“I wish it had internal wireless card... there is a bay...”

Written on: 23/07/2007 by ajvenom (18 reviews written)

Good Points
Has a second bay for a 2nd lithium battery pack if you take the CD/DVD drive out which extends the approx. 2 hour life. Battery and CD/DVD drives slip out with no tools. Upgrade CD/DVD yourself. Standard 20 gig hard drive is upgradeable. 512mb memory with 1GB max. Upgradeable to vista standard. Choice of stick pointer or touchpad.

Bad Points
Speakers area little weak... but are about average as laptops go. USB 1.0 but fast enough for my needs so far.

General Comments
I wish it had internal wireless card... there is a bay I popped in a wireless card and it worked just fine. I upgraded from a CD-ROM to DVD player/CD-RW. It has a pentium III 1 GHz chip with 512MB memory runs everything I need. I would recommend a 20 GB hard drive minimum nowadays. I use the stick pointer when I draw but 99 percent of the time I use the touchpad for for everything else. You can hook up a standard mouse if you want. It has a serial and parallel ports if needed. With the 14 inch screen it makes a wonderful first time Laptop.

With the DVD/CD-RW, wireless card and Windows XP upgrade, I have spent about 300.00 US dollars total or about 150.00 BP for my Dell Latitude D600. I had a wireless router already in my home for two desktop computers but the laptop is what really makes a wireless system shine. It's amazing the places you go that offer free wireless internet service (coffee shops, libraries, schools etc..). Laptops are clearly a valuable tool to own.
