Summary: Great Computer! Theirs quite a lot of power in this sucker. Even good for running most video games of to day. Just started playing Metro Last Light on this guy and it can run it on medium settings no problem. As for processing power... It give quite a lot of punch at 2.8 GHZ. Im upgrading it to a dual core 3.06 GHZ Extreme.
Summary: I bought this because my old laptop died, and I am a fan of Windows 7. This refurbished laptop came with a complete fresh install of Windows 7, which I liked. One nice thing about Dell computers is that with the service tag you can instantly pick up any needed drivers for a laptop. There is no need to search by model number etc.
Whatta Deal! Seriously, nothing wrong with older tech (& less expensive)!

Summary: Well, this is my first workstation. Everything's great so far. It's a bit heavier than I'd like, & the power supply is a ridiculous huge brick like cell phones in the early 80's, & the batteries are only good for an hour or so. However, it has plenty of power, & set-ups have gone well - I got this to be a time-machine to run older CAD software (because who can afford to upgrade?
