Nice laptop, good price
Pros: Good speed, startup, and connectivity.
Cons: Windows 8 without touch screen somewhat difficult to use, with only cosmetic difference from Windows 7 interface.
Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: In general the specs are good for a machine of this price.
Cons: At startup, the fan immediately goes to full speed. It sounds like an airplane taking off. Loudest fan noise I have ever heard from a laptop. The big problem is that it never slows down. On line comments indicate that Dell has a bug in the design that forces the fan to run at 100% all the time and there is no fix available. My customer refuses to use these machines because of the noise. I have seen over 2,000 laptops in our shop in the last year. These are the noisiest machines by far - much louder than Alienware laptops running with the fan at 100% for example.
Other Thoughts: I told New Egg the noise was unacceptable and sent it back. They said they could not offer a refund but they could replace the units ( I have purchased two of them). The replacement units are even louder and also run 100% all the time. Again New Egg is suggesting a replacement. This is the first time that I have had a problem with New Egg products. This is specifically a problem with this specific model from Dell. I just wish New Egg was more understanding.
