Summary: Enjoy using this laptop, switched from 7 yr old desktop. Bought this Dell for size of screen & keyboard--husband has large fingers. Other smaller keyboards too sensitive. We didn't want expensive touch screen. This keyboard easy to use, mouse pad works well, screen excellent pixalls & color, great price for quality product (so far). We had Windows7 so had to adapt to Windows8, different but easy to use, change always frightens folks but I like Windows8 so far.
Summary: Haven't used it, because it is the Christmas gift for my college age son. I opened it up, and my husband said "Boy, that thing is big!" This is exactly what he wanted and at a good price. It really looks good. Nice and heavy and sturdy looking. Thanks.
Summary: I had to make the difficult move from an old Toshiba laptop with XP to finding a new laptop that would have Windows 8. My husband and I have been very satisfied with this purchase in the couple months we've owned this computer. I like the large screen that is nicer on my eyes than others, which easily trigger migraines in me. I won't go into technical details because I'm not a computer techie.
Summary: I was able to easily upgrade to 8GB buying a single 4GB memory module for $40, and I found this laptop on refurb for about 330 with no problems at all. Plastic on back seems a bit flimsy, more like a hard black rubber, but it works. Easy if slow to upgrade to 8.1 and to fix the minor OS issues, the only issue I had was that WiFi was higher priority than Ethernet, this is a matter of moving the Ethernet network over the Wifi in network management.
Excerpt: Если коротко ( а как иначе уложиться в 2000 символов отведенных яндексом) то можно сказать, что ноут удачный. Выполнен в минималистском стиле, никаких рюшек, хромированных вставок, и прочей чепухи. Даже светодиодики состояния убраны на передней торец и не видны при работе. Как говориться в рекламе Quadratisch. Praktisch. Gut. Качество сборки хорошее. Клавиатура «как бы» полноразмерная. Опять-таки на любителя, кому то нужно кому-то нет.
