5.0 out of 5 stars A couple of tweaks here and there but overall and awesome laptop., April 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dell Inspiron i14RN-1227BK 14-Inch Laptop (Diamond Black) (Personal Computers)
Before choosing this laptop I researched the other options in amazon and other websites and I believe this one has the best value for the price.

A few things to note on it's favor:

- Did not come dead on arrival (DOA).
- Windows Installation was fast.
- Can run entertainment apps / casual and social gaming perfectly.
- I love the idea of being able to use different covers (I have not tried it yet).
- The trackpad's surface is one of the best I have used so far.
- The battery holds it's charge as described and intended.
- The internal speakers have great power, enough to watch a video in a medium-size living room without plugging other speakers.
- Wireless adapter is pretty strong, it can list-down wireless points that my desktop adapter can't.

Some downsides:

- Comes with the already-known Bloatware, simply uninstall all those pesky useless programs/games/antivirus.
- After modifying the mouse / trackpad settings I got a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) STOP Error: 0x000009f - DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (This problem occurs because of a race condition between two bus resets.). However, after I updated Windows 7 everything seems to be in order now.
- It's glossy, expect a lot of fingerprints on it.
- Multi-gesture trackpad feature doesn't work 100%, it seems not to be so accurate.
- The Trackpad can get warm when running process-extensive software or features but not to a point it is uncomfortable.

I have yet to find anything that ruins my experience, reason why I scored the laptop a 5. I will update this review in case it's necessary and let you know.
