I got this laptop in december 2004 - it was intended as an 18th birthday present that i would be able to take to university the following september and i was originally going to buy it just before going to uni, but one look at the dell website and i couldnt wait to take this laptop home!

It set me back around £800 - but for this i got the free delivery, carry case and a printer (the printer was part of a promotion at the time).

The computer was delivered just two days after ordering - seven days earlier than quoted. The delivery men were very polte and helpful.

The inspiron 8600c is a mid range dell laptop and i would recommend it to most computer users. It is very easy to navigate and programmes load very quickly.

This laptop is perfect for people like me - who like to use the computer regularly for schoolwork and also for leisure purposes eg. the internet, games. It literally has everything you need, But for those of you who are looking for a superquick laptop with auper amazing graphics, i would recommend the top of the range inspiron model, which one of my uncles owns.

All in all, an amazing buy. I use this laptop every day and have had no problems at all.

I prefer Toshba laptops. They seem slimmer. Stuff to talk about...weight, size, quality of screen, whether it has infrared, bluetooth, wireless. Windows version included, build quality., software included
