Summary: Got this to replace my 9-year old (!) Dell which was struck by lightning. The only downside in my opinion is the 16:9 ratio of the display. I know this is generally all that is available nowadays because manufacturers assume that everybody does nothing on their computers but watch movies and play...
Summary: With the exception of a slow HDD, this system is perfect for those looking for work / technical laptop with Windows 7, good 1080P Video card. I replaced the HDD with an SSD within weeks of getting the laptop and the improvement in system response is staggering.
Works fine, just as I needed (Windows 7, good memory, hard drive, and monitor HD)

Summary: I wanted to upgrade my HP-Pavilion (Win 7, i3, 500GB HD, 4GB RAM, not HD Monitor) and most of the computers in the market were Windows 8. For the kind of work I do Windows 7 is more appropriate. This computer is just the right upgrade and works all fine for the 4 weeks I have used it .
Summary: I paid for a 15R SE for $799.99 from Laptop Deals and More which is an independent Amazon seller. Instead, I got an Inspiron 15R 5521 which costs $598.00. I was ripped off and I'm not happy about that. I sent a second note to the seller and still have heard nothing.
