I got this laptop as a Christmas/graduation present from my parents. Overall, I'm so pleased. The battery life is amazing, the display is awesome, and the fact that it already came with Windows 7 was really convenient. And it's so lightweight! As a web design major, I carry this thing around everywhere. My previous Dell brickbook nearly dislocated my shoulders. I'd recommend maybe getting a different color if you're worried about fingerprints, though, as they're quite noticeable. The only negative thing I have is the touch pad gestures. I thought that the "pinch" zoom in/zoom out features would be really handy but while browsing the web it would often zoom in and out on me without me doing much. But I just disabled that feature and it's great otherwise. :) It's a great buy, I'd recommend it to anyone.

I have owned Dells for the past 10 years and have never had one issue with any of their machines. This laptop is no exception. I would recommend the laptop for the average user who isn't a big gamer and isn't working on memory-intensive High Def video editing.

I have had a Dell desktop for a long time and have always been happy with their products and service. I had a tough time deciding if I was going to get this particular laptop as there were a few very negative reviews regarding their service. I decided to give it a go despite the negative reviews and although I have only had this laptop a day, I am extremely happy with it. The screen is bright and clear, the keyboard is easy to use and not cramped and difficult to navigate, the laptop weight is the most surprising thing to me. I thought it would be much heavier! All in all, I am very pleased with the entire experience. Especially how quickly Amazon got it to me. Normally Dell makes you go through a laundry list of "personalization" steps, and then it takes a long time for them to "build" it. I guess a lot of people want or need to personalize their laptops, but this one was perfect for me and I love how simple it was to buy.

I have been very happy with this laptop. I have had the laptop for a year now, and it is a great laptop. I paid the extra to get more memory and a good CPU and I haven't regretted it. It is a good laptop with many great features.

The Pros: It is a fast laptop with a very good picture. The sound is pretty good for built in speakers. Good battery life (although I upgraded to a 9-cell to get even more life). It will run a good many processes at a time. I work in a marketing and design firm and there are times that I have IM, email, several web browsers, Excel, and music all running and it does not slow down. I have never had issues with the keyboard like others have mentioned. I have used this to type many long papers and reports and it works just fine. I like having a number pad on the side of the keyboard. It makes it easy to do calculations and to enter numbers in Excel.

The Cons: It is a large laptop. This would not be a good laptop for someone who will be walking around carrying it. It is not too heavy, but big enough to make it cumbersome for a classroom setting or a board meeting. I have enjoyed having multimedia buttons at the top of my keyboard, but it would be nice to make them separate from the F1-F12. Fingerprints can be an issue if that bothers you.

Overall: This is a good computer for your average user. Someone who does a lot of gaming or who travels a lot would probably find this a little disappointing. Anyone else would find that this computer is a great machine. It is big, but it can do what you ask it to do.

I bought this laptop after 3 months of very extensive research. For the price and the specs it seemed like the best possible choice. Boy oh boy was I wrong. After only 3 months I started to have problems with the charger. The laptop would only work if plugged in, it wouldn't charge and if the charger was even bumped, the computer would shutdown due to lack of power. So, called Dell and after a lengthy discussion to many other problems I'd been having as well, turns out the motherboard needed to be replaced, the whole charging housing, the hard-drive and the wireless card. I will say, I had great customer service and my laptop was returned quickly, but I did have to send it in. But, when I got the laptop back, they must've put in a different charger housing because my original plugin barely fits the hole, which was octogon before and is now round.
It has now been 1 year that I've had it and the screen is going out. There's something wrong with the hinge and it makes the screen do very funny things and I have to jiggle it until the screen is clear. So, this is the worst laptop ever made. It's just kind of cheap as well. The plastic on it is awful.

I got a great deal from Dell for a refurbished Inspiron 1750. There were no surprises, I knew what I was getting, and I've been very happy with it since. I wanted to balance the reviews for this, because 1 was a Dell customer service review, which has nothing to do with the product. It's capacity is way above what an average Internet/Word user would need, and the weight considering the size is lighter than most 17+ inch screens.
