Summary: Battery life is about an hour FULL ON while doing update, I consider that pretty good as the PC was working pretty hard and the HD was spinning for the full hour Looked up the service tag and found the PC was on contract until Nov 2015.
Pros: Inexpensive, solid Laptop, works out of the box. Windows 7 Home was clean with minor bloatware (iTune). Clean with very very minor nicks and scratches. Windows 10 upgraded was simple but with a catch.
Cons: Forced a Windows 10 upgrade and it worked really well except there is no driver for the accelerometer and Dell does not support Windows 10 driver for this laptop. Not a big deal, get a SSD if you plan to upgrade to Windows 10. No extras like Bluetooth, mSATA slot, etc. DVD drive? Yea! Power brick...
Summary: If software were fixed I would give it 5 stars.
Pros: Fast laptop for the price and the CPU is removable. Ram can be upgraded to 8gb
Cons: The pre-installed Win 7 has errors. Win 7 will not update or upgrade to Win 10. Windows 7 upgrade and Win 10 Free Upgrade needs to be removed from software for it to work properly. Luckily I am tech savvy so I just re-formatted hard drive and installed Win 7 I had already purchased.
Excellent deal! i5 Processor Laptop for under $150
18 February 2016
Summary: Excellent deal ! i5 Processor Laptop for under $150, outdated USB 2.0 ports but if you upgrade Memory to 8G and replace the Hard Disk to SSD Disk it will run all Application like a charm ! Highly recommended even though the shipping is a little slow (1 week).
Summary: Changing this review, I like the machine but it did give me some headaches at first when I tried the upgrade the Win7 Pro to Win10. First thing, upgrade the Dell drivers. If you run into the error where it won't upgrade to Win10 because the download times out or won't start.
Summary: It was not a new laptop, but I purchased it since I use the same model at work. So far I have upgraded to Win 10 and has performed better than expected considering this Dell version was not rated very well by Cnet. I use it daily and so far it working well.
Summary: The one I got has a wonky mousepad, which is irritating. I actually use it on my lab most of the time so an external mouse is not really an option. I'm thinking of a trackball mouse, though. But the system is clean, the keboard and screen are good, and I'm very happy with it.
Pros: Price, good specs, the system I got is very clean.
Cons: System will have problems but you won't know what they are up front.
Summary: The product itself was great, there were no cosmetic issues or hardware issues aside from the battery only lasting 20 minutes. I purchased a 12 cell battery for this laptop from a third party seller that supplied 6-8 hours of continuous use on the "performance" setting in windows power manager.
Pros: Beautiful industrial design, solid build quality, tons of upgrade options, and it works great! I purchased this for a client, not only did they fall in love with it, but so did I. I was a little skeptical about purchasing from this seller but at the end of the day I did not regret it. product shi...
Cons: Although this product had many pros which I listed above, I have purchased hundreds of laptops for clients over the years, and this one had me concerned at first. I did mention the case was immaculate but upon opening the lid i realized someone had coated the laptops typing surface and palm rest ...
