I purchased the Dell 4 years ago and had the extra memory included to 3 Gb. It's a great laptop for typing and the screen is excellent. The 3 gig memory allows many windows to be open at once, many more than on my PC which has a similar memory size. The screen is clear and is very good for watching movies etc. As with most laptops one would like the battery to last longer, from full the laptop lasts only about one and a half hours before the battery needs recharging.
The construction is heavy and solid though the DVD player front is very flimsy and has come off several times the drive still works however even when the front is off. I also note that the keyboard is not completely flat, it has a bump around the middle area due to the additional memory that was added when I purchased it. This doesn't really make any difference to the speed of typing or functionality of the key board.
Overall I am very happy with this laptop, and expect it will last me for a few years yet.
