My new Laptop DELL Inspiron N5010

Hi, I am posting this blog after a long time. In this post i am going to write about my new laptop DELL Inspiron N5010.

It was my dream to buy a laptop for the past 3 years. I was searched the laptops in many companies and the second sales laptop. As my friends suggested not to buy second hand laptop. So i left the idea of buying second hand laptop. I don't have the sufficient money to buy a new laptop. So i waited to get a job. I thought will buy a new laptop after i join in a good job. I finished my B.E degree in 2009. I was struggled to get the job. Finally i got a job as a tutor. In that time i saw a second hand Samsung laptop. The cost of the laptop is 11,000. I was planned to sell my PC and buy the laptop. But the guy was not paid more than 7000 to my PC. So i left my idea for buying laptop.

In January 2011, i joined in Polaris. After 6 months i started searching for the laptop. I planned to buy in EMI. No shop is providing the EMI less than 14.3%.  At that time in one shop they provided HP laptop for 26,00 at 0% EMI. I bought tat laptop. First Problem i faced with the laptop is OS. They did not provided the genuine OS. I installed the genuine OS from my friend. But the OS installed was shown as 30 days trial pack. I just tried all my ways to make it as registered OS. But i could not make it. finally i found the way to extend the trial days for the OS. We can extend the trial days to another 30 days for four times.  I paid the money for one month. I faced some other problem also. That time i asked for the bill to the shop for going to the service center. They provided me a estimation bill. I asked for the bill. Actually what happened was the shop was not did the sales to me. It was one guy that made the sales. Actually he took a laptop from the shop without the shop owner's knowledge. I found that lately and returned the laptop to that guy and got my money back. This is the second time i failed to buy the laptop. I thought i will save money for 6 months and buy the laptop with single payment. So i started saving money. In March 2011 i have saved enough money to buy the laptop. At this time my dad needs some money. So this time also i gave the money to dad.I thought i was failed to buy the laptop for the third time.

But luckily, DELL provided the 0% 6 months EMI plan for citi bank credit card holders in their website. One of my friend in my office has payed in the credit card. I got the laptop by 7th May. The configuration of the laptop was Core i3, 320GB hard disk, 2GB RAM, 15.6 inch, 512MB graphics card, DVD writer with Win 7 home basic. They also provided the McAfee anti virus 30 days trial pack. That was the problem for me. In the third day McAfee updated from that frequently i got the blue screen problem(dump error). I called to the technical support and gave my laptop to the service center. They installed a new Copy of OS and provided me without any problem. I uninstalled the anti virus software and i did not faced any problem till now. Finally after 2 years i bought the laptop without selling my PC. I am very happy to have the laptop for me in my earnings.

  3. Good choice of brand of used laptop, Bensh. Dell's specs are easy to find. How long is the warranty? Do keep in mind that loss of data, theft, or any physical damage caused by you will probably not be covered. Do make sure that you have clarified the warranty’s coverage with your retailer, so that, if anything breaks, you know if it’ll be covered.

  4. Guys, it's okay to buy used laptops, just be extra careful. Research thoroughly about the buyer's profile and make sure that he/she is a reliable one. Also, don’t forget to let a computer technician check if there's any physical damage with the machine or if the system is corrupted.
