Ok laptop 11/18/2013
4th Gen Cpu, other than that...nothing stands out.
DVD-RW is part of the laptop.
Touch screen is nice.
Touch pad works well
Keyboard has decent feedback and works well.
Seems well built as there are no bending material spots and the hinges feel solid. Time will tell if it will resist as Dell is advertising.
Hdmi works well audio and video.
Laptop is cooler that others (not come completely cold) because of the low speed CPU.
The Webcam is NOT HD and is NOT a wide screen one.
Monitor is not great (low resolution).
No illuminated keyboard.
It is a magnet for skin grease and fingerprints.
No spill proof keyboard.
DELL included a nice backup and recovery disk creation utility but if you want the nice backup features you have to pay......buuuuuuuuu
Pay attention !!!! When installing Windows 8.1 update make sure first you made your recovery disks and then install all (and I really mean all the updates that can be installed from Windows Update) + update all the drivers to the latest versions possible and only then install the 8.1 update. There are many horror stories on the internet from people that updated to 8.1 and had all kind of issues. Some people installed 8.1 immediately after opening the laptop/desktop and had all kind of errors.
I'll follow up with an update in couple of mont
