Summary: Great bargain PC. I gave it to my daughter who uses this thing for everything from homework to watching movies. Battery life is ok. The build (material) feels very weak, but this was to be expected from the price.
Summary: Nice n sleek look. Runs very fast. Keyboard feels great. Worth the money. One big setback is webcam. With just one mega pix video conferencing is really poor. Wish they had HD webcam on it. Otherwise a very good laptop.
Summary: Hard drive crashed in 3 weeks. Dell was very helpful and replaced it immediately but I lost three weeks worth of work (I didn't back anything up because I had no reason to believe it would crash that quickly. After that, though (that was a year ago), it's working GREAT. I do hate the Windows 8, though! Not user friendly at all.
