On the other hand, there are some negatives. The left and right buttons under the keypad are terrible. It feels like you are pressing on a board, and like pressing a board, you can not tell how much of a press is enough to make contact. It is incomprehensible that after all these many years of making laptops, Dell can not come up with better mouse buttons than this - these buttons are an irritation every time I use them.
Likewise, Dell has not provided 2 headphone jacks (1 microphone and 1 headphone) - instead they have combined them into 1 jack. So you need to buy an adapter, which is easy and cheap. But the quality of the voice input is bad - every person I call on Skype or Google complains of the voice quality. So I have had to buy a headphone/microphone unit that is USB, and use up a USB port. I would rather have the traditional 2 jack input for microphone and headset.
Dell allows for system recovery by creating backup media. However, they do not allow you to create backup media on an external drive - you can only create it on a flash drive on on blank CDs or DVDs.
If you are tempted to buy this machine through Dell's website, don't. Buy it through Amazon.Read more ›
* So you think the nightmare stop there. Wrong.
Depot shipped back my laptop and said that the issue was at Hard Drive. And more interesting thing is that they do not have hard drive in stock to fix the issue and will send me one in the mail.
* So you trust their diagnose and waiting for hard drive come to solve the issue, wrong.
The hard drive came . But it was blank and bare. Dell does expect you to install per my conversation with them. It requires to open the cover, remove the screw and mounting bracket, put bracket on another one and put back. Well. No OS, Not pre-imaged. After many hours my time to install the OS, Driver, Networking. Voila, Hard drive is not the issue. Problem still there. Wonder how they came up with this root cause
*So you think they will allow to replace with a working one. Wrong
I called customer service and escalated the case to up management. No result. The up escalation team even playing the hard ball and asked me the follow their procedure to have onsite person to fix the touchpad. So escalation team cannot resolve the issue. Push down to customer service again.
*So you think the onsite engineer should fix the issue, right. Wrong.
The engineer came, replaced the touch pad, no work. Replaced the motherboard, , not work.
*So you think the customer service will resolve the issue by replacing this bad one to good one. Wrong
They asked me to ship back again. Can you believe that?Read more ›
The aluminum encased body feels sturdy and light weight. There is very tiny flex on the keyboard and palm rests. While I would not label it a fingerprint magnet, some fingerprints are definitely visible and the case will need some periodic wiping. While the overall construction looks very good, the very discerning will definitely note that it does not have the finesse of Macs. But at less than half the price of a Mac, there is no room for grumbling on this count.
It comes with two USB 3.0 and one mini-display ports to ensure it does not become technologically obsolete in a year or two. It also has the standard HDMI, USB 2.0 and SD card reader ports. The processor is also Widi enabled. It does not have VGA or DVI ports.
The display is gorgeous and the audio, while not spectacular, is very good and is loud enough without the headphones. The web camera is also good for video chats.
The touchpad is smooth and the sensitivity can be configured through the Windows Mobility center. The touchpad buttons though are really hard and clicking on the outer edges of these buttons will give you sore fingers. You have to press them around the middle or inner edge to be kinder to your fingers. The keyboard is good though I felt it could have been a touch softer to type (I have a Lenovo Ideapad where using the keyboard is a real joy).
The wifi is pretty good and I did not have any issues using it.
Battery life is very good and I get by 5-6 hours on a charge with medium level of processing.Read more ›
