However, the plastic area around the screen is not held on very well. Visit our network of sites: We use the program Super Pi to calculate the number Pi to 2-million digits of accuracy, this is a good way of simply jnspiron the processor to do work to calculate a number and deriving performance from the time it takes to achieve the end goal.
The look of the Inspiron is a mix of silver and black. There is no sag or problems with the keyboard.
I installed Microsoft Flight Simulator to see how it ran on this notebook the simulator does not require a dedicated graphics card thankfully and, while it ran, it was choppy and a bad experience. The keys have a nice click when pressed, but are not loud.
The speakers are located on the right and left front sides, which is good placement since they fire forward to where you are sitting. You need external speakers or headphones via the lineout to get any type of decent audio.
The Dell ends up being a fine notebook for general usage and as an extension of a desktop computer. They dont make them to this build quality any more. The actually shipped on November 30 and it arrived on December 1, Dell Inspiron collapsed open view larger image.
When on AC power the screen is bright enouggh, but when you switch to battery it becomes too dim — you can adjust your display and power settings to force the screen to be brighter wirelfss on battery but at the cost of shorter battery life.

Dell Inspiron 1300 Review (pics, specs)
After 11 years, the Dell is still working. Having all the ports on the left side means things will get busy over there if you have 3 USB devices plugged in — spreading them out a bit would have been nice. This is delll, often with budget notebooks the hinges can be somewhat weak. When using the for simple web browsing and typing this review and with screen brightness set to half the battery ran out after 2hours and 20 minutes. Watching an entire DVD at full brightness on this laptop would only work if the movie is 1-hour 30 minutes or less.
I purchased the via the Dell. I placed the order on November 18, and was given an estimated ship date of December 13, Buy Direct From Manufacturer. The lid is an entirely silver-grey color while the rest of the body is black with an accent of silver drll around the keyboard. Back side view of view larger image. Front side view view larger image.
Only having an ExpressCard slot is somewhat of a downer.
