2 out of 5 eggsToo much bad to go with this one

Pros: Pretty cheap price, but comes with consquences

Cons: Feels cheap, junky plastic feels like it would shatter if dropped.
I bought 10 for a client, 1 had to go back as an RMA, Dell tried to play games with me in support had to forcibly tell them to replace the entire thing instead of a specific component.
Hard drive is pretty slow, laptop is fairly slow out of the box.

If you throw an SSD in it, it would probably be much better, but get something that feels decent instead.

The worst part about this laptop is the trackpad. No physical buttons and it double hits on every single one of these 10. Please if you buy this expect to get a mouse to tag along with it. Or better yet, skip this thing all together.

Other Thoughts: It's a good price for an i3 with 4GB of Ram, but it's not worth it. There are tons of other laptops that will do the same job without all of the flaws for the same price. Dell really skimped on this one. 1 of 10 DOA, flaws are consistent throughout the bunch of them.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely beautiful laptop for its price

Pros: Price, build quality, and performance

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: First of all, You get what you pay for.
Dont expect for this laptop to blow you away.
It has budget cheap HDD and RAM and CPU.

However, Overall Performance is excellent for $300 laptop.
($300 if you look around just a little)

I work for GeekSquad at BBY and I have seen many of those laptops. If you are in tight budget, you HAVE to go with this.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the Price

Pros: Decent CPU, moderately expandable, crisp display (despite being low resolution), DVD burner, hinges seem solid, lightweight, decent keyboard, decent battery life (>4 hours when browsing Internet, writing documents).

Cons: Feels a bit flimsy, glossy sides (where the ports are, so easily scratched up), glossy display, speakers are pretty quiet, one RAM slot (instead of two), only has Fast Ethernet (but a USB 3.0 Gigabit adapter is fairly cheap if necessary).

Other Thoughts: My old Studio 1555 was starting to fall apart, so I knew I needed a new laptop. After a few months of research, and a very tight budget (college student), I settled on this machine, and after two months of use, I can say that I'm happy with my choice.

After buying this computer, I maxed out the RAM at 8 GB and installed a 240 GB Intel SSD (originally purchased for my Studio), and this machine is plenty fast for what I need it to do.

It certainly isn't the best built laptop of all time and while I would have appreciated Gigabit Ethernet in this machine, I can certainly say that for the price I paid for it, it's a lot better than most other machines out there (when comparably priced machines are Pentiums or A6's at best).

1 out of 5 eggsHard Drive Faulty - Locks

Pros: Price

Cons: I set the computer up and the hard drive was throttled at 100% almost the entire time it is on. I put one of my extra hard drives in and now it works fine. I would NOT recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Laptop for the Money

Pros: Good price for a mobile i5 CPU. Decent size and quality screen. Internal DVD/CD burner. Fairly light weight. Runs all normal applications just fine. It's a Dell.

Cons: Laptop chassis and keyboard have a cheap look and feel. Kind of flimsy feeling. It's slower than the expensive laptops. Not a laptop for serious gamers or road warriors. It's a Dell.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for an upcoming trip to Europe. I needed an inexpensive laptop for backing up photos on the trip, and also for casual use at home. I wanted something more than a Celeron or low end AMD CPU with a CD burner. It's exactly what I was looking for. The price was great, and it's rather cheap look and feel was no more than I expected. 5 stars for completely meeting my expectations.
