The excellent keyboard and touchpad are my main reasons for choosing this laptop over a comparable tablet. It's thin, quiet, and comfortable to lug around between public transit, work, and class. It handles Windows 8 fluidly.
Glossy screen reflects any light source behind you. Not easy to dismantle and change components if that's how you like to treat your new electronics. Dell company is run by neocons.
The port covers are a nice feature for a mobile user. If you need to plug stuff in, buy a desktop. Everything I use away from my desk connects fine with bluetooth or wifi.
I did swap the 500GB HDD for the 128GB Samsung SSD I had recently put in the larger laptop that this Dell replaced -- I highly recommend for performance and battery life.
Takes a week to acclimate to using the Fn key to utilize Home/End/PgUp/PgDn.
