Title: First Laptop Purchase
Posted04 October 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
This was our first purchase of a laptop. My wife and I are the users - Our old Dell desktop went to the basement rec-room for the kids to have their own computer. We are very pleased with this purchase. We decided on a Dell due to the history of the company, internet reviews and payment options. We mainly use our new 17R Inspiron for daily internet surfing & shopping, email, some gaming and video streaming. Overall very impressed with this laptop. Speed is great. Screen is crystal clear. Battery life is getting better as we learn display modes and new ways of saving battery life (power settings). We would recommend Dell to family & friends for sure. Dell Customer Service and ease of transaction was another plus. Added some extras during the build process and everything came as purchased and expected.
Pros... convenience (no more desk in our living room), 17.3" screen, speed and clarity.
Cons... no back lit keyboard (had to purchase a small clip-on LED) This repeated keyboard issue in most of the reviews should be addressed by Dell as this would have be a 5 star rating had this not been a con of this high-end laptop.
Overall, price for function is a perfect fit for our requirements. Thank you Dell.
Pros:Gaming, streaming movies / music, downloading / uploading, shopping
