I am in love.
This is the first Inspiron I have purchased in a long time.
School work was near perfect, I could have 20 tabs open while researching/writing papers, as well as extremely quick responses during online homework programs such as Pearson Connect, etc.Battery life is expected to be bad due to the more powerful components of the PC.
I do not throw my laptop around, I have not stepped on it, or sat on it.
As much as I love the performance of this computer and appreciated how well it's worked out for me and still continues to do so ( kind of) I cannot recommend this to anyone who is looking for a long term computer.
This computer was used in the house and was not dropped or abused.
I can use the laptop when I connect to another monitor, but it is useless on its own.Apparently, the problem is a connection issue.
Mind-boggling that a new laptop would have a bad motherboard in less than two years and the warranty apparently will not cover it.I've bought my last Dell.
I'm havin' a few problems with my laptop that may have to do with updatin' it.
I've hadn't this laptop for about a year now and this will be the second time it's crashed to the point of needing a warranty repair (you have to pay shipping roughly $50).
