Shoddy materials, not good for travel, decent buy for the money
9 December 2014
Summary: This laptop is very cheap. The materials are shoddy, the look isn't too aesthetically pleasing, and the battery isn't great (3 - 3.5 hours). It's great for leaving it in 1 place and getting work done, because it's pretty fast for basic use and it has tons of storage (500gb).
Summary: I had owned three Dell laptops and two desktops before purchasing this one, and was hoping for the good performance and quality I had come to expect from Dell, but I have to say I was bitterly disappointed.
Summary: I would give 5 stars if this computer came with Windows 7. I thought that was what I was getting. Too bad for me. The good: the keys are spaced well to minimize typos, it is extremely lightweight, everything mechanical seems to work well.
This is my third Dell and I bought it after swearing that I

Summary: It definitely has good features. It's light, attractive, instant on, the price was great, it still operates Windows 7 (a plus for me as I didn't want 8) but . . . it seems to be plagued with "Dell" problems.
Summary: I took this computer (from a different retailer) due to some pros, mainly a lightweight laptop with a built-in DVD player/burner, which was important to me. The screen was not bad, even though I would love to see better quality and resolution (IPS 900p).
The laptop arrived on time and has operated without any problems during this first month.

Summary: My opinion is that this units price to value is ok, but not outstanding. So far it has operated as I expected. It is disappointing that the manufacturer doesn't supply a reinstall disk for the OS and instead one has to rely on an image file if the need should arise.
Summary: My previous laptop - Dell Inspiron 1525 - was 4.5 yrs old so it was time for a new puter. I know that there are a lot of Dell haters out there but I had a better experience with Dell than I had with Apple, Sony (piece of junk, HATE!) and Toshiba so I wanted another Dell.
