I had been searching all over for the perfect laptop for my use (somewhat heavy multitasking, gaming, etc.) and just couldn't find the right one. Then I saw the Inspiron 15R and I knew it would be perfect. The processor is insanely fast (which means quick boot times), the hard drive is plentiful, and the Intel HD Graphics actually beat my desktop's ATI Radeon HD 4200 in the WEI (4.5 vs. 4.2). I think the function keys are great because I rarely have to use F1, F2, F3, etc. but always want to change the volume or turn off WiFi (when I'm on the road). The computer has very nice build quality but the one complaint I have is that the palm rests/lid catch fingerprints really easily. Besides that, this laptop is probably the best deal for the specs it comes with. I would highly suggest this to normal-to-heavy users!

My laptop was delivered a week before it said it would be (you must be home to sign for it, UPS ground won't just leave it). I stream a lot of TV shows with google chrome cast and my previous laptop wasn't fast enough for it to cast & I had to use a USB cord, with this I can cast and play games or be online doing other things at the same time. It will slow it down just a little though. It does have blue tooth, but it does not have a touch screen (the windows 8 description made it sound like it did, but it doesn't. Windows 8 takes a little getting use to, I just use the desk top feature which is what my other lap top looked like. When you log on with the sign in screen, the side numb pad numlock isn't activated and can mess up your password sign in, I just use the numbers along the top. There isn't a light on the num lock to tell you whether it's on or not. I had checked with my IT friends before buying it and they loved it. One recommended this to his sister and she bought 3 for her work. I love it!

I purchased N5010 with the following configuration: i5-450, 4GB RAM, 320 GB HD, 1 GB Dedicated Graphics Card. The windows rating it showed was 5.8(Thats low just because of my HD capacity i.e.320 GB and partly because of the rpm which is 5400. Anyways DELL doesnt allow to choose 7200 rpm for its Inspiron Model) Pros: 1. I got my system 2 days prior to the estimated delivery date. I got my system within 8 week days of placing the order 2. The design is just superb...I have fallen in love with system Cons: 1. Dell doesnt ship the OS DVD with the Model. Though the system allows to create recovery disk but what if i want to change the Hard disk partition by reinstalling Windows(i.e. formatting the hard disk). I dont want to keep just one partition. So Since the customers are purchasing the OS, i personally think DELL should start Shipping the OS DVD with the system or atleast keep the ISO image on the HD. Even that would do. Anyways as promised by DELL got a nice, powerful machine. Thanks DELL.

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

This laptop ordered from Walmart arrived earlier than we anticipated. The device is lightning fast and while Windows 8.1 takes awhile to understand, the price was great and this laptop was well worth the research we did and the deal was the best out there. It is hard to beat the prices and service from Walmart.

Pros - I already had an Inspiron 15R and was thrilled to see they were still available when my partner needed a new laptop. Her old Dell was dying, and she was concerned she would go into withdrawal if we didn't get a replacement soon. I ordered this system and it arrived two days later, so she was saved! Cons - I have had occasional "hangs" where the system will freeze up for a couple of minutes, but then everything returns to normal. This system is heavier than the 10" Dell Netbooks we used to travel with, but worth the extra power and screen size. I have purchased nothing but Dell computers for the last 10 years, both for home and business use. I wouldn't use anything else! We use them for hours each day and both love them. We use them for internet browsing, video streaming, Facebook, email, video and photo editing, publishing, webpage maintenance, Skype, word processing, spreadsheets and many other uses. We are currently visiting the Czech Republic and wouldn't have thought of leaving them behind.
