I goofed buying this

lauras930, Amazon
15 January 2015
  • 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. Not sure but it may be a bad hard drive and then I will get stuck buying another one, but not this one and probably not a dell. This one should have never left the factory this way.

Finicky computer

ACL, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • 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. It is working well now that I removed virus & refused to download the updates. One or more of the totally locked system. Tells me there my be another issue lurking about.

My First thoughts...will post again

Jerry Ray, Amazon
2 August 2014
  • 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.....but to my surprise it does not have a flash Card Reader, which baffles me/ So now i have to buy a usb card reader to plug into it.

PIcture shows blank slot for DVD, but not included.

MJSSXM, Amazon
10 July 2014
  • 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. I bought an external slimline DVD at the same time http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0018LO1R8/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ,which I am happy with, but I should not have had to buy one--it should have been included.

  • Summary: Nice laptop for the price. Unlit keyboard and weak wireless reception make it difficult to use except in good light and close to router.

Kinda Early to Be Asking for a Review

tomo, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Received laptop on scheduled. No problem there. It's asking for a review before one has a chance to get familiar with operating the computer, especially since Windows 8 looks very different from 7. Having gotten used to 7, working through 8 seems a chore. Maybe over time I'll change my mind and right a more favorable review. As for the Dell R15 itself, I lke the feel and response of the keyboard, after struggling with a Acer the last couple of years.
