Summary: Although, its weight does not seem to support the "Ultrabook" ideal, it does have a thin profile with the benefits of many extras. The backlit keyboard is a must for me and the Dell is the best I've seen. If you are looking for an Ultrabook to carry around from meeting to meeting, this may not be your best choice. However, if you are looking for a thin quality laptop with touch screen and backlit keyboard, it is worth checking out the Inspiron 15Z.

Summary: This is an excellent laptop. It's fast and satisfies my needs, as I had carefully chosen its features to provide what I wanted. The non-removable battery is not so stellar, though. Seems to run out in only 2-3 hours, tops. I wanted to get a second, supplemental battery but as I said, this isn't the kind of laptop where the battery is removable. I can get another battery of the same kind, take apart the unit, and replace the battery.
Summary: This laptop has all the necessary hardware my home and out of office use. Extremely fast, and so far no hardware problems. Windows * is not the greatest, but you can upgrade to 8.1 with no problems. Dell has great customer support also.
Summary: This is such a delightful piece of electronics. So user friendly with the Windows 8 (converted to 8.1 with the capable assistance of Dell Tech Support), operating system, stylish, with a lightning fast processor. No matter what the purpose, writing/storing files, watching videos, even just surfing the web, this machine has everything you need and then some.
Summary: Impressed with the all round performance, for the price dell did put a great product together. Really dont have much to complain about but a lil more battery life would have been good, plus its kinda a lil heavy otherwise, great look and very good product.
Summary: Laptop is great. Windows 8 is frustrating and a big time waster. Thing that used to be one click away are now two or more clicks. And many things are hard to find. And something just don't make sense.MS and others Software companies have migrated standard programs to apps which require additional "gestures" to do things that are simple clicks in prior Windows versions. For example Adobe pdf reader. Older versions have standard function menus (e.g.
