solid daily computer

Customer review by FrankFlip

On the first see, you would think this is a polished laptop. Even when you open the cover, before you turned on the power. A metal cover and metal face beside the keyboard. If you did not see clearly on the photo gallery, you would not see the exactly width of the screen. The bezel is slim (10mm), if you turn off the computer. The effective screen is 7 mm away from the bezel. Therefore the screen looks really odd. The screen makes this laptop 20mm wider than my old dell XPS15. Other than this, the touch screen is responsive, bright. The bottom cover is a piece of big thin plastic board, only 2 screws installed, so it is not a solid bottom. The vent is on the bottom only. I would not use it on my bed or on any soft surface. When you lift the laptop up from your desk, the noise sounds louder. Other than these shortcomings, the build quality, design, speed is above the average in its category. It is a good computer for student who need better performance or a substitute of you old desktop.

Have the Inspiron 5547. The 5000 series has two issues that I am experiencing (there is no software solution to this date as per dell forums). 1. Touchpad stops working all of a sudden and you must reboot or close the laptop to regain mouse stability and gesures. This appears to be a hardware issue. Also using a blow dryer (on hot) over the touchpad instantly restores use of mouse and gestures.You may want to remove the battery and do the same from the back. Another solution suggested is to place a protective screen cover over the touchpad. Most people that had this issue had the touch screen version of this laptop. 2. The wireless range is laughable. A long as you are only a few feet from the router you are OK. Move a few more and you can barely connect. On Dell forums there is speculation that this is a design flow. You may want to buy a mini USB wireless adapter. Laptop looks very nice and boots very fast. Although I love its shape and performance I cannot recommend it due to these issues.

Can't beat the value

Great laptop, the only issue I have (but I knew it before I purchased) is the 100mbit ethernet. I just prefer cables, so a gigabit connection would have been nice. This can be fixed with a usb3.0 adapter though. Make sure you invest in an AC router if transfer speeds on your home network matter to you, it makes a massive difference! If you're only using the networking capability to connect to the internet, then it's not an issue. The lack of a CD drive could be an issue for some, but I've used a cd/dvd about 3 times on a home computer over the past two years, and will probably use it less. You can buy a CD/DVD drive for about $30 if you really need one. Other than that, the laptop is great value for money. I didn't buy this as a games machine, but it's nice to know I can play them when I want. It's a great work/home/internet/virtual machine/study box. I use this machine (1tb hdd, 16gb ram) for developement / virtual machines and study, and it suits that perfectly.

Awesome High end slim Laptop

Well I bought this laptop for 63k because it has i7/8gb/1tb/2gb/FHD TOUCH and Backlit keyboard. The touch is awesome. The keyboard has backlit but the keyboard is totally awesome with perfect gap between them, which i find as awesome. The battery lasts for 5-6 hours.My 2 other friends have the same product without touch they say it last for 6 hours and so. There i7 4510U(I compromised with 5th gen processor) processor in my laptop. 2 3.0 USB and 1 2.0 USB. The weight of the laptop is around 2.5-2.6 kg you wont find it that heavy because the weight is uniformly distributed.The battery is non removable but unscrewing of 2 screws at the bottom pannel gives you access to battery(L shaped) RAM,wireless connector,and others.I have installed Windows 10 and it works flawlessly. The fan is totally quiet. But when you`ll be gaming it will be heard.Other than that its totally quiet. Its an awesome Laptop :) If you wanna buy this then i recommend it. The same model comes with 5th gen processor with 4gb graph..and with intel realsense 3D camera.

Not the best computer

This is not a very good computer. It is way too sensitive. I can just be moving my cursor and it will open new pages while on the Internet which is very frustrating as things pop up all over. Then on the other side, when I want to click something, the spot I have to push is at the very corner of the mouse pad and often takes several attempts (even after adjusting the mouse pad sensitivity). It has a number keypad which I didn't realize so everything on the keyboard is off center. If you are truly using as a laptop, it is not properly centered on your lap. The battery life seems to be about 2 hours after only two months. It says it has 6hours of life but then it drains in about 2 hours...even if not being used. Windows 8 is very unstable. It changes my desktop color for no reason...It was blue and then the last two days it has changed to black. I didn't like that I had to create a Microsoft account just so I could sign on to my computer. Overall, I would Not recommend this touch screen computer, it just was not well tested.

