Perfect for transferring and retrieving large files between your PC and an external hard drive or digital camera, USB 3.0 offers the speediest, most efficient way get what you need from external devices.

I want to first say that I have only had this laptop for 2 days. However, in those 2 days this laptop has already surpassed anything my Toshiba or Lenovo have achieved in a much longer period of time.

1. Speed - This laptop, with its AMD A-6 quad-core processor(with 4GM Ram), is lighting fast for what I use it for. I mainly do a lot of multi-tasking online. I will have more than 5 tabs open at once most of the time and this processor handles it with ease. Going from web page to web page is a breeze, even on sites that typically are slow in general!
I haven't tried playing games but from what I understand it deals with games/video rather well too. I'll give that a try later...

2. Graphics - The HD graphics on this laptop are amazing. I would say they surpass those on my HD television rather easily. The colors are crisp and the detail is amazing.

3. Feel (keyboard, touchpad) - I'm still in shock at how nice the touchpad is. It is so smooth and easy to use that it makes me a bit emotional! :). Keyboard is fantastic as well. Only minor issue is I accidently press the wrong key sometimes...keys could have been slightly bigger but not a big deal!

4. Look - The laptop itself is very sleek. The lid is nice and can be replaced with other lids. The keyboard has a nice silver lining around it. It is not heavy either.

5. Software - The Dell Stage software is one of my favorite things about this laptop. It really is this amazing one-stop place for you to handle your movies, pictures, music, social networks(Facebook), etc. Its very easy to use and pops up as soon as you log into your computer! The amazing HD graphics just make that whole experience even better!

Speed - This laptop, with its AMD A-6 quad-core processor(with 4gb ram ) is ok for word excell PowerPoint etc. when it comes to using heavy duty software like photoshop, illustrator the computer keeps hanging. It needs a good processor.
Graphic card - The HD graphic card on this laptop is average. Graphics run slow for the call of duty game!
Aesthetic - I think the inspiron series laptop are one of the very few that look very nice.
The laptop is very elegant. The cover is sweet and can be replaced with other covers
Battery life is decent

I have been using this new Dell Inspiron for a week now. Usually I would wait to review an item, but given that it is the season of shopping, I wanted to give some initial feedback.

One major positive is the 15.6 monitor. It is a decided step up compared to my three year old, more expensive (then) Inspiron. It does seem to be more prone to glare in bright conditions, but for a "budget" laptop, the color (quality and range) is a nice surprise.

This model fills the bill for basic needs with three USB (2.0) ports, microphone and headphone connections, media card reader, an optical drive that burns and an integrated webcam.

One concern I have is that I have had to hard-boot about every other day. Clipping along, surfing, etc., the system has just frozen up on me with the buttons and touch pad doing nothing. It bugs me that, if it continues, I will have to go through the hassle of a warranty repair. If that happens, I will come back and downgrade the review to one star.

The other issue I have is the touch pad. I cannot tell yet if the problem is with it or with me, but it is exceptionally sensitive compared to what I was using. Very annoying to find the screen zooming in or out when I was just trying to move the pointer from one area to another.

So, one week using it and I find myself having to cross my fingers that the system freezes and touch pad issue are short term. If you are reading this as a point of research before making a buying decision, I highly recommend that you search and read other reviews too. If others are complaining of the same thing(s), you have your answer...

Considering the price point, it is with a great deal of optimism that I rate this laptop three stars.

This laptop was bought to meet a time-sensitive need in the workplace. Buying it through Amazon proved to give more computer for the money and much faster delivery than was available from other sources. It's not the most high-powered laptop, but for a basic machine, it was a very good value and arrived exactly as specified. Very pleased.
