I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron. I usually work from my desktop, but wanted a little flexibility when I wasn’t at home. The base model came with a few good things, but I definitely wanted to upgrade some things like the Digital screen, integrated webcam, and of course integrated bluetooth and travel mouse. Three months out I can’t be more please with my purchase. Of course saying this you have to realize that this model isn’t your rough and rugged type laptop. I use it for around home and when traveling. It is not my primary computer so I haven’t loaded a ton of programs on it either. I have the basics. Office 2007, ftp program, Microsoft WebExpression and Skype. So far so good. Even running Vista doesn’t slow me down. It has 3 gigs of RAM and a 250 hard drive. For a portable backup PC I’m very happy.
