The overheating problem
• • •

I've been using this computer for 4 years now, and it's still in fine working condition. My model has an upgraded graphics card and only 4GB of RAM compared to the model reviewed by PC World, but I still have never had any problems running decent games. Don't think Crysis would work though, so I haven't tried it. Also a nice amount of customization options. I prefer working with the function keys as the default, and holding the Fn key to change brightness or switch media tracks. I've even bought a new keyboard that was easily installed once the old one had problems after 3 years of solid use.

On the other hand, especially in summer, it has MAJOR problems with overheating. The hard drive heats up, and due to poor product design the graphics card is right next to it. This means that while playing any graphics-intensive game, and sometimes even when doing simple day-to-day stuff, it will simply overheat and shut down instantly.

But this problem can be avoided by pulling the case off, cleaning the dust out and making sure the heat sinks are still properly in place every 4/5 months, and having a cooling pad and/or using it in a cool environment. The cooling pad makes it SLIGHTLY less comfortable to use on my lap, but worth it.

Overall a great laptop, but not being able to use it in summer is a bit of a downer. Too many negative reviews based solely on the overheating, small details like apparent fan buzzing? and getting a virus, which I'm pretty sure isn't the computer's fault.

I've had one of these laptops for three years and I push it to the limit in terms of what I do: high resource requiring vidya games. I haven't had a problem with a single game I've tried to play which is saying something for the value of it. The Keyboard is perfect for me, and the tracpad is one of the better that I've ever used. I had to replace the motherboard once which is the only thing keeping me from giving this that last half a star, but I knew that could be an issue coming in, and it lasted long enough for what I did with it.

Worst experience with overheating and unexpected sutdown
• • •

This is just horrible...
Dell suppport is good. I bought N5010 i5 480M/4GB RAM/500GB HDD/1GB ATI Radeon 2 years back and I also took 2 years Dell onsite hardware support. In that 2 years my motherboard, heatsync/FAN and thermal paste has been replaced for overheating issue. Now I am out of warranty and experincing same overheating issue and unexpected shutdown. Its a generic issue of this model and till date its not resolved by DELL.
So, firends I cant recomend this model to just waste your money.

Have to disassemble half the laptop to get at the hard drive to replace drive that started the "click of death". What happened to the idea of taking off a cover plate on the bottom or sliding it out the side of the case.

I bought it about 1 yr ago, I thought that I treat it badly till I read here the problems users have,

yes that's right,it's noisy, fan is always on with no occasion, the battery is weak. my one lasts for less than 1 hr with no vedio.and it's heavy(2.6 kg is heavey compared with other PC's)

I read alot about this PC in many forums, It causes alot of problems,

It doesn't work with win XP unless you change SATA sittings, and if you do, there are no drivers for win XP in dell site.people who need these drivers try to see (www.mushahed.net)

with all of that believe me friends, I love it very much.

People, your complaints about the overheating/fan issues can be solved if you just clean the vents on your laptop and stop using your computer in a dusty smoke filled room. Clean the vents and your problems will go away. CLEAN THE VENTS !!!

HORRIBLE.
I do not recommend this laptop whatsoever. The volume buttons decide when they want and don't want to work, it overheats like CRAZY! It overheats so much, at one stage it turned off by itself 6 times within 30 minutes. The battery life is crap, it never lasts longer than 2 hours and that's pushing it.The keypad heats up so, so much it actually feels like it's burning your fingers.
Everything about this laptop is crap, probably the worst decision I made buying this, mind you, I only purchased it about 14 months ago.
Do yourself a favour, DO NOT purchase this laptop!

I bought one running the same setup as abbey above, however after 5 months of reasonable usage and demands (used only 50Gb and played Rome Total war - a 2004 game!!!) it kept crashing playing the game and now I find the HD has failed and won't load anything. My first Dell and whilst moderately pleased with it for the money it does make you wonder if some of the components they used were cheaper to offset the good price....it's going back tomorrow!

