Solid notebook for the price but Windows 8 is an ABOMINATION! OK so, my new Dell Inspiron 15 i15RV-8524BLK arrived yesterday well packed in a double box. My old portie is a Dell Inspiron E1505 and it has been a decent portie thru the years so I thought I would give a new one a try. I knew I would be replacing Windows 8 when I bought it (I am a tech expert).PROS: The price is good for the hardware you get: 6GB RAM, i5 cpu, HD4000 graphics, HDMI, USB 3, etc. The build quality seems good, cover is a nice matte finish that doesn’t show finger prints, full numeric keypad, keyboard has a nice feel. Fast and quiet with good battery life from the 6-cell battery. It is thin and light.CONS: Hardware has improved so much over the years but the display on this new one is only 1366×768 compared to the 7 year old E1505 with 1280×800. Not a big deal to me but it seems like there should be better default displays by now. I miss the old media control buttons on the front edge of the E1505. Touchpad is very hard to use/get the hang…

Nice computer – touchpad gives me problems though Nice computer that does everything I want so no problem there. I don’t game, just use for internet and basic programs.My biggest complaint is with the touchpad. It is either too large or sits too far to the right or both. The palm of my hand touches it and sends the cursor somewhere else on the page (twice while typing this so far). Guess I can disable and use a mouse or use better posture.The keyboard is a minor problem and may just be me. I would suggest checking out a Dell at a store though to see if you may have the same problem. Looks like many models use the same layout.The other thing is Windows 8 (does anyone remember “New Coke” or “Pepsi Clear”). It is terrible but many have complained about it so I won’t go into detail. It is so bad I almost returned the computer.I have since downloaded a shell that gives the look of older versions of Windows and also have done some tweeks so I have been able to get by pretty well and…

Good For a basic “off the shelf” laptop, this Inpiron is amazing. I did nothing to customize it. Bought it “as is.” So far so good. It is quick. Battery life is good.
