Summary: I've had this laptop for a little over a month now and I'm finally getting used to it. If I had it to do over again, I probably would skip getting the touchscreen. There are some quirks with this machine changing screens if you swipe the mouse too fast. That gets annoying. I do not like the Windows 8 platform, but that's not Dell's fault. The computer as a whole is good. Battery life is exceptional. Sound from the speakers is very good.
Summary: The touchscreen component of this laptop is my favorite component and the price for that feature was not unreasonable. I have not been a fan of Dells computers in the past due to the restrictions my workplace puts on the desktop I have, which slow down information delivery and processing considerably, But after having 2 other laptops from 2 other well known companies fail within 1-2 years, I decided to risk it and so far, its working great.
Summary: their is no scrolling bar on the pad or back light on the keyboard the click buttons on the mouse makes way to much noise when pressing it laptop gets dirty real easy WINDOWS 8 MOVES REAL SLOW ON 4G OF RAM THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST WINDOWS TO DATE
Summary: I was looking for a serviceable laptop that was reasonably light and easy to use. Windows 8 is an acquired taste and it took a "dummies" book to figure out a lot of it. I ultimately had my tech guy set it up with the traditional desktop so I could find the usual stuff that comes up with the windows symbol in the lower left.
Summary: This is my first time using a laptop and I really enjoy it. The keys are nice and soft and the touch display is cool. Now it's not really a touchscreen as I thought but the mouse area is just to touch very lightly instead of clicking. You can click too but just touching is much easier and faster. The laptop itself is a nice size, not too big nor too small. It is sturdy and battery life averages between 6 to 8 hours.
Summary: I was searching around for a budget laptop and this clearly fit my needs. The package arrived on time and the laptop works great! Set up was easy and the handy quick start guide was helpful. This laptop has everything, wireless connectivity, bluetooth, DVD player and writer, USB ports, SD card reader...etc, etc. I uninstalled the McAfee antivirus and installed Sophos Antivirus for which i have a subscription.
