Got mine this week - needs to be upgraded to 2gb mem in my opinion. It only has one memory slot so you have to buy a 2gb chip (£14.99). It does have an hdmi output which they don't tell you! Nice looking laptop - but has a strange grooved rubber surface by the mouse which was difficult to get the stickers off without making a real mess!
Sold out now
Out of stock
Bought one last week from Dixons - internal wireless card is a joke - won't pick up a signal from my router unless you are within a few feet of the unit. I've tried it at one or two other houses and the same problem even though signal strength and quality are excellent from the routers on the other dell laptops in our household.

Downgraded to XP and the wireless reception is even worse, since there is no driver for XP and the liteon NIC in the laptop. I have tried a generic realtek driver 8187SE driver for the Wifi card since I cant find an advent one for the laptop.

I'm just about to buy a USB wireless dongle & disable the onboard one, as apart from this the laptop is very good value for money and I dont want to send it back due to one [albeit significant] weakness.
No probs on my wireless card. I would send it back if I was you!
Same here. I was very impressed by the laptop. Wireless works as well as any other device I have. Laptop was a bargain in my view.
i bought it from dixsons 235£ delivered ,as there was no free delivery offer at that time ,it is unopened sealed from courier as they send me even i cancell my order ,it is ready for going back ,i bought 6920g fro currys,i live in salford lancashire ,if any one interseted in this one he can pick it up form me .
all i can say i was that impressed with the 5431 for £235 all in i also bought the 5421 for £200 all in with code both machines are brilliant value for the money, wifi is superb,faster than main pc,sound is ok,webcam is great, only bad thing is battery which is complete *****, getting 2 hours max on lowest settings and keypad is so so but for £200 the 5421 does everything my brothers acer £450 does, so great value for money, on 5431 you get glass screen, on 5421 you get lcd screen, i think i prefer the lcd, but for the money you cant go wrong
