26 August 2014
Summary: This Dell 610 was the cleanest/nicest laptop I have ever purchased. There was a Password in the BIOS that made me do some on-line searching, but I have discovered work-arounds that allow me to use the computer 100%. The screen and other physical components are exceptional...
Summary: for his age, this laptop runs very well, I am using lubuntu linux and this thing is FAST, I upgrade to 1GB of RAM and new battery, everything for this laptop is very cheap on ebay, so very afordable.
Great starter Laptop for my Boy's as well as adults .....

Summary: The Computer came in working and complete w/cords and attachments the software was installed now it is in the hands of my teenage boys who are using it to practice school work and yes my boys have managed to install some games on it but it will not handle any of the fast moving games so it really is not a gamming toy but for work or in this case it is and was intended for school work..
Excerpt: The Dell c510/c610 has been a lasting laptop! I have now owned mine for 8 yrs and it is still fully operational. With one exception... the screen went blank a couple of months ago. It pops up when starting, but then goes black! External monitor and it's good ta go!
Excerpt: As for the entire C510/C610 system it is awesome and I definitely find it horrible that the screen went totally blank one day, out of no known reason or clue why.... by start up it will go on and then go blank again (black). The usage of the system in itself is easy, great handling and awesome capacity for the entire size of it. The programs were of the greatest that I had had in a long time and miss it terribly.
Excerpt: The Dell Latitude C610 is a wonderfully competent computer for its price, and can take extreme abuse and still keep ticking! To prove its durability, A) I once dropped it about 3 feet onto a hardwood surface, and one month later it still works perfect! B) I leave it online for over a day at a time, and have no problems with it whatsoever. As far as speed, this computer is not meant for 3d gaming or video editing.
My Dell Latitude suits my purpose for what I use it for.

Excerpt: I bought my Dell Latitude laptop to take with me while I am working out on the road. I work pipe line construction. I use it to keep up with my e-mail, do my banking, check my portfolio, and just surf the net. It has all the essential items I need to perform the things I need to do. It is light weight and very portable. It fits in a rather thin case and all of the accesaries associated with it are in it.
Excerpt: The Dell Latitude d610 is the most amazing laptop I have ever owned. It is thin and light, yet super powerful. I just upgraded to 2 gigs of Ram and wow it flies. Programs open and close in the blink of an eye. The wireless lan card is wonderful. It can go on any network anywhere. The wireless internet conection is also very good. I can be like 200 feet away from the router and still get an amazing signal.
Excerpt: I was tired of having to go upstairs to use my computer, just to look something up or do a little work, check my email. So when I rec'd a small bonus, I went online to shop for an inexpensive laptop. Since I did not want to spend too much, I found that a refurbished Lattitude 610 was the best buy for my dollars!! It was not too big, so I can pick it up with one hand, move it from desk to table to lap, no problems. I am so jazzed at how fast it is too!
