Dell Inspiron (i17RV-8183BLK) 17.3-Inch Laptop is a great laptop for only $449 dollars. I was in the market for a great laptop and this one definitely fits the bill. This laptop is lightweight and thinner than previous versions of the Dell Inspiron. Once you boot up this device you will notice right away the sharp images this laptop can display. The screen is large (17.3") and will allow you to do anything you could do on a desktop. The screen displays at 900p (1600 x 900 ) HD. This laptop is filled with many more great features. I have listed a few that I felt were important for you to know before making a purchase. They are as follows:

• Processor: 1.9 GHz Pentium 2127U
• Display: LCD 17.3" HD Plus WLED AUO
• Memory (RAM): 4GB, DDR3L, 1 DIMM, 1600MHz
• Storage (hard drive): 500GB 5400 rpm HDD (More than enough space)
• Optical Drive: DVDRW +/- 8X TSST

Again I think you will love this laptop like I do and I would definitely recommend it.

Thank you for reading my review, if you have any questions feel free to email me, I would be happy to help you with any questions you have

Yes, I have actually purchased this laptop. It was used to replace an IBM 14.1" with XP.

Presentation: Very nice. It's relatively thin, big and a bit heavy compared with a MacBook but then the price is a lot better too. I love the carbon-fiber-like dimpled finish and the color. It actually feels like Dell spent some money on the design rather than handing it off to the engineers for the finish.

OS: The biggie. I got the Windows 8.1, which is somewhat of an admission that MS screwed up. I've already used Win 8 on my Android phone but still getting used to it on a laptop. Makes more sense on a small mobile device. Everything I want to do, I'm still using the work around to get back to the old style. Just because it's different doesn't mean it's good and why fix something that isn't broken.

Speed: Of course, this is much faster than my old IBM, I love the speed, and I love the price, which is even less than I paid for my IBM when new all those years ago. I've got 4GB of RAM but may upgrade later. The laptop is still new so doesn't have a lot of programs hogging and clogging up processing power. And start up and shut down is so fast it's amazing.

Functions: The specs are all posted above so I won't list them here. The only port that I miss is for my old VGA monitor but it has an HDMI port so I just need to get a converter. My printer has wifi and it only took a few seconds for this to connect wirelessly.

Overall: I love this laptop. It's fast, looks sharp and the price is great.

I have to give the Dell computer 5 stars and the Windows software, if I could, no stars, I hate windows 8. I did upgrade to windows 8.1 that gave me some satisfaction. I certainly hope, when windows 9 is released, it will be a big improvement over this horrible windows 8.

Love the computer....

It was hard getting used to window 8, but once I did I go threw it like a breeze. The computer is small enough for a lap top and big enough to use as a desk top.

It does nearly everything I expected it to do. Getting used to WIN8.1 took only a few days.

My one negative is that it's really snooty about connecting to my other PCs on the network with different OSes via WIFI, though it's OK with the one using Ethernet and XP. I still haven't figured out how to get it to talk to my WIN7 WIFI laptop. Fortunately the laptop talks to the XP machine OK, so I can connect to the new LT through the WN7 laptop and the XP desktop for now.

It connected to the Xfinity TC8305C modem/router and Internet without a problem.

I am pleased with this laptop. I am still learning new things about it. I was disappointed to find that there were no written instructions with it. Some of the things I have learned have come about by my stumbling on them.
