"Dell D600"

This is a sound investment for anyone.

The machine is so easy to use that it would be perfect for a first-timer. At the same time, it has everything the more advanced user requires.
It comes with Windows XP, MSN messenger and all the usual programmes.

The on-screen style and layout are very clear, making the system simple.

This laptop installs all new hardware (printers, scanners) with complete ease, which is handy for those of us who get angry when technology goes wrong!

The machine is strong and very durable. I think mine will stay in shape and style for many years to come.

The retail price is around £1,300. Look out for a second hand one as it will probably be in an 'as new' state.

    This tells nothing really about the laptop in question!

    You included some good points in your review but it is a good idea to include more information and detail.
