    • A. Windows 8.1 is already pre-installed. If you happen to get an older model with Windows 8.0 (unlikely) - you get a free 8.1 download upgrade from teh Windows Online Store.

    • A. YES! Call Dell Tech support to help with that. Will need to have internet connection because they will have access to your computer (with your permission) to set everything up for you! Will take about 3 to 4 hours to complete process. (depending on internet speed) Upgrade to 8.1 rewrites the computer program.

    • A. This question has been answered (basically), but the answer should have noted that it is possible to get an HDMI to VGA interface if your projector has only VGA input. So... No this laptop does not have a VGA port for connecting a projector, but you can use the HDMI output even if you need VGA input to the projector.

    okay, I had to buy me another laptop because I stepped on my Dell Studio 17 and the hinge broke. I was looking for the best deal so I shopped all the major laptop dealers... I came across this dell 15 at my local walmart. I have had now two weeks. it by far is the best bang for the buck. it comes with i3 intel chip and 6 Ram with 500 HD. the accessories are incredible... SD card reader, camera, windows 8, plenty of USB ports. Watching videos in HD is awesome. It took me a while to get used to windows 8, but not I got down pat. I highly recommend this laptop to anyone who is looking for a good laptop for a fantastic price... thanks for reading my review...

    I was looking into getting a mac book pro but after thought i really couldn't afford it! I was in Walmart and happened to walk by it and the sleek textured design caught my eye, it is so thin and nice it is definitely not going out of style any time soon! It is super affordable and Walmart has the best deal yet! For 6gb you cant get better than that. The screen is a perfect size for movies and much more. The program is Windows 8, a lot of people have been complaining on reviews but dell provides a walk through and shows every little detail on how to work it! I was a pro with Windows 8 on my second day of the laptop!! Also there is no light underneath the keyboard but the laptop screen shines right on it so no worries. This is definitely a great alternative for a mac book and maybe even better for me! Only reason why i gave this laptop 4 out of 5 stars is because the clicker is so loud, it sounds cheap, but other than that it is great quality.

    It's so much faster than XP, but right now, I'm a bit frustrated with it. There are virtually no directions on how to "get" anywhere. I have downloaded Windows 8 for Dummies which comes free, but am still trying to find the time to read it. It's been weeks of trial and error, learning how to "favorite" an item and then learning where it is! I don't like not having the time in the lower right hand corner. I don't like that I can't copy or print a selection except in Word. I don't like that I can't print 2 pages of a book on one page. I don't like that when the system falls asleep I lose my music that I want to leave ON for background! All these were offered on XP. Where'd they go? This is an improvement? I don't like that all you have to do is "hover" the curser over some site, and soon you're there without ever having "clicked" on it. It will take a lot of getting used to and right now I am not really happy. "Microsoft Word" used to be programmed on computers, now you have to go out and buy it!

    loving this new laptop so far, but please avoid the conundrum i stumbled into from entering my gmail address as my primary user account email. with Windows 8, many apps WILL NOT WORK (including the MicroSoft Store) when you enter anything other than a MicroSoft email (outlook/hotmail). trying to go back and change it IS NOT EASY if you're not proficient with Win8. other than that little snag... i love this laptop! great specs for a great price! waiting for my copy of "WINDOWS 8 FOR DUMMIES" to arrive from amazon so i can get a better feel for what this machine is capable of. it looks amazing! very thin (under 1" when closed). the textured outer-shell feels sturdy and not cheap. the touchpad buttons don't seem to be too loud (contrary to what i've read in other reviews here.) having multiple 3.0 usb ports is a BIG bonus as i plan to run multiple webcams simultaneously for a podcast. the intel core i3-3227u processor should be able to handle that without any issues. if any problems arise, i will come back and edit this review... but so far I AM DIGGING THIS LAPTOP!

