Are you ready for 2012? I’m already thinking about my next major laptop purchase. That purchase will probably include something from the newly minted ultrabook family.
My Dell Studio 1535 has been my primary computer for over 3 years. When I purchased the laptop for some reason (a reason that still seems to be rather questionable in origin) I selected a four year warranty. In terms of usage, pretty much every computer in this house gets used on a regular basis. Over the course of the last three years the keyboard has held up surprisingly well. Normally, it is only a matter of time before heavy usage will wear down the lettering on the keys and leave palm prints on base of the laptop clamshell.
