I just received this today so I may post a follow up review later.

My first impression was that it was huge. It's thicker and heavier than I expected but for the price point it's to be expected. I don't plan to travel too often with it so it's not a huge concern to me. Setup with windows 8 is unbelievably simple and makes it quick to get up and running. I'm not a fan of the new Metro start screen. I tried to customize it but it still just took up way too much space for my liking. So I ended up downloading a free app, called classic shell that brought back the start menu functionality for me. I think the laptop (which is what we are actually reviewing here - not windows 8) is quite peppy and the specs are more than adequate for any average user. If you primarily use your computer for homework, email, web surfing, etc this will be great. If you're a heavy gamer you probably want something else.

For the first month I had the computer it seemed to work fine. I did not like Windows 8. Instead of being easier to use, it was confusing. Any program, now called app. required going into several screens instead of the single start menu. There is no area, button, etc. to close these apps. The BIGGEST problem I had was at week five, The computer died. I was able to get into the bios and got several error messages. Called Dell, only to be told the motherboard and the hard drive were dead and would have to be replaced.

The computer I had before the Dell, an HP, it's motherboard died after 6 months. I had to send it to HP to get it fixed. Who ever fixed it hacked my computer and I spent almost a year getting that straightened out. Two years after it was "fixed" it went completely haywire and died for good. My warranty had run out. It would cost less to buy a new computer than get it fixed yet again. Basically the $1200 I paid for it was a total waste. What happened to QUALITY products? Where is the pride in making a solid, well working computer?

I teach how to use computers, how to upgrade computers, and I have worked as a computer tech to help others with computer problems and questions. Until three years ago I have never seen such sloppy, untrained "professions" who build computers and create software. In my opinion to other computer buyers, don't spend more than $500 for any computer because chances are good there will be major problems with it.

This it is my second, after I returned the first one with the same issue. The size, weight and Windows 8 Operating System are fine. However, they have a defect in the sensitivity of the mouse. It causes the curser to skip all over the place. You will be typing an email and it will suddenly skip to the middle of another sentence or paragraph or even better delete the document or email all together. It is all random and at first I thought it was me, then maybe just a weird defect. I sent the brand new Laptop back to Amazon, who promptly sent me another new one. The same thing started again after about 2 weeks. I contacted Dell support, in India. After about 30 minutes on the phone and remote access to remedy the issue they told me that I would need to purchase a $289 "Software Warranty" to correct the problem. I was told I must have downloaded something that corrupted the Mouse File. Seriously, are you kidding! On both brand new laptops? I had not even put my personal documents on the system yet. And certainly did not download anything. All I had done was surf the net on some basic websites like Amazon and Target!
I have returned the second one and was refunded my money. I ordered a Samsung Chromebook, $150 dollars cheaper and looks like it is going to be a much better laptop. Do not purchase this item. I have no idea how it got good reviews? If it had not happened with two different new laptops I could have understood but this is definitely a defect in the computer.

First impressions:
Feels lighter than I expected. I'd be okay with it having been slightly heavier if it would have made it feel like a higher quality machine; feels UBER plasticky.

One thing I have an issue with--and I will bring this up to Amazon--is that the ad says it's a 2.6 processor, yet the box says 2.2. That's extremely frustrating considering the processor is a primary component I was strongly considering in whatever pc purchase I made.

Keyboard is responsive with hand placement being pretty much where I like it. The ctrl key isn't where I'm used to but, no big deal. As a first time Windows 8 user, so far so good. I actually like it.

I do like the screen size; can't go wrong with the large display. Perhaps it just seems large to me since my Mac Air is 13 inches.

Overall I understand that we spent $400-ish, not $800+, for this computer so i'm fairly satisfied. I don't know how Amazon will resolve the mistake they made by advertising this machine with the incorrect processor power. Other than that, I think i'll enjoy this computer

UPDATE: Amazon was more than willing to exchange the pc for me. Overall this purchase is definitely a worthwhile one.
