I bought this machine and I seriously wish I hadn't. Minor bugs abound, making me want to smash it on a regular basis. The touchpad randomly disables itself, no, I'm not doing it by leaning on a function key, I checked. I love the fact that it switches easily to portrait display, but it's a shame this stops the touchpad working. No, it's not the case that I just need to use it at 90 degrees, I could do that. It just straight up doesn't work.
THe "12 months free antivirus" that I was forced to buy, "included in the price," actually expired after 30 days, to be replaced with nagware. Dell customer service don't care. Oh, and the touchpad buttons are loud, stiff, and clunky. Other reviewers mentioned this, and I thought "who cares?" Well, I care. This machine sucks.
This laptop has lot of problems with the Wifi adapter specially on Windows 8 Once away from the router 3 meters it will lose connection with the router and shows a very low/weak signal. This is my experience with this laptop.. very frustrating ! N.B.: I have the latest drivers installed..
Hello Team. I am looking forward to buy this laptop and therefore, i have searched out for it over internet a little bit. I have come across posts with a specific problem with this laptop that "switching between Intel and AMD GPU is not possible even after updating the drivers." Is there really an issue with this laptop? how you guys managed to bypass this flaw? Hoping to hear from you guys soon.
This appears to be nearly identical to the Latitude 3540. Except the Latitude has VGA (instead of HDMA), a 1080p anti-glare screen and a Radeon HD 8850m GPU. Any chance you guys could review the Latitude 3540? In North America it's on sale for ~$775US, which make it a pretty sweet gaming laptop.
Refreshed. A touchscreen alongside Intel's latest Haswell CPUs is to boost the appeal of Dell's refreshed Inspiron 15R. Outstanding battery runtimes and low emissions speak for the 15 incher. But can that compensate the omitted dedicated graphics card?
