Great Laptop, But Aesthetic Values Are Lacking

When I first bought the Dell Studio 1555, I was rapt with its 4GB of RAM and enormous HDD. It was extremely fast and I was very pleased with it. That's when I opened the curtains. Once the light hits this Dell Studio 1555, the glare factor sets in and the screen becomes very light and the text on the screen can get difficult to read. The black 'framing' of the monitor is not too bad and I was glad that it didn't reflect any light, but it did tend to get smudged when opening the laptop (there is no other way to open it other than touching the 'framing' of the monitor, so this can get a pain - cleaning the framing repeatedly!).

I did like the webcam side of the laptop. There is a webcam and microphone built in, but there is also 'face recognition' software pre-installed by Dell, so when you are opening up the laptop for a new session, you don't have to type in a password as the computer uses your face as the 'key'. This is one big plus.

All in all, the speed of the laptop is brilliant but it's lacking in the aesthetics.