Here's my story: The initial boot screen was black with 8 beeps in a constant cycle. After a couple of false starts I finally was transferred to a woman who had me remove the back plate and battery and attempt to boot with just the ac adapter attached. No go. She set up an in home appointment with a tech and mailed out a replacement screen a few minutes later. After hearing all the negative reports about Dells tech support I was very impressed. So the next day the tech shows and discovers that the display was not properly attached to the case. With the computer in pieces I noticed that the attention to detail in the build was lacking. It's now been 2 days and I've added an SSD with 16 Meg of RAM. The machine has been running almost constantly as I've set it up. All is good. The machine is flying with the upgrades. So my advice is to go ahead and buy with an eye towards finding a glitch in the build. I'm very experienced with computers which has been a big help in navigating the build. Hope my impressions have ben of value.

When i first saw this laptop and its price i thought it was too good to be true turns out i was right. Right off the bat the laptop would be freezing, none of my apps were opening at certain times. the mouse would be unresponsive at times. switching between allowing me to use it like an apple mac mouse and then it would go to me not being able to do so. system was continuously faulty. After about a months worth of use however i began to find loop holes within these problems and how i could avoid them or work around them. the laptop works well for every day tasks and when the system complies can allow you to do some actual work. however Currently after 11 months of use my biggest and most annoying problem on this laptop is not being able to download certain engineering softwares such as solid works. which is a huge annoyance. I have tried contacting the service department but they constantly bounce me around from department to department. just recently one of the screws from the hinges of my laptop has fallen out contradictory to their

Wonderful Computer

I've had this computer for about six months now and it's a really great machine. I got it non-touch screen. I use it for pretty basic stuff, but I have a bad habit of multi-tasking to the extreme and keeping a ton of programs open at once, but it still runs quickly and nicely. I'm very happy with the computer, I'm glad I got this. I'm a college student, and it does everything I need it to and more. The keyboard is really nice, the keys are very light and thin and responsive, which makes it easy to type, and type fast. The power button is a little hard to push sometimes, which is a little strange, but not inconveniently so. I haven't had any issues with the computer so far. I did uninstall "fastaccess" which is the facial recognition software because I found that it was sometimes inconvenient to have to be sitting at the desk in order to log in, rather than standing or leaning to type in a password. The computer is attractive visually, and it is slim and not too heavy, although it's certainly noticeable when I have it in a backpack.

I purchased my Dell Inspiron 5547 to run SolidWorks, Adobe products, Maya, and other 3D applications, in addition to the other standard office applications. I considered the Alien series, but too bulky and I am an older person, I don't need all the flash. The machine has the new Intel processor, new low power, and high performance processor, thanks to Intel's latest process technology, it is a real asset for this arrangement. Dell has nicely matched the performance with the features on this fine computer. The touch screen is great for showing the 3D graphics user experience. I don't use that feature all the time, but is sure is great when you need it. The backlit keyboard and feel is great, I like the brushed aluminum case and all of the features it has. I would like to see the holster for a micro-flash card, rather than having the full size sticks out on the side. But, a minor point. Dell knows how to build laptops, it is a great machine.

This is the 3rd Dell laptop that I have owned and I have had several over the years at work serving me well in both areas. All in all, this seems like a solid computer. However, I absolutely cannot stand the new touch pad that this model comes with. I believe the issue is that it is all one piece and not separately broken into a touchpad, a left, and right button like my last Dell laptop. I have had the computer for a couple of months now and have tried giving it time to get used to, but I continue to be frustrated by this feature, so much so that I actually put it away and get my old, slow, and ready to crash at any minute Dell out and use it instead. Also, it does not connect wirelessly to my android phone for tethering like my old Dell does. I have to use my USB cable in order to tether. Pros> solid operating system, fast, lots of storage, decent performance for the price. Cons> touch pad (extremely cumbersome), and wireless tethering (does not work) Bottom line> frustrating enough that I would shop around before buying again.
