Summary: i have the 4gb version of this laptop. i got this laptop pretty much when it can out, and it hasen't slowed down at all. The processor is incredible and it is very good with internet access. It plays all your youtube videos very well, but the 2 downsides are its not very good for playing your everyday games and the battery life is only about 3 to 3 and a half hours. Overall this is a great laptop for working and social media.
Summary: Bought mine in mid 2012. iOversensitive touchpad. Cursor jumping all over. Called Dell tech line. Took over an hour and a supervisor to improve to the point it was at least usable. Over time problem crept back. Fair correction by adjusting keyboard & cursor speed down. Meanwhile, internet research showed many others had same problem. Again, problem slowly got worse for me. Computer once more to the point of unusable.
Summary: The laptop I purchased had much more wear and tear than advertised. It had lots of scuffs and some writing in marker on the bottom of the laptop. Had I known this I wouldn't have bought the laptop. Do not recommend this seller.
Summary: This is a nice little laptop. I had a problem where a message kept popping up, saying "Windows is not genuine." Although the warranty period had passed, I contacted Windows IT Tech and he fixed the problem over the internet. Now it's all good. I bought identical machines for my wife and daughter.
