No games. He is in Tech school and uses it for classes. There might be some cad programs he might have to load. The price range is about $ 800.00. I have heard that Dell is junk, but I think most lap top are made from the same parts, it just what parts you get when you purchase the laptop. I have looked at Acer and Toshiba too. Bruce
Dell's laptops are consistently better than their desktops IMO. I'm not sure how well CAD will work on that laptop because of the integrated graphics. I know the new Inspirons are a little on the expensive side, but don't forget that Dell has thousands of coupons floating around the internet for as much as 30% off certain systems.
