An OCD Review

Nona, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: Overall this computer is great-ish. It runs Windows 8, which people tend to love or hate (I'm that rare 'meh' bird) which is important to consider. It doesn't come with any bells or whistles, or practical applications, and Microsoft Office is spendy so be prepared for that extra cost. As far as size, it's reasonable, and the the nice large screen is good for anyone who likes big pictures. BUT. My screen has some sort of air-bubble along the top edge of the screen.

Dell inspiron 15z

ALFO100780, Dell
31 May 2014
  • Summary: I have more than a year with this computer and from the very first moment I had some disappointing issues. Previously I had a HP Pavilion dv6 which is a bigger and thicker laptop than inspiron 15z, but even so, both have the same weight. It is important to mention that I decided to change the HP mainly for its weight. Then I had some performance problems with just 3 months of usage, so contacted Dell technical support and they changed the motherboard of my laptop.

Easy to use, but easy to catch a bug

Clint Goodin, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: This machine boots faster than any I have ever owned. The Windows 8 system with a touchscreen makes navigation very easy, and having a keyboard makes it useful for all applications. Lightweight even with large screen and DVD burner. Downside: Caught a virus rather easily even with so-called protection from MacAfee. Had to restore the system, although most files remained intact. There has to be a better way to catch these viruses before they do damage.

Problems, but Dell made it right...

Brian Baxter, Amazon
20 May 2014
  • Summary: The laptop touch pad did not work when the unit arrived, and as this was a refurb by Amazon, I felt that Dell would be the best option to repair it. I did have to spend about 2 hours with the service department to try many software fixes that failed. Dell initiated a return for service, and did a one day turnaround, and it is working great.. The money I saved was worth the trouble, and I am satisfied with the product, with Amozon and Dell.

Windows 8 disappointing

Saleem Islam, Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: Computer is ok but the software is challenging to use as this is not a touch screen. It restarts in the middle of doing something for example and I have no control. All the rest of my computers are macs and they are just much better.

What Touch Display

monolyth19, Dell
22 December 2013
  • Summary: I received my laptop fresh from production and the touch display don't work. How can this happen coming straight through quality and everything? Now a technician has to come out and resolve this issue. Major inconvenience. We'll see how this turns out in my next review. I would have given better ratings, but it should have been checked out better before it left the facility.

Not as advertised, screen defect also.

Jackrabbit, Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: This looked like such a great deal: a touchscreen Dell Inspiron 15z with specs that all exceeded my current Inspiron laptop specs, as well as some extra goodies like a backlit keyboard, and all for only about $800. Too good to be true? Yes. The most notable disappointment with this product is that the processor is only 2.0 Ghz, not 3.1 Ghz as advertised. My current (much older!
