the quality of this dell laptop is great. it is easy to take around and is about the size of a regular laptop which makes easy to operate. I love all the componets and features that dell had to offer. I chose many products to fit my needs. I think that everyone should get one likfe this. Also the speed of logging on and off is very fast. I am able to take my laptop anywhere and still get reception so that i can use others wireless access. I have taken it with me on vacation and didnt think that it would work around the area that i was in.  The area that i was in was out in the middle of no where but my laptop was able to pick up a signal. So i was very pleased with what it had helped me do. I always take it with me when i have business trips. And in my spare time i use it to play games. but i mainly use it for business and when i do get to use it for personal use i put download pictures on here and send emails of things that i have seen, visited, and what i have done. IT is easy to be able to download onto here. And when you are on here the program that dell has on this laptop is great and easy to figure out. Even a child can figure this out. that is what i love about this laptop. I am so glad that i took the time to do research and to study this laptop online before i purchased it. Dell has an easy to use webiste and lets you add features that you want before purchasing the products that they offer. You can build you computer or you can purchase what they already have. So dell is always the way that i will go with. I have used compaq and hp and i just not like the quality that they offered. Even though they said that their speed was suppose to be fast, it actually was not. So i purchased a dell and i loved it and now have laptops and desktops for both my children, myself, and my husband. I have also talked family into using it and they also like the quality that they offered and will never switch to any other product. Thank you for making dell easy and having such great quality.

Dell laptops used to be some of the best.  With this one, I'm concerned they're slipping.  It's not an awful laptop, but it has it's annoyances.

It's built...well, averagely.  I think the construction is not overly sturdy, but for the average home user, it should be fine.  Some of the initial annoyances with Windows Vista and hardware incompatibilities were very frustrating.  However, Dell has, eventually, fixed most of these with firmware and driver updates.  I can blame that partially on Dell and Partially on Microsoft.

I have had to reinstall the OS three different times over the 4 years I've owned the laptop over strange things like keys repeating themselves or not responding at all.  I was sure it was a hardware issue, but each thing that cropped up went away when i reinstalled the OS and the drivers and such.  Even after reinstalling everything right back to the way it was before, the problem never happened again.

Support from Dell really needs work, though.  I've mainly had to do most of the repairs on my own.  I'm glad they've all been software related so far.

      Dell’s was wonderful. for me

      Comments about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook PC:

      My name is zhangjing .I am an IT helpdesk engineer and have had several laptops, whether for game, business, or personal use. The Dell Inspiron E1705 has been the most reliable and consistently preforms above my business computer even though the business laptop is newer, has more memory, and higher end hardware.
      The case on this laptop is relatively work -- not as strong as the IBM ,Apple ,Lenovo Thinkpad or other PC, but stronger than my past Dell Tabletops and slightly tronger than the HP laptops I order for my work.
      On the other hand ,This laptop is ideal for home or family use. The Room desk we have for a computer is quite small and very busy, so the notebook was a great way for us to maximize the space. The amount of memory that comes standard with this computer is plenty to my son for home use and it is for me to minimal business use. However, I have not been impressed with Windows 8, the software program that came installed with the computer.
      This machine comes with 2-year warranty. It hasn’t needed service but I can tell you from my own experience that Dell’s service was wonderful.

      Decent laptop for its price

      By 

      from San Gabriel, CA

      Comments about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook PC:

      I've bought this 3 years ago while still going to college and I've still kept it ever since.  It's a decent laptop for its price if you can ignore for the slow processor compared to today's standards.  It's still a dual core at least.   Not like one of the other millions of cheap laptops sold out there with the "celery" processors (Celeron).   At least it's more powerful than that.  If you can find this cheap at all from any place, I would recommend getting this as it has enough juice to get most tasks done.  If you don't like the slow processors and memory, then I would advise to look elsewhere.  The battery is also pretty decent as I have yet to need to replace it every since I've bought this laptop 3 years ago.  It can last me 4-5 hours on a full charge, it's a great battery.  If you are in need of a decent budget laptop, I would highly recommend this Dell's E1705 laptop. I might buy another one as a spare for backup, it's that good!

      Awesome Laptop

      By 

      from Brimfield, IL

      Comments about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook PC:

      I am an engineer and have had several laptops, whether for school, business, or personal use.  The Dell Inspiron E1705 has been the most reliable and consistently preforms above my business computer even though the business laptop is newer, has more memory, and higher end hardware.  I am on the laptop daily to check email at the bare minimum.  On this computer I use a verizon wireless broadband card due to my travel schedule.  I also have a few games loaded on the computer and all have preformed very well.  The clarity and quality of the screen and graphics is superb.  I love the large screen.  The touch pad responds well and is not glitchy.  The sound quality is average and gets the job done.  I tend to just play music on low in the background so this was not a huge drag for me.  The battery life of the computer is top of the line.  Even after a couple years, it still has a couple of hours.  The keyboard has also held up great.  On one of my other laptops some of the frequently used keys wore out and would not respond.

      Who needs a desktop? This one does everything

      By 

      from Grayslake, IL

      Comments about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook PC:

      This laptop has completely replaced my PC. The computer is a great value. It is durrable, and dependable. I have had this computer for 2 years. I highly recomend the core2 duo processor and upgrading to the one with 4mb bus. I also had dell install the 256mb video card. With these affordable specks this laptop runs programs better than any computer I've seen. Performance is better though when it is running on A/C rather that the battery. The core 2 shuts down one of the cores when it is running on batery. The thing is heavy and bulky but worth it if you want the same performance of a desktop.

      Great notebook

      from Mertzon, TX

      Comments about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook PC:

      I love this notebook. I have had no problems with it so far. I have not had to use the service yet ,but that is a good thing. I was told this product has excellent service.I bought this notebook mainly because of the good name dell has. I was not use to vista but it is very simular to xp. It is fast enough for me. I don't play games on it so i really don't have input on that. I do recommend this item.

      It's aight I guess... i prefer to use sony. sony is way better and has cooler looking laptops... they are also lighter. and if u buy a dell u can only order it online and then when u have to get if fixed... u have to send it in. fckmeprofcmr,e oimer[f,oew m[oqemk m, wel,o[p,ed oew,m[ om[owem km woqim eimrem kmakwmr omfoimegn  oim 9j mi mkmeoim  ek0kew ewkweokd ekewodkekq= woekekd m oekwop kok pok eopkepwok jj49jfire oifm i jmijr4 j jio joi joij oirjgeromfodmfijr ji joeijmfoierfi4jn n iejn oiqejif jqw490jf q0w9ejf qj4309 jq0j 0j 09jqejwoimdkkewifjerijg09jg09j jgijer jj q90jg0irjgiorjm r9koreko  ewrko0rk rkew0ork w90 wkerokf[wrek fwrkf=0r0eowkf0 weri=f0okwer ifer0i ref owerk okfpokewro

      from Atlanta, GA

      Comments about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook PC:

      I love this product.  It was really easy to set up out of the box.  I've owned Dells before and have always received great customer service.  This computer is also extremely durable, anytime I travel it comes along with me.  Overall, I feel this computer is a good value and fits all basic computing requirements.