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I was very sceptical about buying this computer after reading the reviews. I have always believed that the reviews were always written by employees or competitors. I am just your normal end user with a little knowledge of computers. I have always purchased HP's in the past and this computer smokes them in performance and quality. This computer is a great buy for the price. High RAM, good processor, hard drive etc...Let me address what people keep posting on these reviews. Windows 8 complaints. I come from using windows 7 and this was the first time I saw windows 8 and I love it. Not sure why people are complaining. It reminds me of a phone where you download your own apps and you still have your normal desktop too. Flimsy design complaints. Its a slim design computer compared to some but its fine. You should never lift a computer by its screen. lol Hope this helps someone who has doubts.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how I managed to get this up and running. Windows 8 still frustrates me though, but it's supposed to be faster and more secure so I'm going with it. After trying to change the settings so the computer didn't go into hibernation mode after a few minutes and having my tech savy kids help me, I finally gave in and called Dell. After over an hour and having a tech remote in to my machine he said the problem was fixed and he also did some upgrades that were supposed to make my computer faster. Well after logging onto Pandora and thinking I'd be able to listen to music without my computer going into hibernation, it did it again. It is so annoying to have to type in my password every few minutes as I have a recipe up or am reading an article. Dell said they would be calling in a few days to see how things are going and I will be giving them an earful. This is a ridiculous feature with Windows 8! Other than that the laptop itself has been working fine and is much faster than my old Toshiba was.

    After owning several MacBook's I decided I wanted something different and more affordable. I had previously checked this computer out at my local Wal Mart and was impressed with its design and quality. It felt and looked more expensive and similarly priced HP's and it had better specifications. I've had this computer for a day now and it has been flawless. The screen is bright and crisp, the processor is perfect for browsing the web and viewing videos on YouTube, lots of storage, it's lightweight for it's size and it doesn't feel like a cheap laptop even though it is. This is my first Dell laptop and I'm extremely impressed. I've always owned Dell desktops and they have always been workhorses and this laptop is no exception. I would recommend this product to anybody who is looking for a good computer who wants the most features for the least amount of money.

    For the money, this is a fabulous laptop! It can be a little frustrating while trying to get adjusted to Windows 8, but once you learn it you will like it! It would be better with a touchscreen, but still okay otherwise. If you purchase this laptop, it DOES have a scroll on the mouse pad, you must go into your settings and turn it on. I've read so many reviews where people have said there is not a scroll bar, yes, there is, and it works great, turn it on! Also, instead of clicking the left mouse button, all you do is tap the mouse pad, you don't have to actually click the left mouse button any longer. Hope this helps, I wanted to share a few little things I learned about it. Oh, one more thing that may help you, Windows Defender is already installed on your laptop, unistall McAfee and then you will be able to turn on Windows Defender.

    So I am of a younger category. I previously owned a Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5518, it was a okay computer got the job done. I primarily use my laptop for Windows Office, being a high school student can get rough, and also for my Pre-Med/Pre-College courses. This laptop has flawless speed. The value is excellent. I have nothing to complain about. To people skeptical of Windows 8 don't be, it is not that hard to set up DELL WALKS YOU ALL THROUGH IT. In my house, we love electronics, and I have been dealing with computers 10 years of my life. This is by far the most flawless computer I ever seen. It beats out my neighbor's HP Envy 17.3 W/ AMD A6 Chip. If you can find this product you should go for it, the price point is amazing. And you should go with Walmart's 28 dollar warranty for 2 years covers everything except theft and losing it! Love my choice going with Dell and Walmart!

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    Purchased another Dell with 4GB Memory and 500GB Hard Drive from another site. Ran across this with basically the same features but with 6GB Memory for the same price. Returned the other one. Soon after setup I downloaded Windows 8.1 upgrade (free). It took awhile to learn the navigation features of 8.1 but everyday, it gets much simpler. I might add that the download took over 24 hrs. to complete. I read many reviews about the Windows 8.1 download and the reviews indicated it could take anywhere from a couple of hours to several hours. So I decided to be patient. I can't imagine that this is the norm but it could of been a result of my setup, router, modem and etc. It fits our needs perfectly, some movies, web surfing, e-mails and etc. I just retired and every morning I enjoy a cup of Joe and my new computer. RECOMMEND.
