Excerpt: Can't believe the other reviewer gave it one star for a dead battery. I recenlty ordered a battery for a similar Dell laptop and it was less than $15 online and is working well. These computers, while a little dated, are still plenty powerful for the day to day stuff that most of us use laptops for. They usually have separate dedicated graphics cards which means all your video/photo work or game play will be that much smoother.
Summary: I'm very pleased to have made this purchase it runs great it came everything most laptops don't come with hard drives or ram cards of cd roms their just bare bones this laptop was ready to up and run I wish every computer was as up and running like this one thanks
Summary: We needed a basic well functioning Widows 7 machine. For the money, this is a great deal. The unit that arrived was clean and showed no signs of abuse, especially for the age of the unit. MS Office pre-installed a super plus. Going to order a second unit.
Older Laptop still has what it takes and you can find them cheap. I have 6!

Summary: I got one with no hard drive installed but have been repairing and building computers for the last 20 years or so. These are business laptops so they are built well. Great older laptop that still works like a horse. If you can get the laptop and parts cheap and know what you are doing you can have a reliable laptop. Put in 3 or 4 gigabytes of ram that you can find on Ebay and get a SSD hard drive on Newegg and you have a fast system for cheap.
