Summary: Thought this would be an ideal laptop for taking to university and work but unfortunately not. Dell have released this on Windows 8 without even checking that the drivers work properly! So far had issues with network adapters, the touchpad because of driver issues, and there has been no fix after trying various updates and downgrades, its simply because the drivers are not fully compatible/de-bugged for this hardware.
Summary: While using this computer I have used it for about a year because I didn't have another option and I still don't. The keys recently have decided to only work when they feel like it, in fact I'm using a separate keyboard to type this. After a day of using it I had received a constant reminder to use McAfee even though I already own webroot and a giant circle of dents from the thinness of the screen. If you buy this treat it like a baby.
Summary: After my 8-year-old computer expired, I thought that this model would be a good fit for my needs. Unfortunately, this computer was a waste of time and money. I bought it in August, and it was faulty from the beginning. It would literally take hours to shut down: on multiple occasions I would go away, only to return four hours later to find that my computer was still in the process of shutting down (and no, it wasn't installing updates).
Summary: Why did you claim this as Ultrabook? When I dont gives a proper battery life!!! I just get less than 1 and half hour and that too using it for basic web browsing!!! and you claim it to be 7 hours in your website. I was very much disappointed by this laptop. First I got a same laptop it was crashing now and then(its battery life was also worst), then I got an exchange.
I give it a one star only because it can't go lower. Hate this computer!!

Summary: I have had this computer less than 14 months. Already out of warranty hard drive has failed THREE TIMES!!! What a waste! Lost all of my school work and now at a huge imposition having to deal with customer service to get it repaired. I will never deal with DELL again.
Summary: I bought this computer in the fall but recently started using it for school, I have used it equivalent to a month. it worked great until one day when I could not turn it on. I had to send it back to Dell at the end of Feb and have yet to get it back. last I checked it was on "hold" due to back ordered parts.
Summary: Generaly speaking I like this latop. It's small size and slim build make carrying it around a pleasure. The keyboard layout is good and the general feel of the laptop was more then I expected. The dust covers on all the side ports is a major pain. Latoptop is shiped with a heavy load of bloatware which can be removed but backup the system first. For watching streaming video, remoting into work and general duties this system has enough horsepower to complete your tasks.
