Summary: I ordered this computer for my 12 year old daughter. It ended up me using it most of time. We all love it. We have 2 other laptops (Toshiba and Acer) at home which were purchased with similar prices. This new Dell laptop is the best in term of speed and easy of use. Touch screen is definitely a plus!
Summary: Great laptop if you are just using it for basic things. I don't recommend getting this laptop if you are planning to play pc games! Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and would recommend for people who are looking for a cheap laptop to buy and don't want anything fancy to get this!
Summary: Dont know about how I would feel if i paid $300+ for this computer but i got it for $177 on black friday during amazon's lightning deals. For that price, this computer is a steal. Does everything I need it to do. Awesome upgrade to my prior laptop which was getting dated. Has camera, nice screen resolution, big screen, sleek feel, thin, and I've always gotten dell computers. So couldn't be happier for the price I paid for this computer.
Summary: I bought this to use with a ScanSnap to convert physical filing cabinet to digital. My only criteria was 1. cost and 2. Intel, but not Celeron. This computer runs Windows 8 very well and will handle everything 95% of computer users will throw at it. I paid $379 for it 12 days ago (11/20/2013). I've seen it as low as $299, and now it's up to $329. I'm about to purchase another for new client.
Summary: I've been a competitor's (TYO) fan for years because of the affordability and features. That being said, I've also been forced to purchase three of them in the past two years because they kept falling apart (faulty DVD drive, blank screen, corrupted hard drive). I took a chance on the Dell Inspiron 3521 after seeing it advertised for under $400. It's simply the best laptop I've ever owned. It's much slimmer than I expected and the textured finish is awesome.
Happy with BF deal. With a standard use it is smooth performance.

Summary: This is my first review that I bought from Amazon. I got this with BF deal. Pro: Of course the Price. Battery about 4+ hours with balace power. With a basic use, like a web surfing, office work, etc, it is super fast. Bright Screen. Free upgrade to Win 8.1 4GB Ram Light and slim laptop even it is 15.6 inch screen Con: If you pay this at regular price, you might have better choice.
Best value for basic office, media, & web surfing!

Summary: This is a great laptop for the price! The SPEAKERS ARE LOUD, and the screen is nice and bright! It also has all your current tech specs like HDMI, USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, WIFI, a Memory Card Reader, and a Webcam. It also includes "essential" old tech like 10-key numberpad, A DVD/CD DISC DRIVE and a REMOVABLE BATTERY! This is all in a durable, hard plastic shell that is LESS THAN AN INCH thick!
Pros: Loud speakers, USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, Durable body, Tight hinges, Optical disc drive, Removable battery
Cons: People complaining about the performance while knowingly buying an entry level computer LOL
