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.
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.
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.
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!
Summary: Honestly windows 8 is not that bad, after I kept reading review after review and everyone kept complaining how bad windows 8 is I was actually terrified to make a purchase with windows 8 in it. I guess each individual have their own opinion, but if you are scared because of the new windows, don't be, you will be able to pick it up in no time, I just spent less than 15mins and I have the basics already.
Summary: I bought 2 laptops 1 for me 15Z & the other for my husband 15R.Husband is happy with his, & Im not too happy with my 15Z. Battery life is very short & Facebook games don't work as well as they should. I havnt explored very much of the windows 8 because it seems like after a couple hours I have to plug in the laptop again for the battery. So I went back to my old laptop & my 2 year old desktop to play games & other stuff. Very Sad!!
