I bought one of these machines yesterday. Brought it home, opened it up, set it up and began. Straight out of the box this unit was slow and not at all up to par in responsiveness. I got out my Acer Aspire One netbook and set them right beside each other. Went to the same video on youtube and hit play at the same time. My 2 year old netbook put this thing to shame! The Dell Inspiron was slow in loading, buffering through the entire video as my little netbook played straight through without as much as a stutter. Took an extra 1:38 seconds to play a 5 minute video. Also I decided to try the webcam so I messaged a friend on yahoo. Every time I said something they said "What?" "Huh?" So I start to hunt for the mic, finally found it on the bottom of the unit pointing down into the depths of my lap. Honestly, I am not very demanding of a computer, but this thing is garbage. I took it back this morning and bought a Lenovo B570-1068a and I am in love with it! It makes the Dell look like a speak and spell! Take my advice, Dont buy this machine, it is a glorified calculator!
