Summary: Pretty amazing laptop for the price. This is PERFECT for young children approaching their teens or in their early teens. Graphic card will allow the playing of simple games like Minecraft, Roblox, etc. Software installation was pretty straight forward. Had a scare with authorizing Windows but don't worry - it will sort itself out once you connect online.
Summary: This laptop is amazingly fast and powerful. It boots in about five seconds, and the wait times are minimal for copying/transfering files and music. The vendor was very helpful when contacted with requests, and I plan to buy another one from them for a gift for a family member.
Summary: I purchased this used notebook to use while my office was under construction. It came with Win. 7 Pro, but none of the updates had been done on the install. After I allowed most of one day for updates, the machine performed very quickly and flawlessly. I have owned other laptops, as a rule I did not like them, but this lap top worked very well. It was not slow or buggy like other laptops I have owned or used. Generally I like DELL products.
I ask a lot of this machine though and am never disappointed.

Summary: I've had the pleasure of owning this laptop for over a year. With regular maintenance it's still as fast as the day I brought it home. I can have multiple open programs and still go right to the internet and have no lag or hang ups. The only thing I've noticed in the negative column is video hardware and memory. I ask a lot of this machine though and am never disappointed.
Summary: Great laptop, outstanding price. Be careful to avoid scratches, I had a few, fortunately nothing major. An i5 processor definitely worth it with 4Mb of RAM speeds everything along beautifully.