Had some issues but am working this out.
• • •

The laptop for me had much better build quality for the specs that any of the competitors I was looking at, and overall I am very pleased with it, however I have had some issues, the hdd was faulty and after e-mailing dell support (within warranty) and dropping it off it was replaced by the next day even though I was warned it could take up to 2 weeks.

The laptop has always been overheating, this isn't really Dells fault as I use the laptop a lot for gaming and this is always a bad idea for laptops as to many components are crammed into such a small space that it will overheat. Dell support e-mailed me a BIOS update that turns the fan on more, this however appeared incompatible and soon windows explorer started crashing and Dell offered to send a technician to my house to fix it for free. (Bear in mind that my warranty only covers a remote diagnosis and drop off repair.)

Now don't think there is anything bad about these laptops, my friend has one and he has never had a problem, I was simply unlucky with mine and have had a good experience with Dell Support and will continue to shop Dell laptops in the future.

So I've had an N5010 for just over a year now. I'm not sure what to say... The CPU performance is good etc. but the graphics card is awful! I try playing Need For Speed Shift & it lags like hell! But it gets worse... I've had to replace my hard drive because there was system repair fault (not anything to do with viruses, I'm very careful with them) & then my screen broke by just lifting it up from one corner! Then when I replaced it (£160!) half the screen has a fault in it! I'm never going with dell again. The performance is good but the build quality is absolute rubbish!

This is the last time I purchase Dell. Obviously they have problems with hardware quality with their assembly and subtier suppliers.

bought the lappy about a mnth back wid the following specs:

i just got this N5010

with core i3 2.53 GHz

4 GB ram

5000 GB HDD

Display adapter : ATI 1024 MB dedicated model ( hd 5470 )

the laptop is working great...the processor is fast and hasnt given me even a minor glitch till now. lets hope it remains the same.
the looks are decent but the resolution is a turn off.
the placement of the touch pad is a lil off and i keep touchin it and placin my cursor all over the place.
the turn around of the function keys takes a lil getting used to but its not making me curse the lappy. would have preferred atleast 4 usb ports but i guess these days its the norm to jus give three.
for 38500 its a great buy though.

Stu, since the N5010 comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, maybe you'll be able to use the Mobility Center to switch the F# and Fn keys functions. Hit Windows key + X. My N5010 has a section for this on the Mobility Center set by Dell itself.

Been using for vid and photo editing and some games.having no problem at all. check your laptop specs before commenting on game/software performance. n5010 comes with different specs.if you buy model that come with shared memory graphic card,dont expect it to perform well on gaming.and its normal for a production batch to have some defect product.even famous apple has the same problem.as long as your laptop under warranty, u dont have to worry about this problem. highly recommended for cheap,high spec laptop.

I love my computer it hasn't given me any problems and I am thankful. I don't know what you guys are talking about with the battery and the fan issues maybe you need to take them back. No matter what computer you buy there is apt to be problems no matter what. So be happy with what you got.

I bought one last year and have been regretting every moment ever since… first the hard drive failed, then the RAM and now the battery, which gives you 2hrs in idle mode at best, suddenly developed problems with holding charge… Thankfully all this happened when the thing was under warranty so besides the emotional aggravation and several missed deadlines, didn’t have to worry about much…
Strongly advise against buying this….

I have nothing but good things about this system. It does have a glare problem, so stay out of the sunlight. I put some old ext. speakers on and sounds great. No fan noise on mine and plays any game i have put in it. Very fast w/4G ram, 640G hdd,only thing how much ram will the I5 2.4G system handle?

I don't know what you guys talking about, fan noise?
I can't hear anything. Most of the complaints are such a minor one for such a cool product.

It's well made and good quality, works like a champ and I love it. First Dell I ever bough. The reason was that HP, Sony, Toshiba keboard suck big time. The keyboard on the dell is perfect for touch typing and feels just right. That's the only reason I bought a Dell.

It is a pleasant surprise to see how well this baby is put together. I think people are overly critial and spitting hair on INSIGNIFICANT matters.

If you have a bad computer or don't function, take it back. Am getting two more of these this year. For the money, you can't go wrong.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
