Summary: I thought the computer had a dvd drive. It was not on the equipment list, but the picture of the computer showed one. I checked the questions other customers had asked and one was told that it DID have one, so I ordered it based on that information.
Summary: I was in desperate need of a computer so part of this is my fault but I have had trouble with this since I received it and if I did not need it so badly at the time I would have sent it back. I get errors just starting it up and it shuts down on me in the middle of doing something.
Summary: Not sure why this particular computer has been a problem. I have had reset to factory settings 4 times due to start up problems, a virus on computer, and windows updates locking it up. Should not have had this many issues.
Summary: This laptop is just fine for browsing, watching movies, listening to music, and playing light games (but I suggest investing in a fan, as it does run hot). It cannot handle virtual windows like Oracle very well.
Summary: have only had it a couple of days...so have not had much time to play with it. I was so busy seeing that is had one TB drive and DVD/CD rw (witch many do not have now. I wanted windows 7, it has 2 usb 2.0 ports and 2 usb 3.0 usb ports, wifi, Bluetooth, etc....
PIcture shows blank slot for DVD, but not included.

Summary: OK, I blame Dell for this. Sellers are simply cutting and pasting Dell's promotional information. The picture clearly looks like a DVD, but its a blank panel. It is not listed in the specifications, so everyone is off the hook. Caveat Emptor.
