Summary: Plenty fast for my needs (email, web surfing, youtube, whatever). One of the better laptops that I've owned. GF like it better than her more expensive, "faster", ASUS. She never was hooked on the ASUS keyboard, but really likes this one! Same here. I enjoy a smaller laptop. Ya know they call the laptops for a reason. Otherwise, they'd call'em lap crushers. Battery life is still great, but I tend not to leave the Li Ion battery in there 100% of the time.
Summary: I used to love my new laptop until I tried to skype for the first time. The other things worked well, but It came with issues in the microphone, in fact, it did not work EVER Unfortunately, I live outside US and I can't send back the product, but It really grinds my gears that I expected a high quality product and that didn't happen! I'm terribly disappointed. I think I won't buy anymore Dell products in Amazon. I don't want that this would happen again!
Summary: Touchpad doesn't pick up on finger motion half the time unless you wiggle your finger several times across the pad. Think about how many times you'll have to do that per minute. Maddening. I bought a Chromebook since Neither Dell nor Toshiba can make a decent touchpad. The Chromebook is flawless.
Not as thrilled as I hoped but I'm excited to have a great product

Summary: Just got my laptop today and well so far I'm not stoked after the first 30 minutes of using it. I'm in the process of trying to update the OS because the video card is flashing (I googled it and apparently it is frequent enough) without any specific interval. The sound is not excellent by any means... and I cannot adjust the bass. There is no way to adjust the mixer or anything as this audio card is not supported.
Summary: The computer is good but not like I expected. The battery doesn't work well. Unfortunately, I am moving from France and I am not get the compputer changed. Moreover I had to pay twice for delivery.
Summary: I love the capabilities of this laptop. haven't quite figured out how to switch the lids yet as I bought it used and haven't seen that info in the paperwork that was sent with mine but as far as speed, memory and graphics go its wonderful
