Excerpt: We purchased this for one reason only, to run Quikbooks. We thought that it would be adequate for this seemingly simple task. It works, just a a frustratingly slow pace. We are going to see if upgrading the ram is an option.
Excerpt: I am not sure how I feel about this computer it has the ability to do more than it does with duo core 2 processer you would think it would have been faster.....I have a inspiron with duo core and it seems to run better probaly because it has more ram to run off of...why put a smarter duo in a slower computer dell?? I dunno.....I think it's heavy too. and it's not reallly cute it is definitly made for a guy......
Excerpt: i have always used a PC and I've never had a Mac. When i bought this laptop I was a freshman in college and at first it was fine.These computers are very simple and pretty easy to work. However, after about a year the battery hardly lasted anymore and the computer had crashed about 4 times. I was always on the phone with customer service and half the time I couldnt understand what they were saying.
Summary: Bought two. Returned one twice after battery faliure. Kept one for my graddaughter but should have returned it also. While running on Battery the screen is very dark, unreadable unless you are in a dark or dim room, generic dirver will not allow you to adjust brightness while on batt. Plugged in it is normal. I am not pleased with the product.
