Decent laptop with some minor technical issues

VanVortex, Amazon
28 August 2015
  • Summary: While I haven't purchased this laptop directly, my company, Georgetown Mortgage in Georgetown Texas, purchased these laptops for several years and I have supported these laptops in detail. I have taken many of these apart and have done fairly in depth troubleshooting as well as upgrading.

A bit of a surprise

Oliver B., Newegg
7 March 2015
  • Pros: The SSD drive and the I5 chip are a great combo making this system very fast. I got a 6.6 windows experience index and the system was clocked at 22 seconds from running to down to back up during the restart. A bit of a surprise for a older version laptop, and was doubly surprised to find that it ...
  • Cons: Didn't come with a Windows 7 disc as hoped and described but I had one filed away and was able to get the computer back down to Windows 7. Not the easiest of transitions, but there are instructions available.

  • Summary: Bit on the heavy side.
  • Pros: The SSD and the I5 makes this a very fast laptop, sadly I had to experience this through a secondary monitor since the Back-light was burnt out.
  • Cons: This Laptop comes with windows 8 not windows 7 Pro. There is no secondary disk in the box to switch operating systems either.

and it is not a good machine at all

M. Elliott, Amazon
30 December 2014
  • Summary: I have this laptop model for work, with 8G memory and the 2.7GHz processor, and it is not a good machine at all. It boots quickly (go solid state HD!) but it freezes often, and is unresponsive to alt+ctrl+del.

Everything else is great but

Dennis, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't like it only because the keyboard is clunky. The keyboard is so important. I recommend that you don't buy this laptop sight unseen. Check out the keyboard yourself before purchasing.

good customer service

ibrahim i., Newegg
1 July 2014
  • Summary: This computer has a solid-state hybrid drive, I am not an expert but I believe it is a little misleading to put it as SSD. Those are not really solid state, as far as I know. (I hope newegg will correct this comment, or the info on the website)
  • Pros: Good technical support
  • Cons: This is my second review on this computer. I increased the rating by one star just because of the customer service I received from dell for the past 2 days. The send me software to solve the problems i was having with the touchpad, and when it did not work they also tried to solve the problem rem...

disappointing

ibrahim i., Newegg
29 June 2014
  • Pros: could not find one after my experience with the machine
  • Cons: The computer came with a windows 7, and a windows 8 dvd in the box. It was working fine at first. The first thing I did was to do the windows updates, and during the process, touchpad disappeared. (No mouse cursor at all when external mouse disconnected) I tried to uninstall the new driver and in...
