Summary: Computer is a snappy, big screened, nicely designed machine with a great keyboard, and an elegant look. I find the touch pad a bit awkward but am getting used to it. I HATE Windows 8. It isn't the fault of the machine but it just makes everything a few clicks less efficient and the set up took an extra hour because of it. What were they thinking? The most counterintuitive OS ever developed...
Good computer for the money, touchpad is a nightmare

Summary: The title says it all. You get good hardware for the money, but the nightmare was a holy nightmare. After unistalling all the "multi-gesture" features and software, it's at least usable. I can't recall if I ended up using a synaptic driver or default windows drivers after it was all said and done. It was for a customer, and I told her to return it to me if it was unusable. So far she has not. Maybe everybody is not as picky as me?
Summary: It's a nice laptop at a good price, but Windows 8 is everything it shouldn't be. An entirely unintuitive operating system. I installed a start button, on a 7 emulator, which helps but doesn't fix it. I would happily give the laptop itself 5 stars.
Summary: I have a 4 1/2 year old Dell laptop and I thought it was time to replace it with a newer laptop. I have had no problems whatsoever with my Dell in all that time. I fully expected and wanted to buy a new Dell with a 17 inch screen but the prices seemed a bit high. By the way I'm a "Make or buy American" guy and I have been in Austin, Texas where the Dell headquarters is/was(?).
Summary: Rechner stürzte von Anfang an laufend ab, Fehlermeldungen deuteten auf ein falsch installiertes Betriebssystem. Hatte ein TOP Virenschutzprogramm also kein Trojaner kein Virus vorhanden. Unser Fachmann riet uns den Rechner sofort wieder zurückzugeben da da nichts mehr zu machen wäre. Händler entschuldigte sich und erstattete uns den Betrag sofort zurück.
Summary: Guter und zügiger Verkaufs-/ Versandablauf. Neuware ok mit Windows 7 Installation wie gewünscht, jedoch mit einem Dump von einem Dell-Rechner unter einem anderen Windows-Product-Key als auf Original-Kleber beigelegt. In der Packung befindet sich kein Windows 7 Handbuch, aber ein Windows 8 Handbuch.
