I have this notebook. Got it in perfect condition second-hand. I needed a good laptop for my Graphics (Game Engine) programming. I was not sure if i5 with HD 4000 would be enough. But I was wrong. The only thing I have upgraded is - I have added 250 GB SSD which makes this laptop ultra fast. Very happy with it. I use external monitor too, so low screen res on it is not an issue as I am a programmer, not a graphics designer. Overall amazing build quality, super slim size and fast given you add an SSD to it.
I've bought dell vostro 3360 i5 (Ivy) 8 gb ram and I'm very happy. I'll change HDD to SSD and I'm sure it will fly ) Very good computer for work and studies and also you will manage to play games. I'm playing League of Legend, Left 4 dead and similar games without lags. FOR THAT PRICE you can get something very similar to MACbook Air. Very good ultrabook! And I had no problem with booting or something like this.
Slimmed Vostro. Dell has not only reworked its smallest, 13 inch scion from the business sector, it has also been put a radical diet. This leads to a mostly successful symbiosis of office laptop and ultrabook that will particularly appeal to students and business travelers.
