I bought this laptop for use in my PhD study. I was looking for a Desktop replacement verging on a mobile notebook. After spending a number of hours in shops and on the internet viewing different computers from different companies, this one really caught my eye. The specifications were exactly what i was looking for, and Dell lets you customize many of the hardware components which was a plus.
Also when i bought this one, there was an offer for free delivery and double memory. Even without that for the same specification there wasnt another company that could match the price of this laptop.
As soon as i got the laptop (7 days earlier than i was told) i ran a number of bench mark tests on it. One of them in particular amazed me. Using 3d Mark 2001 I was completely taken by shock with the quality of the graphics. This laptop far outperforms my old computer let alone any laptop I have ever seen.
Though this may not be the most powerful laptop on the market, I cant see why you would want anything more than this! I have played Doom 3 with high graphics settings and it runs with no problem at all. Any game that i have played on it runs fine. The widescreen makes watching DVD's far more enjoyeable as well as TV using a USB DVB receiver. Also having the TV out port on the back means i can connect my laptop to the TV to watch DVD films on the big screen.
Though it has a wireless network card, i do not have any other wireless hardware to connect to, so can not comment on that aspect as of yet.
I would strongly recomend this laptop to anyone who is looking for an all around Desktop replacement or a Mobile notebook computer. It may weigh more than some laptops, but who really cares about weight anyway (not me)!
