Summary: Windows 8 is not very user friendly. It's very confusing and isn't compatible with a lot of my previous programs so I have to buy a bunch of new programs to go on the new laptop. If I would have known this I wouldn't have bought this version.
Summary: I'm truly not impressed. There hasn't been a single wow factor with it. I currently have and use multiple tablets and this is honestly the worst of them all. Between an Android, iPad and a Latitude 10- This would most definitely be my last pick.
"Don't buy this product. I have a lemon they won't fix"

Pros: I like being able to have windows instead of android. Battery life is good.
Cons: Screen brightness changes at random. Can't get into the store. Freezes up on me. Spent 45 min & went through 4 tech support departments on phone the other day & didn't even get to talk to anyone who could help. Last one hung up or got disconnected
Pros: It is Windows 8. Speed is OK will perform basic functions.
Cons: Battery life is not great. Battery is used when is sleep mode. Voice commands and dictation are terrible (I feel you need these functions with a tablet ). The essentials version does not a micro-usb charging port.
Summary: I had so many hopes for this unit, but I failed to do the research. I love Windows 8 and was hoping to use this tablet as my primary computer to replace an old laptop. I wanted something light to create some Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and Powerpoint presentations. The screen resolution is crisp and beautiful. The fact that it comes with Microsoft Home and Student Edition made it very enticing. People complain about it not being fast enough.
Summary: I see a lot of potential in a Windows 8 tablet. The problem is that this is far from a good product. The current Intel Atom processor is not up to the task. The graphics ability is the worst I have seen in a long time. And I'm not talking about playing games. I'm talking about browsing the internet. Every browser I have tried has been very slow. But this is not Dells fault, it's Intel's fault. The speakers that kept going out is Dells fault.
