I've had two Dell laptops, a Latitude C600 and my current Latitude D620. The C600 was a great laptop. I used it for five years and never had a single hardware issue, except for needing a new battery or two over those five years. On the other hand, while all my coworkers were getting new laptops, I was stuck with that darned C600 well past its typical life span simply because it refused to die. I nicknamed it "Paris", because it got banged so many times.
My current D620 has been equally good, although I've already worn out my fist battery in about 15 months.
My name is Kevin D Romney and I would like to start a discussion about Dell laptops. Please post you best and worst experiences here.
