I love this computer. Dell did a great job. it is fast and reliable. And even better, it gives you the option to not install all the bloatware that usually comes with new computers.

Excellent laptop, laptop starts up fast, 4GB of ram is plenty for a student in college or home, I3 processor is great for the price, 500 GB hard drive is plenty for anyone, and 5400 RPM keeps the battery life going longer. Laptop did come with unnecessary software, but takes 5 mins to remove. Laptop is gorgeous looking but does attract finger prints. Would recommended to a student or for use at home.

Update: Laptop still is going very strong. Only downside is part of the letter came off on the N key...will replace the keyboard within the next year.

I stalked this particular laptop on dell's website for a few days. Compact, fast, cool. Everything I needed to help myself become a digital dj. Then I found it on amazon for about 80 dollars less? It only took me about 2 seconds to think about it before I hit the "add to cart" button. This thing is fly.

The only thing I can say is that the shift button is a little smaller so sometimes I press the enter button instead, and the track pad is hard to tell from the surrounding area of the rest of the computer..so you think you're all set to scroll the crap out of something and nothing happens..haha. These are just silly things compared to how happy I am.

I have owned several laptops ranging from high end Sony Vaio, to heavily discounted HPs, and I've never had any issue with any of them. Also, beware of Dell's customer service, they are not helpful at all. The product page states that the laptop has a 1 year hardware warranty but they are trying to make me purchase a $100 hardware warranty for a year. This is the second bad experience with Dell's customer service, so I suggest stay away from Dell until they do something about their customer service.

I bought this for my wife. she's not a power user by any means but she loves it. mostly web surfing, email and maybe a little photo editing with photoshop elements 7. she like the small size. i have a 17" dell and prefer the bigger screen. she likes the light portability of the 14". to each their own.
The price on amazon was somewhat better than the dell site and with free shipping and no tax...this was the place to buy.

I loved the graphics on this computer and it was quick loading the pages on the internet. I didn't realize it came with a built in Web Cam. But I was only able to use this compter for a total of 4 hours before the battery went dead. I had it connected to the power cable but it would not charge. We even tried taking the battery out and just running the computer with the power cable but it would not power on this way.
I was very disapointed by the unablility to charge the battery. Was suppose to be my Birthday Present to me.
I returned the computer back to Amazon as unusable and have choosen a different brand.

Six month after we purchased this dell laptop, the display stopped working. Even before the display broke down, this computer is inferior compared to my other entry level Toshiba laptop in many aspects. For example, this dell laptop often failed to wake up after power down. But it turns out the dell customer service or customer non-service is the worst problem. The display issue is under warranty, but I got transferred around five times in three calls. Each time they took my information and then transfer me to someone else. Then two times the supposed right person will drop the call after lengthy questions. I will never buy a dell product again.

Do not recommend this laptop at all!!!
From the day of purchasing, within the first year, this machine was sent 3 times to the service for repair. From time to time was giving a horrible noise without any reason. In addition to this, it was very slow and finally after 14 month of using it just completely broke down!
This laptop looked nice but it gave me lots of troubles within those 14 months!
Newer will buy DELL again!!!

Jozef, IL
