“ Good but Pricey”

published 13/09/2004

ProWell styled, solidly built

ConsLittle over priced for spec

This review is about the Dell Latitude D505, though comments about the design of the laptop will apply to any model in the D500 series. Size and Weight This is a mid range laptop, it’s light and compact with excellent battery life and is designed to carried around rather than being a high...

“Dell Latitude D500”

published 10/01/2007

ProGood build quality

ConsExtremely slow

I wish I could recognise the D500 machine the other reviewers of this laptop are describing. The key problem with this product is that at times it becomes so slow as to be almost unusable, even when running bread and butter Office 2000 software. No amount of disk defragmentation can resolve the...

“18 months down the line”

published 21/09/2004

ProI now prefer laptop to PC

Consnone in particular

I have a D505 on loan. I got it with pre-installed Windows XP. Many of the features on this I have never used. But I have played with the voice recognition/dictation facilities - great fun! Nothing to say about technical aspects - I am not a computer buff, merely a computer user. My understanding...

Light weight, but light durability. ABSOLUTELY HAS TO HAVE 1gb to function in a reasonable manner. It will take up to 10 minutes to boot with 512mb. Do not use Norton AV as this really makes it slow. Wifi support is useless and required considerable research just to fix connect problems and Dell support is a joke. Re-installing XP helps the speed but background tasks are real dogs on this machine. This machine SCREAMS on Linux, it just isn't a great Winblows machine.

ConsNot made anymore, Integrated Video makes upgrading...

This computer is for beginners or advanced user's. If you can understand why a muscle car is better than today's "Drive-By-Wire" auto's, you would understand why a D500 is better than a Dual Core or Hyperthreading. With the 2mb Cache, she's a Diamond in the RUFF! I have a Latitude D500 that I got...

There is no such thing as an "entry" level laptop.... There is only what the computer can do well and what it can't. If you are looking for a gaming laptop... This is not for you. If you are looking to run windowsXP reasonably fast, browse the internet, and do office work it more than fills the bills. The Centrilo processor is more than enough to run buisness functions. Always buy the right machine for the job... If your job is buisness.. this should do nicely! If it is still performing slowly then you may want to look into what is making it slow because the D500 is no slouch.
