Summary: Purchased this PC for my son who attends a university where Windows 7 is the standard operating system. The system is a little slow to boot up, but it will provide him the platform he needs for his studies.
Summary: I purchased this product for my wife and kid at home. The size is 17inch LCD. The CPU is i5. Hard-disk size is 1T. It is enough for my family to use this laptop for the entertainment, education and on-line service. The OS is 8.1 as latest. It looks great.
Summary: After graduating from grad school, I needed to up date my much used Inspiron 1564. I was very pleased with that laptop so I decided to go with another Dell. Not a huge fan of Windows 8...maybe if I had purchased a touch screen I would be more jazzed about it.
Summary: For someone coming from Windows 7 to Windows 8, it is kind of daunting. Everything seems to be moved all around and finding applications like Control Panel, printers, etc. is not easy. The volume of the sound is disappointing, not as high as my older inspriron.
Summary: The main reason I purchased this laptop is because it had Win 7 on it. I was disappointed with the speed of this laptop. I have an old laptop (Core 2 Duo, T5800 @ 2:00GHz) which is surpiisingly much faster than this new dell laptop which has a much more advanced processor (i3).
Summary: Computer contained all he needed to replace his old Dell XP Latitude D 820. Larger keys for large hands is a plus along with the large screen for easy viewing not requiring reading glasses. Windows 8 works fine since an upgrade from XP was necessary.
