low-end design dressed up w/ fast cpu

M. Hung, Amazon

  • Summary: The computer has awesome specifications, but has a couple design flaws: HDMI port can output 4k at 30hz, and quicksync allows playing 4k video w/ low cpu use. The i5 graphics get decent scoremarks on paper, but it's horrible for running Solidworks. The lighted keyboard looks great, but feels mushy. For occasional typing, it's ok, but it ranks the worst typing experience among >20 laptops I've used. The harddrive sound is very loud.

Great laptop for the money overall

  • Summary: Bought this for my wife to replace a 5 year old Dell e6400 32 bit I had converted to Win 7 and now she can play all the online games the old laptop couldn't handle anymore. Windows 8 was not the nightmare that I had anticipated but need to spend more time with it. Great laptop for the money overall.

Works OK - Hard drive failure a few days after 1 yr warranty expired

Bill Aylward, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: I have been using this laptop now for some time and love it. I did have to replace a hard drive though which died a few days after the warranty was up and Dell would not replace it even though I was having problems with it a bout a week or more before it finally quit entirely. I was however a little lucky as during that time I did copy the major data but lost a lot of video's and other stuff I just did't have storage for at the time..

Absolute Lemon, Horrible Machine

Chris Stromberger, Amazon
16 December 2014
  • Summary: Worst computer we've ever owned. Has always had issues starting--sometimes takes several cycles to get it running, but now, after about 1.5 yrs of ownership, the thing will not start at all. Or won't boot up, I guess I should say, or the display is dead, not really sure. Lights come on, it makes "computer sounds", but display remains black. Have started and restarted, removed battery, unplugged, etc etc. Nothing.

  • Summary: Very good. Bought it from Costco. It had a lot of graphics for basic functions plus extra. It is sadly not available anymore. It is versatile.

great product but...

aviv, Amazon

  • Summary: The computer alone is a great computer. Unfortunately dell intell and other companies shove there annoying programs on the computer (there were at least 10 of these) that slow and worsen the computer. This software must be removed manually after every installation of windows because they are built in to the operating system.
