Dell iN5030


This is not a netbook folks, stop comparing it to one. This is a real laptop with much more capability than a netbook for a good price, good specifications and capabilities. Should be great for student school work.

Price, size, specifications

Lower cost construction, maybe battery duration depends on demand

Solid Laptop


I got this laptop when it was on sale for $399.99 and honestly for the price you can't go wrong. Great for browsing the web and running multiple applications

A lil bulky and I worry about it's durabilty because it's seems to be made out of plastic like material

Good For $399.99


Dell's always made good computer before, I sure hope this laptop lasts the 2-4 years I'm expecting.

4GB DDR3, 512MB Dedicated Video, Cool texture on black color. Streams HD like a dream ; It's a dell

Small Hard Drive and it only shows 280ish when it should be 320ish. With all the computers on our network now, we don't need any more than that anyway

Great Affordable Laptop


Dells have been good to me so far, this laptop is pretty nice so far. I knew what I was getting with this laptop, and I'm very please with it.

Stream (with wireless) HD Graphics through Netflix with ease ; 4 gigs of ram makes Windows 7 Home Edition run fairly well ; Looks nice ; Appears to have poor ventilation, but keeps cool under some good old stress-testing

Pretty Small battery capacity ; could've used the extended keyboard layout ; Small Hard Drive

good budget laptop


Great specs for the price, bought on sale for $400.00. better then buying a netbook with a slow processor and small screen for the same price

feels kinda cheap, kinda bulky has a plastic hollow feeling to it. gave it 4 stars because it was a deal ($400.00 on sale). not to sure i would of bought it at the price now

Never judge from appearance and price


cheaper than others

It is very fragile and has many issues. When I press the mouse button, it immediately got jammed. Not only that, but if I lightly tap the side of the mouse pad, the computer suddenly turned off

Wife Loves It


Great computer so far and wife loves it.

This computer was a great buy for the uses that my wife will put it to. Nice look and she loves it for school work and general web usage

Plastic on the case feels a little cheap around the keyboard

Good Deal!!


This is a good value laptop from Dell and Newegg. I was using mom's Dell Studio with Turion X2 and 2gig memory for a while. Man, what a difference with this one. That extra 2 gig memory makes a HUGE difference. I searched everywhere and could not find...

Dual core, 4 gig memory, Dell

No hdmi. 5400 rpm drive (not sure if that makes a big difference though)
