This Laptop is an very solid machine. I say this because usually when I pick a laptop up first thing I notice is the need for power and a time delay to load the windows, its like you have to handle the laptop carefully just in fear of delaying the start up. This has been my experience of earlier...

“Inspired by Inspiron?”

ProNice design, easy to use, not too expensive

ConsBig big to carry around every day

I don't own one of these but my friend has just bought one and i've had a fair go on it. Plus i've watched him on it for hours so i thought i'd leave a review as no-one has yet. From my experience people like Dell because they produce value for money products to a high standard. Other people are...

Main criticism, is that the Mousepad occasionally becomes unresponsive , jittery or freezes for a short time. This might be something which is a common problem, as I had read this in another review before I bought the PC. I wonder if Dell are aware of this issue, where an updated driver might...

ProThe perfect budget laptop

ConsLooks like a dell.

At first I was skeptical of a Dell laptop, but after seeing the Inspiron 1720 I was impressed by its features, especially comparative to the price. If you are looking for a highly functional laptop on a budget, this is certainly the avenue to be looking down. So, here's my computer-studdent...

This is a great laptop let down by a couple of things which could easily be remedied by Dell. Pros: Very fast with a great screen (I have a 2.5GHz Core 2 Duo with the 1920x1200 Ultrasharp screen option). Supports 2 hard disks. Looks good and feels as solid as a rock. Excellent full keyboard...

I bought my own Dell inspiron 1720 7-8 months ago and I must say, I LOVE it. My brother also has a Dell Inspiron 9400. Our whole family loves Dell. It has an elegant and fast look, despite the large housing. It is very strong, since it is made from high quality aluminium. I must admit that Dell...
