Touchpad Deal-breaker

Cranston "Dave", Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: The two issues that many reviewers noted - weight and view angle - were no issue for me at all. It's an otherwise good machine. But I couldn't acclimate to the touchpad and virtual buttons. I tried a dozen or so setting variations for the touchpad sensitivity and palmrest and just could get it to where my palms weren't making the cursor jump and/or the cursor "twitched" excessively.

good performance but...

mario, Amazon

  • Summary: I really wanted to have this laptop but, unfortunately, once I had it, I realized that this machine doesn't satisfied my expectations: too noise, heavy and overheated with a minimum use. At the beginning, I thought it wasn't normal so called tech support but apparently that's kind of normal. In the other hand, it's so fast, good battery, good materials and really efficient.

Laptop is OK overall.

user1xps, Costco
7 April 2014
  • Summary: Great looking laptop. Wireless range is mediocre at best. Battery is not accessible and neither is the memory unless you do major surgery to the machine. But boots up fast thanks to the 32Gig SSD drive. Picture is great. Speed is OK for the money you spent.
  • Pros: great looking backlit keyboard good resolution hd screen
  • Cons: not very fast battery and memory hard to access wireless range windows 8 and 8.1 are both terrible at first unable to install antivirus software.

Disappointing

Christian, Amazon
12 March 2013
  • Summary: Okay so I don't write very many reviews but this one I have to because I cannot find any help, so I figure this may help someone else in a similar situation. I have the XPS 14 (2012) with an i7 processor, 8 GB or RAM, 500/32 GB Drives, and the 630 m graphics card. Upon receiving the unit I had to call into dell (several times) in order to have the heatsync and fan replaced.

Returned it after lots of trouble.

Metatron, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: I had a truly high expectation prior to its arrival. Ironically enough, the first time I boosted it out of box, it didn't manage to log in windows and went blue-screen. In the following days, I would experience the blue-screen issue pretty much once or twice a day, which has certainly frustrated me as I was in great need of a stable laptop to finish my schools works. To avoid any future inconvenience, I decided to return this item.

So close but missed the mark...

Geckobros, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: Pros: Fast all around. Acceptable boot times as well as recovery from hibernate and sleep. Graphics are good enough to play games like World of Warcraft without issue. I didn't try any other games but was able to play WoW with high settings. The look and feel of the laptop is amazing, the back lit keyboard is great. The build quality is top notch. Display is bright however see below. Cons: This is where I feel this laptop failed miserably.
