The mouse is also tricky.

Mine is a year and a half old, and I'm aching for the day when I can burn it and purchase a new one.

I had tried to order this laptop with the 10 key layout version, but was told it had been sold out. We opted for this one and it is a good laptop for our needs. We had a copy of windows office that we installed, because it only comes with a bare bones trial version, hence the price.
I can have Excel, Internet Explorer, and Windows Media player all working at same time without problems. Or my daughter can play games online and it works fine. Not great, but fine.
It burns DVDs and has a webcam for Skyping. So it has almost all the stuff, just not the 10 keypad. Battery life is good. For a regular user this is a solid laptop for the price.

I like the new laptop. Always had good service from the Dell desktop we had. Had a Toshiba laptop but it was junk from the get-go. The Dell is plenty fast for my needs - web surfing, e-mail, a few spreadsheets, etc. A couple of complaints - I adjusted the touchpad but it still seems way too sensitive. Also could do without McAfee popping up every little while warning me of how much danger I'll be in once the 30 days of protection expire.

Overall I'm very satisfied. It was an easy set-up out of the box and so far does everything I need it to do and very well.

I bought this laptop because it was cheap and it did all the basics that I needed it to do for school. However, a cheap price got me a cheap quality laptop. Within a year, the battery completely died and I can no longer be mobile with my laptop. For a $300 laptop, the battery is $60 some dollars. I wasn't happy about that. The mouse is also tricky. It's extremely sensitive. It will also randomly stop working completely and I have to get a secondary mouse to plug in until it works again (usually within a minute). This laptop is fine for someone that needs it until they can afford something better. It is fairly fast, at least it is in my opinion. Also the design is neat, but it's too cumbersome for someone who wants to be very mobile. It's heavy and thick, especially for its time. The webcam is not very good either. In fact, it changes the colors in the picture to something completely different. I'm not sure why. I've messed with the settings, but nothing helped. Mine is almost two years old and I'm already searching for a new one.

I have this laptop with windows 7 on it, and it has given me more trouble than any computer I've owned before or since. The first problem I had was a power supply problem fried the hard drive. Oh well, these things happen from time to time. Called dell support and got a new harddrive installed (which they incorrectly assured me would have all the original programs on it). Went about my day. Problem two arose a little while later. The computer completely locked up. Hard restart resulted in windows not being able to boot. Startup repair does nothing, whether run from the reinstallation disc or from the computer recovery partition. Since the computer was no longer under warrenty by this time, I recovered my files using a drive enclosure, formated, and reinstalled windows. which worked for about a week. Just enough time to get it just how I wanted before it did exactly the same thing. Looking to replace the harddrive, but I don't have high hopes for that solution.

The computer doesn't come with much processing power or ram compared to most decent computers now, and won't be doing much more than internet browsing and using microsoft office. Dell support is crap and their build quality leaves something to be desired in anything but their flagship products.

tl;dr: this computer is not reccomended

I got this laptop for $299 so I thought it was a good value. Not so much. The screen is crisp and clear but the system pauses when launching a new task or even typing. It has Windows 7 on it and if you right click on something, a menu should pop up immediately. On this one, it takes as much as 30 seconds! I constantly think I missed clicked but it's just the laptop deciding to take a time-out for some reason. The same thing happens when browsing the internet.

I'm a computer tech, so I ran every test I could think of and the memory, processor and hard drive tested fine. I formatted the system several times. I used several versions of Windows 7: both 32 and 64 bit with the same results. I then installed Ubuntu v12.10 both 32 and 64 bit. Same annoying pausing of up to one minute. Something that should take me 5 minutes takes 15 with all the pausing. It never totally locks up but it is VERY frustrating. I have used a lot of Dells and have been generally happy, but this is the exception. All the components are good quality but there is just some errata that Dell never resolved and now I'm stuck with it. I would give this away and purchase a new one but I wouldn't wish this kind of frustration on anyone. Stay away from this product.

i will have to say this is the worst laptop i have ever owned. i had a problem with it after about a month of owning it. some of the keys would stop operating at random times. the two buttons used to navigate the mouse totally quit working. so, i have to double click the touch pad to be able to do anything, which is a pain because it calls for 3 or 4 clicks. i had to buy a wireless mouse to be able to navigate effectively on the computer. my main complaint i have is about a week after owning the laptop it wouldn't charge at all. it would say the electrical current is low and it would operate slow if i plugged it in. come to find out, i have to have it in the same place every time i plug it in and the laptop to charge. which is about a 20 minute task each time i want to charge my laptop. the charger is a circular one so i had to spend about 3 hours finding the location that it will charge in order for me to mark the location. all in all, a really awful buy and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone ever.
