-Battery Life is about 6-6.5 hours in lower screen lighting(though some other netbook have a longer battery life this is enough for me). Even on the lowest screen light setting is usually good enough for me to see well.
-Keyboard is nice and I am able to comfortably use it.
-The build quality seems great.
-I can browse Youtube, CNN videos and other videos usually without the image being choppy or distorted (unless I'm running several programs).
-Considering the small size, the speakers are surprisingly great. Even much better than my Gateway T-6836 laptop though I won't raise the volume above 80 in fear of blowing them.
-This netbook doesn't get very hot like my laptop does after several hours of use. Thus not having an internal fan doesn't seem to be an issue.
-The built-in camera and mic does allow me to use Skype and AOL instant messenger video chat with no problems.
-The netbook is slow but adequate. This isn't so much as a con as a fact of all netbooks' performance.
-Comes with Window 7 starter (though I've upgraded to Window 7 Enterprise and I am happy).
-The mouse pad is a bit wider than needed but a bit shorter than I would like).
-No plug for external microphone though that wasn't a function I cared for. It does have one built into the computer.
-No HDMI.Read more ›
While yes it is slow, but only because its running the Dell bloatware and the godforsaken McAffee anti-virus. Ok to address this do the following after the purchase:
1.) Uninstall McAffee anti-virus! (this software is junk and takes up too much mem) In its place dl avast or any of the other freeware.
2.) Unistall all other unused s/w (i.e. Dell Support center, Dell online backup support). Windows comes with built-in support already, sys restore functionality, etc.
-lightweight (great at travelling companion or utilized on a train while commuting to work)
-quick for a netbook, 1g, and 250gb hd is plenty
-efficient and quite inexpensive (i bought this from Sam's for $298)
-win7 is great, reliable, and the MS Suite is the usual
-comes with a webcam, perfect while out of the country and need to stay in contact with love ones
-comes loaded with the Dell bloatware and McAffee.
Only complaints really were the description on Amazon was not 100% accurate regarding the OS and display resolution.
Also, if you have a nice wireless router, and have your "N" network running on 5Ghz only, this won't pick it up I don't believe. The built in wireless N card doesn't seem to be able to see the 5Ghz range.
The first tech was happy to help me, but only if I paid $129 for the fix (on a $299 computer!) -- I declined. I was transferred to Wireless support who tried earnestly but unsuccessfully to fix the issue, declared it a software problem and transferred me to Customer Care. Customer Care would not assist me since the vendor in their records did not match the vendor from which I purchased the unit. I spoke to supervisors, sent emails, and at each turn was politely and implacably informed that unless I could confirm the vendor information they had on file, they would not be able to assist me.
Five fruitless hours with Dell support over three days, and I gave up. I am returning the Dell and looking to buy from a different company. Love Amazon -- Dell ... not so much.
The price was very competitive with other netbooks I have seen. I chose this model because it had the DDR3 Ram. I figured it would make it a little faster then the competition.
I am not sorry about my decision! I have had this 3 days and it was so easy to set up out of the box. I like the almost full size keyboard and I really like the touchpad. It's very comfortable to type on.
I wanted a Netbook instead of a full size laptop for work. I take care of an alzheimers patient and I wanted something I could take with me easily. I just wanted to be able to throw it in my bag and take it to work...nothing too bulky. It is perfect for my uses...checking email, web surfing, skype calls, and online shopping.
I like the Dell brand vey much and once again, I have not been dissappointed! I also liked the fact that this had starter MS Office on it.
I am anxious to take this to work! Now I can stop trying to web surf on my cell phone!
