Summary: I have had this laptop for a year and reloaded the OS on it immediately after purchase to make it how I wanted. Battery life is about 4-6 hours depending on how much I use the DVD and the processor. Everything is what I expected and fast enough to run what I need on the system.

Bad service for this seller, and bad laptop either
4 August 2012
Summary: Seller refused to refund. I called Dell support. Dell requested me to pay $245 for one years service before I deliver this Laptop to him for repairing. It is hopless and too expensive to repair this laptop (Comparing: I brought it $696). It happens after I brought it about 33 days later.
Summary: The Dell Inspiron i15RN with i7 performs great. I use it for everything from basic applications like microsoft word to processor intensive games. Screen is perfect size. The only thing that bothers me is, as with all laptops that I've ever used, the fan intake is on the bottom allowing no cool air to enter.
Summary: I got this computer in December as a gift. A month later the hard drive died. I'm not a computer person so I don't really know what happened, but it had to be replaced, and I lost everything on the computer. I do know that this did not have to do with a virus or anything like that, it was just a failure. Another big issue has to do with the mouse pad.
Summary: This computer is great, the touch pad is terrible!!! Even if my hands are not on the touchpad while typing, just resting on the case above the pad, I can hardly type anything without my curser jumping in the middle of a sentence I have previously typed, opening up excel while I type, open up IE when I type, open up other programs when I type, it is VERY BAD! Unless resolved by DELL I WOULD NOT BUY this computer.
