Good style, High level of connectivity, HDMI, eSATA

Screen could do with a bit of reinforcement, Dell's network tool is highly annoying, Unable to use the 4GB RAM due to 32-bit OS

The Dell Studio 1535 is a good mid-range laptop that fills the gap between premium and mainstream, and offers good quality for the price.

And irritatingly, most laptops have no real way of differentiating themselves from everything else on the market. "How hard is it to make a laptop?" you might ask, and I'd respond with "by way of looking at a lot of the models out there, not very."...

I received my Dell Studio 1535 two months ago. I was particularly interested by the high perfomance of the latter (Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2Ghz, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450, 2Gb RAM) for a price more than correct (about € 700). I was very happy to find

I bought one about a year ago for $1.4k only to have it mess up on the first day. I spent 6 months getting replacements on: hard drive x2, RAM, Charger x2, Wireless card x 1 etc. accompanied by many other problems including a stuck pixel straight out...

Decent design, but doesnt hold a candle to macbook pro etc

Absolutely everything else. DO NOT BUY . Terrible, terrible service

I have a studio 15 320 hard drive.

I am very impressed w/ the options. finger print reader, 2meg camera, back lit keyboard,wireless N.

I do not like the power supply, after seeing what apple does this seem very 1990's. My sound doesn't work after 3 calls to tell. Now they are sending me a new hard drive that I have to install and I have to find a method to move all of my files to the...

I've had it with Dell & Microsoft, Post 12/6/2008 windows updates crash system and force a restore, goes into endless loop, reloaded 5 times. Last time I spent 3 hours with Microsoft, they are stumped. Dell Said Sorry BestBuy, BestBuy said it's...

Pretty laptop

Dell's OEM support of Microsoft, BestBuys OEM or Dell & Microsoft suck. $900 shot down the drain, no longer doing business with Dell or BestBuy. Ordering a MAC from the Apple store now.
