My daughter's Dell was a refurb and is very nice. I like HP because they're easy to upgrade and I like doing my own pc repair. I've been told it's hard to get to a Dell's hard drive but that may be just some models.

Inspiron 9400/E1705
Two screws, and out it slides.
I just replaced the drive, and it took all of 60 seconds.

Good to know. Someone had mentioned that they had to remove the keyboard to get to their hard drive. I may consider a Dell refurb when I need a new one now. Thanks.

We use Dell at work for both deastops and laptops. Use to be the best but the last five years they have gotten really worse especailly the maintenance and support. My wife switched to HP and really likes her.

I'm going to throw out a little unsolicited advice and recommend that you get an Apple MacBook. I used to use PCs, but my Apple is by far the best computer I have ever used. If you're afraid of giving up Windows, you can easily have both operating systems operating natively on the computer and choose which one you want at start-up. Windows even works faster and with more stability on my Apple than it does on any PC I've ever used.

Good luck!
