    Functionality Sacrificed On The Alter Of Fashion

    What I like: + High spec components + the backlit keyboard option + separate keypad + the ability to max to 8gb of ram + the SDD / hdd drive combo + a power light on the mains plug What I dislike: - Most of the ports are on the side panels and NOT on the rear panel - SD port on the front panel and not on the side panel - The hard disk, battery, and wireless led lights on the front panel (not easy to see down there guys!) - Touch pad for mouse less sensitive than previous 6yrs old model - Back surface of screen seems cheaper and more flexible than previous 6yrs old model - Black surface shows up finger prints more than silver. - Hexagonal patterning on black surfaces collects dirt and dust more easily than if it was smooth - Heat dissipation port on the side panel and NOT on the rear panel - The way the website customisation options have changed to give less access to hardware components - No Linux option on website customisation With a proper design this laptop would score much higher.

    I'm currently dual booting Ubuntu/Gnome3 and Windows 8 on this machine. Couldn't be happier! Good hardware, great build quality, and Dell customer service has been excellent when required. I did have a couple of issues with it up front after it was shipped, but they had it all fixed and back to good within a few days. Audio is excellent (although I'm still working on the drivers for Linux...wish Dell would provide these!!!!) Display is excellent - I LOVE the 17.3" screen. Processor and memory are great out of the box. I am planning to upgrade my memory but factory performance yields no complaints for the price, the 3rd gen i5 is a beast! I can only say that I wish there was a backlit keyboard option actually available for this model instead of solely for the 5720SE. But that's my only real gripe and it's trivial at best. Overall - I recommend this system to novices and the techies out there. There's better out there sure, but price for value in this package is really hard to beat in my opinion.

    I am suprised at the performance, runs fast and stays cool. Nice Laptop and not to heavy for a 17" machine. Not a lot of bloatware installed, no problems removing the stuff ya dont want or need. Generation 3, I7 CPU is sweet. All in all comes with some nice features. Great delivery time shipped friday, got it saturday. So far I am very pleased with this laptop. If your looking for a nice laptop and dont want to spend a small fortune on a gamming rig, this could be the system for you. I think I will invest in a smaller 7200 RPM hard drive in the near future Pro's. Fast, Cool Running, Nice Features. Not to heavy. Very nice system. Not a lot of bloatware installed. Cons. Hard Drive is only 5400 RPM Dell should offer a 7200 RPM hard drive. Running bench test everything hits the mark but the hard drive, its not bad but would be better with a 7200 RPM drive. Dell needs to include a windows 7 disk, hate restore partitions. Other than that this is a sweet machine for the price.

    Laptop is beautiful, sleek, and fast. The screen resolution is nice and sharp. I love that the keyboard can light up too. I had issues with the DVD drive. It would light up but the drive was not detected by the system. While on hold with Dell support, I plugged in my smartphone to recharge and miraculously, the drive became detectable! Next issue is the WiFi. It is not very reliable. I have to restart the computer for it to reconnect, happens a few times a week. I have several other devices and computers and have not had so much trouble with WiFi connection stability before. Also, when I boot the system, I often get a black screen and have to reboot. I wonder if Windows 8 isn't the problem. I was also disappointed that a lot of programs like Quicktime and my Sims 3 game, (reason I decided to go with a high performance computer) are not yet compatible with Windows 8. I should have done my homework first, so check your compatibility for programs before buying. Am sorely tempted to downgrade to Windows 7.

    This is a terrific laptop, very fast and with an absolutely stunning display. It's actually faster than my 1st generation I7 920 desktop for rendering video, etc. I'm very pleased with it. Pros: - 25 second boot time from pressing the power button to disappearance of the little 'busy'circle - Fast processing speed. The first laptop I've owned that feels like a fast desktop. - The display has to be seen to be appreciated. - Beautiful design, looks great. - Keyboard is a pleasure to use and back-lit. - Very reasonable price for this kind of power and display. Comparable to my friends Powerbook at 1/2 the price. Cons: - Weight, but to get a laptop this size that is light involves lots more bucks and some compromises. - 5400RPM hard drive. Hardware-wise, this is the only sub-par component. No 7200RPM option. Not a show-stopper, but stick a 7200 in this and it's perfect. - '15-in-one' card reader does not take CF, which of course is what my DSLR uses. Grrrr. - My wife like this better than her 2-month old Dell 15Z and wants one.

