If you use memory cards frequently, this may be a problem for you. The included Asus carry bag and optical mouse are nice touches for first time users. I have no experience with tech support at this time obviously due to the short ownership time. There are certainly cheaper options for this specification, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. A similar problem occurs with the optical drive. Log in or Sign up. This is only really noticeable when viewing a very dark or black image however so in everyday use does not pose much of an issue.

The Dell had a great battery life for its size and the specification was sufficient for her needs basic office use, internet, messaging, music. The sound, as on almost all laptops, is poor from the speakers and lacks any bass. Viewing angles are standard for a glossy screen, with colours quickly fading in the vertical.
The card reader works fine, however has a poor design. Separate buttons and a more defined touchpad would be an improvement.

Coming from my single core processor, being able to run a virus scan and still have a usable system witeless a great improvement.
A flaw I would like to mention is the opening mechanism for the screen, which involves a tiny, recessed switch that requires a aa3f of fiddling to actually open the lid.

Knowing her penchant for treating technology badly however, the gloss black lid was unlikely to stay perky for long.
Keyboards are a very subjective piece of equipment so it is difficult to comment objectively, but for my money I disliked typing on it. Unfortunately it is very difficult to know which button you are going to press or indeed, if you press any button at all.
