    Overall: I purchased this for my younger brother who just joined college... Earlier was bit reluctant to buy Ubuntu Laptop but after seeing the price difference of compare Laptop I made the decision. nnI had my first hands on it and all the heavy softwares including MATLAB was an easy install and processing was quite fast and massive storage... I dont think he will be needing any Hard Disk soon. Played few games as well, quite good.nnOverall a good choice...

    Overall: As a student doing my MBA i was looking for a no frills laptop. I have been a Dell user for the past 5 years and was looking for the same. The inspiron had is a no frills laptop with the basic config that does the job pretty well. The 1 TB HD ensures i have enough space for my academic and entertainment needs. The build quality as usual is great and the best part is the battery life is good (important during lectures). The touch pad is a little disappointing and could have been better. Takes time getting used to.nnOverall a good laptop at this price. Being a Dell you needn't be worried about the service.
