Built like a brick - heavy and ugly.

General Comments
The Dell Inspiron 5100 was given to me by an elderly lady as she got a new later model laptop. I upgraded the RAM from 256MB to 1GB which is the max imum it can take. It didn't come with a WiFi module(been looking for one though) but it works fine with a USB one. The battery life is great for a 4yrs + equipment. Looking to upgrade the HDD from 30GB to 120GB(have found a compatible one by Western).The screen is ok(no problems). The fan cuts in and out wellThe only bad thing is that it has cracks on the lid hinges and body, the AC adapter heats up badly but it hasn't burnt out or blown yet apart from that its ok. I have got 4 Dell laptops, sold one that is a later model to the 5100 but I will never part with this.
