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.
Had it for TWO months and had to replace the hard drive!

Summary: Two months of owning this computer the screen started blinking in and out. After being on the phone with them for an hour, we decided to send it in for repair. I use this computer for business and had important information on it that I was unable to backup.
Summary: I purchased this laptop after reading reviews. I wanted to move to latest version of windows, but still wanted ability to use mouse and external hard drives. This works great! I didn't run into any if the problems others had mentioned in previous reviews.
Summary: Nice specs and features for the price. I turned to Amazon after searching the local stores for a 17" dell but could not locate any. The battery looks very small but lasts a very long time under fair usage.
Summary: I don't like Windows 8 at all and I didn't realize Microsoft Office has to be purchased separately. If I knew both these things I would have purchased a different laptop that better fit my needs.
Summary: This was a gift to me for my birthday! I am very happy with this machine! More powerful than my previous laptop and has a much larger screen. I use it to look up recipes, or words, or locations, or Whatever! I also play games on Facebook with it.
