Title:

Will buy another, but miss the old keyboards...

PostedMarch 25, 2013
Yes, I would recommend this product
I used a Vostro 1500 for about 5 years, two keyboards, upgraded cpu and ram. I really liked that machine. This machine is definitely better in most respects. The big negative is the Chiclet keyboard which lacks any tactile feedback and is none too friendly on the hands so I use a K800 at the desk. The display is very nice, HD is acceptable but not stellar (already bought an SSD), a little fan noise, quite light. The one other ding is ram, HD, etc. are stashed under the keyboard and that sucker is not at all easy to get out without either bending the keyboard's too-thin aluminum back plate, or scratching the bezel, or both.

It is what it is.

It's a solid laptop, ubuntu is quick, the hdd performance is just pitiful. I wish dell would offer ssd on all pcs/laptops they sell. This laptop would be a stone cold killer with a ssd even with 2 stalks of celery. graphics are good, screen is nice. I'm thinking of buying 2 more but with i3 4gb and swapping hdd to sdd. This one is used by my 6 year old to play games, installed and internet. wireless is great. I replaced unity w/ gnome classic.

Vostro 2520 laptop

PostedFebruary 13, 2013
Yes, I would recommend this product
Found this to be an excellent entry laptop. Not the lightest or thinnest but feels robust enough. Installed software was either not installed or absent (Office Trial) and needed a lot of OS Updates.
Pros:solid
Cons:heavy

Fantastic PC for developers

PostedDecember 4, 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
Superb product for windows8 developers.
+:
1) antiglare display
2) 500GB HDD
3) win8pro*
4) zero heating problem
5) zero operation sound, extremely silent.
6) comfortable palm rest.
7) best in class chick-let keyboard
9) large trackpad, high range wifi, nice k/b
10) 5hrs battery backup
11) dell style
12) got free backpack.
-ve:
1)display has less viewing angle (but better than other shiny tfts); I suggest dell should give more option in display other than HD, like HD+, FHD , IPS panel etc; so that we can select better display during checkout.
2)should also give back-lit keyboard option.
What I did after I purchased :
1)upgraded to 6GB.
2)got INR699 upgrade to win8pro.
Better that buying any assembled PC.
Pros:software development
