Put XP SP2 or Ubuntu on it and you have a cracking bargain. I wouldn't attempt to use this machine with Vista even with 2gb ram (because of the slow ATI 1150 graphics card). If you move about a lot, spend the extra money on a bigger battery.

It doesn't matter as this has Home Basic so doesn't have the Aero interface.

And for £20 more than that you could have a Vostro 1510 with a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo and a 160GB HDD. :-D

I'm on this exact laptop right now, which I got in January (with XP when the option was available). I got it for £226 back then due to a work discount. It's a great laptop for the price.
Stuck in an extra 1GB of ram and it flies. May not be the greatest spec, but it happiily runs World of Warcraft for my daughter.

I would advise the bigger battery, I got the standard 4 cell and you get 45-55 mins out of it while just surfing the net.

Everyone who has had a go on it thinks it cost a lot more, and it doesn't have all those laptop-style 'go faster stripes' that you see on a lot of other lappys these days, Just plain smart looking graphite black.

only by wiping what install this comes with and loading your distro of choice.

backtrack maybe lol :whistling:
#11
Linux will happily co-exist in the hard drive with XP or Vista or both at the same time. You only need to partition the hard drive and install Linux and Grub as boot loader which will manage the OS you want to use.
I would suggest you get an Ubuntu live CD or any other Linux live CD ( live Cd will run the OS from the CD with no need to install in the hard drive) and try it out to check for hardware compatibility, especially wireless support.
#12
The reason for why I am asking for LINUX is cos it's cheaper than WINDOWS, lol.

Not many desktop PCs or laptops have the option of not choosing Windows and the few that do are not usually hot deals so you may as well buy a hot deal with Windows installed and remove it. Having a Windows license is good for the resale value anyway.

Does this have 2GB ram? Really after one with 2GB for a decent price. ~ £250?

The license doesn't cover you for transferring a copy of Windows from one PC to another if it was pre-installed.

I've gone for a Vostro 1510; Core 2 Duo Processor, 2Gb RAM, 250Gb SATA,.

Cobblers!

Perfectly useful for someone who need a basic laptop, maybe someone buying one for the first time and speed is not an essential factor. It is easy to overspec a PC/laptop and soon be spending £500 for all those essential features someone tell you that you need.

Horses for courses.
#23
There's a lot of negative comments about the spec only being useful for basic functions. Sorry, but codswallop!

I'm running a 3 year old Compaq presario (R4065EA) with Athlon64 3500+, 2GB RAM, DVD-RW, ATI Radeon Xpress 200M and 100GB HDD under XP. With the exception of 3D gaming (which I didn't expect to do that well anyway!), it does everything else without any issues. Adobe Premier, Photoshop, Video encoding etc. My spec isn't a million miles from the one in this thread. I'd dump Vista, install XP Home and gain a much better performance out of it.

Considering 3 years ago I paid £950 for it, looking at what you're getting now I'd say it's worth every penny.

Nonsense.
#25
I bought this lappy for my daughter a few months back at a similar price and it does her just fine. Very durable as well for the treatment it gets.

Added an extra gig and put Bariski Edition of XP (which is a lite version of XP but looks like Vista and runs very fast on low end machines) and it's a tidy little machine.
#26
Hot.

This remind me of the last Dell Sempron deal, except I think it was even better value though with 2GB RAM for around £216.
#27
Good deal but the 5.4" screen lets it down...

Yes, a 5.4" screen would be a great hindrance! :p

Everything is a compromise. If it had a 17" screen it would be a bulkier, heavier laptop and would cost more. I think on ~£230 laptop 15.4" is perfectly reasonable!

Whats the Sempron processor like? Is it like a Celeron?

Actually if you could get a laptop like Fujitsu's 5.6" atom-based tablet U2010 at this price then I reckon it'd be wildly popular.

average laptop. I wouldnt buy a laptop with any less than 2gb memory already installed. Best deal at the moment is the sony from comet @399

Spot the difference :whistling:

If you only have £230 you don't really have much choice. It's almost double the price.

It's an average laptop but for a very low price. Making this a hot deal.
#36
I got one of these back in February ish for closer to £300, but then it came with an AMD Turion TK-60 (2ghz), 2GB ram and a 160GB HDD.

It is a very nice laptop though, not too heavy at all. It might look a bit old-styled aesthetically but thats because theyve used an older Inspiron case for it (which, in its day was only available in a shiney Grey) and the matte black does suit this style better (IMHO).

Also, you can get a 9 cell battery for this that takes up the exact same room as the normal battery, so no bulges like you get with some laptops!

My spec runs all the usual apps fine, manages some games albeit in very basic settings (tried WoW and LOTRO). I really just use this as my Uni laptop though and do a bit of photoshopping on it, but it is a very nice, sturdy laptop and will suit anyone looking for a good basic laptop, also with an unobtrusive 9 cell battery option you can get a very nice runtime out of it!
#37
I had one of these...it's an ugly ugly U-G-L-Y bulky laptop.

Got rid in the end. Yes, it looks that bad.

Have noticed loads about tho. And a bargain at the price. But really have a good look at it before you buy!

I got the 1510 for my other half and it is much MUCH nicer looking, and well worth the extra.

Side issue - don't be tempted by the TruBrite screen - it's like a mirror! Unreadable if sat with a window behind you.

Totally agree. A 1ghz laptop would run office 2003 and browse the web without problems.

How come it gets away with stating 29working hours battery if yours only runs for 45 mins? :w00t:

Bought this laptop at xmas when they were similar money with XP. I do agree it's a bit ugly and bulky BUT for basic stuff it's great. I got the 6cell battery and i get nearly 4 hours of wifi browsing on a charge so I'd recommend that. Friend got a 1510 tho and at the time it was only £20 more - that's a cracking looking machine. I often get jealous but then remember why I got mine - it was CHEAP! Well pleased with it.
