Summary: When it works then it's a nice laptop. But too often core devices stop working, like functions of the touchpad sometimes when it wakes from sleep (the mouse pointer will disappear) and every now and again the wireless network will stop working until the adapter is reset. On a laptop where the only connectivity is wifi that's not all that good.
Summary: Got this for my daughter who was going off to her first year of college. The unit is well designed and portable. I like the fact that it gives you the best of both worlds as laptop and tablet. It has a very high quality display that makes images appear sharp and clean. However, we run into one issue with this device. The first day of use it overheated and shut itself down. We could not turn it on again until after at least 6 hours.
Summary: It is good if you are on public transit a lot, and would like to do some work and play some games, but not fast enough for the latest Photoshop. I also thought I would use the tablet feature more, but since my smartphone is almost always in my hand I ended up using my smartphone instead.
Summary: I purchased this laptop because I wanted a tablet/laptop combination. While I like the computer, my only complaint is that I HATE Windows 8.0. The super-sensitivity of the touch screen is also hard to get used to because when you are working on the windows screen versus the desktop screen, what you are working on in the past shows up so you have to constantly get back to what you are working on.
Summary: Dell's design for a convertible ultrabook is OK. The laptop is pretty generic -- reasonably fast, good enough battery life, smallish screen -- more or less portable, but heavier than it needs to be. This is due to its innovative hinge design that allows the screen to swivel 180 degrees and collapse onto the keyboard. In practice it works just fine and lets it be held as a tablet, but it's just too heavy to really be used in that state.
Summary: I really liked this system. However at 30 days the mother board when out. Amazon and the shipper will not exchange it and I have had to go through Dell to get the repairs done. I would advise to purchase directly from Dell. I spent and hour getting all the information transfered into my name. Frustrating and I am not sure it was worth the little bit of money I saved.
