The Dell Inspiron has been a great computer!
Well, I have had my Dell Inspiron 546 for a year now, and overall I am very pleased with the system. This is just my third computer in 10 years, so when I buy a system, I plan on using it awhile. I had already gotten a Dell for my daughters, and after their continual loading and unloading program, downloads, surfing the internet and watching movies, the computer just kept going! I needed a new desktop for my business, so I went with a Dell too. I did do alot of shopping around first, but they had a really good deal on the system I wanted so I went ahead and decided to take the plunge. I opted for the colored bezel (green!), since my computer is in the living room. Right out of the box, it started right up, and everything was clearly marked and very easy to set up. One of my reasons for getting this system was for watching movies too, which it did great for about two months. For some reason the movieplayer software just stopped working right, and I could never get it upgraded or fixed by Dell. I downloaded different software altogether and just gave up on the pre-loaded movieplayer. The hardware for playback is wonderful, so all in all no complaints about how the movies play. Aside from the software glitch, this computer has been great--runs fast, easy set-up and maintenance, and a year later everything is still going great with it!
