Summary: Do not buy!!!!! Battery does not charge from out of box. Chip to run keyboard and mouse was not included. When I called supplier they sent me a chip but it does not work. Right now no one will help correct problem. Waste of money.
Summary: bought it, feel stupid for buying it. Very expensive mistake (got the flash memory and office, the top of line upgraded version) Software buggy, freezes, unfinished product. Hooked up to 100mbps Comcast wifi. My phone is faster. Excellent form factor, poor execution. Last Microsoft product I will ever buy. works fine when plugged into router with optional dongle. but it kind of defeats the purpose, I already have a desktop.
Summary: This computer loaded with Windows 8.1 constantly drops the wireless connection to the gateway (router) and I have to constantly do a troubleshooting step to find it again. All my other 5 wireless laptops, 1 Roku, and 3 game consoles NEVER have problems with the wireless connection. I've downloaded the latest drivers and scoured the web for a solution unsuccessfully. I would hesitate to order again from this seller.
Summary: I have a love/hate relationship with my PC because when windows updates and the WiFi connection goes out for quite some time. I got this product from 365LaptopRepair - Amazon Marketplace, refurbished; they are excellent at what they do and have offered to help me with whatever I have concerns about and extended my warranty with them (if I panic and don't know what to do).
Summary: I mostly love this computer but there is one thing that drives me crazy and I am taking 2 stars of for this. I would love to meet the moron who decided to put the power button on the side! Think about it...it's designed to be portable so what do you do...you pick it up to move it around and how do you do that, since it has no handle you grab it by the sides - where the power switch is and you end up putting it to sleep or turning it off depending on your settings.
AVOID! SAVE YOURSELF FROM DELL'S PRIMITIVELY DESIGNED PRODUCTS...

Summary: This is unbelievable unremarkable garbage. And Microsoft windows 8 makes it even worse. I have no words to describe my frustration and aggravation. This product is a combination of stupid and totally flat-brained hardware engineers with clueless OS developers. This is SLOW. Awfully SLOW and nothing can help it. And knowing that the idiots at dell automatically configure the OS to automatically download and install updates.
Summary: This tablet is astounding in its clarity, brightness, and precise image detailing. It is at the top IMO, measured with IMacs and every other screen out there. At my price of $499, this is an absolute bargain, and you will pay over 2x that much for anything comparable. The drawbacks are a lack of optical drive; and there are those that find Windows 8 to be challenging.
