Besides those two issues, the laptop works great, looks great, feels great and the price is great!
Very nice design and color
Fan is quiet
10 key keypad
Plays Everquest 2! I'm happy with that for basic graphics card.
Battery life, may get lucky and get about 2 hours on full charge, so don't expect to get too far away from an outlet.
Keyboard- feels kinda cheaply constructed, but not that bad, Dell had to save money somewhere. Also, keyboard feels a little cramped with 10 key option.
Overall a very good laptop for the price if you're looking for one under $500. Suites my needs very well. I would definately recommend to friends.
On the positive side, my machine was super durable. I really beat this computer up, and over the 18 months I used it, it never let me down. I did have to ship it back to Dell twice, to replace two motherboards, a battery, a hard drive and a heat fan (or was it three times? It was a lot). I can't blame Dell for the failures - I was to blame, or circumstances, but Dell did the repairs without objection. Which reminds me of another small problem: in order to replace the hard drive, you have to pry the keyboard off. Removing and reinstalling the keyboard was beyond my capacities, so I had to pay Dell to do it for me. Why it's designed like that, I have no idea.
In addition to an admirable durability and sturdiness through all the rough use, the very best thing was the super quiet heat fan - I could barely hear it! Sometimes I wondered it was on or not, it was so quiet. And the fan did not appear to slow the processor, which can sometimes happen. Nice.
I'd give Dell overall a B+ for the machine - it's durable, quiet, powerful, buy the look and feel could use an upgrade. I liked it enough to get another Inspiron, this time the Inspiron 15. After all the money Dell spent on repairs, it was the least I could do.
