This review is from: DELL Laptop Inspiron i15RV-6143BLK Intel Pentium 2127U (1.90 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8
Pros: User friendly with a moderate learning curve. Light-weight Faster than I thought it would be Touch screen is smoother than my tablet
Cons: If it has any, I'll find them in the next few days but none so far.
Other Thoughts: After hearing/reading so many complaints about Windows 8, I hesitated for a while before I bought this machine. I was the same way when Windows first came out. I liked using DOS. But I'm older now and maybe wiser. A couple of notable reviewers rated this machine as best in its price range, which is the most I could afford so I figured that I learned all the other versions of windows without too much trouble (except Vista) so I could do this thing alright. So far it has been an easier transition than from Windows ME to XP. Since I use an Android tablet every day and use a PC desktop more than that, Windows 8 appears to be the ideal compromise. With iGoogle going away in November, I was trying to make something similar to get all my news in one place. The Start section of W8 already does that for me. The Windows store might not have billions of apps but I don't use but a couple of dozen and they have everything I need on the free list. There are always compromises so I'm still adjusting to the start/desktop switching. I hope they clean that part up but it's a minor issue. As far as the machine goes, it's more than I expected all the way around. I got most of my stuff moved in an afternoon then played until late into the night. I gave it the old 'let's see how much stuff we can open before it dies' test and it didn't die. I was originally thinking to add memory, based on my old desktop but this thing didn't bog down with Bible software, a huge memory hog, and Open Office Write open. Then I opened my desktop publisher and Photoshop along with Chrome and five or six apps. It didn't slow down a bit. The screen is crisper than my fairly nice AOC monitor and the colors are true. I got the touchscreen mostly to defend against my granddaughters poking pixels out like they did on my Gateway netbook but it's already got me spoiled. There are better computers on the market but not in this price range. I'm impressed with the Inspiron i15RV-6143. Obviously my wife is, too. She scheming how she can get it from me.
