Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 1318

83% Dell Inspiron 1318
Source: PC Pro English
Four hundred pounds (exc VAT) isn't exactly a huge amount of money to spend on a laptop but, up until fairly recently, most fully-fledged laptops at this price shared one niggling trait - their bulk. Want a desirable 13.3in laptop for less than £500? Look no further than Dell's talented 13.3-incher.
