a bit disappointed 08/07/2012
Laptop has a nice finish and a good looking screen. A little more bleedthru from the backlight than I like normally but it is what it is for the price.
The laptop does NOT come with gigabit ethernet. At least mine didn't. This is a problem with this series from Dell. I've been to many stores and finding info on what it actually has is infuriatingly difficult. More of the 15.6" models have it, the 14" models almost never do. I bought one of these cause Newegg listed it as GB ethernet so I took a chance and lost. I had to take a couple Eggs off of this laptop not only because of the listing on the website being incorrect but COME ON! why would any laptop come with only 10/100 in this day and age??!?
The core i3 CPU's don't turbo boost like the i5's and above do. This means the redraw when opening and closing windows in Win7 isn't smooth. It is a budget laptop tho so it is what it is.
