    I own a dell Vostro 1000. 80gb harddrive, 1gb of ram, widescreen lcd monitor (with touch capability). Windows Vista enhanced. Wireless with 2 firewire and 2 usbs, and a built in modem and lan connection. cd-rw/dvd combo drives.
    I owned a previous dell-the Latitude. I was so impressed with the latitude, I did not want anything else but a dell. So I shopped around for a bit, then came to a shop, that was having problems with the dell vostro. I bought it from them.

    This is quite the machine. As if you can get the extra recommended ram -2gb . And get the panda internet security with firewall. It makes your computing experience all the better.

    Windows Vista is a good match for this laptop.

    The only drawback, any updates like hardware-you have to send the laptop to dell for the upgrade-harddrive or dvd-rw dell needs to do the updates for you.

    If you play any dvds on your laptop-you will need the 2gb of ram. recording to the cd-rw, drive is a breeze. Use realplayer 11. download manager shows where it went. Start realplayer, change the title of the movie to what you want the movie to be titled. Burn to cd. Just before finalizing, windows vista will ask if you want this to be played with realplayer only or across the multimedia platform? tell vista yes-multimedia platform, so not only realplayer, but quicktime and media player 11 or 12 can play it too just like divx...will play it on your personal dvd player that takes cd-r.
    most recently my battery went out, I checked with dell, it costs $299.99, I checked several battery stores to find the average price is $150.00. But, there is a retailer on ebay who charges $47.99 with free shipping. I will use him instead.
