Consumer review by: Kenny (reevoo.com)

Dell Inspiron N7010

 

Good screen, not too reflective. Keyboard feels really good with just enough tactile feedback to allow fast typing. Clever dual use of the function key row to allow quick control of more common uses i.e. media control, play/pause etc. Great sized...

Heavy - 3 Kg - you have to expect that with a 17" screen. The speakers are underneath the front corners and they sound a little woolly but it might just be my sixty year old ears. I have the black cased version and it picks up every little fingerprint....

I love the large screen and the keyboard is really easy to type on. Colour is great too

It's really slow on start up. I went for the bigger screen but this came with the slightly slower processor. With hindsight I probably should have gone for the faster processor and smaller screen

Good design, nice keyboard (for fast typists!), love the colour (red!).

The only negative is that the finish on the keyboard surround on the right hand side is a bit lose and you can hear it click in and out of the base.
