Summary: I purchased this laptop about a year ago because of the low price and seemingly decent specs. However, the amount of problems I've had with it continue to rise. Plain and simply put, it is all around terrible.
Summary: Yes, believe the other reviews. It sucks. Extremely slow, sluggish, freezes constantly. Touchpad opens and closes things I didn't click on. I don't know which is more at fault, Windows 8 or the Dell hardware. And i don't really care.
Summary: This computer will drive you mad. My god I want my money back! Known touchpad issues make you want to throw this POS across the room. The audio crackles using speakers or headphones due I presume to some sort of driver issues.
Summary: Overall this is a great college laptop. It is the perfect size and weight for transporting. I got mine already updated to windows 8.1, and I actually really like the operating system, especially with the touch screen. Boot time is very fast. The hardware is amazing considering the price.
