I would advise against the Dell Inspiron 1525. I've had it for less than a year (august 2008) and it's gone crazy on me a couple of times already. The most recent and annoying problem is the cooling fan. After about two months of running fine (hard surfaces alone, have been through the ordeal with my last Toshiba Satellite) it would overheat and shut down. Still Struggling with it. Dell is not helpful at all, they're trying to convince me that it's not a real problem. For the past 2 months I've put something under it to elevate it and allow for better air flow but the other day it overheated and shut down again, even though it was elevated. And from what I understand the fan is very hard to clean because it is located under the motherboard.

So I advise caution.

I've bought the 1521 laptop a couple of days ago. What can I say?
It's perfect. The batteries works up to 4 hours (if you power off
the wireless interfaces). Also, I was lucky enough to get the model
without that TrueLife glossy screen. The bad thing is that the laptop
only comes with Windows Vista, and therefore has only Vista drivers.
It was somehow hard to find the Windows XP drivers for all presented
devices, but finally I have found them all.
Again - this laptop is just perfect.
