So far is is a clean nice machine for its price, with wifi, bluetooth, usb ports, SD reader, and a nice wide screen.
1. The wifi adapter is not built in the motherboard, and couldn't be automatically detected hence I got problems installing its driver.
2. The driver for the card was not included with the included drivers disc, and I had to go back to the Dell distributor to configure it, where then provided the driver.
3. Comparing it to the latitude, it is not as rugged, the screen doesn't have a lock button, no extra pointing device like the latitude, and the keyboard layout is not as nice as the latitude, especially with the layout of the home, end, page up, page down.
Buy it if you are on low budget and need something good to work on.
Opt out to a latitude family if you can afford it. period.
