Dell provides solid computers that are reliable, functional, durable, and most importantly long lasting. I have had mine for five years now and could nont say a bad thing about it. It has traveled with me worldwide and has never let be down when I needed it. The battery lasts about the average time of any laptop battery that I have used. It is rather heavy but for all that it entails it is worth its weight. I have never had to replace my battery which shows the quality of this product. The sound is not too great but that is what external spearkers are for. About half of my hard drive is taken up and my computer still runs as fast as lightening, loading and running multiple programs at once. IT also is amazing at running computer games. THe graphics are smooth and clear and the load and running time is very short. Definately something I would suggest to my friends,, especially those who are gamers or students that need dependable products. The computer is worth the money it costs.
