Pretty Good Value for the Buck
By Robert H.
Well, since Amazon keeps emailing me to write a review, and asking how I like the product, I decided to finally give in. I would have done so sooner, but I think writing a review on a lap top is rather silly until you put it through some paces and worked with it for a while. Now that I have used it, I feel like I actually can know what I am talking about.
This is NOT a perfect system. It is VERY Good, but not perfect. But for the price, it was worthwhile.
Before you should bother caring about a review, I think it is a major help to know how the reviewer uses the product. I spend about 80% of my work days behind a desk, usually for up to 12 hours a day (thanks to my DX Racer Chair!), and am on the computer non stop. Most of my use is very basic, but heavy on the use....spreadsheets, docs, photo editing, skype, email, etc. And also my personal use....I am not a gamer, but chess, free cell, backgammon are very frequent.
1) As some have noted the keyboard is a little weak. What that mans is the actual character covers over the keys are flimsy. The "E" key and the "1" key cover on my keyboard have already come off. They did not break or shatter. They are just not attached very strongly. I could have complained to Dell, but we are talking about a simple fix....a tube of crazy glue, a pin, and a careful minute of time, and volla, problem gone (if you don't know what your doing in this regard DON'T DO IT!!! This is not about slathering super glue all over...its about placing a drop of glue on a pin, touching it to the hook joint on the character cover and then putting it back in place. And if you have no idea what that means, DO NOT EVEN TRY IT). Keyboard still feels a little flimsy, but since I have big hands I tend to be rough on the keyboard, and most of my laptops need a replacement within a year, so no really something worth crying over, as I figure I will just upgrade when I have complete trashed it.
2) For the price, I had a choice of getting the system with either 16 G of Ram and Touchscreen or go for the 128 SSD. I went with the Ram and Touchscreen. I THINK in retrospect I might have been better served to go the other way. But SSD prices at falling (you got Drevo with a 250GB SSD for $50 and Crucial with a 254GB SSD at sub $90), so I may again upgrade in time. Not that the system is exceedingly slow. But it can be a little glitchy with extended use and multiple windows open - but we are talking a second or so of periodic drag, nothing worth crying over for the price. But I admit, the touchscreen is often a nice change of pace when scanning articles and long written pieces.
3) Lack of system indicator lights: Ok, this is a personal thing and is really a personal preference. But on my old HP Pavilion, the Num Lock Key Cap Lock and Wifi and other function keys had a light on them to indicate when they were on. This system has none of it. This is NOT a major headache but is something you can find annoying at first, at least for me, as when there was a problem with IE, my first reflex had become looking to see if the Wifi button was lit.
The rest of my displeasure is limited, and not really system related or product defect. I had my last laptop for years, so I have to give this one some space for the fact I am not entirely used to it yet. It has started to fit and with continued use it is getting better.
There are lots. The screen is crisp and has a great image. The other features it comes with...like the backlit keyboard (an essential if you work on planes and in hotel rooms at night, or while in bed and needing to handle a few matters), the sound system, camera, mic, etc, all work very well. The system is sleek in look and feel. And though I am no fan of Windows 10, I have forced myself to work with it, as one can only insist on Windows 7 for so long before they become a dinosaur. The Touchscreen is cool and actually helpful. As opposed to touching the mousepad, finding the cursor and dragging it across the screen, just touch the scroll bar and swipe. The screen really is very good, because despite my large often messy hands, it cleans up well and does not seem to loose any quality or ability despite my abuse of it.
The frame is a solid build....have had many a laptop drive me nuts because of cheap hinge assemblies that break. High marks on the durability and quality on the externals (with the exception of the keys as noted above).
Since it came with the HDD and the 16GB of Ram, it is slower then my HP with the SSD was. At first this is painful. But in reality for an HDD, it is pretty dang fast (as I was reminded when I pulled out my even older Vaio for a friend to use).
For a little over $600, it was a very good buy in my opinion. So much so that I bought my daughter the I5 15" version last month as a birthday gift (making sure to opt out of the touchscreen and into the SSD). And I think she got the better deal, because the feel on the 15" version is much more comfortable (but I need my big screen...specially when looking at column after column to cross compare data).
You get what you pay for. In this case, you get a little more then that in my opinion. If your shopping for the most computer for the buck, I think this was a great buy ($629 on sale at Amazon Prime when I purchased). It is not perfect. But it is a solid piece of dependable tech.

FAST AND SOLID
I just got my new Dell today and I love it already. It is super fast and solid. I just cannot get over how fast this computer moves and I am looking forward to using it a lot. The backlit keyboard is fantastic one can use the touch screen or mouse pad easily by touching which one you like to use. I encourage anyone looking for a FAST computer with a solid keyboard that this may be your option. The keyboard has a nice feel to it and not cheap. I never have paid this much for a computer before but with the 12 month financing, I thought I would give it a try and I am glad that I did because I use my laptop constantly. If there are any problems, I will post another review.
