At the price you reviewed it at I agree there's plenty of more desirable competition.However I bought mine in January for 𧽁.99 inc VAT which made it a bit of a bargain.I've got a graphics card capable of playing all the latest games in medium to high detail (8600m GT), a large hard drive, DVD RW, 2GB memory and a speedy core 2 duo processor.It makes a great desktop replacement. I decided I'd like something portable I could use everywhere rather than have to go up to my room and boot up the desktop. Compared to a desktop the graphics performance is poorer but so long as you drop the detail a bit its fine! On a small screen (15.4 inches) you don't need such high resolutions.Runs cool too and has been reliable. The only problem I've had has been the hard drive. Avoid samsung if you get the choice. It beeped and clicked loudly and smart values got worse. I've converted that into an external backup device and have purchased a western digital scorpio 320GB. Makes it quicker still
Hello, I bought a wonderful Dell Inspiron 1520 in July, 2007, and I really love it. Even today this laptop is the best performing laptop I have ever had. It is fast, the display is extremely bright, clear, and sharp. The build quality is exceptional, and the performance of my 1520 is second to none. My 1520 is tweaked out with features. The connection, Bluetooth, built-in webcam and mic, are all also exceptional and perform extravagantly. I recommend this laptop to anyone. With the right configurations, which is what I have, this laptop can be used for anything, from basic computing to advanced pc work to gaming. it is also an extremely fast machine. Thanks for reading!!
