Summary: Computer worked fine when I first purchased it. The DVD drive does not work now, the disk gets caught inside and I have to use another disk or other tool to remove it. The screen cracked internally, a spiderweb type crack and a blank spot at the bottom center that does not work.

Summary: This was my first laptop and I wanted solid performer all-around. The aluminum and kevlar chassis is beautiful. The computer starts up within seconds and day-to-day operations are fast enough for you, Old Timer.
Summary: At times the laptop seems to have a hard time to connect to a wi-fi. I've used the laptop at various friend's home and performance is OK. We'll see where were at in a few months. Now Sept and one of the USB crashed and not working. I'm having a hard time getting Dell to cover this on warranty.
