“A great overall laptop”

Prospeed, easy to use, lightweight,

Consonly one- volume level is low

I have had my Dell Inspiron since 2006 and I have not found a fault with it yet. (Touch wood!) It has survived two years of univeristy with me, being used everyday, and taken a few knocks yet it has not given up on me once. I find the battery life is one of the best I know which is great for...

It is a very simple setup, so quick and easy to start with. Has a good battery life and charges quickly. However it is not the lightest laptop you could go for.

This is my first laptop so I dont have anything to compare it but overall I am delighted with my Inspiron 640m.It was indeed easy to set up and the speed is more than adequate. Not a light object to carry around but for what I need it for it more than fits the bill.The screen is indeed very dark if run off battery but i find it fine when run from the mains.The only downside I found was with Dell themselves as their customer service leave much to be desired. My laptop was delivered 3 weeks late and under the spec I ordered.As yet 2 weeks after delivery I seem to be banging my head against the wall to get these issues resolved.

If you are looking for a laptop that is quick and easy to set-up then this one could be for you. In all it took less than 10 minutes from delivery before everything was fully functional. I have so far experienced no problems using the computer and have kept everything up to date with dells...

excellent build,good battery life.only the weight prevents me from giving a perfect score. It could also use more ram to improve its windows experience score. Mine came with Vista Home Basic preinstalled. It was my first encounter with vista so I am still in the "honeymoon" stage with the OS...

Question

published 15/09/2011

Does it come with a web cam,if not what is recommended?
Open question Answer

Answer

published 18/09/2011

Mine didn't come with a web cam. However, you can buy a webcam from a site called cellular factory. I recommend some of the web cams there like the Dell Inspiron 640m 1.3MP Foot Shaped Webcam/Web Camera for $15.00 - great value and it works quite well. I have one myself.
