This is it!!! This is the new computer I am looking for! I've been using Dell computers for years and they have always been very good to me, so I am partial to them. The price as always been fair as well.
I am looking to replace my old Inspiron which I bought back at the very end of 2009 (it's over 5 years old now). This old computer that I am typing on today has been through hell and back! Today it is held together with electrical tape from many years of rugged use, lugging it back and forth from jobsites day after day. The internal battery in it still works pretty good, too. I only get about 10 minutes out of it, but that is still plenty long enough for me to walk across the house to hook it up elsewhere.
For me, to get 5 years out of it and have it still running pretty efficiently is great. I am overall happy with my previous Dell purchase. But I'd really like something better, faster, stronger... hopefully sturdier!
This model here has pretty much double the speed and memory of my trusty old Dell. It is still a bit pricey. But I would still consider buying it once I have enough saved. It is still about $300 cheaper than my first laptop I bought back in 2005!! And this has so much more to offer!
Check it out on Amazon.com
The 8GB is the big sell to me.
I found another one which is cheaper and has a couple of great reviews:
It looks like the same model to me.
Also one other huge reason I choose Dell is because of the discount parts you can find on www.parts-people.com - Don't buy a spare power chord anywhere else!
