The power charger plus into the left handside of the laptop, poor design (annoying when plug is on right) - should be on the back.

Good points:
I got this laptop to replace my HP laptop as it had poor battery life, over-heated and i was constantly replacing the charger. So i was thrilled when i get this laptop it was a great price for a Dell with windows 7 (which is excellent) and has none of the problems of my HP. The battery life is excellent, fans are silent 90% of the time and it never over heats. Looks really nice too, everyone comments its nice pattern.
Bad points:
Only had one problem with this laptop, within 2 weeks of having it one of my keyboard keys came off. I called Dell's tech services, they were great sent someone out (to my house) within a couple of days to replace the keyboard. They called an hour before arriving and it was all done in 10minutes. And of course all free of charge.

Good points:
Didn't get time to find good points as I returned it.
Bad points:
Touchpad eratic. Burning recovery discs confusing and time consuming. Downloading updates from Dell confusing and very time consuming. I started burning recovery discs and downloading updates [20] at 1500hrs. I finished at 2330. An update from Microsoft seemed to disable the wifi. Cured by 'system restore'. - on the first day of use! A few days later, an update from a freebie dvd program that came with the laptop sent 'windows' into a spasm and it repaired itself but restored to a different time. You shouldn't have to be computer whizz kid to buy a computer, but you seem to have to be. I hope my desk top keeps working for another 30 years 'cos I'm not looking forward to buying another computer.
Didn't like the headphone socket at the front - sticks into your belly when curled up in an armchair.
Got message about 'modem' problems. Told to contact Dell website. I did so. Was given choices I did not understand. I don't think I've got a modem, apart from that thing from Virgin in my front room. I've no idea if the 'modem diagnostic tool' was referring to that or not.

Good points:
I only use it mainly for the internet but it does everything i need it to do. The screen is a good size and the speed is too. i have only just looked t the web cam briefly and it has extra options so that you can put different frames around the image and other options too.It was very easy to set up and didn't need charging up before hand. Pleased with my purchase.
Bad points:
i can't think of any bad points
