Battery is inaccessible, avoid!

John Gallagher, Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: I have this ultrabook for a while so I can give it a fair review. The worst part of this laptop is where the battery is located. You have to take the entire computer apart in order to reseat the battery that jogs loose.

Don't buy. Very weak display. Bad support software.

Jwaveve, Amazon
21 August 2014
  • Summary: As a PC it is ok but it has the worst display I have owned since the 80s. The touch screen feature seems pointless and to me useless. Also the Dell maintenance add on software is doesn't work well and is confusing.

Hardware is OK, but Windows 8 wastes too much time

25 January 2014
  • Summary: The design of the hardware is nice. I was happy at first. However, after using Windows 8.1 for a month, I am asking my spouse to trade his new laptop that had Windows 7 for this one.

Little annoyances.

G. Mayes, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: The annoyances piled up on this laptop, causing me to return it. First, the touch pad is very unresponsive and I found myself having to tap multiple times before the click finally registers. Then the SSD on the hard drive started re-recognizing periodically in the task bar.

Hoping for improvement

Marabrook, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: The Laptop came after some difficulty and started up but had problems with software. I was able to reach someone at Dell that was quite knowledgeable and after a few hours the computer was generally working. I have problems with WIN8 and will have to deal with it.

Fuzzy, uncrisp images, returned for refund

user927, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: This was a little heavier than I wanted, but that wasn't a problem. I am coming from an HP and it was easy to turn the mouse pad off on that (double click) and googling, the only way I could find to turn this mouse pad off was to go into the settings and manually the. It off.

Product information was incorrect

Morris Yoder, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: The product description claimed this laptop had a 1920x1080 display but the product I received had a screen resolution of only 1366x768. Deceptive advertising was used as well by posting the processor max boost speed instead of the standard speed. Other than that, it is a decent laptop.

Is not what the specs promised, have tricky description

Daniel Murillo, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: This ultrabook is ok, but the specs aren't clear neither honest. They described a 3.1GHz Intel core i7 but it is a 2.0GHz Intel Core i7 with turbo that reachs up 3.1GHz, so is true that this ultrabook has 3.1 but using the turbo. I feel cheated with that spec.
