"Heavy, big, rip off battery issues"3.5 starson by philipwinfield
Pros: Big screen, peformance
Cons: Big screen and weight
Summary: I was asked before having a laptop what I'd like. I went for this with 1Gb RAM and the machine is fine. Hot on left side, great screen etc. But as a laptop, I'd missed the point that reading emails and using word does not require a big screen! I curse it when lugging it around airports etc but that is my fault, lesson learned.
I have an ancient Dell laptop I never used too. My kids play on it, the battery only lasts an hour or so, they gradually fall away in performance. Or that is what I thought until the D800! I left it on one night and in the morning the battery fault light was on. Battery fault I hear you say - surely not, they're a chemical thing, they just gradually become knackered? No, the clever electronics had decided I needed a new one and at 100 GBP I was not a happy customer. Beware.
