Summary: I bought this and it was one of my best purchases, I have been using it for programming and it gets the job done, although the memory cap at 1g is a bit annoying, it is compensated by its low price, power and portability. It can run San Andreas and compile APKs, all the basics covered. That said, when it was sent to me it came well packaged, although the styrofoam was everywhere, the laptop survived.
Summary: This particular series of Dell Laptop has more than stood the test of time in my life. In 2005 I rolled my Tractor Trailer over and my D600 was literally bent into a semicircle with about a 15 inch radius. I opened it to make the letter "S" and then proceeded to remove the hard drive, battery, cd burner, memory, and keyboard. I purchased a used barebones d600 for about 30 dollars and put all of my parts from the old system in this one and pressed the power button.
Works just fine but is slow compared to a new computer

Summary: Bought this because I have several older programs that wouldn't run under Windows 8 on my new computer. Needed Windows XP. Works just fine but is slow compared to a new computer. But, hey! At the age of 76, most of what I do is slow!
Summary: The laptop I ordered was absolutely everything I expected. I'm very happy with my purchase and got it at an unbelievable price. I am however only using it for homework and video streaming, no downloading. Still, totally satisfied!
Summary: I love everything about this laptop. It's portable, durable, lightweight and runs pretty smoothly. The only problem I had is it doesn't hold a charge longer than 30mins. I have to do my school work with an outlet nearby but that no prob. for me.
