great PC at a price that many would be able to afford
21 August 2013
Summary: i needed a good computer to replace a HP and this was in the price range that could be spent. with its 1KB hard drive and 8GB of RAM, this laptop computer has filled the voids left by the previous HP!!! one of the things i apreciate most in the design fetures of this PC is the HDMI output.
Summary: Thought this computer for the best value for the moneyComputer arrived on schedule and looked great out of the box. So far everything works fine except for the display. I bought this specific for playing games, but the display is constant flickering and dimming which makes using it very frustrating. Was hoping downloading drivers for graphics card would help, but it didn't. I saw something online that Dell could have a defect in the connection to the LCD.
Summary: Other than getting used to Windows 8 (I am the fastest learner I know in about 1,500 students and dozens of Professors), which I believe may take months after a few days of survival skills, the PC is fantastic. Dell is doing a great job of helping the 20,000 new ways of making the PC livable. If I spoke hindu it would be bearable.
Summary: WOW, that's what comes to mind when you use this laptop.I downloaded Libre Office, GIMP, and a host of freeware, in less then 23 minutes, everything was downloaded and installed. The programs open in a flash. However Windows 8 is awful, this is not a touch screen, see if you can get Win 7 Pro or Ultimate as the OS. Large Screen, lots of Hard drive space and a brilliant graphics card. 5 of 5 stars....
