Don't buy. Very weak display. Bad support software.
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. The three magic buttons in the corner stopped working early on and are not noticed by the Dell maintenance software. More time should have been spent integrating with Windows and less time trying to make Dell software a star.
Summary: when we look at pictures and some low contrast movies the screen is getting dimmer and looks like camera negative reel...the fans runs very low through which i had to purchase a cooling pad in return for overheat....
Summary: First off let me say, I love Dell.. (The 15z is making me think different at the moment) I really enjoy the features, and how well it's integrated with windows 8.1. It feels solid, looks very good- professional.
Hardware is OK, but Windows 8 wastes too much time

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. The Windows 8.1 update process, glitches with vendor's drivers, and learning the new navigation have wasted many, many hours. The Windows 8 interface is more complicated and pushes users to buy software apps rather than provide any useful functions for navigating and using the computer.
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. Then the touch screen started experiencing ghost clicking to where I had to disable it for the laptop to function. It's a nicely spec'd laptop, but I found myself pulling my hair out over it.
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. Maybe there is an easier way, but I couldn't find the information. I liked the backlit keyboard, and figured it would just take time to adjust to a different brand and learn the little differences.
Is not what the specs promised, have tricky description

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. Other tricky spec is that has 32GB of Solid State Hard Drive, I was excited about that spec, and was disappointed for me when I look in to My PC and didn't find this storage device is the list.
Not 1080p, NO SSD, Not 3.1 GHz, falsely advertized specifications, beware!

Summary: Amazon did the same mistake with their Dell inspiron 15Z deal. They shipped me much lower specification laptop than they promised me on the deal WTH?, the laptop they were supposed to sell was supposed to contain 32 Gb SSD, 1080p HD and i7 3.1 GHz, but none of those specifications match, I got a much lower specs laptop SIGH!!!, I am very disappointed by amazon response, time to switch, given now amazon has stated taxing I would rather walk into a store and buy.
