I got this junk 2 years ago (refurb) and I hate it
8 May 2014
Summary: This laptop sucks. That's an all encompassing statement. I thought I was getting a deal when I purchased it online from the Dell outlet as a refurbished unit. I thought 8 gigs of RAM would off set off most of its other drawbacks because I don't use it for anything super complicated other than using multiple memory-hogging Adobe & Office programs. Not so.
Summary: I bought one of these computers new with just about all the options in May of 2012. It was a great unit until the motherboard had to be replaced. Dell took care of it the next day. Three weeks later they were replacing it again along with the touch pad. Two weeks later another motherboard, touchpad and keyboard along with some software upgrades. It worked this time for almost a year. Now just about the same problem.
Summary: For starters I find it funny that I will be complaning about this computer while typing this review with it. Well to start things off i bought this for College and Gamimg. With the 15z being so light it was a damn good choice for college and it can run games really well, that is for the first 15 min. This thing heats up, like it gets hot... im talking HOT. ive had it randomly shut off during games due to the heat.
Good laptop if it didnt have the inherent battery problem

Summary: I bought this laptop in 07/11 when it was newly launched. I must admit that the looks got me. Dont get me wrong, its a decent laptop. Sleek looks, good display, light weight and decent battery life...it had it all going for it. Until one day, out of the blue, when I got a message while starting it up "the battery has been temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try it again when the unit is at operational temperature".
Summary: Bought this system based on a friend's recommendation who works for Dell. Also was a strong Dell loyalist for over 10 years because my previous laptops were all Dell. Unfortunately my experience with this system has been fraught with troubles. My new laptop arrived and setup was a breeze. However within a week the batter stopped charging and was disabled. After hrs on the phone with Dell and everyone assuring me this was a unique problem, they sent me a new system.
Summary: I purchased this product a fort night ago and from day 1 i saw a problem with the battery charging. The charge never goes beyond 50% no matter how long you connect the charger to the laptop. DELL support said its a static charge problem and recommended a procedure to solve the problem but to no vain. I did not want to take any chances by replacing the battery which was next step and returned the laptop for a full refund.
Excerpt: отдал 40000 руб, ноутбука под рукой нет, играю в адвоката.
Pros: достоинства это заявленные характеристики, ждешь чего то супер классного, по факту характеристики средние, игры идут, но мелено, понравился экран и качество картинки. время работы то не плохое если выключить все из диспетчера задач и перевести в эконом режим отключив рабочий стол, тогда работает часов 6, если ничего не отключать то 2-3 часа максимум.
Cons: недостатков больше, потому как ждешь от 40000 рублей чего то качественного и надежного, согласен со всеми комментариями других пользователей по звуку , фильм реально без наушников не посмотришь если звук в качестве, можно смотреть только средние по качеству фильмы. По перегреву то же согласен, на коленях после 30 минут работы не выдерживаешь держать горячо как от сковородки. перед покупкой читал комментарии про перегрев и не поверил, мол не умеют люди аппаратурой поль...
