Summary: I've owned this laptop for over 4 years now and it is still going strong. Screen is still working just like the first day I got it, all the keys still function, and it can handle almost anything I throw at it. Though this isn't a perfect laptop. One huge issue I had with it was Windows Vista. It was fast at first on the Dell, but after a while it slowed my Dell down greatly.
Summary: I've had this laptop for 5 years now. And I can tell you anything about it. For commercial use and gaming its an awesome computer. Granit you can't play wow on ultra graphics but you can play on fair with no lag. The touch buttons on the top I thought was neat. But I do have to agree that I wish they weren't. Sometimes my disc tray will just eject the disc on its own. But that's rarely. Yes this laptop has poor battery life now mine only lasts about 30min.
Summary: I have owned this laptop for 4 years now. Only problem i have had was the dvd drive that went and the speakers are really not the best. but apart from that it has been brilliant. A few of the review went on to say they had problem but this is really the operating system they give you (Vista).
Summary: Have owned this laptop for 4 years now and it's still going strong. Can still do anything I need to even though it is so old. People are mentioning that keys fall off, I have never had this problem. Never had to perform any repairs on it. People also mention that the touch activated sound buttons have a mind of their own, its probably because they don't clean their laptop so there is residue built up tricking the computer into thinking that you are pressing the buttons,...
Summary: I have more than 2 years with my laptop and it hasn't give me any problem at all. The only thing about it is that is too heavy and that the battery doesn't last as long as i would like it to, but other than that is a great laptop.
Summary: This was my first computer so I have some sentimental attachment to it, but honestly this was a very sub par computer. The biggest problem was Windows Vista. It can't organize files, it's slow, it's clumsy, it's awkward, and it's generally terrible. With Windows 7 the computer performs a little better, but by the time I upgraded my hardware was very degraded and I didn't get a whole lot of improvement in performance. The hardware was the other problem.
