Excerpt: So far this Dell computer with its windows 7 and Intel i3 with 8GB memory and 1TB hard drive has really been great, only time will truly tell.So far I've mainly used it for email,surfing the internet and have burned a few files to a CD'. I'm still getting used to windows 7 after having and using window XP for over 7 years daily. Don't expect this computer to come preloaded with much of anything.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality Construction
Excerpt: Always had good luck with Dell when I've had them. Although this time during set up there are two paragraphs Dell wants you to check. One is that you allow Dell to collect information from your new computer that may be used out of the country....seriously, with all the terrorism,identity theft and wrong doing, why is this EVEN AN OPTION???? Uncheck both boxes, who knows where our information goes anyway.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality Construction, Reliable
Excerpt: It's still early but right now, we are not too thrilled with this. First, the sound recorder doesn't pick up sound, plus the one included is the pits as are the "help tips" (makes the one in XP look like the highest technology), IE 11 (Dell tells us)is better for Windows 8 rather than Windows 7, causing certain issues...and on and on...and we haven't even started doing emails.
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Hard To Use, Inefficient
Excerpt: I bought this computer on sale for $480 at the local staples. It came with better cpu than advertised, a core i5-4440 3.1ghz haswell, which has better video than advertised, Intel HD 4600. I'm upgrading from an old Athlon XP system and I have to say this thing is very fast. Really fast boot time, plays/streams HD video no problem, runs games very smooth, lots of storage.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Never Freezes, Powerful, Quiet, Versatile
Excerpt: went looking for a deal and found one. the assistant manager was a great help. He was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Felt he had our best interest in mind not just trying to sale something. He also helped with the purchase of our surface and that was a huge hit with my husband who is going blind, it is working out great for him. Staples has always been great in helping us when we come in to purchase anything. So grateful that you are in Waynesville.
