Fast and reliable. I've had mine since they debuted in 2004. With a 3.4Ghz dual-core Pentium 'D" w/ bus speed of 800Mhz, laptops are only now catching this desktop replacement.I wish Dell still made something like this - the current models seem much cheaper and the glossy screens are hard to read. Battery life < 2 hrs. Very, very warm. (read more)

I bought the DELL Inspiron 9100 despite the bad points. When I was looking for a laptop I wanted one which was powerful enough to run Cubase SX3 and VST plugins and perform live music with it on stage.

The sound quality is still much better than what I've come... (read more)

Unfortunately, my Dell Inspiron 9100 laptop has broken down with major problems 5 times. Dell will not replace my lemon or extend the warranty. I waited 1 month to get my laptop back, and they mailed it to the wrong address.
Also, I was on the phone to them for over 1 hour. I asked for a replacement, but I lost the call. (read more)

When it's working it is a dream, everything loads quickly, really is wonderful to use (as long as you're using a mouse).
When it breaks it breaks in style:
The first time the memory went pop and they replaced it - I still got blue screens every now and again but they told there was nothing wrong with that!! The second time it died completely, blue screens and wouldn't boot, and then complete failure, and they replaced the motherboard after I argued with them that was the faulty component... (read more)

The Dell Inspiron 9100 is super fast. I'm on it right now, actually. Here's what I have under the hood:
Pent 4 3.0 Ghz with hyperthreading
40 GB hard drive
1.0 GB ddr RAM (WOO!)
128 MB ATI radeon 9700 graphics
cd burner/dvd rom drive
wireless network card b/g
4 usb 2.0 ports
built in "subwoofer"
s-video and dvi
I think that's all that's important.
The sound from this thing is amazing. It doesn't have that wimpy "laptop" sound. It has an awesome "subwoofer" that... (read more)
