"Decent budget notebook computer"4.0 starson by irfan_bugmenot
Pros: 4 USB 2.0 ports. 56K Fax / Modem. 8-in-1 Memory Card Reader. Not too heavy. Good battery life. Integrated 2.0 MP camera. Good feel with the keyboard.
Cons: Too much glare from the TrueLife display. Max resolution is 1280x800. No HDMI. No on/off switch for the touch pad. Power cord is rather short. Tinny speakers.
Summary: I bought a pre-configured Dell Inspiron 1420 at Best Buy. Vista performance is OK with 3 GB of RAM. However the graphics performance is subpar since it came with the Intel Graphic Media Accelerator X3100, not the NVIDIA® GeForceTM Go 8400M GS. I wish it came with Bluetooth. I haven't experienced any problems in two months of use.
