The brightness level is adjustable from 1 to 8, 1 being the lowest, still readable under normal light conditions but a bit dim, and 8 being the brightest setting. He told me that “it would never, ever happen. Since I rarely stare at a black screen, this is not an issue for me. I read reports that it could last a good 5 hours with a 9 cell battery and that you could also configure it with an extra media bay battery. None of these situations are conductive to a great gaming session. My search for the best possible laptop for my needs started about a year ago when I realized I could use a portable to bring to class. I did however get rid of McAfee asking me every 2min if I want to really use this program.

There are 4 mouse type buttons, 2 on top and 2 at the bottom of the touchpad.
This can be observed when the screen is completely black and in the dark. I also considered buying a laptop that would offer 3 to 3.

At least I tried! The hard drive is very responsive and copy tests have shown quite fast. I had no dead pixels and no other problems with this screen. I decided to buy my D directly from Dell Canada.

Not only would I get bored, but my wife would probably not like it either. The notebook is extremely silent.
The extra installed software included google desktop and toolbar, McAfee antivirus and protection suite trialand several useful Dell utilities. I would either be in class or at work with the laptop.
