Screen glare is terrible, but overall laptop is alright
2 weeks ago
Summary: If I had known Dell sold the Latitude series laptops I probably would not have bought this one. That being said I had no idea of the terrible screen glare coming from the screen, it is almost like looking into a mirror even at full brightness. That being said some pros are that is has a good processor and is overall seems to be built well.
Excerpt: Laptop I would have to say it's ok the touch screen is cool when scrolling through scroll bars with a scroll bar screen if u know what I'm saying but it's really useless due to the fact the laptop is big it's too far to even reach to the screen it's a pretty fast laptop needed it for school but had to shell out another 175 for Microsoft word smh but if u get it for under 350 it's a good deal
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Too Big For A Touch Scree
Summary: I was use to a 17" so hard for me to get use to the smaller screen. Also every time I go to a different network, the connection to the internet works for a bit and then I get disconnected from the internet and the network connection says Limited. So then I have to disconnect and connect again. I get the message to troubleshoot which I click on and then it says it is resetting the wireless something and then it works (until I go to another place).
Serviceable Computer, Poor Operating System, But Beware No DVD
8 March 2014
Summary: This computer seems to have all the speed and storage capacity I need for photos, word processing, spreadsheets, and internet access. It doesn't have a DVD writer/player, which I was looking for, and ordered this by mistake. However, this was my error. It is quiet, and doesn't seem to get too hot. The biggest drawback to this computer is Windows 8, a real mess of an operating system.
Summary: Bought the laptop from the dell online store. Its a reasonable computer and can do most of the basic tasks required of a laptop but it is very slow due to the 5400rpm hard disk. Also experiencing some problems with the AMD radeon HD8670M graphics card. Screen is too glossy due to the touchscreen and makes it hard to watch movies or videos during the day.
Summary: The main thing I did not like about this laptop was that it kept losing its internet connection. I have been using a HP Folio 13 for a couple years through work and have loved it, never losing connection.
