Dell Inspiron 1525 - Worst Buy!
I bought a Dell Inspiron 1525 for the simple fact that it was cheaper and it was being offered through my phone company so I could pay it off. I would have went through Dell directly but the problem was I didn't have a credit card.
So upon receiving the laptop I plugged it in and set it up to notice they were selling them with 1 GB Ram with vista running. From what I learned Vista needs 2 GB to run smoothly.
A month later my keyboard was acting funny to a point a button flew off and space bar was not spacing. I contacted Dell they sent me a new keyboard and told me I should buy more memory off of them and no one else.
6 months later the same thing with the keyboard. So I downgraded to XP and things seemed to be running well until the computer overheating crashing BSOD, Bios the works!
I sent it in where it was under warranty to their depot. Dell put vista back on the computer and Replaced the following: Mother Board, Fan, Cooling agent, Keyboard. What had happened was the fan and such gave out over heating my computer and causing everything in it to fry. Thankfully it was under warranty...
If that wasn't bad enough, the warranty was now up and I was finding that every time I put the laptop on sleep or it went to sleep on its own it crashed. I looked it up and after spending and hour on google I learned that the Dell Inspiron 1525 was famous for doing that and needed a BIOS update that would fix it.
I was lucky and it worked, but to this day a cooling pad is a must and my Dell continues to get hot fast.
I don't recommend this to ANYONE at least not the Inspiron 1525!
