Dell Inspiron e1705 ReviewPosted on 2006-06-08 00:36:27 by LSDsmurf
The construction of the e1705 is not made out of flimsy plastic. The hinges and screws have gone through certain "Road Ready" tests performed by Dell to make sure the laptop lasts a long time. Dell claims to use a magnesium alloy construction on the lid and bottom of the notebook for extra protection, but the magnesium alloy hasn't stopped my cat from clawing it! From what I hear the hard drive has an anti-shock system and that the case is solid enough to protect from falls, however I have never actually dropped my laptop to test this. .
