Summary: Dell and Microsoft are just marginal companies now. This laptop is nothing special. Not fast, touchscreen is a gimmick not productive. Windows 8 is backwards hard to understand. You will not find any improvement with this package. I basically is necessary tool for light work and checking emails.
Summary: I bought this laptop in 2012 as my first real laptop of this century. My other one was ancient and useless. Originally back in '12 the Turbo boost was amazing and the speed was great! Now fast forwarding to 2014 she is slowing down.
Summary: This laptop is used really for online social media and research. The one thing that is a problem consistently is video downloading, it just never works properly. Window 8 is a royal pain and not at all user friendly to someone who has used windows for the last 20+ years.
Summary: The delivery was fast honestly. The laptop was a second hand refurbished but according to seller in excellent condition. The first day the "C" key popped out of the laptop. The computer came with a load of spyware.
Summary: I received this laptop as a warranty replacement after a large debacle with Dell over a previous issue. As stated in the title, it's definitely not an amazing laptop, but it's not an altogether terrible computer. First off, it's a Dell. Dell makes a huge range of computers.
Excerpt: My 75 year-old dad needed a better computer to replace the one he had. While this is not a screaming, top-of-the-line machine it was a perfect choice for his usage. Since this was a clearance item it was an excellent value and the perfect machine for his needs.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Quality Construction
