I bought my daughter two of those Dells. The one you describe sounds almost identical to the last one I bought her. They're just about bulletproof.

Other than the touch pad I think the laptop keyboards are just too flat. I like a banked 3 dimensional keyboard, I've got enormous and rather clumsy hands...3XL glove size. I'm not much good with cell phones either.


Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
