Dell Studio 1735 review


Reviewed: a stunning desktop replacement with sufficient power to meet your every need

Great desktop replacement ; Highly comfortable to use ; Quick and nimble performance

Basic 1440 x 900 pixel native resolution

The Dell Studio 1735 is a great machine that feels comfortable to use. The build quality is high and is matched by an equally stunning performance. We're not sure who this new range is ideally aimed at, though - after all, it offers the look of an XPS...

Stopped working


I've had my Dell Inspiron 1525 for about a year and a half now. About a month ago, the battery stopped charging, so I had to be near an outlet to use my laptop. This was irritating. More recently, this charger started shorting out. Oftentimes it would...

90 watt A/C Power Adapter issues again!


I purchased my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop since a family member has had one and hasn't had a single issue with it. I have had to send mine back in for a new motherboard after only having it for a few month due to it not charging with A/C Power Adapter...

cheap power supplies make for cranky customers


the power supply is an essential part of any computer. Faulty power supplies do not only annoy you but can shorten the life of your electronics. There is no reason that a power supply should fail after 1.5 years of purchase. That is pathetic. In...

Review of Laptop Charger


I bought a laptop not even a year ago and we've already been through 2 chargers (going on 3). I will never buy a Dell computer or anything from them, ever again. I am very disappointed with their products and services.

Highly Disappointed!


After reading the other reviews posted here I have to agree with the disappointment. I've had my Dell about 14 months and just in the last few weeks the battery life went from good to terrible! On average I get about an hour out of it now and for Dell...

Buy a docking station now


I've had my laptop for just over a year and today I received a message that my battery was nearing the end of its usable life. Of all the laptops I've ever owned or used for personal use/work use, this by far is the shortest battery life I've...
