3 out of 5 eggsDecent for a refurb

Pros: Nice and sleek looking. Good hardware for the price. Mine actually came with 8gb and an ATi dedicated card. It was either a mistake in spec listing or I just got lucky.

The 32gb mSATA ssd is a nice piece. I installed Linux Mint 15 on it. Runs great.

Very little flex on the keyboard. The speakers are made by Skull Candy. The sound quality is decent. As expected for a laptop.

500gb is plenty for storage. In terms of noise. Mine is fine. No loud whining nor clicking noise. That would be a sign of a possible bad drive.

There is still an one year warranty.

Cons: The ATI card is power hungry and gets hot. Its worse under Linux because of bad drivers. If you are using Linux like me, turn off the dedicated card. It'll cut your battery life in a matter of minutes and overheat.

Wifi is a little iffy in Linux but well enough for Windows. Its a driver issue.

Touchpad is subpar. Its erratic. Sometimes I can't double tap to 'click'. Poor sensitivity.

I never expected the battery life to last longer than 3 hours because of the hardware packed in it. Fully charged, mine can go ~2.5 hours.

Other Thoughts: Wifi is a little iffy in Linux. Sometimes, it won't detect my network. Most of the time is works with no problems. Its a little inconsistent.

Windows 8 runs fine but the tile system is unnecessary for a nontouch screen device. Its like an annoying web in front of my face. Its my own opinion. Some like Windows 8, I don't. Go with what you like.

2 out of 5 eggsNever buy a Dell product again

Pros: - Beautiful design for an entry-level laptop
- Newegg has great customer service, they send a replacement right away for my issue.

Cons: - IRST Caching using the mSata SSD is not configured by default. I have to setup it, and it's not easy for non-technical customers.
- Hard drive rotating noise (or similar) can be heard from 3ft. I actually got the same issue with my Dell Inspiron 620 Desktop, which Dell couldn't fix it, and I had to live with it :-<
- Battery life is approx. 3 hours. I think the battery is somewhat 49W, not the 65W, and this is not mentioned in the product details

Other Thoughts: Have ordered and used 1 Dell Inspiron 620, 2 Dell Inspiron 14z.

Will never by any Dell product again. I do not want to live with such a noise from my PC or laptop
