I can't remember the specifics of the older model Dell laptop I had for four years, but I loved it & it treated me well. The only reason I bought a new one was because the hard drive popped out of the old one, & before I realized it could just be popped back in I had already ordered the 1525.

This computer is like an $800 headache. I don't even care that it came with Vista, because honestly it hasn't given me that many problems & I'm not picky about my operating platform, so long as it gets the job done. (Although, I will say, it comes with a completely useless graphics driver, & I had to downgrade to the previous edition of the driver to get basic games to run.) I've been lucky & haven't had the battery or trackpad problems everybody else complains about. But even as one of the "lucky" ones, I'd had to deal with my fair share of crap from this model.

1. The left mouse button is permanently stuck in the down position. It still functions, but it doesn't have that satisfying "click" that mouse buttons are supposed to have. This may sound like a superficial problem, but it's not. You want to know when you've clicked the mouse. As far as I can tell from browsing message boards & forums, everybody who has this computer has this problem. As an Inspiron 1525 owner, it's something you'll just come to accept.

2. Like many people have noted, it gets hot. Dangerously hot. Not a "lap" top.

3. The screen! Bane of my existence!

a. First of all, there's no clasp or magnets to ANYTHING to hold the screen down when it's closed. What's up with that, Dell? If you're carrying your laptop in a bag or something the screen just flops around, bouncing as it pleases off the keyboard. Well, you know... WHO EXPECTS LAPTOPS TO BE PORTABLE ANYWAY?

I bought the Dell Inspiron 1525 as a high-school graduation gift for my daughter last year. She took it to college and had nothing but problems. The laptop would shut down for no apparent reason. We spent hours on the phone with Dell support who could not fix the problem. Since that time I have done a number of internet searches and found that this particular model has a tendency to overheat, which causes the laptop to automatically shut down. End of story - I bought my daughter an Apple Macbook and she is very happy. Stay away from Dell.

This laptop is total crap. I wouldn't have even given it 1 star! I think I had it for 3 months before the hard drive died taking all of my files with it. Luckily I still had a warranty so they replaced it for me after a few hours on the phone and them making me try a bunch of stupid things that didn't work. Then shortly after that my memory gave out. When I called there they told me to reseat the memory. I did, and the laptop turned back on. I didn't realize that one of the memory chips had burned out completely and it was only running on 1 GB. I should have had 3GB. I didn't realize it until after my warranty was up.
They outsourced their customer service to India. Try getting them to understand anything you are saying. Its like talking to a box of rocks. I'm not a computer genius but even I knew what the problem was. I argued on the phone with him for hours. They are useless. I will never buy another Dell nor would I recommend it to anyone. Which is a shame because I have owned 3 Dell computers and they were all reliable. I think they are losing more and more customers with every computer they send out.

I've had this computer for 2 years and some months (got it in November of 2008). It's been a headache. The hinges broke fairly quickly, the battery stopped charging, it crashes often, it becomes extremely hot to where it burns skin if it touches it, the screen if coming apart, and the mouse pad doesn't seem to work well. I asked dell for help after realizing that this was occurring with numerous inspiron 1525 laptops and they pretty much gave me the finger. This is the only purchase I have ever regretted. Don't buy a dell. As a matter of fact, don't even accept it as a gift.

Dell has had problems with this line of laptops. Although you have many features and seemingly high end components, you will be disappointed with performance.
Primarily, you will be very dissatisfied with:
- the trackpad pointer, which is erratic and buggy for which Dell has no fixes, nor are any forthcoming
- the CD/DVD tray phantom ejection problem, which is also well documented by users on Dell's own customer web site; again no fix forthcoming
- loads of adware/Dell-promos which get annoying and will make you wipe your HDD to start fresh.
Avoid the Inspiron line altogether. Dell has dropped the ball completely here.
Disclaimer: I currently have a higher end Dell Inspiron with a full Core2Duo/250GB/3GB. I have tried to use the Dell/Best Buy Geek Squad coverage, but this is a un-usable perk, since Dell will do nothing except refer you to Best Buy, who will insist on taking the laptop from you for an indeterminate period (last time it was for 2 months, with them saying they couldn't fix it, and provided another faulty replacement). I cannot give up my only PC and send it to limbo! Just what do they expect me to do with all my private and personal data???!!!
Again, do yourself a favor and AVOID DELL. If not, then you have only yourself (and Dell) to blame!
