Does that sounds like Apple went to 'hell'!? I didn't mean that actually! I meant that I was an Apple user, owned an Apple Powerbook G4, for six glorious years! Its screen was playing up big time. Had to press and hold the screen to keep it from being blacked out! Anyway we bought a Dell Inspiron 1545 due to it being reasonable than the powerbooks! I really wanted another powerbook as its so good without any crashes and is difficult to hack! But money is against me and I had no choice but buy Dell. We already own a PC desktop and we wanted a laptop to keep us amused in the comfort of our lounge! We found the Inspiron to be different only because of its colours on the cover! We chose blue and ordered it via Tesco Direct. £369 for a Dell laptop, the price was reasonable when we got it in January of this year. We collected it from Tesco and discovered the colour was not what it looked online! It was very dark blue as opposed to light blue colour as seen online! Shortly after we collected the laptop, we discovered that there were no laptops made with light blue! So we didn't bother to complain! At first I couldn't believe how sensitive the 'mouse' was and had to get used to it! It reminded me of my smartphone which is also very sensitive to touch too! The 15 inch laptop was more bulky and heavier than my 17 inch powerbook but it is quite sturdy enough to withstand a small fall! I am fully aware that the Dell's battery life is shorter than that of my powerbook but for the price we can't complain! Batteries are not destined to last long anyway! So far, we have not had any software or hardware problems! If I had one or the other shortly after this review then I know its my fault! Wink! Good Laptop, can't fault it (surprise surprise!) out of the mouth of the hardcore Apple user!
Myself and my partner have two HTC Desire phones, which are the orginal models or in other but better words, are the predeccessors of desire HD, Z and S. I have to say that I can't imagine a better phone than the orginal HTC Desire, even nearly two years after its release! I hate to say I am a mobile addict only thanks to this phone! I had several phones in the past and I was never an addict with phones until the HTC desire came along! The phone is the first of its kind to be Internet friendly and it is easy to zoom and roam! Now the prices have come down after nearly two years in the hands of the public and the phone is still alittle ahead of its time or shall I say this phone is still trendy with packs of must have essentials which include the Android operating system, a killer system that spreads like wildfire (Not just the HTC wildfire!), which is fast to download, load apps and is reliable! You will never get a phone that is perfect as from time to time, phones freeze and so does this one but its rare which we should accept this as the norm! HTC Desire's short Battery life is the only let down, but with its operating system trying feed loads of hungry apps but we got over with feeling let down because we got use to charging it up overnight while we sleep as if we never charged this phone! BUY THIS PHONE! (Dated November 2011)
