I like this laptop for home use because it is 17" wide and easy to setup out of the box. I've had good success with Dell over the last 10 years, so I'm deterred by the Dell brand. I wouldn't try to use this laptop to tote back and forth to work or any travel - due to the size.

I bought this laptop in order to write a book. It has all the storage space that I need to keep track of my research materials and text. It has performed perfectly for me. I also use it for gaming. No problems so far, and I have had it for about a month and use it daily. I love the red color and so does my friends and family.

Loving my computer. Paid extra to have next day delivery, and it arrived as scheduled with no problems. I will say that Windows 8 is taking some getting used to. Great computer so far.

My only experience with Dell was through a desktop, which was terrible, so I was hesitant at first to purchase this laptop. I based my purchase on the specs and price I was willing to pay and this laptop was the best choice for me. I'm quite comfortable with the Windows 8, although it did take some getting used to, it's just something new to learn, no big deal. I viewed the Windows 8 how to and it was easy sailing from there.

Haven't had anything to complain for. Though Windows 8 can be a little bit complicated to get used to.

This Dell 17R laptop is fantastic! As a fulltime student, I need a reliable laptop. The size of the screen on this laptop is amazing, it allows me to focus better while completing homework because my eyes do not get distracted with what is going on around me. I use this computer as my desktop at home, and it is so reliable, I have not had one problem with it since I bought it. The processing speed and capacity to download are so fast compared to my older Dell laptop. Watching a movie on HD makes a huge difference, in fact watching movies on my computer is BETTER than my HD flatscreen television. Another fantastic feature is that the volume turns up really loudly, so you do not even need to attach speakers in order to watch a movie. (Amazing right??))) The charger for this computer lights up in blue, so you know that the computer is plugged in and charging. I would recommend this computer to anyone and everyone!

I bought this laptop, ultimately to replace my 10 year old desktop that was on its last leg. I got it with the upgraded processor and video card. The HD screen is beautiful and crisp. The number keypad was a great surprise that I didn't realize I was getting, especially since I do accounting work from home and now don't have to use my USB keypad. Although it's HUGE (I was used to my husband's 15-inch Dell) it's relatively lightweight - lighter than my husband's, and quite thin. My only complaint, if there is one, is that the lid doesn't latch. Not a real biggie for me, but it could be a concern for someone else. Just a note on the speakers - I did read some reviews about them being "on the bottom." They aren't exactly on the bottom - they're underneath the front lip. So, even sitting flat on a desk or table, they are not covered up. I have had no issues with them, even cranking up the volume on a song a couple days ago, and the sound was great. If you're looking for some amazing surround sound, etc., then I would guess you would be buying a gaming computer anyway.

I needed a new laptop as the video card on my old Inspiron died. I decided to go with Dell again and again went with a refurbished laptop instead of new as I was able to get more hardware for less money. PROS The Inspiron 17R Laptop came in a timely manner and it has been awesome since I turned it on. It has a great amount of memory and a great processor to really give me the speed I desire. With The VGA output I can hook it up to my flat screen and enjoy online videos on my big screen TV. CONS I knew getting a refurbished Laptop meant there might be some form of "Cosmetic" damage, and, Yes, on the right side corner it is cracked from where it had obviously been dropped, This was not mentioned in the description when I purchased it and at first I was kinda leery about it, but in the last few months I have had it, I hardly notice it now. Review I am really pleased with this purchase and at how much better Windows 7 is than Vista. It is definitely worth looking into a refurbished model if you are on a budget but want to get something with some power under the hood.
