4.0 out of 5 stars Bargain Notebook, January 4, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dell D620 Laptop Duo Core with Windows XP (Electronics)
I purchased the D620 for my daughter in college when her 2 yr old HP notebook died due to an overheating problem (long story). After verifying that the D620 worked properly by connecting to the internet and installing XP SP 3, I moved over one of the RAM chips (for a total of 1.5 GB) and the harddrive from the HP. I then installed Windows 7 and recovered her data files (I didn't really expect a college student to use the flash drives that I gave her for backups). Finally, I installed software including Office 7. Throughout the process the D620 performed flawlessly. I tested it by running DVDs, Office apps and videos over the internet (after I set up a wireless connection). This is one fine notebook, very fast and with a good display. Its only "short comings" are obvious from the specs, i.e., no web cam, no media slots and no DVD burner. But these are clearly minor issues given the price.

Does this have blu-ray on it? I'm looking for a laoptop with windows xp that also has a blu-ray player already installed into it (my old laptop is fried, and even if it wasn't the first thing to die on it was my cd drive). I'll ask on other comkputers too to see what people say.

It depends on the company you purchased it from. I purchased a Dell Latitude 620 XP Laptop and it kept asking for 25 characters to be put in for a product key and that is the License number. The number was on the bottom of the laptop, but could not be successfully entered into the computer, and it displayed end of License. This was not refurbished as I requested just a used computer not repaired by Used-PCS Computer company. There is a scam out there involving this 25 digit License number that has supposedly been over-written. There is a 3rd party Microsoft that is not actually affiliated with Microsoft lying about needing 25 characters for broke and refurbished laptops. You cannot enter a license number into a refurbished computer. The computer companies that are implementing this scam should be ashamed of themselves. Companies like Walmart, Sears, and Amazon should investigate and ask for the year these laptops were purchased. I am waiting for my refund now. There are some good computer companies that offer help and have an excellent product. If there is such a 25 digit over-written License number Microsoft should have record of it like Dell. Big Country
