I have had my Dell Inspiron Dual Core Laptop for a couple of years now. I bought it at first mainly to have my own personal device from which to work (I work from home online and my family shares the desktop computer for entertainment purposes). I bought this laptop for my home office and because it would be portable so I could work on the go or when travelling if needed. After purchase, it quickly became my go-to computer for all uses.

I use it more than my desktop for personal use and entertainment, and it has become my main school computer (I attend courses online). While I am not necessarily a tech wiz, I do consider myself fairly knowledgeable about computers and their capabilities. I can say that this computer’s design is both visually and ergonomically appealing, and its processing capabilities are suitable for all but the most avid PC gamers.

It has a decent battery life when not plugged in unless you are playing a game or using an application that requires more than 25% of the CPU by itself. The graphics, in my opinion, are above average, but I never have been one for fancy video visuals. My only complaint would be sometimes having to plug external speakers into it because some video/audio is too quiet with the laptop’s speakers set at maximum volume, but this isn’t so much the computer’s fault. I’ve also never been a huge fan of laptop touchpad mouses, so I do not use mine – I have a plug-and-play USB mouse instead.

Overall, the computer’s main purpose is for my work, and it has served that and all other purposes very well. Despite being a couple of years old (and you know how fast technology is always changing), the system has never given me any serious problems and still performs excellently. For its price, I would recommend this computer as a great value.

    I have had my Dell Inspiron Dual Core laptop for nearly two years now, short of a month. I liked the look of it with its matte black cover and its 15.6-inch WLED screen. This size screen is big enough for what I do with my laptop; work as a web writer and watch my favourite movies and clips online. Read more
