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.
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.
Summary: I want to complain about the product that i buy: -the computer hardware presents problems, how is this possible if is a new product? -when attempting to use the product warranty, the company Dell tells me that the warranty is only valid in the USA and not in Costa Rica where the product stay, which is not specified in the product information.
Summary: Note to the MORONS at Dell - if you're going to create the world's most sensitive touchpad, at least give us a way to easily disable it!!!! It makes for a very, very frustrating user experience.
Summary: i love the computer it has everything i expect this is by far the best computer for the money i payed for $499 , just the only thing that i dont like is that the battery runs out in like 4 hours normal use but everything is great in this computer
