This one has a superfast processor - my Picasso pics load up in seconds as opposed to minutes with my previous older laptop. The wireless internet is almost instantaneous. Youtube videos load and play zippity quick, and it plays most dvd's without having to add any special software.
The Windows 7 Home Premium pack is easy to work and I can open several windows of Internet Explorer simultaneously.
Matter of fact, I can pop back and forth between Amazon and Goodreads to copy and post some book reviews with practically no lag time. Netflix and Hulu play with no pauses.
There are plenty of USB ports, and on front, there's this little SUPER CONVENIENT SD card slot. I can pull the SD card from my camera, slide it in the SD slot just under the keyboard, and download all my pics and be done in under a minute!
It's lightweight and the battery lasts around 7 hours with constant usage.
The big pretty girly flower stickers on my lid didn't stop my spouse. When HIS laptop battery ran out in a public place, he just stuffed his briefcase behind my screen to hide the flowers, then happily continued working on MY dell! (Good thing I had my Kindle.)
I elected to keep the laptop because despite the inaccuracies I don't think I will be able to find a better laptop at this price. It works well for the tasks for which it is designed, light computing. Web browsing is quick and responsive but don't expect to play any games on it. I find the screen resolution to be limiting as I expected but using the zoom feature of Google Chrome it is workable.
Expect the normal OEM bloat with free trial and vendor specific applications that will annoy you until they are removed.
Overall this is not a bad laptop, even if it isn't really the machine described on the website.
I love the processing speed (2.4ghz dual-core) and ram 3gbs. i've been playing Sims 3 with everyone up to Supernatural and even though a "Can i run it?" site said i shoudnt be able to, ive been running it all on medium graphics and it looks awesome and runs and loads fast :)
The keyboard is still a little uncomfortable for me but i'm getting used to. besides, im used to a netbook and since i wanted an Upgrade i can deal.!
the touchpad mouse is wonderful. as is the dvd drive.
my only problems were the dell bloatware installed (of course) which was quickly removed.
Also dell's setup of a windows 7. with my sister having a hp and toshiba windows 7 i know that its dell and not windows 7 that had a funky setup of sort. folders werent appearing in the windows 7 Libraries folder unless i restarted my computer (or later found out waiting about 30mins).
i've now learned that its windows 7 fault im having a hard time renaming my computer which is frustrating since i hate seeing "Admin" everywhere but im getting used to that too.
also dell didnt give any cd's and eithier the seller or dell didnt give out a manual. so i had to go to their site and download one which was a hassle of its own. (but im techsavvy and found out the name of my laptop and got them.)
The one last "problem" was/is the battery life. even with running on "Power Saver" and editing it to save my power i still only got 4-6 hours. on the "Dell" power plan i get lucky to get 2-3. so thanks to dimming it making a movie unwatchable and most movies are about two hours, they'll be no or little unplugging and watching a flick. atleast not without having the charger readily available.
Other than that (and thanks to previously having a netbook) I'm in love.! :D
