Summary: Overall the laptop performs very well. I have haditabout two years now. The only comment I have that becomes a strong negative is the touch pad. The touchscreen is essential because the mouse touchpad stops working every couple of weeks for an hour and then clears itself up.
Nice laptop but pay attention to previous reviews regarding WiFi

Summary: Nice laptop but pay attention to previous reviews regarding WiFi; You constantly need to troubleshoot WiFi connectivity and it resets the WiFi adapter. I have tried numerous fixes and network upgrades to no avail. Other than that it works fine.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I ordered Dell 15.6" Inspiron Laptop 6GB 500GB + 32GB SSD - i15zT-4802sLV but I received Dell Inspiron 15z-5523 In presenting the product on amazon.com was specified graphics card Intel HD Graphics 4400 but the laptop that I received has graphics card Intel HD Graphics 4000.
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.
