I have been having a nightmare with this computer and Dell Company. Computer freezes almost once a day, yet Dell tells me it is a software issue. We have tried restoring etc. But does not work. Tried for a refund but they repeatedly told me they had fixed the problem. No, it still has problems. Now they say the time period has expired. It has been 23 days since they shipped it, but only 15 days I have owned the computer. I spent over 5 hours on the phone with Dell today, and been hung up on 4 times. I will not ever buy from Dell again.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dell Inspiron 14z on February 18, 2012
I'm a student, and I was debating between getting a Dell or an Asus EeePC. I went ahead and got this one, because a friend of mine owned the 15z for a bit more.
Here are some pros and cons.

Pros:
-good performance, actually just fine for a laptop this size and price
-relatively long battery life (six hours and 35 minutes)
-I got the black one, I liked the design
-Nice keyboard feel - I type a lot during the day, so the cushy keyboard was nice
Cons:
-The trackpad and buttons are a bit stiff, but not much of a problem unless you use it when gaming
-Lots of dell bloatware. I.e., mcafee security, roxio, and a few others that flood you with popups when you first open the 14z.

Great Laptop

Pros:
Nice bright screen.
Great price (50 dollar gift card for a total of 499.99.)
Lightweight.
Great battery.
No flex in keyboard.
Easy access to hard drive.
Aluminum cover (top and around keyboard.)

Cons:
Plastic Bottom.
Second memory module location is located under the keyboard.
No back-lit keyboard (this really isnt a con considering I knew this laptop would not come with one given its lower price.)

Great computer for what is paid. I installed a SSD and eight gigabytes of memory. It is now lightning fast.

Awful experience so far, pixels broke off all around the screen, had to replace battery once. Please don't buy it.