    Good Hardware - Bad Software

    I bought the 17R SE with Core I7 and hardware is very strong. Cons are slow hard drive and small print on keys but the pros make up for this. 1080P resolution on the 17.3 inch screen is untouchable for the money. My main problem has been software. McAfee has been a disaster as it caused Action Center messages constantly even though McAfee said everything was "green", ON, and protected. I had to uninstall McAfee and thereafter all Java scripts stopped working in IE10. Looked at Windows Firewall and all looked good, made sure scripts and script applets were all enabled in options,security tab of IE10 - all good but no luck. Loaded Chrome and all works so firewall not the problem. Reloaded Java 7 Release 9 and finally Release 10 (beta) - same thing. Even Java site can not find Java on IE10 even though program manager has both 32 bit and 64bit versions and yet same proceedure on Java Chrome says all is good. IE10 can not be reloaded or fixed so I have a permanently disabled IE10 due to Dell's incompatible software. Exasperating!

    I have this laptop for about 1 and half months. I was searching for a 3D laptop so my eyes got into this laptop.. I basically use this laptop for playing games and watching movies.. I would like to share a few pros and cons about this laptop. Pros:[:-)] 1. Display is good as it has a full hd screen. 2. Sound quality is also good. 3. Good for gaming with the nvdia GT650M 3D gpu. 4. All the usb ports are 3.0 .. Cons:[:-(] 1. Battery back up is not soo good! It gives max 2 hrs.. 2. A bit bulky.. 3. This product does not include a video player for watching 3D movies.. 4. Heats up very fast while playing games!! I would like if dell can give a video player for paying 3D movies.. And I would like to know if i can change the back lid of laptop as it belongs to the inspiron series!! I would like to change the back lid with other designs and colours!! Overall it is a satisfactory product if some one wants a desktop replacement and for playing games!!

    My girlfriend asked me to take a look at her new dell 17r.. it wouldnt boot. The bios had lost its boot menu. It turns out that the chipset drivers for windows 8, either arent compatible with the laptop motherboard/chipset, or the installation got interrupted. A dell technician was sent to her home, replaced the motherboard.. and a week later.. the same problem came back on its own. This is a very nice laptop.. I just think windows 8 has some driver issues. I would recommend that a different OS, or motherboard be used in this laptop. Unless the drivers are debugged. We had a hard time with certain employees, to replace the laptop/refund. warranty still valid. Finally we found a nice employee named Mon.. In financial services.. and he let us return it with a full refund. Thanks buddy!! should be a manager! It took some hardship, but Dell finally pulled through for us. And we will get the replacement laptop through dell since they helped us out.

    First of all, I am very pleased with the Dell computers and laptops I have owned and wouldn't even consider buying another brand. I am very pleased with my new laptop...still trying to get used to Windows 8. This laptop is so much faster to boot up than the Inspiron 1525 I had that still works fine. What made me purchase this particular model was the speed and hard drive capacity. I can run multiple programs at the same time. The only problems I have run into are: 1. I have received approximately 6 notices that my pc ran into a problem and needed to shut down. I have sent the report for each instance. Hopefully, this will be corrected. 2. I had to make the touch pad inoperable because my hand would touch it and cause something to open. 3. I am having issues with the mouse. When I'm on a website and click on the back arrow to go back to a previous screen, it sometimes takes me back two screens. I would highly recommend this laptop. =)

    Inspiron 17R Special Edition - Brilliant

    Customer review by rc1000

    by rc1000

    This computer is brilliant. It replaced a three year old laptop and the change is very noticeable. The mSata drive makes a huge difference with very fast boot times. The 2TB of disk storage is superb. The screen is brilliant and great for general use (I can easily have two Word documents side by side) as well as movies. The system is fast and has 4 x USB ports as well as HDMI, Ethernet. Full size keyboard is great to use (although having a keypad means the keyboard is not in the centre of the screen). The face recognition login takes some getting used to, but can be very handy (and it can be turned off if not required). The weakest point is the battery, which normally gives about two hours (but this is not a problem for me, as I mainly use it plugged in on the desk). This is also a large laptop which would make a larger laptop to take on travel (but I use my tablet for travelling). I love this laptop and highly recommend it.
