We're looking to purchase another laptop for the family and wondered if there is something specific I should watch out for and insist on having on this machine. We've been looking at Dell Vestro 3550 series. We've got a Vostro 1500 that has been churning away pretty well for several years, but need more space and power.

Any W help would be appreciated as always!

I just bought that one. I should have it tomorrow. My current Toshiba has lasted me for three years with only a loose monitor cable and now possibly an overheating GPU as the only problems. This one seemed like a good deal considering I'll only watch videos, use Office, and surf the web on it.

I just bought that one for my son a couple weeks ago (it was on sale for $579 at Staples, plus a $100 Visa Card since he is a student). He is thrilled with it so far.

I have had pretty good luck with Dells. I went away from the once when I got my daughter an H/P when she started college and it died in a year. Her Dell is now 3 and working fine, with only a battery charging issue that happened.

Good Luck!

I got that model back in June, and it's been a good system. I went back to Dell after my first Inspiron lasted me over 4 years with no issues except a keyboard error that was caused by myself. My old Dell is still working, and is a nice backup should the need arise for it.
