I like their desktops (although I would never buy one because I make my own with individual parts).

Their laptops are very unshapely. My gf has an E1505, it runs great, no complaints on function, but my laptop has a faster processor, same battery life, and more features, but it significantly smaller and lighter, and looks way better (I have an HP). My gf'* E1505 has the speakers on the front where you put your wrists while you're typing, so the music she plays is muffled while she types, and she says the silver wears off from your hands rubbing the surface while typing.

Although, the mousepad is much better placed and sized than my HP.

I'm not saying it functions better, it does because I bought extra features for it, and Dell provides all those same pictures, but Dell doesn't make them look as nice and they're overly heavy and have no consideration taken into saving space on the dimensions. My laptop screen curves in the space between the hinge and the monitor so that it doesn't need to be as high when closed, and the whole base is angled so that the major hardware towards the rear has enough space, but the front is thin where it doesn't need it.

I'm not bashing, Dells are a great buy and reliable imo, just saying they're not the prettiest, although they have a very plain professional look.

Congratulations, the laptop specs rock, and you'll love it.

I actually ordered my laptop through Costco, got the Dell E1505 first and didn't like the shape and the fact that me and my gf would confuse whose was whose all the time so they let me return it and get an HP.

Bought an E1505 the other day, came with Vista, it was my 12th Dell that I have bought new since 2003. Out of the box wireless did not work (OS couldn't even find the wireless card, although listed in BIOS as enabled), despite what I tried, tech support was no help of course. Mind you I am a Software Engineer, not as savvy on IT as bandit or wj, but I get by.

I sent the machine back. Dell wasn't interested in keeping me as a customer.

Last Dell I bought: E521 desktop. It has problems powering USB ports, had to add an externally powered USB hub so that it wouldn't drop the mouse!
