excelent choice cover all my needs for school basic and else December 18, 2014
Cheap make Not so cheap price I couldn't return the laptop fast enough. The keyboard was cheap plastic, set into the base crooked. The mouse device is sketchy and rough, it does not flow when you scroll or move the mouse, very tacky movement. The exterior isn't pretty, it all just looks cheap, but the price is not cheap. I exchanged it for HP and got quad core processor for just a few dollars more. December 6, 2014
It's what I wanted!! I looked a long time and did a lot of research before I decided on this particular laptop computer. I knew basically what I wanted, but after I started to really look to buy, I was a bit overwhelmed by all of the choices! I decided on this one because it had the size screen I wanted, it was a touch screen, had a highly reviewed processor, and it was a price that I could afford. Office Depot had it on sale at a really good price and at just the time I was ready to buy--so I bought it!! It weighed a bit more than I thought it would, and it is easier to use sitting at a table than on your lap. Windows 8.1 is much different than what I am used to, but I will learn it in time! Overall, I am pleased with my purchase! December 2, 2014
Good value for purchase Bought this laptop for my sister studying undergrad. She needed a decent laptop with good battery life, not too heavy to carry and good performance. A laptop that can last for the next 2-3 years. Just like any other Dell laptop, this is not too flashy but gets the job done. Easy to setup and use, looks good, works good and has all the bells and whistles included. While this is not a top-end laptop in terms of processor, RAM, graphics card, SSD, HDD etc. It is good enough for a student. Had to stop a bunch of Windows and pre-bundled Dell services to get it to perform better. It now boots up in less than 2 minutes with minimal start up programs. I have noticed that the hard drive does keep churning through the launch of every program and is a little loud. Windows 8.1 is pretty good and the touch screen is an added plus. 15.6" display is big enough with lots of viewable real-estate. Keyboard is not backlit. Not too heavy nor too light. DVD optical drive is good for people still using disks. All rounded laptop for a great price! November 17, 2014

    Designed for the real world — because that's where life happens.

    We want you to love your new PC for years to come. That's why we test Inspiron laptops for reliability not just in the places where you expect it, but for the open road ahead.

    Turn up the heat: From locker rooms to locked cars, we test Inspiron laptops for survival in harsh short-term heat conditions of up to 65°C/149°F.

    Everything hinges on it: We test Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure they still feel tight, even after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times.

    Keys to success: We test commonly used keys for 10 million keystrokes and touch pad buttons 1 million times with no failure. So go ahead, finish your novel.

    Buttoned up: No matter what you set your power and multimedia buttons to do, we've tested them all to survive up to 40,000 pushes.

    Twist and turn: Call us excessive, but after twisting an Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected.

    Always a good fit: You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 750 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
