We've been long-time Dell users and have a number of Dell Systems. it's going to be easier in the future just to switch back over to HP or Toshibia or some other manufacturer with better product reliability, because Dell as failed with this. And now trying to get it replaced is something started in Oct, and yet here in Mid-Nov we can't get an estimated shipping date. Totally uancceptable.
I was also about ready to get a new powerhouse Dell desktop, but I'll buy that from a manufacturer with more reliable products too.
Eventually they substituted a refurbished unit for the new one I ordered and would not offer me any discount (go figure). Just "sorry." Gee, thanks. They made no attempt whatsoever to even make a gesture of compensation for the many, many hours of time I wasted trying to get their $1000+ computer to work. Even though I ended up with a refurbished unit.
On that unit the DVD drive never worked and I had to have it replaced. The video card still malfunctions frequently but they can not come up with a fix other than a replacement. I am so tired of dealing with their support, that I am just sucking it up and dealing with a very sub-par performance.
Very glitchy computer, awful support. Very, very sorry I bought a Dell.
This is my first Dell, before this I've had HP for the last 10 years with no issues. My next system will be an HP.
The laptop has a nice look to it, though I still don't really understand the strip of leather on the cover. The keys are pretty quiet and comfortable, and have a back light which is absolutely crucial if you're using the laptop in low light settings. The one main issue that I see other reviewers already touched on is the overheating. One major design fault of this laptop is the placement of a single vent on the back left corner of the laptop, which when opened, is mostly covered thanks to the hinged design. This does cause the laptop to get pretty hot. However, there is a partial fix to this. The link provided ([...]) updates one of the drivers (I'm not a computer geek, so I can't really be more specific, sorry!), which definitely reduced the overheating issue. Still, the laptop can get pretty warm, and somewhat uncomfortable to use on your lap. Aside from that, I think this has been a great laptop for me. I took it through extremes, living in Dominica for two years. I had an ant somehow find it's way into the laptop BEHIND the covering on the screen. That was pretty annoying, and I had to take the cover off to get the ant out. I've dropped it several times, including about an hour ago (oops), and haven't had any damage to it, besides a couple scratches on the case. Pretty sturdy if you ask me. The thing still works like a charm. Battery life when I got it, set to the power saver setting, lasted a good 5-6 hours. After 3 years, I can only get about 2.5-3 hours on power saver off the power supply, but I don't think that's too bad. The laptop is quick to respond, starts up in about a minute's time.Read more ›
