This review is from: DELL Inspiron 15 (i15N-3910BK) Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6" Windows 8
Pros: Bought this day before Black Friday for several hundred less but with Win 7 installed. Powerful hardware for the price. Easy BIOS upgrade to UEFI through Dell software so now Win 8 ready. More storage than we'll ever use. Intel 4000 video the best I've ever seen on a notebook and we have 5 of them. Dell notebooks also work well with Linux OSs.
Cons: Slow hard drive at 5400 rpm limits performance of this fast system according to WEI. No Windows product key or install disks included so phoned Dell to ask how to upgrade to an SSD. They did not provide a product key and it seems that i would have to buy my own copy of Win 8 if i wanted to install an SSD on my own.
Other Thoughts: Probably our last notebook PC. Not as portable as a tablet because its size and weight. Not as powerful as a desktop PC or as easily upgraded. It seems the laptops are really caught in the middle in terms of functionality.
If we didn't have some proprietary CAD software that requires Windows we probably would switch everything to Linux.
