2 out of 5 eggsWould have been a wonderful laptop if it charged.

Pros: Speedy machine, great specs overall and its a breeze to use.
- Fast in general
-Nice feeling keyboard
-Decent camera
-nice touchpad with useful gestures, actually functions nicely with Windows 8.1

Cons: Well for starters, the battery isn't charging. The screen also has a decent amount of glare but I don't find it much of an issue.

Other Thoughts: When I first got the laptop it was able to charge for the first few hours. Then I started to receive a message from windows stating that it could not identify the charger. Ok, so the first guess would be a faulty charger but I've used a different charger and a different battery but to no success. My next step was to update the BIOS because the previous BIOS read it as an unknown AC adapter. Even after updating I still have the same issue. I'm going to have to return this or send this to dell for a fix because this is most certainly not a problem on my end. Something is wrong with the laptop out of the box itself.

2 out of 5 eggsGood and Bad

Pros: Starts up quickly. Loads apps quickly,
Runs fast no matter how much I am doing on it.
Long lasting battery.

Cons: Speakers need to be at max volume to hear.
Mouse pad setup causes right clicks when pressing left button.
Can NOT turn off "tap" on mouse pad. It shows as "off", but still does it.
Need to keep a USB mouse with me just in case the mouse pad turns off. Has done several times and makes it impossible to do anything since no touchscreen.

5 out of 5 eggsSomething for everyone

Pros: Thin
Dell Keyboard.
Screen looks good!
Boots pretty fast for a 5400rpm harddrive due to windows 8.1 fast boot.
This laptop packs quite a nice punch with its 4th gen haswell core i5. I personally have an i5 3210m in my laptop (2.5-3.1ghz) which sucks double the power and only scores 20 more points in cinebench r15.
i5 4010u: 236
i5 3210m: 256
Very power efficient My girlfriend is able to do 3 sometimes 4 rounds of League of legends before we need to plug it in (about 2 hours-3 hours) otherwise we are seeing as much as 4-6 hours for basic web browsing and paper writing. It is very pleasant to hold and feels very solid. Shiny finish on the sides and a pleasant texture for grip. The integrated graphics are a decent step up in what they are capeable of for this laptop HOWEVER

Cons: 1 stick of 8gb of ram. This is a boost to the average user who is not too worried about graphics output. 1 stick of 8gb of ram will mean a bit less power consumption which adds to more battery life, but since it is not dual channel setup, the integrated graphics take a hit in performance by restricting the memory bus to 64 bit instead of 128. This is not a gaming laptop though so this shouldnt be a bother to most people. My gf is still able to play league with 40-80fps on med high settings (minor stutters).
3 cell battery. I WOULD LOVE to see how long this thing would last if it had a 6 cell battery. Still gets has good battery life and the 3 cell allows this to be fairly lightweight.
Speakers are a little quiet.

Other Thoughts: For an i5 laptop from dell with 8gb of ram and 1 tb of storage, this is a great deal. Highly recommended for someone who wants a fast laptop with decent battery life, and basic graphics output.
Hope this is helpful for people!
