I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 series laptop. It has a 15" screen, which most people seem to not like, but I enjoy the smaller screen as opposed to the 17" screen.
It runs Windows XP operating system and has 512MB of system RAM. The computer's processor is perfect at 1.50 GHz, 598 MHz on battery, for playing games and enjoying graphic programs.
All in all, I've not had any problems with the functioning of this computer. The problems that I have encountered have been with the manufacturing of the computer and it's battery and power supply. The screws have backed out too many times to even remember how many, and I would call customer service and they would send me out new screws. I tried to explain that I had the screws and that my issue was that they wouldn't stay in. They finally told me to use rubber cement. I did and they still continue to back out. When the screws back out, the wires become exposed at the hinge, where the screen meets the keyboard part of the laptop. They become pinched and at one time, they become damaged and Dell sent a repairman out and he fixed it. That has been about 5mos ago, and I'm still having the same issues.
As for the battery and power, I've had to replace the power cord 4 times in the 8 months that I've had my laptop. For some reason, it just stops connecting correctly and you have to play with the cord to get it to work. It is very annoying to have to continually manipulate the cord to get it to make the connection to power the computer and/or charge the battery. When I've called to require assistance about the cord, I'm always told the same thing, "Buy a new one". I've done that over and over and Dell only offers one type of power cord for this particular model so it's obvious the problem is with this particular model of power cord.
The battery has been replaced twice and this last battery seems to be much better. Other than those problems, I've been extremely happy with my Dell computer. I've never had a system problem and all of the components such as the disk drive, CD/DVD Burner, the WiFi system work very well and I really wouldn't trade it for anything, except perhaps a more reliably manufactured laptop.
