The hinges are made of plastic that's easily cracked (and they did).
China editor
After talking with two customer services reps and a supervisor (explaining the situation in detail), Dell told us to send it in for warranty repair.

Then one day, just about a month after the one year warranty ran out, it would not turn on at all.

This is the Dell Studio 15 inch laptop (Green Colored Case). I think this a great lap top and it gets the job done. I kept reading all the negative reviews and i have no idea why there's so much bad press. I have never once called customer service and i ordered my laptop at Dell directly through their website. I have no reason to contact customer service and i never experienced any problems at all with any of my Dell products. I get so baffled when i read all these negative reviews. My Dell products which i have had for years including a Dell desktop and a recently purchased new netbooks have never been a problem. The desk top i have is more than 6 years old and I never have any problems. It runs great. It can definitely benefit from an upgrade in some areas.

The Studio line is Dell's midrange laptops. The Inspiron being there low end range for consumers that just need a standard laptop. The Dell Studio laptop is completely plastic and it's a bit on the heavy side in my opinion. Maybe because i am so use to my light weight Dell 10 min netbook that i have been spoiled. This is a good lap top. However, i think the flaw in Dell is that their products can get very pricey very quickly. Especially when you are adding in high end features like 6GB RAM rather than 3GB RAM or 2.99GHZ instead of 2.33GHZ etc. You can get the same thing at HP for probably around a hundred dollars less and their quality feels a bit more refined, polished, and sturdy. That being said if you check Dell's website they do have deals going on all the time especially on holidays. But for some reason the price never seems as low as it should be. If you check periodically you will find yourself a deal. I go to that website religiously and build the exact same laptop that I have and it always comes up to more money.

If you're thinking about buying a Dell laptop (or any laptop), this isn't the laptop you're looking for. The Dell Studio 1558 might run perfectly the first few months you own it, but it becomes a miserable experience after that.

Here are just a few of the things my Studio 1558 (running Windows 7) has done in the past year or so that I've had it (and still does), just to prove my point:

- The hard drive that came with the Studio crashed and had to be replaced.
- The Studio constantly crashes from heat. (For a while, I had to restore my system every time this happened.)
- The fan is running nonstop.
- A technologically gifted friend of mine put a disk in and had to pry my computer open because the disk wouldn't eject AT ALL.
- Dell Support was supposed to

I've bought laptops from Dell before. In fact, my previous laptop was a Dell Studio 1721, and I loved it. But because of my experience with the Studio, I'm beginning to doubt that.

We bought two Dell laptops this year: a Studio and a Latitude, both with Windows 7. The poor NVDIA displays constantly go black and have to "recover." The skittish keyboards send key taps flying all over the text that you are entering. Function keys are muddled up with hardware commands, so keyboard commands in Microsoft applications are unaccessible. The psychotic mousepad runs up and down documents with no control. Worst of all these Chinese laptops constantly lock up and require rebooting. Dell support said, "Oh, you've installed some bad software!" We hadn't installed anything. Stay clear! We're stuck with junk!

Bought one for me and one for my daughter over two years ago. She uses here Studio-15 in college. Our lap tops came with Vista and that was a headache unto itself. Cannot blamed Dell for that, Microsoft wins the prize on the failures of Vista. Changed to Windows7 and did not encounter any problems since. The lap top is good, works fine, and has not had any problems.

My issue is with Dell tech support. I have to contend with foreign accents, some are clear but many are not and occasionally I get some accents that are so terrible, I have to hang up and redial. When I describe my problem, I can hear them flipping through the solution sheets to read down a script. If you ask a question off script, they are really lost in a fog. When the good old American technician was at the helm, they would whip you through the solution so fast and it was spot on. The guys and gals knew their stuff. The adage is true; you get what you pay for. Dell pay for cheap overseas tech support and their tech support is worst than 3rd graders.

Back to the topic, the studio 15 is a fine piece of equipment which was complimented by my daughter's college tech support at UNC Charlotte. Just remember, when you buy a computer you are also buying the tech support and Dell's tech support has become awful. It has cause me to reconsider buying another Dell lap top because when I call for assistance, it is what I expect. Not to battle through language barriers, knowledge deficiency, default ignorance, and customers to blame rather than the technician providing me with a solution(s).

I own two of these and didn't realize the hassle I got into. One of the two is hardly usable now. The hinges are made of plastic that's easily cracked (and they did). The motherboard or hard drive also appears to have failed. While my computer is still under warranty, when I called the service center I am told that the cracks must be repaired separately first before they can take a look at the motherboard or hard drive issue. I have used quite a number of Dell desktop and laptops for years but now see my children's perspective of why they prefer the MacBook.
