Summary: This vendor can expect to do business with me again. I bought my Vostro 1520 in March 2010. It's been a well built, dependable, and versatile laptop. Honestly, I've been amazed at the abuse it has taken, and that it continues to work smoothly. The outer casing was beginning to look quite rough. That's really all I bought this one for, the outer casing. Today my old laptop has a new home. It continues to work well, and now it looks new again.
Summary: The first one arrived and worked fine until the next morning when the spring under the ENTER key came loose and stuck under the SHIFT key. Also it seemed to lock up when it went into sleep mode. I received a second one and it works great.
Summary: I think the reviews for this laptop are skewed because only people with bad experiences were vocal. I bought this laptop (the 1520) for $700 with a dedicated 512 Mb video card, and it is an excellent inexpensive machine. It has been with me on the airplanes and cars, traveled around the world twice, plugged in and on the battery, in the bag and without the bag, just shoved under the seat in front of me - it just works.
Excerpt: A few weeks before I started college, my father one day surprised me with a brand new laptop. I new I was getting a new laptop, but I personally preferred a laptop for gaming or video editing, but to my dismay, I was given the Dell Vostro 1520.
Summary: I got this laptop for a graduation gift. This was last year. Ever since I've had it, I've had to replace the hard drive at least six times, it overheats in 10 minutes, the battery was shot in six months, and it currently has many issues. Now, it won't even boot up past the Dell logo screen. I am only here to tell you all who are thinking about buying this, you can get a better laptop at Wal-Mart for $198, and Dell is telling me about "Fee Based" Assistance.

Summary: Comments about Dell Vostro 1520 Notebook: Pros: Good value for the money. It is fast and the Dell 1397 wifi works well. The screen is bright and does not suffer from annoying reflections. Cons: The fan is very quiet. Barely noticeable. But, it is on all the time. Will it get louder as time goes on and the bearings wear? The internal speakers at their loudest setting do not produce an adequate sound volume.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Fast, Good Battery Life, Large Screen, Lightweight
