    Today this laptop rate was increased

    I ordered this item from flipkart and it took exactly 4 days to reach me. The item description mentions "Free DOS", but what i got was a Linux Laptop. I don't know whether this is one off incident,but it will make me think twice before i go for online shopping again.

    Dell rocks

    It comes preloaded with ubuntu. So you better install a windows in to it. You need to have drivers to get in. Download it then change to win platform. Camera is really bad when compared with my HCL laptop. Battery life is really good. It can support 64bit and you upgrade your ram by contacting Dell.

    The box came opened and it got replaced in a couple of days.

    my words

    About the laptop - Its been 3 weeks since I am using the the laptop. It has a rubber grip kind of finish, is extremely lightweight and looks awesome. The large 15.6" screen with the HD display does wonders when you watch HD movies, or simply run day to day activities.
    The speakers located right in the front is so tiny that you can't even notice them. However, sound quality is not compromised at all. It is far far better than my Sony VAIO speakers, which costs so much more.

    The Good and the Bad

    Laptop is pretty good but faced the following issues

    1) Track pad stopped working in two months. (Got it replaced by dell in warranty)
    2) Hard disk was corrupted and repaired (Dell got it replaced within warranty).
    3) The charging port was repaired, this was changed by Dell by giving a new set of chargers (Within Warranty)

    ~ Laptop seemed to have been used for some time (which came as a rude shock)

    Installed Windows 7 edition, things were seamless

    1) But every now and then the system hang...

    Dell Touchpad issue

    Hello friends,

    This is normal issue with all dell laptop, I also own Dell Studio 1558, which also had same issue earlier. But still i love dell notebooks because of the build quality.
