Dell Inspiron 1300 Review (pics, specs)


The hinges are firm, there's no wobble of the screen even if you move the notebook around.  This is impressive, often with budget notebooks the hinges can be somewhat weak.  The protection provided by the lid is also good, if you push in on the lid...

Decent looking design that's actually more appealing than some higher-end Inspirons ; 5400RPM hard drive is impressive for a budget PC ; Cheap, $700 or less with some configurations ; Overall decent build and sturdy feeling for a budget PC

Uses old Intel 910GML chipset that limits bus speed to 400MHz, even if processor and memory can run at 533MHz and so hurts Pentium M 740 and memory performance ; Very basic selection of ports ; Screen is just okay, some colors don't seem true and light...

In regards to the issue with the misrepresenatation of the 1300 as having a 533MHz bus speed when it does not, that's obviously a knock against customer support and overall treatment of customers.  The resolution Dell has taken of now representing the...

Dell Inspiron 1300


Budget notebooks have never been better! Low-end notebooks were always priced at $800 or more, and never really packed the "oomph" of higher-spec expensive notebooks. This may have changed. The Dell Inspiron 1300 starts at $599, and the model we...

Good performance, spacious hard disk, DVDR/W drive, great screen, excellent WiFi signal, solid construction, quality keyboard

lack of microphone, speakers aren't great, almost no ExpressCard peripherals available

The Inspiron 1300 has set the benchmark for budget notebooks for a while yet, with it's solid performance and even better price. Although the speakers are rather dire and the lack of microphone is irritating, what do you really expect for an $800...

Works great! I highly recommend this product!

Consumer review by:

Love this Printer, Great Quality for Price!


I love this printer, I am glad I purchased it, instead of another HP. The touch screen display makes it so simple to use. The set up took minutes. It's wireless so I can have it wherever I like in the house. It prints beautiful Pictures and the paper...

Consumer review by:

Pretty good printer


Prints awesome, looks almost like a laser printer. The only thing that I could find fault with is the installation. It's a pain and time consuming. I still don't have it hooked up as WiFi.

Consumer review by:

Easy as can be


After hearing a few of my friends complain about setting up their wireless printers I was worried, but the Dell P713w couldn't have been easier to get up and running. Figuring out how to scan/copy is also a breeze with the touch screen.
