I am about to place my order for the Dell Inspiron 14-R.
Processor 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5-2450M processor 2.50 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.10 GHz Operating System Genuine Windows® 7 Home Basic SP1 64bit (English) Display 14.0" HD WLED True-Life Display (1366x768) with LCD Bezel Memory3 4GB4 DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz Hard Drive 500GB3 hard drive (5400RPM) Video Card AMD Radeon™ HD 6470M - 1GB (For ICC) Warranty 1 Year Complete Cover Accidental Damage Protection Advertised System Weight 2.38kg
1)I would like to know whether I should have AMD Radeon or Intel HD3000 GPU?
I am going to use the laptop mainly for programming work .However I would like to avoid facing any possible problems. However I would also not like to waste money on fulfilling
fantasies. I would like to save the cost if it is needless/
2)Should I Go for Win 7 Home Basic or Premium ?
I already have a pirated copy Win 7 Ultimate
Does it void the software warranty of Dell if you install a pirated copy of windows 7.
Should I go for basic if I can work on the virtual box?
3)Should I purchase 14 or 15 inch?
I am not going to travel a lot maybe like twice a week with it.
Is there a problem with viewing in 14 inch screen?
Is there significant improvement in 15 inch screen?
It is going to cost me 60 dollars more for 15 inches.Is 15 worth the money?
4)How much warranty cover should I purchase first up?
And is there any fineprint that I need to safeguard against?
Please answer in points with detailed explanation if possible.
