Summary: Anyone who purchases an item like this at this price point and can't troubleshoot, repair and upgrade themselves should not indulge in negative reviews. These are incredibly solid machines built rugged tough and simple like an old Chevy or Ford pickup. Dell still supports. They are easily repaired and upgraded within the constraints of the core engine and display. Inexpensive parts and upgrades available and it is super easy to work on even for a clutsey rookie.
Selling at under $300 bucks on Ebay, it's amazing bang for the buck!

Summary: I've actually used this model for years - since it was first released. It's a powerful laptop and now that you can find them so cheap on Ebay, I've picked up two more. It runs Windows 7 very smoothly and probably the only drawback is that it tops out at 8GB of RAM.
Summary: In the computer I've got, almost everything is better than the description: much bigger Hard Drive DVDRAM (not combo) one of the best video adapters available for this model a key or two on the keyboard doesn't function well, but with such a good computer who cares. Thank you!
