Summary: Very nice machine. Purchased one of these back in 2006 and has been running ever since. With a little work and tech knowledge of hardware issues it has plenty of power to run various software applications. Its heavy but durable. Love it. Running Win 7 ultimate, 64bit. 4gigs of ram, onboard graphics is fine for what I use it for. Upgraded the CPU to a T7600 for core 2 duo for 64bit apps.

Excerpt: I am very happy with my Dell Inspiron laptop. I have owned a few Dell computers and have never had any trouble with them. Their support is great too. I would definately buy another Dell when the time comes.
I would totally pick this computer again if I had to.

Excerpt: I am a huge fan of Dell and knew that I wanted this computer because of its wonderful features. I love the large screen size which cuts down on eye strain. It is also very fast and has lots of memory for me to have everything on my computer that I need.
Excerpt: i bought one Dell Inspiron and used for 1.5 years only. Their coverage is not long enough. One years after I spent $150 for repairment, it broke again. Dell's quality had serious problem. Cheap but insecure!
Excerpt: I own this laptop for a year and is great, i used for video processing and for gaming, runs smoothly. The Nvidia 7900 GS card that my laptop has runs almost everything, and the big screen is very nice for those matters. It does have a couple of cons: Its very heavy, maybe to heavy for a "portable" device, the chipset only support up to 2 MB of RAM. last but not least the inspiron comes with integrated audio wich is not the best for audio/video processing.
Excerpt: Great Laptop. I got it for Christmas this year and it has been nothing but amazing. I haven't had a bit of trouble with it. It's fast and user friendly. I highly recommend. I am usually a mac user, however I think I am now going to permantely switch to PC because this computer has been such a joyous experience.
Excerpt: I bought this as our family's first laptop two years ago. My husband, daughter and I each have our own Dell desktop, so we wanted a portable "toy". I got it with all the bells and whistles, so it's really quick, sharp and ready for any and all tasks. I must state, however, that ours came with Windows XP Home Edition back then. I agree with the others who say it is heavy, but as previously stated, it IS a 17" screen. And the bottom does get very hot. We have not had...
Excerpt: Needed a versatile computer for personal and professional use and this fit the bill perfectly. Powerful, with lots of memory and speed. I wanted a large screen laptop that was portable and this one is. While I did upgrade from the basic version, I could not be happier with my machine. It may be a little heavy but it is well worth it. I found a fantasitc targus case for it and now it goes everywhere i do. Highly recommended.
Excerpt: I love this notebook. I have had no problems with it so far. I have not had to use the service yet ,but that is a good thing. I was told this product has excellent service.I bought this notebook mainly because of the good name dell has. I was not use to vista but it is very simular to xp. It is fast enough for me. I don't play games on it so i really don't have input on that. I do recommend this item.
