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.
