5 out of 5 eggsExcellent deal

Pros: I purchased this laptop as my primary workstation for my software engineering consulting business. What originally caught my eye was the high amount of memory (16 GB), the i7 processor, and a standalone video card. I was also attracted to the sleek finish and relatively lightweight design. While not as light as a Macbook, it's much lighter than previous Inspirons, and considerably lighter than my Lenovo ThinkPad. The 15.6 inch display is big enough for me to work comfortably, and when I plug into a monitor, the resolution goes to 1920x1080 and looks even better.

What I most most concerned about when purchasing this laptop was Windows 8.1. I love Windows 7, and have generally not found Windows 8 to be a suitable environment for doing real work. But, Windows 8 has improved power management and other internal features that make it worth having, so I improvised and installed StarDock Start8 and ModernMix, which allow you to fully boot to the Windows 7 type desktop while still having access to the Windows 8 feature set. Once I did this, I started enjoying the laptop's speed and battery life (6-8 hours). I installed a VirtualBox running Linux Mint, and it looks great. It's a sleek laptop powerful and big enough to get work done, but light enough to travel with.

Cons: The worst thing about the laptop is that it took some time for me to get it setup to a point where I was really thrilled with it. I really don't like the Windows 8 start screen with all of the tiles, most of which are links to news or websites. I deleted pretty much all of the Dell software that came with it and uninstalled everything that I recognized as bloatware I didn't want or need.

Other Thoughts: The hardware specs of this computer make it a powerful workstation but not necessarily a gaming computer. While it does have a standalone video card, it's probably not really suited for running graphics intensive games. It may be possible to update the video card if that is what you are looking for. The computer is overkill if you don't do much more than surf the web.

4 out of 5 eggsCome on Microsoft, you can do better!

Pros: Very thin, lightweight and has a good display.

Cons: Windows 8.1 is not impressive. There was a problem with the laptop going into Sleep mode properly. I found lots of complaints about this online but no good fixes. I finally went to an older version of the display driver and it started working properly. It took many hours to arrive at this non-optimal "fix".
