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 video games, but for some of us that is not true.
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 . I just wish that Dell made them better looking. Compared to other computers I have had (Sony Vaio, HP, etc.) this one is the most simple looking.
Summary: This laptop is fantastic. It operates with lightning speed. The battery lasts forever. The keyboard is very comfortable to use. The only fault it has is the windows 8 really sucks for the ease of use. Nothing like older windows programs makes it somewhat time consuming.
Summary: This is a nice laptop with lots of features. Not sure I like the new windows environment but laptop is fast, viewing screen is nice size and bright. I had an older Inspirion 1525 and this is a great replacement.
Summary: I bought this computer as a multi-purpose machine for work (documents and spreadsheets) but also personal and home use (watching movies, editing photos, etc.). It's taken a bit to get used to the Windows 8 interface, but the machine itself is great. I was worried about the keyboard, because I hadn't had a chance to test it out and see how it felt to type on it, but it is very comfortable.
