Yes, I would recommend this product
It has been a month since I bought this computer and Dell mouse in December of 2012 and started migrating business and programming stuff from a Win2K system with a CRT monitor. I have not reached for my glasses once while using the Inspiron and my old monitor now looks terrible. Amazing that I did not notice before.
The computer starts fast, and applications launch quickly. I finally have a computer that can keep up with me.
I needed Publisher and so I use Windows Office with Publisher, but also ran the free LibreOffice. I had one problem with Word asking to save underlying templates but "File, Options, Add-ins, Manage COM Add-ins, Go" allows you to disable any COM add-in that might be causing that problem.
Of great importance to me was being able to do software development. In the past week I updated my homegrown JavaScript, PHP, HTML4 website to HTML5 using 64 bit WampServer (w/Apache), Aptana, CSDiff, and all the major browsers and the new SeaMonkey (which is what I used for email on the old system - MozBackup transferred all that data). (Microsoft has a free sdk, too, and there is Netbeans and others.)
I found answers for my concerns about Windows 8 on the internet, and I like the Win8 desktop functionality now and everything works fine. (I even found a way to get some old software running so that I did not need to learn a new graphics editor and programmer's text editor.)
I bought the Netgear Router R6300 and it is in the basement next to the old computer while I am 2 and half floors up using the WiFi all day. Win2K does not seem to connect to the router's printer and flashdrive port (our XP system and this Win8 system can), but I do not need that feature because I set up internet connections to the old computer to share its printer and transfer files.
After a month of working with this computer, I think it is a really great system whether for personal use, business, or programming. I am very productive with this system, and I am able to do everything that I wanted to do with the system.
Pros:software development, business
