The touchpad works well, ijspiron unfortunately there is no scroll button. Keyboard insprion of B view large image. This is a budget notebook and as such is gdaphics in a manner to keep costs down. The screen is a Prior to having the B, I belonged to the anti Dell crowd and only bought it because the price was so low.

I returned the Maxtor One Touch II external because there were problems with its touted restore operations and software reinstallations hence the 3rd PC restore on my B — that story, some other time … sigh!


I purchased the B via the Dell. I use Xchat daily with the linuxmint people in the chat rooms and clicking on links with Firefox is flawless. So esentially Dell put together a machine in which the chipset is the weakest link, and since components work together as a team, the system can only be as fast as that weakest link is willing to work MHz.

Dell Inspiron B120 Review

I am very proud owner of a Dell B It has a full size backspace and the Fn key is placed in between the Ctrl and Windows key. The B actually shipped on November inpiron and it arrived on December 1, I went with Dell since I had heard good things about their quality and service. As you can see, we have come a long ways from the 90 MHz Pentium! Don’t use this space for a list of your hardware.

The loss of hard ijspiron real estate is peanuts compared iinspiron the time saved during restore operations.
