“Best Laptop Dell has ever made”

Written on: 29/04/2012 by dylanbob (1 review written)

I have tried all the new Dell laptops they have been putting out over the past 3 years or so, with hopes they might have something as good or better than my Dell Insipiron 6400 -- and nothing comes close! This machine is simply made the way a computer should always be made. I imagine the only thing that might be as good is a Macbook, though have never been able to get on the Apple bandwagon. Why is this so good? First, I got mine with the best screen offered, a high res 1080p, 15.4 screen --… Read Full Review

I agree with your review, its a great looking laptop. I replaced the cpu with an intel T(14400/2).twincore running at 2.0 GHz, and cleaned the fan. It has the original x1400 Graphics. I updated the Catalyst Control centre. The graphics are1280x800 on its own screen, but 1440x900 when sent to my external monitor. I keep looking for the
1680 x 1050 WSXGA+ screen, the last step I need to make this perfect.
The sound is great, twin speakers, only problem seems to be the power adapter has to be Dells own make, it send a signal to the pc to verify its genuine and only charges then. I use mine without a charger.

“Best Laptop Ever!”

Written on: 03/09/2011 by SpicaLili (1 review written)

My parents decided to give me a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop as gift when I graduated from elementary school. It's been 3 years already and for a 3rd year high school student like me, it's the best laptop ever! PROS: -Wide screen, great for viewing movies and such -Large memory (I have 3 online games installed and several PC games) -It's great for travel too, battery lasts as long as 5-6 hour for me, enough for an-out-of town trip -It's not heavy. CONS: -Kinda slow, but when I updated from… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2011

Had this Inspiron 6400 for 5 years never any problems with it.

This machine was on everyday for at least 12-16 hrs, used it at home & at work.

My three kids used it for surfing the net and also playing games.

I have been preaching about this laptop for years even to all the nay sayers, evn though they had to buy other desktops or laptops in the last 5 years.

I would like to get another one but I doubt that I will ever get one that will last as long as this one is lasting.

I recommend Dell… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2010

The WORST laptop ever, it is SOOOOOOO slow and constantly freezing, I have disabled background services and startup programs and it is still slow and freezes.

Secondly, the computer says there is NO BATTERY PRESENT and will only run off the short power cable. But when you remove the battery and do a test on it with the battery tester, it says FULLY CHARGED.


Basically, don't buy this laptop as I really regret buying this and am now going to have to pay more money for another laptop… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/12/2008

Ever since I've gotten this computer 2 years ago I haven't done anything but try and fix it... and its never easy! There aren't any dell shops, so everything is done on the phone which is frustrating for me, takes forever. If there is anything wrong you have to fix yourself while on the phone with someone who can be difficult to understand! The battery does not last long, my keyboard has been replaced twice, and the screen is loose and doesn't stay put... I have not been pleased with this… Read Full Review

“I have been using this laptop for little over a year. ”

Written on: 06/10/2008

I have been using this laptop for little over a year.
Issues I had with this system
- Some keys stopped working after 1 year, was replaced
- Silver paint around the touchpad area faded, was replaced
- Front media keys got a little hard to press. Had to use more pressure to get it to work, also paint on the media keys chipped out, was replaced.

All the above was replaced for free as it is under warranty.

The laptop is very quiet and never heats up. It provides good performance for its price… Read Full Review

The Sound Quality really packs a punch and the picture quality isn t bad either with a 16:10 widescreen and 1,680 x 1,050 screen resolutions. However if you buy with Windows Vista I would recommend at least 1GB of ram. Overall it s a great product and for £629 it s a good deal… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/03/2008

Very fast. Good looking. Media buttons on the side. 6 hour battery when playing games - burning cd's and doing the usual stuff.

For the money its an absolutely brilliant deal. The screen is a decent size, it's got media buttons on the side which make life easy (believe it or not). The only update I'm going to do to it is put a better graphics card in it (I'm a gamer... otherwise well recommended!) & perhaps an internal bluetooth card. also.. comes with Wifi built in!… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/03/2008 by johnsmith909 (1 review written)

Put simply, I'll not be buying Dell again. This is my second Dell machine and the second that has failed within a few months. First there's the DVD/CD drive that makes some discs sound like a tractor. Then there's the failure of the OS (something about BOOTMGR not being found - why not?). I had to reinstall the Vista OS. Result? The machine no longer talks to my wireless hub and the whole thing freezes when I plug in the ethernet cable. Dell help people weren't much, er, help. English isn't… Read Full Review
