Ok where to start with this beauty? Well i'll kick off with a little bit about the ordering process as I believe this to be all part of the laptop as if you are already aware or not when you buy a dell computer, you pretty much choose the whole thing to be built to your choice, which if you aks...

Consbulky

**THE LOOK** Although this machine is a bit on the bulky size, weighing in at a middleweight 3.2kg and measuring 36cm wide by 27cm deep and 4cm thick, this laptop looks smart, with its black cover, silver inner lining and its 15.4 inch screen The keyboard section is laid out with simplicity, not...

My experience of Inspiron 1520, I will say from the start that my machine is four years old, and is literally hanging on by the skin of its teeth, but I will base my review on the overall opinion and usage of the laptop. I actually had my laptop free through my internet provider, based on at the...

ProGood Spec

ConsProne to Overheating

When looking for my first laptop I was searching for an efficient and powerful computer. I believe the Inspiron 1520 fits that mould. The Laptop is fairly heavy but with its generously proportioned 15.4 inch screen that is to be expected. The specification is more than ample. I went for the T7500...

Where to start. This was my first laptop and was a very good laptop for the first year. However after the first year the keys started to come loose and there were a few problems with the screen. The laptop was decent at playing games (for example, Call of Duty 4 a modern game) was able to run at a very good frame rate with about half of the effects on. It was also able to display HD Videos. The only real problem with the hardware was that the only graphics card you could get was integrated. However all in all it was a good laptop perfect for beginners.
