The Dell inspiron 1300 laptop is small business and home usage aim, for this is good, only the battery is poor, 4Cell original battery is short lasting life. But that isn't a problem, the replacement 6Cell 9Cell 12Cell dell inspiron 1300 battery have been issued, which has solved the power problem. You can see the best and high quality dell inspiron 1300 battery at http://www.dell-laptop-batteries-adapter.co.uk/dell-inspiron-1300.html

Written on: 12/06/2010 by Retiredbiker (3 reviews written)

WILL NEVER BUY A DELL AGAIN THANKS TO THEIR SERVICE SUPPORT. Purchased this Inspiron (it's actually an Inspiron 1370 but don't see any other reports on this machine so included under 1300) in December 09 and warranty expires Dec 2010. But warranty as much use as a glass eye. Dell support is dreadful. Followed info/leads on web for on line chat only to get message on line help not available "yet!!!!" for my machine. Eventually rang a number for service and got recorded message number… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2010 by inferno671 (3 reviews written)

Like some of the other reviews on here, I've had this laptop a few years now and to be honest, wish I'd sent it back when I got it. The battery life has been awful and without me even loading more stuff onto it, it's just got slower and slower. I also had the issue of the cracks around the hinges but I don't think this is specific to this model… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2010

Bought from Dell outlet for around £300 and have owned now for about 4 years. When it started to go wrong I bought an HP Business laptop and repaired the Dell.
Some anti virus software can make it a slow boot.
hard drive didn't last long at all and fitted much bigger one and more ram. Battery life was awful and soon died. Screen not that bright too.
Wouldn't buy Dell again. HP much better, but this is an entry level laptop and you get what you pay for. Was using as a back up machine, but using… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/01/2010 by jooliewoolie (1 review written)

I bought this laptop in Feb 2006 for just under £300 direct from dell, the battery has only lasted for an hour at the most since I bought it and now only lasts about 15mins before it goes completely flat. The speed is awful, the fan kicks in all the time and is very noisy, the speakers are poor quality and like other reviewers Ive found spare parts expensive. The power pack provided broke within the first year of owning it so I had to buy a replacement which I luckily sourced in Tesco! I… Read Full Review

Inferno671's Response to jooliewoolie's Review

Written on: 16/03/2010

If you're still struggling with the battery power of the laptop, I'd recommend you get a new one, which is what I did. Gave me 2.5 hours more battery time until that one went eventually too.

Written on: 15/11/2009 by Keith the Astrophysicist (11 reviews written)

I have owned an Inspiron 1300 (same thing as a Latitude 120 by the way) for several years and it has undergone a few changes that may interest users. I would not recommend it as a single purchase but only as a back up machine to a better laptop.

The screen quality is reasonable although not awfully bright. The construction quality is also reasonable but, as with many laptops, the plastic around the hinges has developed tension cracks. The big problem with the 1300 is that it has limited… Read Full Review

The Dell Inspiron 1300 is slow and the battery is awful, the plug sometimes doesnt connect to battery and makes the battery run down in 30mins. I spent £200 on it and am so disappointed even though it was cheap that im buying a new one 1 month after buying this laptop… Read Full Review

“I bought this Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop second-hand so...”

Written on: 08/04/2009

I bought this Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop second-hand so I am unsure of its age, I would put it at about 3 years old, maybe 4. The screen is very clear set at its max res (1280x800). The battery lasts about an hour from fully charged to shutting down, but the charge % readings and times displayed by Windows XP are always wrong. After a few minutes of running it, the fan starts and it is quite loud. Also, the hard drive makes this "bubbling" noise now and again which I find distracting.

I… Read Full Review

“Search the 'Net about Dell Batteries.”

Written on: 20/12/2008 by Ieuanfawr (68 reviews written)

Search the 'Net about Dell Batteries.
It seems they have a lifespan of about 300 recharges and then the system says "battery not present" even though it was fine the day before.
Of course the laptop is a year and week old, and the battery is only guaranteed for a year. Dell tell me to buy a new battery'for about £90… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/11/2008

My Dell Inspiron laptop sometimes overheats, my internal port(?) (the place where the charger fits) is broken and practically unfixable unless (I've been told by a pc technician) I pay so much money that I could buy a new laptop which I plan on eventually doing. Poor battery life, shuts down and freezes of its own accord, noisy fan - and what's also annoying is I virused scanned and defragmented practically everday so it's no even as if the freezing ect was caused by carelessness… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/09/2008

When I bought it in September 2004 it was well priced. Mostly ok. Much cheaper models now come with faster processor, more ram, and much bigger HDD. I had three failures in the first year: Hard drive! Optical drive twice! The 60GB HDD is, four years on, quite full and I have to resort to external drives. I also now need more RAM as the 512MB runs out quite often. Therefore I do not recommend the Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/08/2008 by dogrose (1 review written)

Not a reliable laptop. I found this laptop to be gravely unreliable, parts failures occurred on several fronts - the CD/DVD ROM drive went within months. The Hard Drive failed, and the screen failed since I've had it. Not impressed with Dell. Their customer service is not too hot either… Read Full Review

I like it since mine is Inspiron 1300 it serve me for two years already and still top of my applications.

Bad thing is that upgrade parts are still expensive and hard to find in stores.

Inspiron 1300 is good, it has intel b/g wireless card and hopefully parts are always available in stores "over the counter" not online… Read Full Review
