Heya guys,

Know can count on you for your thoughts on this. Basically I need a simple laptop good enough to use for Excel, Word, streaming videos and just general website viewing. Gaming would be nice, but really don't think this machine could handle much of that at all.

Basically just want some quick thoughts on any problems you may see with this laptop, or even some praise if you've had or heard good things:

Inspiron 1525
Next-generation Inspiron Desktop featuring a bright 15" widescreen display which provides a balance of price, performance and mobility.

* Intel® Celeron Dual Core Processor T1400 (1.73Ghz, 533 MHz FSB, 512 KB [Included in Price]
* Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium SP1 - English [Included in Price]
* 1 Year Base Warranty [Included in Price]
* 15.4" Widescreen WXGA (1280x800) TFT Display [Included in Price]
* 2048MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x1024] [Included in Price]
* 160GB (5400RPM) SATA Hard Drive [Included in Price]
* 8x DVD+/-RW Optical drive, including SW [Included in Price]
* 6-cell battery [Included in Price]

Cheers for the thoughts, appreciate it. Nick

For just doing word documents, and surfing the web, that laptop should be fine. Don't expect it to play games though as you mentioned.

Not bad at all. Are you planning to game with your laptop?
