The Inspiron 1200 is a laptop that was first released in 2005 by computer manufacturer Dell. Although slightly dated, the laptop is particularly popular due to its price; customers are able to reduce the cost of the laptop by removing certain features from the hardware if they do not need them. All Dell Inspiron 1200s are released with the following standard specs: an Intel Celeron M 1.3 GHz processor, 256 MB of RAM, a 30 GB hard drive and the Windows XP operating system.

Intel Celeron M 1.3 GHz Processor
The Celeron 1.3 GHz chip is an Intel processor that was first released in 2004. The main feature of the chip is that it can save significant battery life by forcing itself into a "Deep Sleep" state. This in turn causes the laptop to use much less processing power and save significant battery life. The state is activated when the laptop is left inactive for a short amount of time and the processor returns to normal when the user begins to use the laptop again.
256 MB (DDR SDRAM)
RAM (Random Access Memory) is the place in a PC where all of the current/live application, operating system and program data is stored so that it can be accessed by the processor. Having 256 MB (megabytes) of RAM means that the laptop can process data of up to 256 million bytes straight from RAM as opposed to reading it from the hard drive, which takes much longer to do.
30 GB Ultra ATA Hard Drive
A hard drive is the main storage device of your laptop, storing and saving any usable or non-usable data and key operating system files. A 30 GB hard drive means that the Dell 1200 laptop can save data of up to 30 GB (30720 MB) in size. As a point of reference, a standard three-minute music file measures at approximately 7 MB.
Microsoft Windows XP Operating System
Windows XP-short for experience-is an operating system first released by Microsoft in 2001. Windows XP remains one of the most popular operating systems today and is particularly effective at improving the security and safety of your laptop with an improved Windows Firewall, regular automatic updates and a personalised user login system to protect your files.
