I already told you yesterday. Spending 50 dollars on that piece of crap is not spending 50 dollars, it's flushing 50 dollars down the toilet. You need to just save up for something that will actually work for more than a week.

I suggest you take more time to save up more and buy something better, that Dell is pretty outdated. Save up about 800 or so and you should find something decent. Dell's laptop models now look alot better than that hunk of crap.

That Dell is about 8 years old now. It's specs saying it's thin and light are laughable. The thing weighs more than some desktops, and has difficulty with xp. Just go for something different when you've saved up more.
