Before going to Dell online, I saved the cash I thought would need for what I wanted in a laptop. I got a pleasant surprise when I got much more than I has hoped for in a laptop. My inspiron has been great. Internet connection is so much more enjoyable than with my desktop. Word processing is also dreamy word uses compatability mode and reads docs from my old xp. This is a trip. I thought I would have lost so many files when I upgraded, everything worked smoothly. Thank you DELL! I am going to purchase an inspiron 17r for a friend soon, she needs a larger screen. LOL I have yet to find a con with this product. And I use it daily it is either on my lap or the end table nearby at all times. I even use it with google maps to get a few truck driving friends out of tight spots and give them local directions to their shippers and receivers. With my old computer the satelite images slowed me terribly. my inspiron keeps the info flowing. When you are assisting in the navigation of an 80,000 lb vehicle, this is a definate plus. 5 out of 5 stars DELL Thanks again.
Pros:watching video files, managing my kindle, reading e books, keeping in touch with family
