Pros: Good value for the money. It is fast and the Dell 1397 wifi works well. The screen is bright and does not suffer from annoying reflections.
Cons: The fan is very quiet. Barely noticeable. But, it is on all the time. Will it get louder as time goes on and the bearings wear? The internal speakers at their loudest setting do not produce an adequate sound volume. Not a huge problem since most media listening is done through headphones.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
