9400 has been a fantastic work horse for me - Very good laptop

Excerpt: The company I currently work for has always used Dell as the supplier for all its IT needs, which is actually why i had always previously avoided using Dell for my personal equipment. They were always saying that the Customer Service was pretty shoddy, which should have been enough for me - if they can't look after big business, they probably wont look after me.
